The Edward Bouchet Abdus Salam Institute International Conferences

In order to achieve its objectives, EBASI periodically organizes international scientific and technical conferences hosted by universities in African countries. These conferences promote collaborations between American and African physical scientists and tremendously enhance the quality of the African universities that host them. The collaborations fostered by these conferences have resulted in the training of a number of African graduate students. These EBASI graduates have been among the first to obtain doctoral degrees from the universities in their respective countries. At any given time, there are typically several African graduate students in the pipeline. The late Nobel laureate Professor Abdus Salam, one of our founders, was emphatic that EBASI not contribute to the "brain drain" of African scientific talent. In this regard, we are proud to report that most EBASI graduates are currently working professionals in their respective countries.
