Dear comrades and friends,


I write to happily announce that registration for the 3rd International convening of Scientists for Palestine is now open. We are proud to inform that this third meeting will be hosted the by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology [M.I.T] in Boston from January 10 to January 12, 2020 and will see the participation of high-profiles figures of the caliber of George Smith, 2018 Chemistry Nobel Prize Winner, Nergis Mavalvala, MIT astrophysicists and MacArthur fellow and Mawan Awartani, Minister of Education of Palestine - more info about the meeting can be found in the attached document.

Over the past year, we have expanded and further developed the work and goals of S4P in collaboration with the broader scientific communities and in collaboration with Palestinian civil society. We are most excited to share these developments with you, as your input and participation is critical to the ambitious phase we are entering in the expansion of this important movement.

Even if you cannot participate in person, it would be terrific if you could help support and/or promote this important event. If you are interested, feel free to reach out to me for more information. Please kindly note that the weekend working groups and plenary sessions are strictly for registered participants and that registration will close December 15th, 2019, or whenever we reach capacity. Please also note that registration requires two steps:

1. Registering for the conference by paying the fee here. (basic registration is $10, sponsor options also available); and

2. Completing the registration form here.

* Failing to do either of the above will result in an incomplete and failed registration.

In solidarity,



Mara Freilich (she/her)
