Science is a powerful means of understanding the world in which we live and it is also capable of yielding enormous returns that directly enhance socio-economic development and the quality of our lives. Scientific advances over the last five decades have led to revolutionary changes in technology, health, nutrition and communication. Moreover, the role of science promises to be yet greater in the future because of ever-more-rapid scientific progress.Meanwhile, humanity is being confronted with problems on a global scale, many - such as environmental degradation, pollution and climatic change - provoked by the mismanagement of natural resources or unsustainable production and consumption patterns. Even if the technology implicated in these problems can be said to have stemmed from science, we cannot hope to resolve these problems without the correct and timely use of science in the future. And yet, in spite of the opportunities it offers us all, science itself is facing wavering confidence and uncertain investment, as well as dilemmas of an ethical nature. These problems can only be solved if the scientific and business communities, governments and the general public are able to reach, through debate, a common ground on science with respect to the service it is to provide to society and a new commitment to science from society in the years to come.
In convening an “International Web Conference on Recent Advances in Science (IWCRAS 2020)”: a new commitment, on 30th – 31st July, 2020, Department of Physics and Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC), Don Bosco College, Tura, Meghalaya in co-operation with nine other partners will provide a unique forum for this much-needed interactions between the scientific experts and the students. The target participants are Post Graduate (PG) students, Researchers and Academicians of all branches of Science.
The Conference addressed and involved state governments and institutions, educational and research establishments, members of the scientific community, the business sector, various societies and international scientific academicians, as well as the media and the general public. All stakeholders with a vested interest in science and its role in societal development are welcome as active participants in the web conference process by means of free registration by clicking a link and filling up a simple form. All participants and presenters will get an e-certificate after filling up the feedback forms on both the days. The feedback form will be given on the live platform in which the web conference will be organized.
This web conference will be a unique for the host college as it for the first time that an international web conference will be organized by the college and that too the participants will be able to present quality talk from the findings in their research in all branches of science. Also, it is a matter of great pride that altogether nine collaborators will be there with the host college. An e-abstract of the conference will also be published.
