105th Indian Science Congress 2018 indefinitely postponed:
The 105th Indian Science Congress, which was to be held at Osmania University in Hyderabad from January 3rd to 7th, has been ‘indefinitely postponed’. The university cited ‘security concerns’ as the reason for its inability to conduct Congress.
The Vice-Chancellor of Osmania University has informed the Indian science Congress association that they are not in a position to host the Congress due to certain issues. Recently, massive protests had erupted on campus after a student committed suicide. The student unions and opposition alleged the suicide was due to the rising problem of unemployment in the state of Telangana.
The move came as a surprise, as the University officials, for the last three months, were making preparations for the event. The University had even changed the examination schedule for the event. The University was even willing to allow inaugural programme outside the campus and other sessions on campus even if it meant more expenditure.
The ISC is traditionally the first public function the Prime Minister addresses at the beginning of each year. Last year, the event was held at the Sri Venkateswara University in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. This year 20 Nobel laureates, along with top scientists and academicians from across the world, were to attend the event. An emergency meeting of the executive council of ISCA has been called on December 27 to discuss the next course of action.

The registration and accommodation fees submitted to the Osmania University, Hyderabad will be refunded by the Osmania University directly to the persons concerned,” the notice added.
On Thursday, December 21, the ISCA through a public notice in its website had informed that the Vice-Chancellor of Osmania University had sent an e-mail saying that OU was not in a position to host the 105th Indian Science Congress between January 3 and 7, 2018 due to certain issues in the campus. Following the communication, the ISCA had decided to postpone the event and hold an Emergency Executive Committee to hammer out a new date and venue.
PRESS RELEASE – OSMANIA UNIVERSITY -December 21, 2017::
The Indian Science Congress Association has indefinitely postponed the conduct of the 105th Indian Science Congress in the University scheduled to be held from 3-7 January 2018.
The University in all its earnestness was fully prepared to conduct the event. Several committees worked for the past three months tirelessly to ensure smooth conduct of the event. In fact, the University changed the examination schedule for this purpose.
At one point in time, the University was flexible and was willing to have the inaugural outside the campus and the remaining sessions on the campus even if it meant incurring more expenditure and inconvenience.
Osmania University in its Centenary year is state-run and is committed to the advancement of knowledge in diverse spheres including science, which has the potential to solve problems facing the society. Our core mission is to serve the public good.
In order to fulfil that task and generate solutions that have an impact, we often work with the diverse organization, segments of society that have a stake in its welfare — government, academe, philanthropies, civic leaders, and the private sector.
Given our overarching goal of bolstering science and technology education, we are all the more conscious of our obligation to improve our research including the collaborations with leading organisations. It is in this spirit, we wholeheartedly welcomed the engagement with the ISCA, and thought it fit to conduct the 105thISC to give a fillip to research and have an interface with the scientific community.
The University hopes that the Congress would be held in the near future after holding further discussions with the Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA). ISC 105th Indian Science Congress Program Schedule.
