The Annual Session of the Institute, popularly known as the Indian Chemical Engineering Congress (CHEMCON), is the most important event in the calendar of the IIChE. Held every December at one of its centres, the four-day CHEMCON features a host of events, which include memorial lectures, plenary lectures, seminars, symposia, panel discussion, exhibitions, etc. To the Indian chemical engineering fraternity in the country and abroad, CHEMCON offers the most attractive platform, ensuring four days of intensive interface with the best of brains – national and international – in chemical engineering and allied fields.


Three memorial lectures, namely Dr H L Roy Memorial Lecture (the Founder President), Prof N R Kamath Memorial Lecture (a distinguished professor associated with the University Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, and IIT, Mumbai), and C K Murthy Memorial Lecture (an accomplished chemical engineer who passed away prematurely) set the tune of every CHEMCON. These lectures are delivered by the who’s who of academia, elite research establishments and the corporate world in the national and international circuit and they are a veritable treasure trove of knowledge. CHEMCONs are often held in collaboration with premier chemical engineering bodies of the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, etc, who send large delegations, hold joint symposia/seminars and take part in meaningful dialogue.


Lectures by CHEMCON Distinguished Speakers and international symposia are the other prestige events, where one gets access and exposure to the latest happenings in the ever-expanding domain of chemical engineering.

CHEMCON – 2017 will be organized by Haldia Regional Centre of IIChE, jointly with the Department of Chemical Engineering, Haldia Institute of Technology, during 27 – 30th December 2017, on the theme “Versatility of Chemical Engineering in Solving Major Problems of Modern Society”.
