About SPS-2019 Conference

To promote the recent fundamental understanding and technological advancement in the area of Polymer Science and Technology, "Symposium on Polymer Science", will be held on July 05-06, 2019, at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Kolkata, India.
The Society for Polymer Science (SPS), India, organizes MACRO conferences in every two years at different parts of India. We have vibrant Kolkata Chapter in SPS and this time we would like to arrange the Chapter meeting under the supervision of Centre for Advanced Functional Materials (CAFM), IISER Kolkata. Specific focus of this meeting will be advances in general polymer science.

About CAFM

At IISER Kolkata, the Centre for Advanced Functional Materials (CAFM) has a special mission to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research and education in the science and technological applications of advanced solid state and soft materials. With an emphasis on nanoscience and nanotechnology, the research areas of CAFM include hybrid solar cells; fuel cells; strongly correlated materials; polymer and supramolecular delivery vehicles; materials for environmental remediation. CAFM coordinates to foster advanced research towards synthesis of smart materials, structure-property elucidation, device fabrication and cutting-edge applications. The faculty members of CAFM provide research training to BS-MS, IPhD students, PhD scholars and postdoctoral fellows, and conduct interdisciplinary courses on advanced functional materials. 

About IISER Kolkata

IISER Kolkata, established in 2006, is one of the seven Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs) created by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to promote quality education and research in basic sciences. It is an autonomous institute devoted to both teaching and research in an integrated manner. IISER Kolkata offers BS-MS (5-yr integrated masters), post-B.Sc. integrated PhD program, 2-yr MS (by thesis) program for B.Tech students as well as PhD program.
