BCVSPIN-2023 in Nepal

BCVSPIN (an acronym denoting Bangladesh, China, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India and Nepal) program was initiated in 1989 by Professors Abdus Salam, Jogesh Pati, Yu Lu, and Qaisar Shafi with the goal of providing a platform for scientists in the South/Southeast Asia region to learn about exciting developments in particle/astroparticle physics and cosmology from leading experts. Previous editions, traditionally funded by ICTP, took place in Nepal (1989, 1990, 1994-97), India (1992), China (2007, 2009, 2013), Vietnam (2011), and Mexico (2014). The most recent edition was organized as a virtual program in 2021 and was attended by more than 300 participants.

The 2023 edition was supported by several US ATLAS experiments institutes, ICTP in Trieste and IPPOG.
