Twenty years ago, The International Commission for Optics (ICO) initiated a Traveling Lecturer Program to promote lectures on modern optics by scientists of international reputation with superb lecturing skills. Although the program is aimed at developing nations, it is not restricted to them. In September 2007, I had the honor and the opportunity to travel to Shanghai as an ICO traveling lecturer.
