Azwinndini Muronga (Nelson Mandela University, South Africa)


By September 30, 2019, South Africa was among four African countries that have submitted proposals to the International Organizing Committee(IOC) of the African School of Fundamental Physics and Applications (ASP) to host ASP2022. After reviewing all the proposals, the IOC in December of 2019 unanimously selected the bid from South Africa with the main aim of boosting capacity in smaller universities and in rural regions. The venue for ASP2022 in South Africa will be the Nelson Mandela University in Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth) in the Eastern Cape Province.

This presentation will highlight the journey since the announcement, the host, supporting activities, and the current status regarding ASP2022 logistics & preparations.
