Symposium on science and engineering next month
Sep 26, 2016-The third biannual international conference on material science and engineering – Kathmandu Symposia on Advanced Materials (KaSAM) – is being held this year in Pokhara from October 17 to 20. Nepal Polymer Institute (NPI), a Kathmandu-based professional organization of polymer scientists is organizing the conference. NPI also represents the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) in Nepal.
According to Prof. Dr. Rameshwar Adhikari of Tribhuvan University’s Central Department of Chemistry, the biannual event initiated from 2012 aims at promoting scientific activities outside the Capital. At the same time, the event looks forward to providing a global platform to students, young researchers, faculties, and policy makers in various avenues of chemistry, material sciences, chemical technologies, nanotechnology and related biomedical sciences.
The conference will be attended by eminent scientists and professors of 15 countries, including Prof. Mushahid Husain (Vice Chancellor of M J. P. Rohilkhand University, Bareily, India), Prof. Goerg H. Michler(Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenbberg, Germany), Prof. Bernhard Blümich(Aachen University, Germany), Prof. Michael Hess (University of Siegen, Germany), Prof. HolgerSchönherr(University of Siegen, Germany), Prof. Jean Marc Saiter(University of Rouen, France), Prof. Valerio Causin(Padova University, Italy), Prof. Tomasz Sterzinsky(Poznan University of Technology, Poland), among others.
According to a statement issued by the organizers, KaSAM-2016 will be accompanied by Second Kathmandu Autumn School on Chemistry and Chemical Technologies (KASChem-2016) to provide an overview of recent progresses in the field of Nanomaterials.
