The 2nd International Conference: Kathmandu Symposia on Advanced Materials-2014 (KaSAM-2014), organized by Nepal Polymer Institute (NPI) in association with Tribhuvan University (Kathmandu) Kathmandu University (Kavre), Université de Rouen (France) and Humboldt Club Nepal, is at the final stages of its preparation. KaSAM-2014, a long term initiative of Nepal Polymer Institute, is scheduled to be held in Everest Hotel, Kathmandu, NEPAL from 7-10 September, 2014. The congress will be preceded by a 4 days long Kathmandu Autumn School on Chemistry and Chemical Technologies (KASChem) from Sept. 4-7, 2014, the first autumn school of its kind ever held in South Asia.
The KaSAM-2014 will focus on Nanostructured and Bio-related Materials that provides a global platform for presentation of innovations in material science and engineering (MSE) from academia and industries. The technical programme of the conference will comprise invited lectures, oral and poster sessions providing a survey of recent developments in MSE.
Professor Rameshwar Adhikari (Convener of KaSAM-2014, who is also the President of Nepal Polymer Institute based at Kathmandu) mentioned that about 160 participants have already registered for the KaSAM-2014. According to Prof. Adhikari "more than 100 of them are foreigners including distinguished delegates representing over 11 countries across the globe". He further stated - "this year the pre-conference school-Kathmandu Autumn School on Chemistry and Chemical Technologies (KASChem) will be attended by 35 Ph.D students, young researchers and newcomers in the field of material science. KASChem will give an overview of recent developments and research trends in synthesis, characterization and applications of new materials. The Autumn School is the initiative envisioned as annual activity towards the development of Regional Advanced School of Materials Science and Engineering. The school will be formally inaugurated by renowned scholar Bharat Ratna Laureate Professor C. N. R. Rao (JNCASR, Bangalore, India). The school and the accompanying conference are hoped to be the milestone in promoting education and researches in the field of advanced materials, chemistry and chemical technologies in Nepal".
