Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) an autonomous institution under the Department of Science & Technology (DST), organized the 8th International Conference On Perspectives in Vibrational Spectroscopy (ICOPVS) to discuss recent advances, perspectives, emerging technologies and research trends in all kinds of vibrational spectroscopies.
The conference brought together over international and Indian speakers to discuss recent advances, perspectives, emerging technologies and research trends in all kinds of vibrational spectroscopies -- a non-destructive identification method that measures the vibrational energy in a compound.
The inaugural session was graced by Prof. Wolfgang Keifer from the University of Würzhung, the honorary chair; VK Rastogi, from Indian Spectroscopy Society, Prof. V S Jayakumar from Mar Baselios Institute of Technology, and Prof. Hemalatha Balaram, President In-charge at JNCASR.
Prof. Chandrabhas Narayana,Professor, JNCASR and ICOPVS conference chair along with Prof. A. Sundaresan and Prof.Umesh V Waghmare, the co-chairs, hosted the 8th ICOPVS, with support from JNCASR, Department of Science and Technology, Science and Engineering Research Board – DST.
Over 5 days, more than 30 international and 30 Indian speakers discussed recent advances, perspectives, emerging technologies and research trends in all kinds of vibrational spectroscopies. More than 100 students from various research institutions, universities and colleges, from across India, presented their research work and involved in discussions with professors through their talks.
The conference was supported by Horiba Scientific and Renishaw and Labindia, Laser Spectra Services, and Quantum Design India.
