Young Scientist’s Conference (YSC)

The target groups of the Young Scientists’ Conference (YSC) are young scientists/researchers/faculty/science innovators/professionals from national laboratories, academic institutions and industry. Postdoctoral and doctoral fellows in all areas of fundamental and applied sciences including highly motivated MSc and B-tech students can also participate in the event. YSC in India International Science Festival invites participants engaged in all areas of scientific research and technological developments. It would provide an exposure to the young and enthusiastic researchers to explore the cutting edge research and technology in the interdisciplinary approach.

YSC will also give them an opportunity to enhance their research as well as academic network with other experts both in their core and interdisciplinary areas. YSC expects to set a platform for academic debates about the latest research and technological challenges necessary for addressing the immediate needs of this country. There would be plenary, parallel and poster sessions including a special session for young achievers. There will also be sessions to discuss “Career Opportunities in India and Abroad after PhD” emphasizing opportunities in various industries and other domains. There would be an effort to share and educate the national scientific policies among young researchers with discussions on “Research Methodology and Funding Proposal”. Apart from the general poster session on specified themes, there will be a special poster session to extract the best ideas for “Water Crisis and Conservation” in India.

Special encouragement will be given to researchers from the Industry fraternity and scientific media houses (journals and science communicators) to showcase their achievements and discuss future prospects.

Delegates will be nominated by their respective Universities/Institutions/ Departments/R&D Labs. Apart from that, interested candidates can also apply directly through online registration and they will be shortlisted based on their submitted abstracts.
