Applications are open until January 31 for Proposals of 2023 Activities organized by ICTP-SAIFR on the IFT-UNESP campus in São Paulo. These 2023 activities will include two-week schools for PhD students as well as minicourses and programs/workshops, and can also be organized partially or completely by videoconference.

To simplify the receiving of private donations which help fund ICTP-SAIFR activities, a new private non-profit association "Friends of SAIFR'' was created which is administered by the ICTP-SAIFR director and vice-director with the help of Advisory Board members Carlos Brito Cruz, Rodrigo Fiães, Peter Goddard, Fernando Quevedo, Alexandre Reily Rocha and Pedro Wongtschowski

Applications are open until February 1 for FAPESP Information Technology Fellowships at levels TT-2 and TT-5 to provide multimedia support for ICTP-SAIFR activities and to update the ICTP-SAIFR webpage and databases.

The 2021 edition of SILAFAE (Latin American Symposium on High Energy Physics) was organized online by ICTP-SAIFR from Nov. 8-12 and included 32 seminars by distinguished Latin American researchers and a discussion of the newly formed Latin American Association for HECAP.

ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research

The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR) is a South American regional center in the city of São Paulo created in a collaboration of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the Instituto de Fisica Teorica (IFT) of São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the Sao Paulo Research Funding Agency (FAPESP). Its activities include seminars, minicourses, schools and workshops for graduate students and researchers in all areas related to theoretical physics, as well as outreach activities for the general public and for high-school students and teachers. The center has funding for short-term and long-term visitors as well as for postdoctoral and permanent researchers.
