Ashok, IAS, Vice Chancellor, RGUKT Basar, in a press note issued in Hyderabad, the state capital of Telangana today.

According to Dr. Ravi Varala, Convener of the meet, the internationally acclaimed scientists from Physics and Chemistry come together to discuss and showcase their research findings to researchers from India and abroad.

The seminar will cover from basics to applications in Nano-Science and Nano-Technology, Synthetic Chemistry, Green Chemistry and Computational Materials Science, Dr Ravi Varala added.

Prof. Apparao M Rao, Director of Clemson Nano -Mterial Institute, Clemson University, a 128years old University in USA will be the Chief Guest at the inaugural on 18th December and will deliver Keynote address. His research in nanoscience and nanotechnology has been cited over 30,000 in open literature

The state of South Carolina in USA conferred on him its highest honor - the 2014 Governor’s award for excellence in scientific research. Rao is also an adjunct professor at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, India where he initiated a nanomaterials program, and directs research projects of M.S./Ph.D. students. He has served as the chairman and organizer of several international conferences, including the Frontiers in Nano Sci., Tech. & Appl. 2014, Carbon 2010, & Nano 2010.

Prof. S. Jonnalagadda from University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa will be the special invitee. Indian born Professor Sreekantha Babu Jonnalagadda, published over 240 Research Papers and participated in over 100 international conferences on the subject held in 40 different countries.

The theme of the conference is “Applications of Smart Materials in the areas of Nano-Science and Nano-Technology, Synthetic Chemistry, Sensors and Computational Materials Science”. The Conference aims to address the application aspect of these Functional materials in areas of societal relevance, to discuss current scientific issues and to ignite scientific temper in young researchers.

The Inaugural and Key Note Address will be followed by a plenary talk by Prof. Jonnala Gadda from South Africa and the other Plenary and invited speakers include eminent Professors from IIT’s, NIT’s and IISER etc.
