Indian Vacuum Society (IVS) was established in 1970 to promote vacuum science and technology in academic, industrial and R&D institutions in India. IVS is a member society of the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA). It has been organizing International and national symposia, short term courses and workshops on different aspects of Vacuum Science & Technology at regular intervals. So far 27 National symposia, 4 International Symposia and 47 courses have been organized at various locations in India. There has been an active participation from R & D establishments, universities and Indian industries during all these events. In view of the current global scenario and emerging trends in vacuum technology, executive committee of IVS felt it appropriate to organise an international symposium at Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre, Kolkata during February 15-17, 2012 where large high vacuum systems are used for K-130 Cyclotron & K-500 Superconducting Cyclotron. Also a large cryogenic system using LHe plant is in operation for cryopanels & superconducting magnet for K-500 Cyclotron. The main areas covered under the symposium will be production and measurement of vacuum, leak detection, large vacuum systems, vacuum metallurgy, vacuum materials and application of high vacuum in cyclotrons, LINACS and other accelerators. It will provide an opportunity for interaction amongst active researchers & technologists and to review the current scenario, report recent results, share the available expertise and consider the future R&D efforts in this area. A souvenir will be published and an exhibition of the vacuum related equipments will also be organized along with the symposium.
