COVID-19: We are aware that the situation with the novel coronavirus may have an impact on our conference. At this stage it is impossible to estimate what this will be. We will follow the guidance given by our host institutions, and endeavour to inform the community of any decisions with adequate notice, but in the meantime we will continue our planning under the assumption that we will be able to hold the conference at the ICISE in Quy Nhon. Because this is a discussion-centred conference, we do not plan on replacing it with video conferencing or a slides-only virtual meeting if we cannot meet in person. Please do not hesitate to register for the conference if you are planning on attending; we would fully understand if you had to withdraw your registration in the future. We strongly recommend that travel purchases that are made, if any, are refundable.

The 3rd Flavour Physics Conference will take place in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, from Sunday August 9th to Saturday August 15th 2020, at the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE).

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.
