Binh Dinh (VNA) – Rencontres du Vietnam (Meeting Vietnam) convened two international workshops on astrophysics in Quy Nhon city, the south-central province of Binh Dinh, on July 25.

The event has gathered more than 30 Vietnamese and foreign scientists from France, the United Kingdom, Czech, Germany, Italy, Israel, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Malaysia; as well as around 50 physics students from three gifted high schools in Binh Dinh and the neighbouring province of Phu Yen.
