With an aim to promote the culture of scientific inquiry in Pakistan, the 38th International Nathiagali Summer College (INSC) concluded on Saturday.
Chief guest Dr Badar Suleman, Member Science of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC), addressed the session. Suleman said the INSC is an institution which has helped develop new technologies and opened new horizons for physics research in the country.
The INSC, which brings together scientists from around the world, has been organised annually by PAEC since 1976, with around 1,700 foreign and 7,000 Pakistani scientists taking part in the college over the past 38 years.
For 2013, 18 science professors from various countries including Germany, Sweden and Switzerland delivered 50 lectures at the college and around 200 Pakistani students participated.
The regular sponsors of the college include several national and international organisations such as Italy’s Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics.
INSC Executive Secretary Dr Javaid Khurshid said the college’s primary aims are to promote interaction of the world scientific community and to discuss subjects of current interest.
