Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues and Students,

Viet Nam is honored to be the host of the 19th Asian Physics Olympiad (APhO 2018) which will take place in Hanoi, from 5th – 13th May 2018. It is my great pleasure, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to warmly welcome the teams from 25 countries and territories to take part in this event which is organized by Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) with the support of the Vietnamese Government through the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET).

APhO 2018 will be a purely educational event that will encourage and motivate students to study STEM (Science – Technology – Engineering and Maths), crucial majors for the development of the Industry 4.0 in Asia. This will be also an excellent opportunity for young bright Asian students to experience a friendly and outstanding scientific competition in our peaceful campus of Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). Established in 1956, HUST is the first and leading multidisciplinary technical university in Viet Nam and attracts the best students in the country.

The Organizing Committee hopes that all participants will have the most rewarding and enjoyable time at HUST, hotels as well as enjoy rich culture and beautiful attractions of Viet Nam during excursions. We wish your team great success in this prominent competition.
