Achievements of Women in Science and Technology: Current Scenario and Future Prospects 13-14th Jan. 2017

Panjab University has a long tradition of pursuing excellence in teaching and research in science and technology, humanities, social sciences, performing arts and sports. The University supports excellence and innovation in academic programmes, research, scholarship and teaching. For more than a century, it has served various societal needs with distinction. The Indian Council of Social Science Research has set-up it's North-Western Regional Centre on the Panjab University Campus. The Centre runs a library, a seminar complex and a guest house for visiting scholars under its study-grants programme.
Founded by Dr. S.S. Bhatnagar at Lahore in 1925, the department of Chemistry is one of the prestigious departments of Panjab University. Several faculty members are recipients of coveted awards such as Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar award, Jawaharlal Nehru fellowship, Raman and Palit awards.  Many faculty members are bestowed with F.N.A., F.A.Sc., F.N.A.Sc., The department has been selected by the UGC first for COSIST and Special Assistance Programme (SAP) and it is the Centre for Advanced Studies in Chemistry (CAS) for the last 16 years.  The Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India has accorded it the status of "DST-FIST Supported Department”. The department is well-known for its research activities and has very well equipped research laboratories including state of the art Central Instrumentation Laboratory (CIL).



The department is holding this conference for the first time to celebrate the achievements of women scientists and to motivate the young female students and researchers and create awareness about the endless opportunities available to them in the field of research.
The objective of the two day conference is to help shatter stereotypes by exposing students to female role models in science and to help spark both their curiosity and self-belief in disciplines where girls have traditionally been under-represented.
This symposium will focus on all the fields of Chemical Sciences:
Ø Carbon Materials, Nano Technology and its applications
Ø Environmental pollution control and management
Ø Polymer Composites and Pharmaceutical Technology
Ø Natural Resource Management, Greener environment and Innovation
Ø Inorganic/ Organometallic Chemistry/ Synthetic Organic Chemistry
Ø Theoretical/Analytical Chemistry
The scientific sessions would include lectures by eminent women scientists from various research fields in chemistry. This would provide a platform to students, research scholars and faculty members to learn and share their research findings with honorable scientists in their respective fields. The thesis presentation session will be held for research fellows (who have submitted their thesis within the past six months) to provide them opportunity to express their views and scientific work. In addition an oral presentation session will be held for research scholars who have completed at least three years in research. Young scientist award will be given to the outstanding research fellows. Another session will include three categories of poster presentations i.e.  by undergraduate, post-graduate students and research scholars and each category will be evaluated separately.
The conference will begin on 13th January, 2017 with an inaugural function. The technical sessions will comprise of invited lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions. All aspects of emerging areas in chemistry will form the part of the scientific sessions.
