ICISE on YouTube: video1, video2
Since 1993 the Rencontres du Vietnam , which is an official partner of UNESCO, has organised international scientific conferences and schools to foster exchanges between Vietnamese or Asia-Pacific scientists and colleagues from other parts of the world.

The construction of the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) in the city of Quy Nhon (Central Vietnam) has the ambitious objective to focus on developing Science and Education, helping young Asian students and scientists to meet with the International Science community, bringing the opportunity to accelerate their knowledge from attending lectures and sharing ideas with overseas high-level counterparts.

  The 25th Anniversary Conference of the Rencontres du Vietnam on
Windows on the Universe

will review the most recent status of Particle Physics, Astroparticle and Cosmology. The conference will consist of plenary sessions for invited indepth oral presentations (review talks and talks on specific specialised topics), and contributed papers, in the form of relatively short oral papers - in parallel sessions - or posters. Special emphasis is being placed on active participation by young researchers and post-docs.

The main topics of the conference are:
  • Particle Physics
    • Production and Properties of the Higgs Boson
    • Searches for New Physics
    • Phenomenology of Physics Beyond the Standard Model
    • Production and Properties of the Heavy Quarks
    • Studies of Electroweak and QCD physics
    • Latest Results from Heavy Ion Collisions
    • Recent Results from the Intensity Frontier
    • Neutrino Physics from the Laboratory
    • Future Facilities (Accelerators)
  • AstroParticle Physics and Cosmology
    • Gamma-Ray Astronomy : Ground-Based and Satellite Experiments
    • Cosmic Rays : Ground-Based and Satellite Experiments
    • Multi Messenger Astronomy (Neutrinos, CR and GW)
    • Dark Energy and Dark Matter
    • The Cosmic Background Radiation
    • The Early Universe
    • Large Scale Structures
    • Future Facilities (Satellites and Telescopes)
