International Conference on Pure & Applied Mathematics held at KASC

While inaugurating the first of its kind International Conference here today (14.2.2018) on Current Scenario in Pure and Applied Mathematics (ICCSPAM 2018) organized by The PG & Research Department of Mathematics KASC sponsored by Indian Science Congress Association Coimbatore Chapter (ISCA) Dr.C.A.Vasuki stressed on the importance of publicizing Pure Science to the public.

‘Pure Science is slowly losing its glamour not only in India but throughout the world, even the funding agencies do not recognize unless there is Applied Science added to it,’ said Secretary Dr.C.A.Vasuki, KASC.

According to her, most of the applied science today we witness is based on pure science. ‘If a Scientist from a Pure Science stream finds something, it may not be useful immediately, but it may take another decade to use its applications,’ she said.

‘It’s the responsibility of top scientists and professors to talk to the government and increase the funding for pure science people,’ she added.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was also signed between Kongunadu Arts and Science College (KASC) and Uludag University Turkey during the occasion.

On the event, Dr.Haci Mehmet Baskonus, Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics, Munzur University, Tunceli, Turkey and Dr.Ismail Naci Cangul, Professor of Mathematics, Uludag University, Gorukle, Bursa, Turkey graced as Chief Guests.
