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.)

  This year, the third Windows on the Universe conference will celebrate the 30th Anniversary Conference of the Rencontres du Vietnam. It will consist of two joint conferences:

Windows on the Universe: Particle Physics

Windows on the Universe: Astrophysics.

Note: in accordance with a decade-long tradition of the Rencontres du Vietnam, the Windows on the Universe will be held in-person only.
The Conference will include Common sessions and each conference will hold in separate parallel Plenary sessions. The "Common sessions", held each day, will consist of invited, unspecialized presentations of interest to both the Particle Physics and Astrophysics communities, while the "Plenary sessions" will be more focused and address scientific highlights of interest for each community, keeping in mind the wide range of topics addressed.
Special emphasis is being placed on active participation by young researchers (bright PhD students, postdocs, early career scientists, etc.). In particular, selected contributed talks will be presented during the Plenary sessions along with Plenary talks. More contributed talks will be accommodated in parallel sessions.

The main topics of the conference are:
Particle Physics
Precision tests of the Standard Model
Higgs boson properties
BSM searches at collider
Precision measurements in Heavy Flavor decays
Tests of CPV through EDM searches, g-2
Strong interactions physics (Heavy ions, spectroscopy...)
Fixed target experiments
Dark matter and Axion searches
New technologies and facilities
Windows on Cosmology
    e.g. CMB polarization, Large-scale structures, Hubble tension
Windows on Galaxies
    (including the Milky Way) e.g. Massive star evolution, supernovae, compact objects, cosmic rays, galactic center
Windows on Planets
    (including the Solar System) e.g. census of exoplanets, atmospheres, formation, outer solar system
