SanD celebrates ICTP@50

SanD and its members have benefited much from the training they received from the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste. SanD was formed in 2003 by Cristine Villagonzalo, who completed the ICTP Diploma Programme in Condensed Matter Physics in 1998. She developed SanD and mentored its students as Program Coordinator from 2003-2013. From 2013, Francis Paraan took over the role of SanD Program Coordinator. He is also an alumnus of the ICTP Diploma Programme in Condensed Matter Physics, graduating in 2008.
