International conference “Nevanlinna theory and complex geometry in honor of Le Van Thiem's centenary”

Prof. Le Van Thiem (March 29, 1918 - June 3, 1991) was one of the most outstanding scientists of Vietnam in the 20th century. Together with Prof. Hoang Tuy and other mathematicians, he was the founder of the Vietnam Mathematical Society. He was the first rector of the Hanoi National University of Education and the Hanoi University of Science under the Vietnam National University, and the first Head of the Institute of Mathematics. On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Prof. Le Van Thiem, from February 26, 2018 to March 2, 2018, the Institute of Mathematics, the Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics, the Hanoi National University of Education, the Hanoi University of Science, and Thang Long University held the international conference "Nevanlinna theory and Complex Geometry in Honor of Le Van Thiem's Centenary" with the participation of mathematicians studying in complex analytics, complex geometry, Nevanlinna Theory, numerical theory and other topics in the recent development of mathematics inVietnam.

Workshop introduces Vietnam DataCube Satellite Data Sharing System

On March 6, 2018 in Hanoi, the Vietnam National Space Center (VNSC) under the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) organized a workshop introducing Vietnam DataCube Satellite Data System. This was an important occasion to debut the free and open data system (Vietnam DataCube system) for Vietnamese application agencies after a period of development at VNSC under the assistance of the international community.

Two VAST scientific journals listed in 2017 ASEAN Citation Index

In December, 2017, the scientific database of the ASEAN Citation Index (ACI) accepted three Vietnamese scientific journals as meeting the ACI standard, including two journals published by the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), including Vietnam Journal of Science and Technology, and Vietnam Journal of Earth Sciences.

Research and anti-cancer effects of new indole alkaloid derivatives

Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled development and the spread of abnormal cells. An estimated 14 million new cases of cancer are reported each year worldwide. In 2017, about 600,920 American people die from cancer, with nearly 1,650 deaths each day. Some typical natural compounds, such as alkaloid indole, show significant anti-cancer activity. Periwinkle alkaloid, a family of indole dimer compounds isolated from the periwinkle of Catharanthus roseus, the Apocynaceae family, represents one of the most important anti-cancer layers.
