These posters are from Mohamed Mustafa's blog. Click for full size. The first one is apparently for the May 19 lecture. I can't find an official AUC announcement for the second. Neither poster gives time and place information, so they are not too useful to potential attendees. What a peculiar oversight.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about these is that El Naschie has been almost truthful in giving his affiliations. He does indeed have a faculty position in the Alexandria University physics department. It is also true that he is a Distinguished Fellow of the Frankfurt Association for the Advancement of Fundamental Research in Physics. Notice however that he could not help himself adding "Faculty of Physics, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University of Frankfurt, Germany" which is not true at all. See Fortasse pecunia olet interdum for the full story. All El Naschie did was contribute some money to their physics department; he's trying to make it sound like he's faculty.
The May 19 announcement called El Naschie a "Fellow at the Institute of Physics in England" and this also is true, but the Institute of Physics is not an academic organization. It is a publishing one. Oh well, the journey to honesty for El Naschie begins with hesitant baby steps. He should be encouraged, not criticized. At least he's no longer claiming to be from the University of Cambridge Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics.
