Conference on Advances in Catalysis
for Energy and Environment

(CACEE-2018)

January 10-12, 2018

Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai
Welcome to CACEE 2018

(International Conference)


Energy and environment are two of our critical challenges. These challenges are becoming the main concerns of the global vision of the societal challenges and world economy. Nanomaterails and Catalysts are essential for the modern society as they can resolve these critical challenges. Nanomaterials and Nanocatalysis is no longer just a field of academic curiosity but an emerging field for industries to develop green and sustainable processes.

This conference aims to bring together scientists working in the emerging areas of nanomaterials and catalysis for energy and environment. The conference will provide the much needed platform for exchange of ideas and develop collaboration among scientists in the field. This will be the first conference of this kind in this part of the world to be organized by TIFR, and hopes to bring together active researchers in the area to provide the impetus needed to this vibrant field of research by interfacing different branches of science in one platform.

Conference will have invited talks and poster presentations. This will be the first conference in the series, and we plan to organize conferences/workshops on this theme regularly at various venues.

    Reaching TIFR
    "If you are coming from airport: TIFR is at the southern end of Mumbai. It is about 25 km from the domestic airport and 30 km from the international airport. Prepaid taxis are available from the airports. One can also use cabs like Meru, Tab, etc. Their booths are inside the terminal. Ola is also available via app booking. On the way from the airport to TIFR, one can take the sea-link between Bandra and Worli to avoid some traffic. Ask the driver to do so, for this you will have to pay a toll of ~ Rs. 65 which is not covered in the pre-paid fare. For directions to TIFR, ask for Navy Nagar, Colaba, and TIFR is at the of the road after the bus stop terminus in Navy Nagar"

    "If you are coming from train staion: Two railway stations, CST (Victoria Terminus, VT) or Church Gate is about 5 km away. Take a taxi from there (no autos are allowed in this area) and ask driver for Navy Nagar, Colaba, and TIFR is at the of the road after the bus stop terminus in Navy Nagar"
