Founded in 1993 by Jean Tran Thanh Van, the association Rencontres du Vietnam, a non-profit organization and an official partner of UNESCO, has as its objective the promotion of international exchanges between Vietnam and the international community, particularly in the areas of science and education. It also aims at the encouragement and integration of Vietnamese scientists into the international scientific community and at supporting the role of education and science by encouraging scientific awareness and stimulating passion for science in the younger generation. The Rencontres du Vietnam lies within the scope of two series of scientific meetings created by Jean Tran Thanh Van : the Rencontres de Moriond in 1966 and the Rencontres de Blois in 1989.

The creation of the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) in the city of Quy Nhon (Central Vietnam) has the ambitious objective to focus on developing Science and Education by fostering exchanges between Asia-Pacific scientists and colleagues from other parts of the world.

New Physics with Exotic and Long-Lived Particles: A Joint ICISE-CBPF Workshop
1 – 6 July 2019
ICISE Conference Center, Quy Nhon, Vietnam

The successful establishment of a wide range of results consistent with Standard Model (SM) expectations at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and beyond has placed a renewed interest on very exotic particles and non-standard experimental signatures as potential channels for the discovery of physics beyond the SM. This workshop assembles experimentalists and theorists from around the world to assess the state of current searches for long-lived particles at the LHC and beyond; axions; dark matter candidates, including those involving alternatives to the WIMP paradigm; and to discuss potential discovery possibilities with future experiments, including linear and future circular colliders.


Long-lived particles (dark scalars; dark photons; heavy neutral leptons / right-handed neutrinos; RPV SUSY particles; stable, massive charged particles; monopoles; etc.)
Dark matter candidates (WIMPS and alternatives)
Axions and axion-like particles
Other exotic phenomena
