This year's course welcomes 18 students and researchers from many top national universities in the US , the Republic of Korea and Canada .

Chau, now a professor at the University of Chicago , received the Fields Medal in 2010, making him the first and the only Vietnamese to get the world's most prestigious maths award.-VNA
