Since 1993 the Rencontres du Vietnam , which is an official partner of UNESCO, has organised international scientific conferences and schools to foster exchanges between Vietnamese or Asia-Pacific scientists and colleagues from other parts of the world.

The construction of the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) in the city of Quy Nhon (Central Vietnam) will have the ambitious objective to focus on developing Science and Education, helping young Asian students and scientists to meet with the International Science community, bringing the opportunity to accelerate their knowledge from attending lectures and sharing ideas with overseas high-level counterparts.

XVth Rencontres du Vietnam
International Conference on Medical Physics and School

July 28th – August 3rd, 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

Conference venue

The conference will be organized by Rencontres du Vietnam; was created by Prof. Tran Thanh Van in 1993; at the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science and Education in Vietnam (ICISE) , a scientific non-profit organization. The school will be from 27th July to 28th July 2019. The conference will be from July 29th to August 2nd 2019.
