Scientific research on the conservation and effective use of two species of Berberis wallichiana DC and Mahonia bealei (Fortune) Pynaert which belong to the Berberidaceae Juss family in Vietnam

The Berberidaceae family in Vietnam has four branches and nine species, distributed mainly in highlands areas in the northern mountainous provinces and Lam Dong province. According to a number of published documents, 9 species in this family are used as medicine, treating diseases relating to digestion, eye pain, high blood pressure, lumbar pain, toothache and liver diseases.

Study on breeding production, preservation and development of Austriella corrugata in Quang Ninh province

Austriella corrugata is a relatively large bivalve mollusc species, living in the low tide mangrove forest with mostly muddy and sandy bottom. Austriella corrugata is delicious and rich in nutrients; brings very high economic value; is popular and is a specialty of coastal areas of Quang Ninh. At present, the supply of Austriella corrugata at the market is from natural exploitation. As there is increasingly high demand for Austriella corrugate, natural Austriella corrugata is exploited more and more, resulting in increasingly exhausted and severely declining resources. Therefore, it is necessary to study and master the biological and reproductive characteristics and living conditions of the species, in order to provide the scientific basis for the protection and development of resources and the production of the breeding, gradually changing from natural exploitation into production, raising incomes for coastal fishermen, and at the same time diversifying valuable livestock breeds and preserving biodiversity.

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.
