First Rencontres du Vietnam – Soft Matter Science
At the anniversary ceremony, Professor Tran Thanh Van, the founder of Rencontres du Vietnam, recalled the arduous journey to realise an idea that many had previously considered crazy. He said that after visiting many provinces in the search for a suitable site to achieve his dream in , Professor Van finally arrived in Binh Dinh province and asked for help from the provincial leaders. In the past ten years, ICISE has been the venue for 40 international science events, attended by thousands of scientists, including 12 Nobel-winning professors and two Fields medallists. The centre has also begun work on a scientific research and interdisciplinary education institution and is hosting two groups of young researchers on astrophysics, theoretical physics and neutrino physics. Former Binh Dinh Party Secretary Vu Hoang Ha recalled that at that time he was concerned about the organisation of the centre but after understanding the passion of Professor Van and his wife, he decided to help them.
On-site registration will start on Sunday July 14 th at The opening session is scheduled to take place on Monday July 15 th at The conference will end on Friday July 19 th at All participants are required visas to visit Vietnam, except for a few exemptions.
Since 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 will have 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 Rencontres du Vietnam on the evolution of gas and dust content from evolved stars to young stars would like to bring together astronomers working on the circumstellar environment of evolved stars, astronomers working on star and planet forming regions and planetologists working on the origin of the solar system. A common conference bringing all together these communities should provide a better understanding of the cycle of gas and dust from old stars to young ones, in particular, to our young Sun and its planetary system.
