It gives me immense pleasure to know that this year ASICON is being organized by Odisha state chapter of ASI in a historic city of Bhubaneswar. The format of the conference is also modified to suit the needs of the members of ASI.
The conference is organized by a very vibrant committee led by Dr C R Das & Dr Sreejoy Patnaik. I am sure that the scientific program shall be of high standard & meet the expectations of the delegates. Odisha is known for its culture & heritage. Organizing committee shall show case the glimpses of this during their cultural programs in this conference.
This ASICON shall be a great opportunity to all of us to have academics as well as cultural bonanza added with the hospitality & fellowship. I appeal to all members to attend the conference in large numbers & wish the organizing committee a grand success.
