Preamble Development of communication and analytical skills as wellas exchange of ideas and interaction among research scholars are an integral part of training in the research programme of every institute. The present symposium, International Symposium for Research Scholars on Metallurgy, Materials Science & Engineering(ISRS-2016) is devoted solely to research scholars so that they can interact with their peers from all over the world and exchange research ideas, which can help in improving their quality of research, analytical and presentation skills. ISRS-2016 aims at achieving these objectives and provides a unique forum for research scholars from all over the world to broaden their perspective by increasing their awareness of diverse areas of research worldwide. The first session of ISRS-2016 will be focused on the theme of Surface Engineering. The pre-requisite for participation in ISRS-2016 is that the participant should be currently pursuing a research-based degree. Keynote lectures by experts will be an added attraction of ISRS-2016. These will inspire the research scholars with an exposure to a variety of topics and provide opportunity for discussions with stalwarts in materials research. The Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (MME), IIT Madras in association with IIM Chennai chapter, has been organizing the biennial symposia, National Symposium for Research Scholars (NSRS) on Materials Science and Engineering since1996. In 2004, it has been elevated to International Symposium for Research Scholars (ISRS). This year’s symposium, ISRS-2016 is the 7th in the series of international symposia, and we earnestly hope that it will be a great success in bringing more research scholars together. Research scholars, including scientists from various laboratories and industries, pursuing their Doctoral/ Master’s Degree (Research) are invited to present their original work and participate in ISRS-2016, a threeday event in the academic and serene environs of IIT Madras.
IIT Madras is committed to providing a world class education to its students and ISRS-2016 serves the educational experience of research scholars by providing them with a world class, international forum to exchange and enhance their research ideas.
