Riceviamo, e volentieri pubblichiamo:
We are happy to invite you to attend the conference “Windows on the Universe” which will be held in Quy Nhon, Center of Vietnam, from 11 to 17 August 2013 on the occasion of the inauguration of the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science and Education (ICISE). This conference is co-organized by the Ministry of Science and Tevhnology and the Association Rencontres du Vietnam.
Details on scientific program, logistic and registration are given at the conference website: http://vietnam.in2p3.fr/2013/Inauguration/
Among the physicists, who have already confirmed their participation and will make a presentation are Jerome Friedman, Sheldon Glashow, David Gross, Rolf Heuer, Klaus von Klitzing, Carlo Rubbia, George Smoot and Jack Steinberger. Other leaders in the field were invited – we expect to hear from them soon.
The program, based on presentations of the most recent experimental and theoretical results on High Energy Physics and Astrophysics, will begin with a special event on the Inauguration day, Monday August 12 morning:
The importance of fundamental science
– Sheldon Glashow : High Energy Physics
– Klaus von Klitzing ; Nanoscience- the basis for new applications
– Rolf Heuer : Highlights from LHC
– Jean-Loup Puget : Highlights from Planck
The two first talks are mostly wide-public and media oriented in order to promote fundamental science in the emerging countries.
The aim of the Center is to promote scientific exchanges and to share the scientific and educational experiences between developed and developing countries and we hope that with the help of the international scientific community, it will become a places of Rencontres as Rencontres de Moriond and Rencontres de Blois and contribute to the development of Science and Education in the South-East Asia area. Your presence at this conference is a great honour for all of us and in particular for the scientific community in Vietnam..
Looking forward to seeing you in Vietnam,
Tran Thanh Van
