The second International Meeting for Science in Palestine will start soon at Columbia University, NY, USA.

The meeting starts this Friday at 5:30PM with a public event on Doing science under military occupation: the case of Palestine.

The rest of the weekend is for registered participant only, but we will try to live-stream the meeting – more information will be posted here and on our facebook page.

You see the full program here.

The public event on Friday event will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will take place at the Northwest Corner Building, 501, Broadway and 120th Street, Columbia University. A light refreshment will be provided. This event is open to everyone, so if you have not done it yet invite as many of your friends as you can.

For those of you who have also registered for the weekend activities, they will start sharp at 9 a.m. on Saturday November 10th in the Mathematics Hall, Room 203, Columbia University. Please come on time to check-in for the conference. Lunch will be provided and at 6:30 p.m., after an intense day of brainstorming sessions and productive discussions, we will host a social dinner at the “social room” in the Union Theological Seminary to keep bonding but in a more relaxed set up. Sunday the activities will start sharp at 9 a.m. with the most political of our sessions: “is science apolitical? The need for concerned scientists”. Activities on Sunday will be held again at the Northwest Corner Building, 501, Broadway and 120th Street with lunch provided. The conference will close at 5 p.m.

We can’t wait to see many of you tomorrow evening and an enormous thank you to all our amazing co-sponsors: Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, Center for Palestine Studies at Columbia University, Columbia Students for Justice in Palestine, Science for the People and Within our Lifetime • United for Palestine.
