The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Gandhinagar is organizing a Seminar Series on Indian Scientists on August 21, 2021.
Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar is a public engineering institution located in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India. It has been declared to be an Institute of National Importance by the Government of India.
In the first half of the 20th century, there was a great renaissance of modern scientific thinking in India. The father figures of modern Indian Science from this era contributed significantly to contemporary scientific advances. At the same time, they motivated and led the national movement to create scientific institutions in India. This Seminar Series on Indian Scientists aims to honour the contributions of these often half-forgotten pioneers.
In this fourth (online) edition of the seminar series, eminent scholars will deliver lectures on the life and works of Sálim Moizuddin Abdul Ali and Amal Kumar Raychaudhuri.
Students & Faculty members from all institutions are invited. Please note: For non-IIT Gandhinagar participants, registration is free but mandatory.
