Important Dates

CHEMCON 2023, the 76th Annual Session of the Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers will be organized by Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers Headquarters, Kolkata from December 27 to December 30, 2023 in association with Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, Jais, Jadavpur University and Heritage Institute of Technology.
The theme of CHEMCON-2023 is “Energy Transition: Challenges & Opportunities” Calcutta University.
The World is in the midst of an energy transition to reduce its dependence on fossil-based energy sources. From 18th to 20th century, many complex transitions in energy have been observed that include the shift from firewood to coal, from whale oil to kerosene, and the shift to electricity and crude oil. Further, in 21st century, transition to low-carbon energy sources is expected to be the most challenging one ever, requiring decarbonization of various sectors and minimization of greenhouse gas emissions from a variety of industries of the global economy to mitigate climate change.
The chemical industries will be no different and are transforming as they regulate to the new era of high-priced petroleum and relentless global warming. Chemical Engineers transform societies and the lives of individuals by interdisciplinary collaborations necessary to advance the societal goals of transitioning to a low-carbon energy system ensuring and developing novel and sustainable materials used in fuels, electronics, medical devices, and other products to address today’s most pressing problems, including climate change and global warming.

Memorial Lectures

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),

Shri Dhirubhai Ambani Commemoration Day

Every year, the day of 28 December is observed as Dhirubhai Ambani Commemoration Day on the occasion of his Birth Anniversary of the late Shri Dhirubhai Ambani and the Dhirubhai Ambani Oration on varied topics is delivered by eminent personalities of the country to celebrate the occasion.

Technical & Parallel Sessions

During CHEMCON, several technical and parallel sessions are held. Lecture sessions comprises of Chemcon Distinguished Lectures, invited lectures, and paper/poster presentations.

Joint Symposiums

The aim of the symposium is to exchange knowledge, insights, sharing views amongst each other to discuss and explore future challenges in delivering research results to society and to strengthen research networks.

Industrial Exhibitions

Industrial Exhibitions are usually organized so that organizations in a specific interest or industry can showcase and demonstrate their latest products, service, study activities of competitors and examine recent trends and opportunities.


Each year the IIChE confers a large number of awards and prizes during CHEMCON to honour eminence and contributions in the domain of chemical engineering as well as to nurture young talents.
