Conference Overview
The 1st National Conference on Current Trends In Particles Physics (CTPPR-2014), will be organized at Department of Physics, University of Kalyani, Kalyani, Nadia, West Bengal during March 13 to 15, 2014. The CTPPR aims to create a platform for budding researchers in theoretical physics especially high energy physics to interact and network with eminent scientists in this field. The Conference will cover invited talks by leading experts, poster/oral presentation of contributed papers by promising researchers. The Conference organizing committee cordially invites all the scientists and students engaged in research in the broad areas of theoretical physics and related fields to participate in the auspicious event.
The conference is being organized at University of Kalyani. The University of Kalyani is one of India's premier academic and research institutions that has always driven new ways of thinking from its foundation in 1960. Although this university has a large rural base but the University’s work does not stop at the campus boundaries. Today when India represents the second largest system of higher education in the world the University of Kalyani with its regional specificities is playing a very important role by empowering individuals with varied backgrounds to challenge conventional thinking in pursuit of original ideas. The University is only 51 Km way from the capital of West Bengal, Kolkata.
