CeNS-INST Joint Symposium -2017

A Joint Symposium involving CeNS, Bengaluru and INST, Mohali, organized by CeNS, was held during 16-17 November 2017 at Hospet, Karnataka.

On the first day, Prof. G U Kulkarni, Director, CeNS and Prof. A.K. Ganguli, Director, INST, welcomed Bharat Ratna Professor C N R Rao, Chairman, Governing Council, CeNS and Chairman, Board of Governers, INST and researchers from CeNS and INST. Prof. Rao, in his opening remarks, mentioned about the importance of doing quality scientific research and not just the quantity, so that world sits up and takes notice of us through science. He also felt that the joint symposium between the two nano institutes should help exchange ideas and build collaborations to work in this direction.

During the two days, seventeen invited talks, eight short oral presentations, and twenty-four poster presentations saw an active participation both from the students and the faculty. The presentations covered a wide range of topics in soft matter, nano- and bio-sciences with an emphasis on nanoscience-related research and technology. Each scientific session was followed by a lively discussion which culminated in newer ideas. The participants were also treated to a Hindustani musical performance by the local artiste, Ms. Savitha Amaresh, and her group.
