The 26th Vietnam School of Physics (VSOP-26): November 29 - December 11, 2020.
Quy Nhon, Vietnam
Practical information and compact lecture schedule: here.
Online discussion platform (chat, sharing files, additional info): here.
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, as an external activity.
The 26th 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.
Location: ICISE center, located by the sea and surrounded by mountains, about 6km from the city of Quy Nhon. The lecture hall is equipped with a video projector, a blackboard, audio system, wireless connection. ICISE has a nice, quiet campus with palm trees and a beautiful beach.
