Scientific Programme

The scientific programme will consist of oral and poster presentations based on original research work. Undergraduate students, research scholars, project staff and post-doctoral fellows working on topics in physics are invited to register for the symposium. Registration is imperative even for those who wish to attend the symposium without presenting.

We also plan to have talks by researchers distinguished in their branches of physics. The details of this part of the programme will be uploaded shortly.

The full schedule of the programme on 15th January, 2011 is given below. You can also download it in pdf format from here.
