      Women in Physics—Producing thinkers from daughter in Physics Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      In the pool of women in physics community, there exist lost talent as a result of lack of guidance and knowledge. This is due to the status of women in many developing world communities. The GBV term also adds to all other topics that affects women in physics from achieving great height at early career times. Discussing with many retired women from academia, there is a cry for mentoring and support. Our desire as experienced women in physics are to have young women in physics achieving professorship at early career ladder and eventually win prizes of excellence, even towards Nobel awards. This lecture is about supporting our daughters, girls, young and older women in Physics to realize their potential.

      A Deeper Understanding of Our Universe from Far Underground Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Prof. Art McDonald, Gray Chair, Emeritus, Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada

      By going deep underground and creating ultra-clean conditions it is possible to produce the lowest radioactivity laboratory in the world. There we can address very fundamental questions about our Universe: How does the Sun burn? What are the abundant dark matter particles in the spaces between the stars? What are the properties of neutrinos, elusive particles that are one of the fundamental building blocks of nature? How do these particles influence how our Universe evolves? Experiments addressing these questions are taking place at underground labs internationally and will be described.

      Enabling capacity development in physics in Africa through science, technology, and innovation policy and governance Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Science, and physics in particular has increasingly become a global enterprise. This phenomena of the movement of scientists beyond sovereignty is accelerating. This is partly because science, by its nature, resists to be confined in boundaries. Even within the confined boundaries science needs enabling environment for creativity. No one nation can afford to do big science alone.

      For Africa’s physics community to actively participate in the international science landscape and to contribute positively to the continent’s sustainable development, governments should make enabling and supportive STI policies.

      In this public lecture we will discuss STI policy in relation to capacity building in physics in Africa.

        Abstract: Plasma refers to an electrically conducting medium in which there are roughly equal numbers of positively and negatively charged particles, produced when the atoms in a gas become ionized. In this presentation, an introduction to theoretical study of plasma that treats the plasma as a fluid governed by a combination of Maxwell's equations and the Navier–Stokes equations knows as magnetohydrodynamics. Relevant applications of fluid and plasma in engineering, industrial and technology will be discussed.

      Enabling technology transfer from National labs - lessons learnt Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      To maximize the technology transfer potential, it is important to create an ecosystem for the scientists/engineers/inventors to adapt the technologies developed for basic science to successful commercial ventures. In the Snowmass process we reviewed technology transfer programs at high energy physics (HEP) laboratories across the world. I will present the opportunities that we identified and the recommendations for increasing partnerships and commercialization at HEP-centric laboratories.

      Inkanyezi Building LH17

      Nuclear Reaction, Structure and Astrophysics
      Nuclear Physics has evolved in recent years studying nuclei from Fundamental Interactions to Structure and Stars, with wide areas of research in fundamental nuclear structure dealing with behaviours of nucleons inside the nuclei across the periodic table; nuclear reactions on different mechanisms of interactions, as well as nuclear astrophysics linking phenomenon that exists inside our galaxies and sun with the practical analogy through experimental investigations in the state-of-the-art nuclear facilities and theoretically using Super-computers to predict many outstanding effects in the life beyond. Since the properties of nuclei, their existence, excitations and decays are all encoded in the nuclear chart, it represents the boundary condition for the complete evolution of properties of nuclear matter in neutron stars, supernovae, and mergers and from the Big Bang to today. The physics of nuclear forces, both strong and electroweak, therefore connects nuclear structure physics with nuclear astrophysics. Experimentalists and theorists work closely together on a variety of scientific topics for increased understanding with novel findings towards sustainable development goals. Summary of the basic nuclear physics knowledge including available theoretical codes will be discussed.

      ASFAP Young Physicists Forum Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      The Young Physicists Forum (YPF) was formulated in 2021 under the African Strategy for Fundamental and Applied Physics (ASFAP) alongside other Engagement and Physics Working Groups. The objectives of the Forum include, among others, to solicit for a wider community input of ideas of the challenges and opportunities early-career physicists on the African continent face and solutions thereof. The Forum’s main mandate, therefore, is to promote good-quality education and high scientific research output on the African Continent. The Continent currently produces less than 1% of the total global scientific research output. This is quite low considering the large continental size. In this lecture, the challenges and opportunities young physicists face and possible solutions are outlined so as to build capacity for education and high scientific research output in Africa.

      Mental well-being Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Inkanyezi Building Auditorium

      Throughout time humans have faced different kinds of challenges. Most recently the main challenge involves ‘the mind’. Behaviorists have talked about the different stimuli that influence our response or explain our behaviors collectively with context. Recently data shows that context, the environment, social factors, and other psychological variables play a big role towards our mental health. It is worth it to stop and take stock of our collective thinking patterns in the context of community, society, nations and even as an individual. Mental well-being is one of the most under rated phenomenon. This talk will briefly look into the history of cognitive based therapies and how far we have come, how we can use what we have learnt to not only help ourselves but impact the next generation. Hopefully, we can gain some perspective, learn to direct mental activities, and help move us forward more informed about the processes of change within, and most importantly start a journey towards psychological flexibility.

      @Students: Nuclear science and technologies at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) - ensuring future energy and water security (IAEA) Inkanyezi Building LH18

      Inkanyezi Building LH18

      The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), located in Vienna Austria, is an independent intergovernmental, science and technology-based organization, in the United Nations (UN) family, that serves as the global focal point for nuclear cooperation. Its mandate strapline is “atoms for peace and development.” The Agency’s development activity is focused on helping to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs), such as clean water and sanitation for everyone, affordable and clean energy, and climate action, through applications of nuclear technologies. Atoms for peace not only reflects the IAEA’s nuclear safeguard mandate, but also its decided contributions to peace by bringing people from around the world together to address global challenges.
      The IAEA’s efforts to achieve SDGs is delivered through its Science & Technology pillar, defined by two of its technical departments, the Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications (NA) and the Department of Nuclear Energy (NE) plus its 12 laboratories in Vienna, Seibersdorf and Monaco. The Division of Physical and Chemical Sciences (NAPC) bridges both NA and NE departments and supports the IAEA’s 174 Member States in building capacities and optimising benefits for safe and economical applications of existing nuclear technologies as well as in developing new, innovative nuclear technologies for the future. The four sections comprising NAPC are responsible for the IAEA’s Water Resource, Radioisotope Products and Radiation Technologies and Nuclear Sciences programmes.
      The talk will briefly outline NAPC activities directed towards securing future clean energy and water resource, of particular importance to the African Continent. Specifically, the IAEA role in development of fusion energy, in chemical recycling of plastic waste to generate fuel and in managing water resource for energy, agriculture, industrial applications and human consumption will be highlighted. In addition, how activities collaboratively supporting Member States to achieve their development goals and joining forces to tackle global challenges contribute to atoms for peace will be discussed.
