Following the remarkable success of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd edition of the international conference on RECENT ADVANCES IN FUNDAMENTAL AND APPLIED SCIENCES (RAFAS) in November 2016, November 2019 and June 2021, the School of Chemical Engineering & Physical Sciences is delighted to announce the 4th edition of RAFAS in March 2023 to spur the exchange of knowledge and ideas in the field of science and technology. The conference will be a convergence of scientists, research investigators, students, and other professionals from diverse backgrounds who will deliberate upon various current issues related to different branches of sciences and technology. The conference aims to provide a platform to present the current research and latest technologies being adopted that address local and international scientific challenges. RAFAS 2023 will offer an ideal environment for young researchers as well as practitioners to promote discourses regarding new advances in every facet of science and technology. The focus of the conference will be on various research fields of basic sciences (viz. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics), Chemical Engineering and Petroleum Engineering. On similar lines to that of the previous editions of RAFAS, the current edition (in online mode) will also provide a perfect platform to build productive coordination between the academia and the industry, which is very much the need of the hour. So, you are hereby cordially invited to participate and share your innovative ideas during RAFAS-2023.
The scientific community witnessed in LPU the two mega international science conferences on “Recent Advances in Fundamental and Applied Sciences” (RAFAS-2016 and RAFAS-2019), wherein scientists, industry experts, and notable professionals across the globe exchanged their experiences and learnings. More than 800 delegates from all over the world participated in these conferences and a volume of quality research on topics spanning the disciplines of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering were presented both as oral and poster presentations. A notable number of high-quality research papers from each discipline, that were recognized and peer reviewed, were published in Scopus indexed journals of high repute.
