Organised by the Royal Society and Government of India, the Commonwealth Science Conference will be held in Bangalore on 25 – 28 November 2014.
This will be the first Commonwealth Science Conference (CSC) for nearly 50 years and is being organised under the aegis of the Royal Society and supported by the Government of India.
The goals of the conference are to celebrate excellence in Commonwealth science; to provide opportunities for cooperation between researchers in different Commonwealth countries; to inspire young scientists; and to build scientific capacity in the developing nations within the Commonwealth. The scope of the meeting will be broad and will include physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and engineering, as well as science policy.
The Conference will be attended by 300 specially invited scientists and 70 PhD students from across the Commonwealth, together with local delegates from Bangalore. We anticipate representatives from over 30 countries. It promises to be a truly auspicious event.
