Nearly 80 domestic and foreign physicists are taking part in an international conference in Quy Nhon city of central Binh Dinh province to share the latest achievements and enhance cooperation in the field.

The three-day event focuses on flavour physics - a new area for scientists to study the nature of Quarks – an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter.

This particle has drawn attention from the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), said Chairman of the Meet Vietnam Organisation Tran Thanh Van at the July 28 opening ceremony.

Research on flavour physics can be applied in nuclear power and medicine, heard the conference.-VNA
