Every year , students of Department of Chemistry organize Cognizance (Tech-fest of IIT Roorkee) in the department itself. This year the theme is " for a better tomorrow". So we intend to make the events not only for those pursuing chemistry but also for others, so as to motivate them for taking up chemistry for their future work. Chemistry is a multi-disciplinary subject. It has given rise to various diversifying research areas to work upon unlike any other pure science subject. So we have chosen various topics for presentation in our paper presentation events that bears relevance to other fields too. We have also chosen topics for the Review presentation and poster presentation events such that any one who is in touch with chemistry can participate.

The main attractions in the event are Two guest lectures to be delivered by eminent researchers of our country and the quiz event that would make people wonder how they are using chemistry in daily events.

The event cognizance is going to be held from 11th to 13th March 2011. We invite all. There is something for each and everyone in store. Come and unleash the fun called CHEMISTRY.
