I am associate professor in organic chemistry working in Institute of Science at Nagpur, India. The “International Conference on Chemistry for Mankind: Innovative Ideas in Life Sciences” ICCM-2011 is being organized by Department of Chemistry, Institute of Science, in association with R.T.M. Nagpur University and S.F.S. College at Nagpur from February 9-11, 2011 under auspices of Indian Society of Chemists and Biologists. 2011 has been proclaimed by the UN as the International Year of Chemistry and there will be celebrations all around the world and the year also commemorates one hundred years of the receipt of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry by Madame Curie.

Onbehalf of organizers of ICCM-2011 and being a Coordinator of this symposium we have announced "Womens' breakfast" which will be held on 11 Feb 2011 at Conference venue, thereby creating a "chemical-hand shake "

The conference provides a common forum for researchers in chemical and biological sciences to build knowledge networks. All our efforts are concentrated on propagating the ideals and theme of the conference throughout the global scientific community and at winning the hearts and minds of researchers which could accomplish IYC 2011 objectives.
