Held from 11 to 16 July at the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science and Education (ICISE) in Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh Province (Central), the International Scientific Symposium “Topological Quantum Electron Interacting Personally” (Topological quantum electrons that interact personally) is the first event of the International Year of Fundamental Sciences for Sustainable Development, whose official launch ceremony took place on 8 July and was organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Theorists and experimentalists working in the electronic properties of quantum materials highlight in about thirty scientific reports the latest developments in the study of the equilibrium and non-equilibrium properties of new quantum materials such as: topological states of matter, twisted bilayer systems, magnetic materials, TMDs ( transition metal dichalcogenides), superconductors, quantum phenomena in mesoscopic systems, etc. The technological aspects of these topics will also be discussed.

Motivated by the long period in which face-to-face interactions have been banned due to the pandemic, this event aims to give young researchers and speakers the opportunity to exchange experiences.

At the opening ceremony, Professor of Physics Trân Thanh Vân, President of the “Rencontres du Vietnam” association, said he greatly appreciated the help given by officials in Dinh’s Binh province to ICISE to organize this important scientific event.

“The main purpose of ICISE is to promote scientific exchanges and share scientific and educational experiences between developed and new countries. Through such interactions in a relaxed atmosphere (like ICISE, in Quy Nhon), we sincerely hope that new ideas will emerge and contribute to the progress of science in the world “, he informs.

The Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, Bùi Thê Duy, confirmed that this conference is an opportunity for science-minded students to broaden their horizons and acquire more useful knowledge from teachers known around the world.

At the same time, it is hoped that the students participating in the conference today will learn, accumulate knowledge, study well and in the future strive to become ingenious scientists who serve the motherland and the country, as Professors Trân Thanh Vân and Dàm Thanh Søn ” , he points out.

Ignition of torch of knowledge

To emphasize the importance of such a global scientific event and to respond to the International Year of Fundamental Sciences for Sustainable Development, the Lighting Ceremony for torch of knowledge takes place during the opening ceremony of the said scientific symposium.

The event brings together teachers and about sixty students from five elite schools in the provinces of Binh Dinh, Quang Ngai and Phu Yên (Center), Gia Lai in Tây Nguyên (Central Highlands). It gives brilliant students the opportunity to meet leading scientists from around the world. The fire of this torch of knowledge lit constantly during the week during this important international scientific conference.

On Monday afternoon, Professor Dàm Thanh Son, from the University of Chicago (USA), Dirac Medal winner in 2018, will give a public lecture on “States of matter: from the point of view of modern physics” to the attention of about sixty elites. students from Binh Dinh, Quang Ngai, Phu Yên and Gia Lai.

On July 13, in the city of Quy Nhon, Professor Duncan Haldane is expected to give a lecture entitled “Topological quantum matter, entanglement and the second quantum revolution” (Topological quantum substance, entalement and the second quantum revolution). A similar event is scheduled for July 19 at Hanoi University of Science and Technology (USTH).
