    Delegates from Britain, the United States, Canada, Germany, Sweden and more than 20 Middle East and Asian countries are attending the seminar. Sponsored by the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and the U.S. National Science Foundation, the meeting's main goal is to unify and update theory on solid state physics. The Pakistan Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology, normally out of bounds to all foreign visitors, is located in the village of Nilore, about 14 miles from the federal capital of Islamabad.

    The delegates were officially welcomed by Pakistan's science minister, Rafi Raza, who revealed his country's objective of producing one third of its total power-generating capacity from nuclear sources by the year 2000. Also welcoming the delegates was the seminar's chairman, Munir Ahmad Khan, seen seated beside Raza. The conference, which began December 9th, concludes December 20th.
