1 July 2020: It is with the deepest regret that we are cancelling our conference for 2020. The committee had been hoping that the situation surrounding COVID globally might improve, allowing us to hold our conference as planned, but following recent developments, we have realised this will not be possible.                                                                                                           As a conference that focuses on face-to-face discussion, we will not be moving online, and hope to organise a meeting in Quy Nhon in 2021, conditions permitting.                                                                                                           Please use the form in the menu below to register your interest, and we will keep you up-to-date with news on the next conference in the series.

The 3rd Flavour Physics Conference was to have taken place in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, from Sunday August 9th to Saturday August 15th 2020, at the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE). The original description for the conference follows:

The meeting is intended to promote fruitful collaboration between experimentalists and theorists, between physicists in the areas of:

  • Searches for New Physics including the Dark Sector
  • Phenomenology of Physics Beyond the Standard Model
  • Beauty and Charm physics
  • Kaon physics
  • Tau and Muon physics
  • Neutrino physics
  • CP violation
  • Rare decays
  • Future facilities

from institutions across the world, by bringing together a limited number of particle physicists in beautiful and inspiring surroundings. A particular emphasis will be made on searches for new physics which complement direct studies at the LHC.

Expert speakers who will introduce the different areas include:

  • Giancarlo D'Ambrosio (INFN Naples)
  • Lorenzo Calibbi (Nankai University)
  • Pilar Hernandez (University of Valencia)
  • Massimo Passera (INFN Padova)
  • Luca Silvestrini (INFN Rome 1)
  • Phillip Urquijo (University of Melbourne)

In addition to having plenty of discussion, we will be producing a jointly-authored paper together during the conference which summarises these and the state of the field. We are looking forward to the participation of those who will be able to actively engage in the discussions and paper-writing sessions, and in turn believe that this will make for a rewarding and fruitful experience for all.

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.
