IMASE Fourth Research Colloquium Summer 2007 (London)

 Saturday, 23rd June 2007 10am - 4pm 

Are you a Muslim researcher? Thinking about pursuing research?

Following the success of our previous colloquia the International Muslim Association of Scientists and Engineers invites you once again to join us for our Summer 2007 Colloquium this June.

The objective of the research colloquium is to reap the collective benefits of bringing together researchers within a Muslim environment. Muslim Society continues to undervalue study at the higher levels and the communication of research within its fold. 

Whether you are an established academic, a PhD student or someone thinking of pursuing research, this is a chance for you to present your findings to other researchers within an Islamic environment. Your subject area could be in ANY discipline; Maths, Biology, History, Art, Tafsir or even Archaeology; we would like to hear from you.

If you would like to take part, have any questions about IMASE or how to pitch your presentation please e-mail us on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
