The 94th session of Indian Science Congress is set to take place at Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar, Chidambaram dist, Tamil Nadu from Jan 3-7 2007. The theme of the congress is “Planet Earth”, inspired by the International Year of Planet Earth – Earth Science for the Society.
As usual the congress is organized by the Indian Science Congress Association. Program highlights include, innaugration by the Prime Minister, and address by the President of India.
There will also be a Children’s Science Congress and a Scinece Exhibition( also known as Pride of India Exhibition).
A little clarification is needed on the venue front- originally the science congress was set to take place at the Amity Univ at Noida. Midway, they decided to host it at Annamalai University in Tamilnadu. Information in the website is sparse and the website itself is a simple image dump of the printed brochure.
I’m planning to attend the Pride of India Exhibition like last year and the exhibition organizer is yet to list the event in their website.
Interestingly, there are tour packages to Navagragha Temple( Temples dedicated to Demi gods representing the planets) offered as part of the Science Congress official tour! You figure out how it fits or missfits with the theme :)
