The National Centre for Physics (NCP), Islamabad, Pakistan and International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy are jointly organizing the International Scientific School (ISS) in Islamabad, Pakistan from March 12 - 16, 2018. The ISS-2018 will be directed by H. R. Hoorani (NCP) and Joseph Niemela (ICTP.
International Scientific Spring (ISS), initiated in 2009, has become a major annual scientific activity of NCP. Since 2012, ICTP, Italy has become a partner of NCP for organizing this scientific event in Islamabad, Pakistan. It was re-named as a school in 2015 to reflect its emphasis on developing the potential of young participants. The idea of holding the ISS at NCP is to provide a platform for local and foreign participants to exchange scientific knowledge and to generate enthusiasm for science and innovation. Participants taking part in the deliberations of ISS include around 300 young Pakistani M.Phil./Ph.D. students, researchers, university faculty and many distinguished foreign invited speakers.
Each year, the scientific topics of ISS are chosen with a focus on the present and future research interests of NCP, universities and national R&D institutions. The ISS consists of plenary, parallel and poster sessions as well as tutorials and structured discussions relevant to various technical activities in the chosen topics. The plenary lectures contain mostly overviews of advances in the topical areas, meant to be accessible to a general academic audience, while the lectures/talks in parallel sessions cover recent research in each specific topic.
