We are pleased to inform you that PG and Research Department of Physics, National College, Tiruchirappalli is organizing 21st National Seminar on Crystal Growth and Applications (NSCGA-2017) during 6-8 March 2017 in association with Indian Association for Crystal Growth (IACG).

IACG has successfully organized TWENTY Crystal Growth seminars, many of them with International Participation. All major Indian Crystal Growth laboratories and research institutions participate in the National Seminar on Crystal Growth (NSCG). NSCG is held in different cities as annual event. Last year it was organized at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai during 19-21st January 2016. This year it is being organized at National College, Tiruchirappalli.

The 21st NSCGA-2017 will provide a platform for the research community in Crystal Growth and characterizations to meet, discuss and share the latest advances in these fields. Three days of togetherness will develop a strong and healthy support between the experts in the field of Crystal Growth. Many novel and innovative ideas to reform the field of Crystal Growth and its applications and related areas, will be evolved through the discussions and sharing between the distinguished professors and renowned scientists from the different parts of the country. Interaction with the eminent personalities will be a great motivation to the research scholars who participated in the conference. Discussions on student exchange programme with reputed institutions will be initiated.

The scientific deliberations will be in the form of Invited Talks (IT), Oral and Poster presentations. Accepted contributory papers will be presented as posters and a few will be selected for the oral presentation.
