HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh Akademi of Sciences (APAS) on Monday announced that the Golden Jubilee Science Congress will be held in the city from November 13-15.

The three-day event will commemorate 50 years of the Akademi and will be organised in association with CSIR-IICT. The theme of the event will be ‘Indian Science and Technology: 50 Years of Soujourn’.

Terming the conference as historic, president of APAS and director of CSIR-IICT Ch Mohan Rao said the meeting will be last as part of united Andhra Pradesh and soon there will be two separate Akademis -- Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

“The focus of the meeting will be on Indian science and technology. We will discuss how science has progressed over the last five decades and the critical issues pertaining to all major areas of science,” Rao said.

Researchers from different universities, national laboratories and the industry will participate in the meet, which will also include lectures from accomplished personalities. Special sessions on sustainable agriculture, national nutrition, pharmaceutical development and minerals will also be held during the three-day conference.

A special event will be held at the conference to encourage school children to take up science and facilitate their interaction with renowned scientists. “We are trying to tap talents of class VIII, IX and X students. We feel this is the right age for them and we would like to bring as many children as possible to science,” Rao explained.
