ISLAMABAD: The Minister for Science and Technology, and Defense Production, H.E. Mr. Rana Tanveer Hussain, inaugurated the three-day International Symposium on Light and Life, being held at COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT), Islamabad from 14-16 October 2015.

A part of UN’s year-long celebration of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, the event will highlight the latest research at various universities across the country, including COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT). Some of these activities include R&D programmes in Lasers and Photonics, along with latest developments taking place in the field across the globe.

The Symposium kicked off with the remarks by the Rector CIIT, Dr. S.M. Junaid Zaidi, who welcomed the speakers and participants, and wished them a good learning experience.

The symposium’s overview was given by Prof. Dr. Aslam Khan, Chairman of the event’s Organizing Committee, informing that the event is intended to provide a platform for discussing advancements in light, its sources, properties and interactions, and its role in sustaining and enhancing the quality of life and would comprise 16 parallel technical sessions, 10 plenary talks, 13 invited talks, 25 contributed talks and 25 poster presentations.

The speakers, apart from Pakistan, hail from Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Germany, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Sudan, Turkey, UK, and USA and over 175 participants, including researchers, faculty members, engineers, graduate and senior undergraduate students have registered for the event.

“The key is in developing well-coordinated programmes in collaborations with national and possibly regional, as well as international groups and centres of excellence,” stated the Minister. He noted that there are wide-spread uses and applications of light and light-based technologies in the fields of defense, energy, communication, environmental monitoring, remote sensing, medicine, industrial research and information technology (IT).

Dr. Imtinan Elahi Qureshi, Executive Director COMSATS, highlighted a nexus between economic growth, technological advances, and political and social patronage, for the benefits of S&T to reach the society. Underscoring the importance of the theme of the event, Dr. Qureshi noted its applications, inter alia, in defense. He further added that the technologies that seemed impossible a few years back are turning into reality due to advances in light-based technologies.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Dr. Aslam Baig (UNESCO’s designated Focal Point for activities urged the Minister to pursue with the relevant quarters of the Government the matter of allocating 4% of the national GDP for education, and enhanced investments in Science and Technology.

The organizers of the event include Abdus Salam-International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Italy; CIIT; and the Commission on Science and Technology for Sustainable Development in the South (COMSATS). The local sponsors of the events were the Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of Pakistan; the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan; Pakistan Academy of Sciences; and National Testing Services.

The subsequent sessions of the event, spread over the next two days, would touch upon a number of themes including: Light Detection & Harvesting; Light Emitting Devices; Light-Matter Interactions; Light-Based Technologies; Photochemistry & Photobiology; Optoelectronics & Photonics; Imaging Science; and Quantum Informatics.
