Delivering his opening remarks, Vice President Lam Quang Dong said: “IGRS is an academic forum where graduate students can enjoy better access to research issues, pilot new ideas and apply theories to practical research projects.”

He added: “The Symposium provides new researchers with opportunities to share and exchange knowledge as well as learn from others, thereby excelling their research directions, clearing research problems, contributing more appropriate, reliable, certain, and valuable research for societies.”

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vu Van Tich observed that IGRS was an important activity in terms of science research and training activity for the University itself and the country also.

At the Symposium, 2 plenary papers were presented by Prof. Raqib Chowdhury from Monash University (Problematizing criticality in the social sciences) and Prof. Rosemary Orlando from Southern New Hampshire University (Vietnamese English Language Teachers’ Changing Landscape: Challenges, Gaps and Opportunities).

Later, the particpants joined parallel sessions at 7 panels where over 56 papers were presented, which reflected a diversity of research topics with new perspectives and higher passions.
