ISCA - COIMBATORE CHAPTER

The Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA) owes its origin to the foresight and initiative of two British Chemists, Professor J.L. Simonsen and Professor P.S. MacMahon. It occurred to them that scientific research in India might be stimulated if an annual meeting of research workers somewhat on the lines of the British Association for the Advancement of Science could be arranged. To achieve this goal, regional chapters for ISCA have been established. Thus at the initiative of Dr. M. Aruchami, then Secretary and Director of Kongunadu Arts and Science College, the Coimbatore Chapter was started in the year, 2008 and he was appointed as Convener of this Chapter. It was inaugurated by His Excellency, Hon’ble Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Former President of India on 03.05.2008 in Kongunadu Arts and Science College premises. Coimbatore Chapter of ISCA takes efforts to popularize science and foster a scientific temperament among the scientists and researchers by involving them in a series of workshops /seminars /conferences /lectures organized every year, since its inception. The Coimbatore Chapter has been selected as one among the three chapters all over the nation for ISCA Centenary Celebrations in the year, 2012. Under this credit, the chapter successfully organized and conducted the Southern Regional Science Conference on ‘Science for Shaping the Future of India’ on 15th and 16th December 2012 which was held in the premises of Kongunadu Arts and Science College, Coimbatore in a grand manner. Most eminent scientists and scholars took part in the deliberations of the conference. ISCA, Coimbatore Chapter continues its journey in bridging the gap between science and the common man.
