The Kerala Science Congress (KSC) owes its origin to the foresight and initiatives of the visionaries at the helm of affairs of the erstwhile Science, Technology & Environment Committee (STEC) in 1989. The vision was that the scientific temperament and research in Kerala would be stimulated if an annual gathering of researchers and students is arranged. From the modest beginning in 1989, Kerala Science Congress grew to a meaningful mega-gathering of more than 1500 delegates from the science fraternity of the State in the three decades since its inception. KSC brings together young researchers, academicians, technologists and all others interested in science from the State and elsewhere to share the knowledge and research findings on a common platform for the S&T development of the State. The 31st Kerala Science Congress is scheduled during 27-28 January 2019 at Fatima Mata National College, Kollam.
