MIT – January 10-11-12 2020

 

The third International Meeting for Science in Palestine will be held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, from January 10th through 12th, 2020. The meeting will kick off with an event open to everybody on the evening of Friday January 10th, in the Wong auditorium of MIT. The Saturday and Sunday events will take place in the Mathematics department of MIT and are open to registered participants only (see below on how to register).

Goals:

The third international meeting aims to escalate and refine plans toward Scientists for Palestine’s primary objectives of advancing science in Palestine and integrating Palestinian sciences into the international scientific community by: enhancing collaboration between Scientists in Palestine and exile with key partners globally; highlighting Palestinian scientists and scientific development; and devising measurable goals toward these ends. The international meeting will provide space to access information about the challenges and successes of Palestinians practicing and researching science under occupation while also providing concrete opportunities for international scientists to get involved. A working group track will also run to help develop enhanced strategies to identify mechanisms for sustained international collaboration with and elevation of Palestinian scientists.

 

The meeting will include presentations by Palestinian scientists from both Historic Palestine (Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel) and Palestinians abroad, as well as other young and established scientists from around the world, and will be joined by prominent scientists including 2018 Chemistry Nobel Prize winner George Smith, MacArthur fellow Astrophysicist Nergis Mavalvala, and renowned Palestinian medic and innovator Dr. Tarek Loubani.

Registration:

The Saturday and Sunday sessions are only open for registered participants. The registration deadline is December 15, 2019. Registration is open here.

Participants are expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
