BÌNH ĐỊNH – About 80 professors, scientists and researchers from 17 countries gathered at a conference themed “Star formation in different environments” that opened at the International Centre of Interdisciplinary Science Education in Quy Nhơn City, the central province of Bình Định, yesterday. 

As part of the 13th “Rencontres du Vietnam” (Meet Vietnam) science programme, the event also featured 30 science-loving Vietnamese students from universities nationwide. 

The conference, to last until August 12, is held by the Meet Vietnam Association, the Ministry of Science and Technology and Bình Định Province People’s Committee. 

The conference will highlight recent advances in wide-field and high resolution surveys and detail numerical simulations of star formation in different environments, from individual stars to galaxy systems. The idea is to search for a universal picture of star formation across all scales and to identify the characteristics of each individual scale. 

The conference aims to share the different views from different research communities by balancing contributions from different categories and encouraging collaboration between researchers. 

Prof. Trần Thanh Vân, head of the conference’s organisation board and chairman of the Meet Vietnam Association, said the event allows domestic and international scientists to meet. 

In his opening remarks, Vice Chairman of the Bình Định Province People’s Committee Trần Châu said the 13th “Meet Vietnam” programme is expected to promote research, innovation, exploration and invention in Việt Nam. 

He added that the ongoing science space complex project promises to be an attractive rendezvous for science lovers. — VNS
