PASCOS 2016: 22nd International Symposium on Particles, Strings and Cosmology
XIIth Rencontres du Vietnam, July 10-16, 2016, ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam

The International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) will host the 22nd International Symposium on Particles, String and Cosmology (PASCOS 2016) in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, 10-16 July, 2016.

The goal of this symposium is to review and discuss recent progress in particle physics, string theory and cosmology. Following important discoveries made within the last few years, including properties of neutrino mixings, the Higgs particle, and most recently gravitational waves, it is urgent to bring together theorists and experimentalists to discuss what has been learned and what might show up in the next few years. ICISE will provide an ideal setting for both established and young physicists to present new theoretical ideas and new experimental projects.
