International Conference on Nano and Functional Materials (NFM-2017)
16–18 November 2017, Organized by Department of Chemistry , BITS Pilani-Pilani Campus

Objective of the conference is to expose the students & researchers to the recent advances in the fields of nanomaterials and functional materials in our country and across the globe. The aim is to elucidate the seamless mixing of science and engineering aspects in development of the very important interdisciplinary domain of material science. This will stage a panel of eminent researchers/ professors to seed ideas/ concepts for trans-disciplined collaborations, towards growing national and global technology demands in materials science and engineering. You are invited to present your research findings in addition to be inspired by the pioneers during the plenary sessions.

An interdisciplinary group of faculty members from different departments of the Pilani campus are actively doing research in the highly evolving area of materials and their applications. The team includes Prof. J. Panwar (Biosciences), Prof. I. R. Laskar, Dr. S. Pande, Dr. R. Sakhuja, Dr. B. R. Sarkar, Dr. M. Basu (All in Chemistry), Dr. R. K. Gupta, Dr. S. Gangopadhyay (both in Physics), Dr. D. Chitkara, Dr. A. Mittal (both in Pharmacy), Dr. S. Belgamwar (Mechanical Engg.), Dr. B. Roy, Dr. S. Appari (Chemical Engg.), Prof. N. Gupta, Dr. A. Hazra (both in Electrical Engg.), Dr. A. Bahruddin (Civil Engg.).The group had organized NFM-2014 in November 2014 as a national conference to initiate communication and cross-disciplinary interactions which had considerably contributed to its growth and visibility of the University among the research peer-group. The members have recently been awarded several research projects in respective areas from various national funding agencies.

Department of Chemistry, Pilani Campus

One of oldest & ever-evolving department having a vision to excel in teaching & research, recently reinforced with enthusiastic young faculty members. Active research in the frontier areas of both fundamental and applied chemistry has been appreciated nationally & globally for several decades. The department continues to grow and attain new paradigms in chemistry education in the country.

BITS Pilani

A premier academy of India, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (BITS Pilani), was deemed to be a university in 1964. With the recentexpansion to the Goa, Hyderabad and Dubai campuses and the Vision 2020 strategic plan, BITS-Pilani is planned to emerge as a University for excellence in science and technology education and research. The 240 acres self-contained Pilani campus boasts of its neatly laid original design along with the recent additions ofNew Academic Building, Library, Sports complex, New Science Block etc. The Pilani Campus hosts the state-of-the-art technology for teaching and research that empowers its intellectual core, especially, a signature network capability that brings the four campuses on a roundtable and shares classrooms and cross-campus activities. On-campus research facilities and active inter -disciplinary research approach have successfully attracted healthy amounts of research funding from government agencies as well as private bodies/ industry. Thus equipped, BITS Pilani steers forward to explore & establish a brighter tomorrow.
