    In November 2000 a conference "God, Life and Cosmos" was held in
    Islamabad, Pakistan. This was a conference where christian and muslim
    scientists got together to interact.
    Details about the conference can be seen at
    The papers from this conference will be published by Ashgate Publishers
    later this fall. See
    Thus it seems that there are already conversations going on between christian
    and muslim scientists.
    (Among the muslim contributors there were both scientists working in muslim
    countries and scientists
    working in western countries.)

    One of the muslim participants at the conference - Muzaffar Iqbal - will
    also publish a book this fall
    called "Islam and science" (Ashgate Publishing)
