It is my pleasure to invite you to the 23rd ICORS meeting to be held from August 12 to 17, 2012, in Bangalore, India. This particular meeting will be celebrated as a Raman homecoming conference, since it will be held at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, the original home of Sir C V Raman where many of Raman’s spectroscopic studies were carried out and also the place where he first headed as an Indian director.
ICORS was last held at Bangalore in 1978 and since that time there have been ICORS meetings in Africa (1998), Europe (2002), Australia(2004), Asia (2006), Europe (2008) and USA (2010). The meeting now returns to Bangalore after almost three decades and it is an honour to welcome you all back to the home of Raman spectroscopy.
Bangalore is a vibrant city and is widely regarded as the technology and education hub of India. Its cosmopolitan character is reflected both in the many international research and development laboratories that are to be found here and in the diversity and richness of its cultural life. A new international airport located 30 km from the Indian Institute of Science provides convenient access to Bangalore from almost anywhere in the world. The city is also well connected to other parts of India by rail and road, so it should be possible for everyone attending the conference to include some tourism in their professional itinerary.
