About the Conference

As part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations, CSIR-NIIST is organizing the International Conference on Chemistry and Applications of Soft Materials (CASM 2022), during 25-27 July, 2022.

Soft materials have been attracting considerable attention in recent times due to their interdisciplinary nature, multi-functional applications and scope for basic as well as applied R&D. Such materials, with multifarious advantages over conventional materials, have found widespread applications in energy, nano and molecular electronics, smart photonic systems and biomedical devices. CASM 2022 aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, and researchers to exchange knowledge on all aspects of soft materials. The conference is envisioned to provide an interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners, industrialists and educators to discuss innovations, trends, problems and solutions in this field. Concerted R&D in developing such materials and related technologies is crucial in the thrust areas of chemistry, biology, material science, engineering and nanotechnology. 

CASM 2022 is a valid attempt to educate and mobilize both established and young researchers to emerge in the cutting-edge areas of soft materials and supramolecular chemistry, for the realization of novel and engineered functional materials. The conference is envisioned to provide an opportunity for scientists and students to get exposed to the latest developments in the fundamental and applied aspects of soft materials. Furthermore, we aim to promote exchange of ideas and create an environment for collaborative R&D endeavors in the emerging frontiers of interdisciplinary areas having national and international significance. The conference also aims to persuade the scientific community to pursue R&D activities for sustainable material creation and management, and incorporate it into socio-economic policies for the development of the society and the nation. We will ensure every effort to bring together experts from the scientific fraternity, government, academics, and industry for fruitful discussions and deliberations. The major themes of the conference encompass typical areas of interest in chemical, electronic, biological and photophysical aspects of soft materials and the conference would be of interest to physicists, chemists, biologists as well as industrialists working in this area.
