August 21 - 27, 2022, ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam


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.

Star Formation in different environments 2022: OUR LUCKY NEWBORN STARS
August 22 - 26, 2022, ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam


To continue the SFDE series that were organized in 2016 and 2017 held in ICISE, Quy Nhon, Vietnam, we will get together again in 22-26 August 2022 to discuss the recent progress in star formation. From 20-21 August, there will be a bootcamp for young students. The conference will highlight the recent advances in all directions in observations, numerical simulations, and theory of star formation in different environments, from individual star to galaxy systems. The idea is to search for a universal picture of star formation across all scales and also identify the characteristics of each individual scale. The conference will cover all aspects of star formation, including core-collapse, turbulence, chemistry, magnetic field, filaments, converging flows and cloud-cloud-collision.

The goal of the conference is to share the different views from different research communities by balancing contributions from different categories and to encourage collaborations between researchers across the Globe. Ample time is set aside to encourage discussions and collaboration. The meeting consists of invited reviews, invited talks, contributed talks, and posters. The conference also aims at fostering close collaboration via smaller size focus group discussion and excursion. There is also a bootcamp training school prior to the conference for local students.



Participants are encouraged to write up their contributions as proceeding papers, which will be published by the peer-reviewed journal “Stars and Galaxies” which is run by Professor Yoichi Itoh as the Editor-in-Chief and operated by the Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory, Center for Astronomy, University of Hyogo, Japan.
