As part of the festivities, we are organizing a two-day workshop (17th and 19th of October) which is aimed at reviving the African Physical Society with a focus on discussing about all the great science that is currently going on in the African continent, promoting networking amongst African scientists and setting out a roadmap for the future of science in general in Africa.

This activity will begin with a tribute to Prof. Francis Allotey who passed away last year.
