About Conference

Objective of the Conference

The biennial NATCOSEB is the flagship conference of Indian Society for Surface Science and Technology (ISSST). It aims to provide a platform to scientists, technologists, and researchers for exchanging their ideas and advancement through scientific discourses. Participants are expected to communicate among themselves on their studies on micelle, microemulsion, emulsion, gel, supramolecular assemblies, material sciences and various other aspects of surface chemistry. As the cutting-edge research today has become more of a group and collaborative work rather than individual effort, the ISSST hopes that NATCOSEB will help the researchers to bond among themselves for the betterment of their own research and also for the benefit of the society at large. Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur, under the aegis of ISSST is organizing XXI NATCOSEB Second time.

Indian Society for Surface Science & Technology

The society was established in 1983 with the aim to cultivate and disseminate the knowledge of surface science among researchers, students, teachers and general public. Surface science being a ubiquitous one, its importance cannot be overemphasized. The industry – academia collaboration is one of its stated goals because of the importance of surface science in general public life. It organizes international, national and local seminars throughout the year. It has more than 600 members from India and abroad. The society publishes a peer reviewed international research journal, Journal of Surface Science and Technology as well as a Newsletter.
