CIMPA Research School — Rencontres du Vietnam – Noncommutative Geometry and Applications to Quantum Physics

"Our school aims to promote Noncommutative Geometry in Southeast Asia. Many students from this region could attend the School and we think we succeeded in getting them interested in this research topic. We chose to talk about Noncommutative Geometry both as a subject of research in mathematics and in physics..."

Developing science in Southeast Asia

In this interview Prof. Thierry Masson speaks about developing science in Southeast Asia after his recent experience in organising a CIMPA Research School at the ICISE conference center. Thierry Masson talking about developing science in Southeast Asia Prof. Thierry Masson is a CNRS researcher in mathematical physics at the "Centre de Physique Théorique" in Marseille, France. He was a member of the local organizing committee of the 2017 CIMPA Research School — Rencontres du Vietnam -  Noncommutative Geometry and Applications to Quantum Physics. He accepted to answer our questions about developing science in Southeast Asia in respect of his research field, Noncommutative geometry. Which is your field of research? I work on the geometric and algebraic structures related to fundamental physics, mainly in gauge field theories. I am involved in a vivid reseach activity in mathematics named "Noncommutative Geometry", whose purpose is to study new mathematical structures combining geometry, algebra and analysis. We hope to make use of these structures in physics to solve pending...

Opening of the Science Avenue at the ICISE conference center

“Science Avenue” is now the name of the road leading to the ICISE conference center and the Explora Science Center,  which is being built not very far from the ICISE conference center. On July 27th, 2017, a ceremony for the opening of the “Science Avenue” took place with the presence of many scientists, the ICISE President and staff as well as local authorities. Professor Geraldus’t Hooft, Physics Nobel laureate in 1999, who attended the ceremony,  made a short but interesting speech for this occasion: "It is a great honor for me to join the "Science Avenue" Opening Ceremony today with all of you, great scientists and science supporters. This "Science Avenue" does not only lead us to the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) in Quy Nhon - Viet Nam, but it also paves the way for us towards the deepest understanding of our living environment, the universe. I would like to take this moment to thank Professor Van and...

Huge potential for Vietnam research, Prof. Soramel says (Padova, Italy)

An interview to Prof. Francesca Soramel, full professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Padua by Enrico Belli. “Last year I attended an international conference at the ICISE conference center” says Prof. Francesca Soramel, a full professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Padua University. I met her in Padua, Italy. While sitting at a bar sipping a cup of coffee in Altinate street in downtown Padova, Quy Nhon seemed to me just a block away. Could you please tell me about your experience in Vietnam? After visiting Vietnam, I changed my mind about the country and that region. As a consequence, I am now searching for Vietnamese students who are willing to attend the master degree in Physics here in Padova. Well, could you please start from the beginning? Every year I usually attend a new conference about adjacent topics in my research field. Last year I chose a conference at the ICISE conference center with a very interesting...
