XVII VIETNAM SCHOOL OF PHYSICS
Particle and astroparticle physics
at the dawn of the LHC era
Hue, 18 - 24 July 2011
The 17th Vietnam School of Physics (VSOP) will be held from 18 - 24 July 2011
in coordination with the 2011 BCVSPIN.
The VSOP is a
series of annual schools starting with Rencontres du Vietnam (RdV) in 1994.
Since then it has been organized regularly by RdV and the
Institute of Physics (IOP) in various places of Viet Nam.
The participants to VSOP come mainly from Vietnam and other countries in the
Asia-Pacific region, while BCVSPIN attracts mainly students from China and
Advanced study institute in
particle physics and cosmology
Hue, 24 - 30 July 2011
The 2011 BCVSPIN will be held from 25 - 30 July 2011 in coordination with the
17th Vietnam School of Physics (VSOP).
The BCVSPIN (an acronym denoting Bangladesh, China, Vietnam, Sri Lanka,
Pakistan, India and Nepal) is a series of summer schools on high energy physics
and cosmology inaugurated in 1989 in order to allow young scientists in these
countries, who often lack access to conferences, journals, and scientific
exchange, with the opportunity to keep abreast with the newest developments in
high energy physics and cosmology.
The VSOP and the
BCVSPIN share a common goal of providing young Asian physicists with the
opportunity to learn the latest developments in physics
from experts from all over the world. With the current coordination in their
organizations in Vietnam this time, the VSOP and the BCVSPIN schools are
complementary in scope and content.
The programs of the two schools are coordinated so that the VSOP will serve as
an introduction (with fewer but longer sets of lectures) to the BCVSPIN where
more specialized lectures will be given.
The 17th VSOP and the
also share a
common registration system
and the deadline for registration for both schools is 04 April 2011 (Monday).
