International Workshop on Quantum Many-Body Problems in Particle, Nuclear, and Atomic Physics

March 8 – 11, 2017, Duy Tan University, Danang city, Vietnam

General Information

The International Workshop on Quantum Many-Body Problems in Particle, Nuclear, and Atomic Physics will take place from Mar. 8 through Mar. 11, 2017 at Duy Tan University (DTU), Danang city, Vietnam. This workshop, which is co-organized by the Quantum Hadron Physics Laboratory in RIKEN (Saitama) and Duy Tan University (Danang), aims to discuss various topics in quantum many-body systems in particle, nuclear, and atomic physics. In particular, the workshop will cover topics on

  • 1

    Lattice QCD

  • 2

    Physics of cold atoms

  • 3

    Nuclear physics

  • 4


The workshop expects to welcome 50-70 participants who are interested in the above topics.

A Parallel Mini-Workshop on Nuclear Engineering and Reactor Physics will also be held on March 8-9, 2017 at the same place.
