About the  Conference


The first International Conference on Thin Films & Nanotechnology: Knowledge, Leadership, and Commercialization (ICTN-KLC): 2021 will be held online, during Aug 24-26, 2021. This conference is organized to take forward the legacy of Padma Shri Professor Kasturi Lal Chopra in motivating and nurturing young students to become dedicated scientists, leaders and entrepreneurs for paying back to the society via scientific discoveries, development of pathbreaking technologies and commercialization. The ICTN-KLC: 2021, the first one of its kind, aims to bring together students, academicians, scientists, technologists, and entrepreneurs working on development and applications of thin films and nanomaterials from lab to commercial (industrial) scale. The inaugural 3-days conference will be organized virtually from the foundation day of the Thin Film Lab (TFL). In addition to scientific talks, there will be sessions dedicated to research ethics, leadership, and entrepreneurship targeted mainly for early career researchers. The conference will consist of plenary/invited talks and contributed papers on various focus areas in Thin Films & Nanotechnology. There will be dedicated poster sessions where Ph.D. students/researchers will have an opportunity to present their work online to an international panel of experts and get feedback on their research ideas/results. The following focus areas have been identified for ICTN-KLC: 2021. Research scholars working in these areas are particularly encouraged to attend and present their work.
