1st Meeting of Young Vietnamese Community of Astronomy (YVCA), 21-22 December 2017, Paris-France


I. Overview
1st Meeting of Young Vietnamese Community of Astronomy (YVCA), 21-22 December 2017, Paris - France

We organise for the first time a scientific meeting for Young Vietnamese scientists working in the fields of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology. The meeting aims to gather master, Ph.D. students, postdocs, and senior researchers in the Vietnamese Astronomy community not only to present their scientific works but also share their experience in doing research. The meeting goal is to foster connection among community scientists, to promote interdisciplinary discussion, and to provide ground for potential collaboration. We hope to make the meeting as an annual event for the Vietnamese Astronomy community.

A broad range of topics will be covered: Satellite technology, remote sensing, exoplanets, star formation, galactic & extragalactic, large-scale structure, Big Bang universe, dark matter, dark energy, black hole, etc...

For the format, we will have remote off-line sessions at locations where there are more than three Vietnam astronomers to ensure better interaction. The offline meeting venue is AstroParticle and Cosmology Laboratory (APC) - Paris Diderot (Paris 7) France. Besides that, all sessions will be broadcasted live. 

* After the meeting, speakers are asked to provide 2, 3 or 4 pages of their work in English and Vietnamese to make "a letter book".
* Coffee breaks and the lunches are sponsored by AstroParticle and Cosmology Laboratory (APC) - Paris Diderot (Paris 7).
