The East African Institute of Fundamental Research (EAIFR), an ICTP partner Institute in Africa, is officially opening on the 18th of October 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda.

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.
