LUMS Science Symposium is a research oriented event centered on the foundation of SPADES (Society for the Promotion and Development of Engineering Sciences).The main objective of the event is to promote research culture among students and novice researchers by providing a platform for them to present their research. In addition to this, we hope to broaden the minds of young thinkers and allow them to explore new avenues of research by interacting with LUMS’s faculty and research experts through workshops, conferences and sessions with highly esteemed guest speakers.

LSS is the sole initiative of SPADES—Society for the Promotion and Development of Engineering and Sciences. With the progressive mission of promoting the countless realms of sciences and engineering, Spades is a society that stands to kindle the spark of scientific innovation in students from all over the country. It firmly believes in the idea that societal progression can only be achieved through innovative developments in these fields.
SPADES’s initiative of introducing the LUMS Science Symposium stems from the educational environment that the LUMS community fosters in its members. The university, through its amicable atmosphere, encourages scientific inquiry and research. LUMS cultivates a culture that harbors love and strength, allowing people to connect and share ideas in unprecedented ways.

SPADES took this initiative with the main aim of promoting the passion for scientific research and inquiry in Schools, Colleges, and Universities. It is our firm belief that by allowing students of schools and colleges to engage in university-level research, we can inculcate in them the spirit of seeking scientific solutions to modern-world issues; The idea is to equip an entire generation with the tools necessary to excel in the fields of science. It is a proven fact that experiential learning goes beyond the conventional means of acquiring knowledge. Such initiatives would, therefore, also ensure that our younger generation can contribute profusely to the socio-economic progress of this country.
Hello everyone, my name is Hamza Khalid, and I am one of the conveners for LSS this year. I am super excited to welcome all of you to the second (and obviously better) iteration of LSS. Through LSS, we aim to promote research culture in Pakistan so that we, too, can contribute to the development of science and technology. You will get to learn from our highly qualified faculty, Ph.D. students who are pursuing exciting research projects, and research associates at LUMS, who will help you articulate and develop your ideas. LSS provides a platform to bring the most novel of ideas to life, so if you want to show how humans can photosynthesize or prove that the Turing Test is inaccurate, please join us at one of Pakistan’s biggest science symposiums and prove your mettle!
Hello everyone! My name is Irtaza Tanveer and I’ll be serving as the Convener for the 3rd iteration of the LUMS Science Symposium. This is an event that is near and dear to my heart, since it is one of the only avenues through which I believe I can contribute towards the promotion of academic research not just in STEM but across various fields in a country like Pakistan, which is sadly deprived of a thriving research culture. I can think of no better way of doing my part in than providing budding researchers like you all the platform to interact with our team of esteemed faculty researchers and developing your ability to articulate and develop scientific ideas. Looking forward to seeing you all really soon!
SPADES family is eager to welcome students from all academic backgrounds to this auspicious event. LUMS Science Symposium provides an unparalleled opportunity, to undergraduates and other students, of showcasing their innovative research ideas and testing their own mettle. The event entails knowledge-based interaction between experts and students, allowing all to broaden the scope of their minds. The learning experience being offered at LSS stands to augment the participants’ personal skillset. It is high time our student bodies started playing their role in the development of this country’s intellectual capital.
