In order to expose the technical personnel working in this field to the advancement of Vacuum Science and Technology, Indian Vacuum Society, Zonal Chapter Kolkata is organizing a workshop. The workshop shall impart this knowledge and propagate the principles and practices of vacuum science and technology to Undergraduate students, Research Scholars, Scientific/Technical workers of Engineering Colleges, Research Institutions and Universities.</p> Fri, 08 Aug 2014 11:55:45 IST Mon, 27 Oct 2014 08:00:00 IST - IWAD and 14th RD51 Collaboration Meeting, Kolkata, India Wed, 20 Aug 2014 21:23:06 IST Wed, 19 Nov 2014 09:00:00 IST - National Conference on “Current Trends in Advanced Materials” <marquee direction="left" behavior="scroll"><font color="red"> <b>Abstract Submission Open </b></font> </marquee> <p>We are organising a National Conference on &ldquo;Current Trends in Advanced Materials&rdquo; (CTMat-2014) at Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), Kolkata, India, during November 19-21, 2014. Material science professionals from all over the country will gather in this conference to network, present research activities and share ideas. There will be invited lectures on the conference theme. Students and young researchers will have the opportunity to deliver short oral presentations of their research work. We plan to keep interactive poster sessions as well.</p><p>The subject areas include, but are not limited to:</p><p>&bull; Nanomaterials</p><p>&bull; Surface &amp; Interface</p><p>&bull; Multifunctional Materials</p><p>&bull; Irradiation Effects in materials</p> Fri, 08 Aug 2014 15:46:22 IST Tue, 25 Nov 2014 09:30:00 IST - Workshop on Science with Rare Ion Beams SCRIBE-2014 <p><a href=""><strong>VECC</strong></a><strong> and </strong><a href=""><strong>TRIUMF</strong></a><strong> are organizing a workshop on &ldquo;Science with Rare Ion Beams (SCRIBE-2014)&rdquo; during November 25-28, 2014 at VECC Kolkata.</strong></p><p><strong>SCRIBE-2014 aims to discuss Rare Ion Beams (RIB) from the perspective of accelerators and beams, isotope production, and fundamental science by bringing together scientists working in this field from various laboratories. The workshop will include a special session on VECC and TRIUMF&rsquo;s joint initiative on development of a high-power, superconducting electron linac and converter-target module for the flagship projects ANURIB and ARIEL in India and Canada, respectively. It is expected that SCRIBE-2014 would help in fine-tuning the physics programs of ANURIB and ARIEL and provide the platform for discussing possible future collaborations in this forefront area of science and technology.</strong></p> Tue, 19 Aug 2014 14:33:25 IST Mon, 19 Jan 2015 08:00:00 IST - Winter School on Nuclear Astrophysics The school is intended for research students, post-docs and young researchers, mainly from Indian universities and national laboratories. 30 participants can be accommodated with full local hospitality and domestic travel support as per guidelines. The school is a part of the Centre for Nuclear Theory (CNT) activities at VECC. The course content of the school has been classified into five major topics which will be taught by eminent scientists in the fields. It is planned to have three classes per day, the rest of the time will be for discussion and tutorials. Students and young researchers will have the opportunity to present their work. We also plan to invite few of the eminent Indian scientists for evening lectures.
