About Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee

Indian Institute of Technology – Roorkee is among the foremost of institutes of national importance in higher technological education and in engineering, basic and applied research. Since its establishment (in 1847), the Institute has played a vital role in providing the technical manpower and know-how to the country and in pursuit of research. The Institute ranks amongst the best technological institutions in the world and has contributed to all sectors of technological development. It has also been considered a trend-setter in the area of education and research in the field of science, technology, and engineering. Indian Institute of Technology – Roorkee, formerly University of Roorkee and Thomson College of Civil Engineering, is a public engineering university located in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India. Established in 1847 in British India by the lieutenant governor, Sir James Thomason, it was given university status in 1949 and was converted into an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in 2001, thus becoming the seventh IIT to be declared. IIT Roorkee has 21 academic departments covering Engineering, Applied Sciences, Humanities & Social Science and Management Programs with a strong emphasis on science and technology education and research.

About Physics Department

The Department of Physics from it’s inception in 1960 has grown into an active centre of quality teaching and research. Today it stands as one of the leading departments in the country, well known for its excellence in teaching and research. The Department runs five year integrated M.Sc. (Physics), two year M.Sc. (Physics), M. Tech. (Solid State Electronic Materials), M.Tech. (Photonics) and 4 year B.Tech. in engineering Physics. Apart from catering the teaching of core Physics courses to undergraduate engineering students, the faculties of the Department are actively engaged in different areas of research viz. Atmospheric and Space Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Nuclear Physics, Optics and Theoretical High Energy Physics. The research activity in the department is well recognized by CSIR, AICTE, DST, DAE, ISRO, DRDO and many more agencies, and a number of research projects funded by national and international agencies are in progress in the department.

About IMESD 2018

IMESD-2018 is a debut event in this international meeting series, which is expected to be a milestone event in our country for communities working in the field of energy storage devices as we are expecting about 300 participants from India and abroad. Submitted papers are expected to be published in a peer-reviewed international journal. The aim of this meeting is to bring together eminent national & international scientists, academicians, research scholars, students from universities, research institutes, engineers and technocrats from industries on a single platform to share their knowledge, expertise, research and experience in the emerging area of energy storage devices. Further, the meeting is expected to provide opportunities for the researchers to find international collaborators for future teamwork.
