The Bahamas Advanced Study Institute and Conferences (BASIC) holds a one-week conference every year on the island of Long Island, which is free of charge. Participants attend a series of in-depth talks on elementary particle theory, gravity, and cosmology, led by some of the most eminent physicists from around the world.

Accommodations will be provided by the Stella Maris Resort, an all-inclusive resort. The Resort is offering a 20% discount for all participants. For more information about hotel and travel arrangements, please contact Mrs. Jill Smith at (242) 338-2050, 338-2051 or email:

The founder of BASIC is Professor Eduardo Guendelman and Thomas Curtright. A future goal of BASIC is to create a stimulating center in a tropical environment where scientists and their students can gather, think in depth, and exchange ideas about important scientific problems, especially in physics and related fields.
