The three-day ‘International Conference on Fundamental and Advanced Research in Chemistry (FARC-2024)’  from June 9-11 organized by Indian Institute of Technology Mandi (IIT Mandi)featured distinguished researchers from India and around the world, providing a vibrant platform for interaction. Attendees included experimental and theoretical chemists, light and electron microscopic imaging experts, material scientists, polymer chemists, and more. FARC – 2024 hosted several eminent speakers around the globe, along with 160 very high-quality poster presentations.

Over the years, research in chemistry has experienced tremendous growth, leading to numerous advancements and alternatives for societal betterment. The conference aimed to highlight the recent research focusing on both fundamental and applied chemistry in areas including chemical sciences, material sciences, spectroscopy, microscopy, and imaging.

Speaking during the conference, Prof. Chayan K. Nandi, Chair, FARC – 2024, said, “Our dream comes true for organizing such a mega event with a total participation of approximately 300, where 54 eminent speakers along with 6 highly reputed international speakers participated. Their presence made the event a grand success.”

The key topics of the conference included Advanced Functional Materials, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Green Chemistry, Inorganic & Organometallic Chemistry, Spectroscopy of Materials, Electron Microscopy & Application, Single Molecule Spectroscopy, Nanomaterials & Nanocomposites, Biopolymers & Biomaterials, Theoretical & Computational Chemistry, Photocatalysis & Electrocatalysis, and Waste Management and Sustainability.

One of the keynote speakers, Prof. Frank Jülicher, managing director of the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems mentioned that he found all the talks stimulating, reflecting very high-quality science. He also added that as the conference covered a wide variety of fields there is an immense probability of exchange of ideas which can help in the advancement of both specialized and multi-disciplinary works.

 FARC – 2024 speakers included:

  • Prof. Amit Meller, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Israel
  • Prof. Frank Jülicher, Max-Planck-Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, Germany
  • Prof. Rodolphe Antoine, Institut Lumière Matière, France
  • Prof. Peter Pohl, Johannes Kepler University, Austria
  • Prof. René M. Königs, RWTH Aachen University, Germany
  • Prof. F. Ekkehardt Hahn, University of Muenster, Germany
  • Prof. Tapas Chakraborty. IACS Kolkata, India
  • Prof. Krishna P. Kaliappan, IIT Bombay, India
  • Prof. Bhuvanesh Gupta, IIT Delhi, India
  • Prof. Srabani Taraphder. IIT Kharagpur, India
  • Prof. Amalendu Chandar, IIT Kanpur, India

The conference facilitated brainstorming sessions among young and experienced researchers, academicians, technologists, and policy planners for the betterment of the future

Along with the talks, there were many thought-provoking discussions among the participating speakers and research scholars. There are already some ongoing collaborations among the attendees, and new connections are built.  It is expected that all these research collaborations will strengthen through this conference and will open avenues for new research partnerships.

 The well-known scientific publication house, Wiley is going to do a special collection focused on the conference FARC-2024 with the three reputed journals, Chemistry- An Asian Journal, Asian Journal of Organic Chemistry and ChemNanoMat. The renowned speakers and participants of the conference will be invited to publish their notable contribution in the three peer-reviewed scientific journals.  Prof. Chayan Nandi from IIT Mandi and Prof. Rene M. Koenings from RWTH Aachen University have agreed to be the guest editor for the conference collection.
