13th Annual Fulbright & Humphrey Alumni Conference

Agents of Change: Fulbright and Humphrey alumni

Call for Abstracts

We are pleased to announce that the Pakistan National Association of Fulbright Alumni (Pak-NAFA) and the Humphrey Alumni Association of Pakistan (HAAP) has decided to hold the 13th Annual Fulbright & Humphrey Alumni Conference in Islamabad during December 2-4, 2016. The theme of the conference is "Agents of Change: Fulbright and Humphrey alumni".

Keeping in view the interest and diverse academic backgrounds of our alumni, the sub-themes include: Education, Health, Environment, Governance, Law and Order, Agriculture, Energy, Water, Media Studies, Public Policy, Cultural Studies, Liberal Arts, Entrepreneurship, Science and Technology. Please share your thoughts and suggestions to include more sub-themes or have special sessions/activities other than the academic sessions during the conference.

Pakistani Fulbright/Humphrey alumni and U.S. Fulbright alumni (who availed their grants in Pakistan) are invited to present papers (simple talk - story telling!). Keeping in view broad theme of the conference, we encourage our alumni in all disciplines to consider participating. Alumni are particularly encouraged for a group presentation or a panel discussion relevant to any of the sub-themes.

As in years past, we welcome your suggestions to make the conference more interactive and interesting for all participants. We hope alumni use this opportunity to share their achievements and contributions in a wide range of professions in Pakistan.

If you are willing to make a presentation (not more than 15 minutes) at the conference, please register at the link below and send an abstract (summary) of your proposed presentation along with your profile (academic/ professional in narrative form) to alumni@usefpakistan.org. The maximum word count is: 300 words for the abstract and 200 words for the profile. Deadline for submission of the abstracts and profiles is September 12, 2016. For anyone submitting a proposal, please bear in mind that most of the audience has limited expertise in your field of study. Your proposal therefore should be comprehensible to educated laymen.

  • Once the Call for Abstracts deadline expires, a separate registration link will be shared with alumni (non-presenters) who wish to attend the conference.
  • Although the conference is taking place in Islamabad, the exact venue will be communicated shortly.
  • Alumni who have recently changed their contact information (cellphone/ email), should inform us at alumni@usefpakistan.org to ensure they do not miss out on future conference communications.
  • Do not hesitate to contact us for any questions or clarifications: alumni@usefpakistan.org.
