This school belongs to a series of schools originating from a school created in 1994 by Nguyen Van Hieu and Tran Thanh Van and funded by Rencontres du Vietnam. It became an international school in 1995 with participation of Vietnamese and foreign students. The school is also funded by the Asia-Pacific Centre for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), Pohang, Korea and the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Italy as an external activity.
The 28th VSOP will be devoted to particle physics and dark matter, both theory and experiment. In addition to fundamental knowledge of Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model (SM), the lectures will cover theories beyond the SM, dark matter, experimental methods for collider searches at the LHC, Monte Carlo methods, and machine learning.
