Indian Institute of Science - Bangalore

5th International Conference on Computational Methods for Thermal Problems, ThermaComp 2018, J. N. Tata Auditorium, IISc Bangalore, INDIA, July 9-11, 2018

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was started in 1909 through the pioneering vision of J.N.  Tata. Since then, it has grown into a premier institution of research and  education, with more than 2000 active researchers working in almost all the frontier areas of science and technology. It is one of the oldest and finest centres of its kind in India, and has a high international standing in the academic world as well.  IISc is renowned for its academic freedom, focus on research excellence, and the high quality of its faculty and students. 
At a broad level, it operates in a manner similar to that of premier international research schools, with both faculty hiring and promotions based on rigorous assessments from leading international experts in the area. Similarly, student selection is based on highly-competitive examinations (such as GATE or CSIR or UGC) and/or detailed technical interviews.
At present, the Institute has over 40 major departments and centres, organized in 6 different Divisions: Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Electrical Sciences, Interdisciplinary Research, Mechanical Sciences, and Physical & Mathematical Sciences. The co-existence of various departments on the same campus gives a unique opportunity to researchers to participate in research within as well as across various disciplines.
