About the Conference

Human drive for better living always ended up in theoretical and technological developments in every field of science. Understanding of the latest developments in scientific field, be it theoretical or technological, brushes up the brains working on it for further up thrust.   The conference will highlight the theme “Outreaching the technologies for bright future” to bring together researches, scientists, academicians and industrialists from around the world and to set a common platform for discussion and exploring recent advances in the happenings of the hottest fields of Physics viz., Multifunctional Materials, Computational Physics, Nuclear and Particle Physics and Earth Space and Planetary Physics. Conference is thus aimed for promoting, developing, and disseminating interdisciplinary research from many different fields of physics. Researchers from universities, institutes, and related industries, working on various fields of Physics are invited to present papers. The conference is expected to enable brainstorming of new ideas to improve yourself and your professional career. Papers presented (oral presentation) in the conference will have the opportunity to be considered for publication in UGC approved peer reviewed journals. The conference will be conducted throughtheOnline platform: Google Meet.

 Multi-functional materials

Material science is an interdisciplinary field in which research is fast progressing for the last few decades. It is a vast field which includes polymers, composites, superconducting materials, nano materials etc. The research in this field is comparatively cost effective, for the same reason a lot of work is progressing in this field in different parts of the world. The design and manufacture of materials capable of multiple functions – so called “multifunctional” materials – has emerged as a rapidly growing direction within materials science. It is characterised by multidisciplinary research activity, and the significant potential for wide-ranging technological innovation extending to energy, environmental sustainability, healthcare, aerospace, nanoelectronics, soft robotics and semiconductors. A lot of researchers from our country have received patents and international recognitions for the development of multifunctional materials. The latest developments in this field are a common topic of discussion in workshops and seminars. We are looking forward to associate with eminent scientists working in this field.

Nuclear and Radiation Physics

Society supports fundamental research in the expectation of benefits that support global priorities. The search for new knowledge often stimulates advances in the limits of technology. It leads to instrumentation and theoretical concepts that address problems of societal concern, and to advances in other areas of science. The concepts and techniques of nuclear physics have had exceptional impact in this regard. It promotes sustainable development by improving health and the quality of life, through applications such as nuclear medicine, food preservation and safety, industrial materials and processes, basic scientific research, environmental studies, and the generation of electrical power with minimal environmental impact. By integrating the aspects of engineering, medical physics and radiation dosimetry, new solid-state materials can be synthesized for accurate detection of radiation to improve the quality of radiation treatment of cancer and to reduce the imaging dose of diagnostic radiology. The Conference will discuss the recent innovations, exchange ideas, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered, and solutions adopted in the fields of Nuclear and Radiation Physics.

Earth and planetary Science

Earth Science is specifically concerned with the interactions flanked by atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere and how these interactions control the global climate. It incorporates and integrates materials from traditional geology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, atmospheric science, polar science, cryosphere and other fields. Planetary science is the scientific study of planets and their planetary systems which includes moons, ring systems, gas clouds, and magnetospheres. It involves understanding how planetary systems formed, how these systems work and how all their components interact. Earth and Planetary Science is a cross-discipline field including aspects of atmospheric science, geology, meteorology, oceanography, astronomy and space physics. This conference goals to unite eminent scholars of this fields under one roof to vitrine their investigations in their relevant fields.

Computational Physics

Over the past two decades, the dramatically increased power of both computing hardware and numerical algorithms have made possible the treatment of complex systems. For example, the 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson, the 2013 Nobel Prize in chemistry for computational modeling of molecules, and the 2016 discovery of gravitational waves. Bycombining quantum computing, machine learning and data science helps to simulate quantum mechanical systems at the smallest length scales. The computational research can give explanations for phenomena observed in nanotube structures and graphene. They form a basis for commonality of perspectives and approaches among efforts in computational science in almost all of the sub disciplines of physics, as well as in the other mathematical and physical sciences. Computational simulation has taken its place as the method for doing science that is a bridge between experiment and theory. Many intellectual challenges arise in many areas of physics and other fundamental issues associated with complex nonlinear systems. These intellectual challenges shall emerge as the crux of discussion of this Conference
