Symposium: The inspiration of Sir Paul Callaghan

A two-day symposium celebrating the life and work of the late Professor Sir Paul Callaghan is to be held in Wellington on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 February.

Organised by Victoria University and the MacDiarmid Institute, the Professor Sir Paul Callaghan Symposium will provide participants with an insight into Sir Paul’s life and career, and highlight the progress made and plans for the future of the work he started.

A number of Sir Paul’s friends and colleagues from New Zealand and abroad will speak at the Symposium, including Emeritus Professor Nick Stone, Sir Paul’s PhD supervisor.

Day one of the symposium will feature nine speakers and will focus on Sir Paul’s most significant work, his international collaborations and scientific advances.
