46th Intl. Nathiagali Summer College (Webinars)

5 - 10 July, 2021

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. INSC helps Scientist to share knowledge and to learn from each other’s experiences, an opportunity, unique in the third world has been provided by this college to younger and active scientists for establishing and renewing contracts with world renowned scientists. Over the years, about 965 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 1150 foreign scientists from over 75 developing countries and about 10600 scientists from Pakistani R&D institutes and universities. The scientific activities of INSC aim at the broad coverage of topics at the frontiers of knowledge in Physics and allied sciences. Every year three to five subjects of current interest and their applications with special reference to needs of the developing countries are highlighted. This year the 46th college is covering following topics:
