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.

XVth Rencontres du Vietnam
International Conference on Medical Physics and School

July 29th – August 1st, 2019, Quy Nhon, Vietnam

Cancer is one of the major cause of deaths around the world, it is particularly true for middle to low income countries, where social security and health services are developing or non-existing. Cancer economic impact on these countries is poverty because of the treatment cost or the inability to work.
In the frame of growing interest of cancer treatment in Vietnam and South East Asia. We are glad to announce the first south east Asia conference on medical physics. The conference goal aim is to gather physicists, medical physicists and physicians at all levels to discuss the ways to fight efficiently the disease with an emphasis on radiotherapy and particle therapy. It will be also an opportunity to create networks among the delegates. The conference will be preceded by a school aiming to gather young researchers of the field.
We invite you to contribute to program, to propose new ideas and present results in friendly and relax atmosphere where discussion and exchange are the foremost goal. Please submit your abstract at :

Topics : Radiotherapy, proton therapy, hadrontherapy, Quality assurance, Imaging Instrumentation, simulations, radio isotopes for imaging and therapy
