Carlo Rubbia To Open Workshop

ICTP is hosting a three-day Advanced Research Workshop entitled Sharing Knowledge Across the Mediterranean. The workshop, which will begin on Monday 6 November at 9.00 in the Main Lecture Hall, is the third in a series organized by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Previously events were held in Geneva (2004) and Casablanca (2005). This year’s workshop, which is dedicated to the memory of ICTP’s founding director Abdus Salam on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of his death, will feature an opening talk by Carlo Rubbia (Nobel Laureate in Physics 1984). Abdulsalam El-Qallali, the Libyan Ambassador to the United National Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and a former ICTP Associate, will also speak at the opening session. Other presenters include Adnan Shihab El-Din, former secretary general of OPEC, who will examine the prospects for fossil fuel supplies, and Herwig Schopper, former director of CERN, the European particle physics laboratory, who will describe the current state of SESAME project, which has brought the first-ever synchrotron light facility to the Middle East.
