Kathmandu Symposia on Advanced Materials (KaSAM) is an initiative of Nepal Polymer Institute (NPI) undertaken to strengthen networking of materials scientists from Nepal and the South Asian Countries to the rest of the world and has the motto: Cross-Linking Science and Virtues.
The main objectives of this biennial conference series is to provide a rigorous discussion forum for the materials scientists on recent advances, challenges and solution paths in different areas of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). Polymeric Materials will form integral part of KaSAM endeavours. The First and Second KaSAM held in Kathmandu in 2012 and 2014 as well as the Third one held in Pokhara in 2016 were highly successful in attracting eminent scientists, young researchers, and students from more than 25 countries across the globe.
The 4th Edition of KaSAM is going to be organized in Kathmandu from Oct. 26-29, 2018 in association with Research Centre for Applied Science and Technology (RECAST), Tribhuvan University. The symposia will be accompanied by one-day short course on ‘Recent Developments and Research Trends in Synthesis, Characterization and Applications of New Materials’, organized on Oct. 26, 2018 which is targeted to undergraduate students, graduate students, young researchers, newcomers in the field and any interested individuals.
On behalf of the organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to participate and contribute to the symposia.We hope that the conference and the accompanying short course will be of help in promoting education and researches in material science, chemistry, and related biomedical sciences in Nepal. Please plan to join us at KaSAM-2018 and also explore the natural beauty and cultural heritages of Kathmandu Valley.
We eagerly look forward to welcoming you all at the KaSAM-2018 in Kathmandu.
