CERN DG to attend Frontiers of Science meet in Kolkata

Named "Frontiers of Science 2012", the conference will host some of the most important minds of global science, including the CERN delegation, and 'FAIR' (Facility for Anti Proton Ion Research), Germany, the European centre for Nuclear Research, Geneva.

Eminent nuclear scientist Bikash Sinha, Homi Bhabha professor, department of Atomic energy, will chair the conference which will aim at seeking answers to "how, with its global role in science and technology, the Indian scientific and industrial community should respond to present-day challenges".

Kolkata as the conference venue is significant because India has recently become an associate member of CERN, according to organiser Centre for natural sciences and philosophy and the Critical issues Forum, Kolkata.

The CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) delegation will include Rudiger Voss, Anders Unnervik, heading procurement and industrial services, Frederick Bodry and Sudeshna Datta-Cockerill.

FAIR, Germany, will be represented by its technical director Hans Dieter Kraemer who will speak on FAIR's Indian collaboration and examine the scope for Indian industry's involvement with science.

Nuclear research apart, the other important area of focus will be biotechnology, which too is driven by research and manifest in a wide range of applications at the cutting edge, organisers said here today.
