We will aim to achieve a balance between review talks given by recognised specialists, and shorter contributions, special emphasis being placed on active participation by younger researchers and post-docs. Parallel sessions are foreseen, and are being organised as the need arises.
This will be part of a series of international meetings held regularly in Vietnam, created by Jean Tran Thân Van in 1993. Their purpose is to stimulate the development of advanced research in Vietnam and more generally in South East Asia, and to establish collaborative research networks with Western scientific communities. All sessions take place in the Seagull Hotel, where participants are also lodged. Meals are served in the hotel to all participants.
The conference is supported in part by the ExtreMe Matter Institute EMMI at GSI, Darmstadt (Germany), the grant PARTONPROP from the French funding agency ANR, and the European funding agency ERC.
