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.

(To locate ICISE, open a Google Earth window and just type International Center of Interdisciplinary Science Education in the Search field.)

  The 25th Anniversary Conference of the Rencontres du Vietnam on Windows on the Universe will consist of 2 twin conferences:
Windows on the Universe: Particle Physics

Windows on the Universe: Astrophysics.

The conference will consist of plenary common sessions and on separate sessions, alternating every day. The common sessions will focus on invited indepth oral presentations (review talks and talks on specific specialised topics), while the separate sessions will also be open to contributed papers, in the form of relatively short oral papers. 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)
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)
