VECC is inviting national experts from Research Organizations, Industry and Academia to share their experiences and expertise. There will be no registration fee. The topics to be covered are Formal Modeling, Verification and Validation of large control Systems. The developments (both theoretical and applied areas) and deployments of tools in these areas have wide-ranging impacts both in control system design and their diagnostics. The Department of Atomic Energy is having activities almost all of which deal with large control systems in design, development and deployment phase.</p> Fri, 18 Nov 2016 14:28:39 IST Wed, 22 Feb 2017 08:00:00 IST - 26th National Symposium on Cryogenics & Superconductivity <p>Cryogenics and superconductivity play pivotal roles in modern scientific applications starting from modern accelerators to medical diagnostics. A &ldquo;<em><strong>National Symposium on Cryogenics and Superconductivity (NSCS-26)</strong></em>&rdquo; is planned at <strong>VECC Kolkata</strong> to discuss diverse activities of cryogenics and superconductivity. The conference will consist of invited and contributed lectures, and poster presentations. Participants from all over our country are expected to take part. It will provide opportunities for the young researchers, scientists and technologists to interact closely with the stalwarts in this subject from all over the country. It will be a forum for discussions on this subject so that new trends can be identified and progress of the existing technology can be discussed.</p> Fri, 18 Nov 2016 19:09:55 IST Wed, 01 Mar 2017 08:00:00 IST - CNT Lectures on Special Topics in Nuclear Astrophysics <p><em>Nuclear fusion reactions are widely used in nuclear physics to produce nuclei far from the beta &szlig;-stability line and superheavy nuclei, to explore the properties of excited nuclear states and the mechanisms of their decay and to study the dynamics of nuclear reactions. The burning of stars and nucleosynthesis of elements and their relative abundances are associated with reactions involving the sub-barrier fusion of nuclei. In India, with the upcoming RIB facilities, many research students and scientist are getting involved in studying various nuclear reactions of astrophysical importance. </em></p><p><em>With the energies &amp; interaction rates foreseen at FAIR, the compressed baryonic matter will create highest baryon densities in nucleus&ndash;nucleus collisions to explore the properties of superdense baryonic matter. These nuclear collisions can compress the nuclear matter to densities achieved within neutron stars and core-collapse supernovae. Precise knowledge of Equation of State for exotic phases in superdense asymmetric &amp; symmetric baryonic matter enables one to explore neutron star structure, their mass-radius relations and interior phase transitions as well as heavy-ion reactions at intermediate and relativistic energies. Core superfluidity with effect of strong magnetic field is also emerging as an important field of research.</em></p><p><strong>The &lsquo;CNT Lectures on Special Topics in Nuclear Astrophysics&rsquo; is intended for training of research students, post-docs and young researchers&nbsp;&amp; expose them to the cutting-edge research in these fields. About 30 participants can be accommodated with full local hospitality and domestic travel support as per guidelines. There will be three lectures per day and the remaining time will be utilized for discussions and tutorials. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work. The school is a part of the Centre for Nuclear Theory (CNT) project of VECC.</strong></p><p><strong>Last date for sending application is December 16,&nbsp;2016.</strong></p> Thu, 01 Dec 2016 22:43:13 IST
