13th Rencontres du Vietnam – Exploring the dark Universe – July 23-29, 2017 – Quy Nhon, Vietnam

The Rencontres du Vietnam on Exploring the Dark Universe will review the current status of the field of Dark Matter research. The conference will see around 100 participants congregate to discuss subjects including:

  • Direct and indirect dark matter search experiments
  • BSM physics and DM candidates
  • Astrophysics and  Cosmology
  • DM searches at the LHC
  • Future detectors

The new International Center of Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) has been constructed in Quy Nhon, Central Vietnam, and inaugurated in August 2013.

Two members of the Collaboration will be attending the conference with the following presentations:

  • Gas detectors for Dark Matter Detection – Daniel Santos (LPSC, Grenoble, France)
  • NEWS-G results and project at SNOLAB – Gilles Gerbier (Queen’s University, Kingston, ON, Canada)
