The Panjab University, in collaboration with CRIKC institutions of Chandigarh region, has been organizing Chandigarh Science Congress (CHASCON) every year for the last decade.  Since its inception in 2007, the Congress has come a long way  and continues to encourage the young and innovative minds to pursue career in Science and Technology by providing  a suitable platform to enhance their research acumen through interaction with eminent scientists in varied disciplines of science and engineering. An integrative approach consisting of continuous interplay of all of the sciences would benefit everyone by providing at least an intuitive, broad-based view of science as a whole. This would lead to understanding the notions of scientific progress, scientific objectivity, and the growth of knowledge by taking up the challenges that have been issued by scientists. The resulting advancement in science would also be a major contributor to society’s socio-economic development , the global welfare of mankind, and the quality of life.


The acquisition of scientific knowledge is essential to human survival.  The primary objective of this congress is to familiarize on the updated trends, and sensitize and stimulate the young minds to bring out the best in the context of emerging paradigms in indigenous and foreign scientific knowledge. Also, the congress will bring together the scholars, researchers and industrialists on a common platform to exchange views and ideas on how to communicate science and its basic values to the society at large. The deliberations would explore the new dimensions in the field of industry, academia, research, IPR, entrepreneurial ventures, regulatory affairs, and soft-skill management. The Conference events will encompass keynote talks and poster sessions demonstrating current research outcomes and information pertaining to various scientific domains. The ‘CHASCON’ team cordially invites scientists, researchers, administrators, technologists, planners, teachers & students to participate in this magnificent Science Congress and make it a huge success.
