In presentations for the general public in Sao Paulo (Sept. 28), Rio de Janeiro (Sept. 30), Brasilia (Oct. 5) and Belo Horizonte (Oct. 7), ICTP-SAIFR vice-director and IFT-UNESP director Rogério Rosenfeld debated philosophers Oswaldo Giocóia Jr. and Antonio Cícero on the subject of the universe and its cosmological origin. These presentations were sponsored by the Cultural Center of the Bank of Brasil as a monthly series of debates on art and science.

ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research

The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR) is a new South American regional center for theoretical physics created in a collaboration of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) with the São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the São Paulo Research Funding Agency (FAPESP). The ICTP-SAIFR is located at the campus of the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT-UNESP) in the city of São Paulo and activities include seminars, minicourses, schools and workshops. The center has funding for short-term and long-term visitors as well as for postdoctoral and permanent researchers.
