Filippo Giorgi, head of ICTP's Physics of Weather and Climate Group, was quoted extensively in a Science news article (26 October, p. 765) focusing on the UN-sponsored report, Climate Change 2001: The Scientific Basis (Cambridge University Press), for which Giorgi served as one of the co-ordinating authors. In the same issue, Science examined efforts by scientists from Islamic nations to strengthen ties with the West in the aftermath of the 11 September terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. The feature article begins with observations and comments by Farouk El-Baz, the Egyptian-born director of Boston University's Center for Remote Sensing, who served as a member of ICTP's Scientific Council from 1986 to 1993. A lengthy article on Islamic science published in The New York Times on 30 October cites both El-Baz and the late Abdus Salam, the founding and long-time director of ICTP. Mohamed Hassan, executive director of the Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), based in Trieste, was quoted in a special feature article on technology and development published in the 10 November issue of The Economist.
