An Introduction

International Nathiagali Summer Colleges (INSC) on Physics and Contemporary Needs have been organized every year since 1976. The idea of holding these Colleges came from the distinguished Nobel Laureate, Professor Abdus Salam who emphasized the vital need of communication, as well as for transferring and sharing scientific knowledge among the scientific community. The primary aim of the College is to break the isolation of the scientists of the developing countries by enabling them to interact with an international faculty and colleagues actively engaged in teaching and research activities.

Over the years, about 1,000 eminent scientists and speakers including 08 Nobel Laureates from leading universities, research centers and industries of advanced countries have lectured as faculty at INSC and shared their knowledge with more than 1,000 foreign scientists from over 75 developing countries and about 11,350 scientists from Pakistani R&D institutes and universities.

Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission has been regularly organizing this scientific activity since 1976. The scientific activities of INSC aim at the broad coverage of topics at the frontiers of knowledge in Physics and allied sciences. Every year four to six subjects of current interest and their applications for technological development, with special reference to needs of the developing world, are highlighted.
