With the Nobel Laureates’ Conclave, the IIIT-A will lay-down an important milestone in the history of Science and Technology in India.

A salient feature of this event will be the Media Open House with the Nobel Laureates for Indian and international media persons – a program that will give the Indian media an opportunity to interact with the best brains from the international scientific community.

With help, support and inspiration from the Ministry of Human Resource Development and the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, IIIT-A is organizing a Science Conclave 2008 at the campus of IIIT-Allahabad, which will also include the Nobel Laureates’ Conclave – an event which will see about 12 international Nobel Laureates from different countries converge at one location and interact with hundreds of Indian scientists, researchers and technology students. Senior members from the Government secretariat, concerned ministries and from the Atomic, Nuclear and Space Research Departments will feature on the guest list. India Inc is expected to also turn up in full force to support the efforts of the scientific community in India.

According to Dr M D Tiwari, Founding Director, IIIT-A, “For the first time in Indian and Asian history, 12 Nobel Laureates, leaders, policymakers, research scholars and students including the first batch of the “INSPIRE” program by the DST will participate in the conclave to discuss the emerging trends in the scientific research and technological innovations in world of science. This is a great opportunity for the Indian scientific community particularly young minds to interact with global veterans and stalwarts in the respective scientific disciplines.”

The Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad (IIIT-A) was established in 1999, as a centre of excellence in Information Technology and allied areas.
