STAFF REPORT IBD: The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, has organised its regional scientific activity namely the “First ICTP-NCP International College on Plasma Physics” from November 11-15 at the National Centre for Physics (NCP), Islamabad, to promote research in the field of plasma physics in Pakistan and in this part of the world.


This is the first scientific activity of its kind organised in Pakistan by ICTP in collaboration with NCP.


Eminent scientists and researchers from countries including the USA, Japan, China, Belgium, Italy, India, Bangladesh, Iran, Russia, Thailand, Uganda, Nigeria, Nepal, Indonesia, Egypt and Jordan also participated in this activity.


“The field of plasma physics is very important to achieve a long-time solution of increasing energy demand of the world. The scientists and engineers are engaged in finding out ways and means to control the thermonuclear fusion reactions for producing electricity,” said Dr. Hamid Saleem, Director General NCP.


He also said that if their efforts succeed then probably after 2050 the mankind will be using electricity produced by the same physical process which is taking place on the shining stars for billions of years; namely the nuclear fusion.


He hoped that the collaboration between NCP and ICTP will be strengthened further and with the support of ICTP, the NCP will be able to play a role for promoting science and technology in the region as well.
