Workshop on MODERN TRENDS IN POLYMER SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (MTPST 2013) (03-04 April, 2013) Under the Auspices of TEQIP Organised by DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS Institute of Chemical Technology (Deemed University under Sec 3 of UGC Act 1956, Elite Status and Centre of Excellence – Govt. of Maharashtra) N. Parekh Marg, Matunga, Mumbai – Registration forms should be sent to: Dr. R. R. Deshmukh / Shri. S. Kasthurirangan, Department of Physics, Institute of Chemical Technology, N. Parekh Marg, Matunga, Mumbai – Mobile: / MTPST 2013 About the institute The Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai (formerly UDCT) has grown to become a premier (deemed) University dedicated to education, training, research and industrial collaboration in chemical engineering, chemical technology, applied chemistry, applied physics, pharmacy and biotechnology. ICT was established on October 1, 1933, with the specific intention of enhancing India’s scientific manpower in chemical science and technology. It was granted autonomy by the UGC in 1985, and finally converted to a deemed-to-be University by MHRD in In 2012, it was awarded Elite Status and declared as a Centre of Excellence by the Government of Maharashtra. Currently, ICT has 1080 undergraduate, 319 postgraduate and 547 doctoral students. (More information at )www.ictmumbai.edu.in About the department The Department of Physics at ICT has the distinction of being one of the earliest Departments in the Institute. It was started as Optics Section in 1935 which was subsequently changed to Applied Physics Section and then to Department of Physics. The Department contributes to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the Institute. In addition, the Department has several research facilities, and the faculty members are engaged in active research in diverse areas of Physics. The Department intends to start a new M. Sc. (Physics) programme from the year 2013.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP India is witnessing rapid advances in the design, fabrication, processing and manufacturing of polymeric materials. Scientists, engineers and technologists are engaged in exploring the diverse structural, mechanical and thermal properties of these materials for a wide spectrum of applications ranging from commercial use to defence. The objective of this workshop is to deliberate on the latest trends with specific focus on processing and structure-property relationships. It is also essential to bring about a more synergetic and interactive approach to the exchange of knowledge of the latest developments among eminent persons working in industry and academia. It is expected that the deliberations and discussions among the two groups will generate new and novel ideas in the processing of polymeric materials and their properties for specific applications. Specific topics to be covered include – Polymer physics and chemistry Polymer blend rheology Polymer processing Structure-property relationship Nano-scale characterisation Polymer modeling and simulation Applications to textiles Applications to surface coating technology The workshop will be held on April, 2013 from 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM at the K. V. Auditorium, ICT. There is no registration fee; however, your valued participation has to be confirmed by sending in a duly filled registration form by 27 th March, The certificate of participation will be printed according to the name given in the registration form. No TA/DA will be payable to the participants. No accommodation is available. Dr. (Mrs.) V. D.
