The Academic Affairs Office (AAO) assists the Academic Secretary in the performance of his duties. The Office is principally engaged: in the administration and follow-up of academic staff appointments and promotions (of Scientific Personnel as well as Staff Scientists); in the administration of academic committees (of the Council of Professors and of the Scientific Council); as well as the running of academic programs (e.g., for Visiting Scientists, Senior Interns and Academic Consultants) and other academic events such as the prestigious annual Weizmann Memorial Lectures. The Office also administers the annual Scientific Academic Advisory Committee (SAAC) reviews on behalf of the International Board as well as the Apointments and Promotions Committee of the Executive Board.
The Office publishes Current Research Activities in order to provide information about the current research interests of Institute Scientific Personnel in a succinct manner. The document provides the means for further links to additional information (e.g. to the researchers' personal home pages).
