Every four years the Center sponsors an international conference for current and former Center fellows, both visiting and resident.
The objectives of these conferences are to renew old professional ties and friendships and to create new ones, as well as to promote academic cooperation and collaborative research among current and former Center fellows. Because most participants come from European countries, these conferences are held in Europe. The first international meeting of the Pittsburgh Fellowship was held in 1988 in Oxford, England. The second conference, held in 1992 in Athens, Greece, was co-sponsored by the National Technical University of Athens and by the University of Athens. The 1996 international meeting of the Pittsburgh Fellowship took place in Italy. The June 2000 meeting was held in Bariloche, Argentina.
