Science   and Technology   (S&T)   are   key   drivers   of   development   in   the   present   globalised   economy. The   progress   in the   field   of   S&T   has   brought   unparalleled   prosperity   and wealth   to   a   significant   fraction   of   the world's   population. Many   new   technologies   have   been   created,   which   have   changed   everything   about   the   way   we   live,   connect, communicate    and    transact,   while    enhancing    human    health    and    lifespan.   These    developments    have    made    a phenomenal   impact   in   shaping   the   life   of   common   man   as   well   as   profound   effects   on   economic   development   of countries   around   the world.   Further,   in   order   to   derive   maximum   output   from   finite   natural   resources,   S&T   must   be brought into the planning process. S&T   revolution   of   the   21st   century   is   based   on   new   and   emerging   sectors   such   as   micro-processor,   ICT,   digital technology,   biotechnology,   nanotechnology   etc.   These   frontier   technologies   continue   to   carve   out   their   niches   in the   general   field   of   S&T.   One   such   emerging   field   is   nanotechnology,   which   has   been   creating   waves   across   the sectors.   The   enabling   nature   and   ability   to   develop   along   with   existing   technologies   makes   this   latest   sunrise technology, a more versatile tool to address many key developmental challenges in diverse fields. Similarly,   digital   technology   presents   a   unique   opportunity   to   address   the   systemic   issues   that   are   affecting   social sector.   Big   data,   smart   mobile   technology   and   connected   devices   are   combining   to   allow   people   to   build   new types   of   smart   digital   services   capable   of   constantly   evolving   and   learning   based   on   individual   preferences   and environments. Further, data science translates data into insight and intelligence for decision making. Biotechnology   applications   help   to   develop   crops   that   withstand   climate   change   challenges   as   well   as   combat malnutrition   through   production   of   more   nutritious   food.   Further,   smart   farming   technology   is   expected   to   reduce farming cost considerably and also maximize yields to meet the food security needs of people around the world. In    addition,    space    science    and    technology    is    helping    to    achieve    sustainable    development    and    increasing wellbeing   of   people   around   the   world,   while   ensuring   the   realisation   of   aspirations   of   humanity   to   maintain necessary   to   ensure   that   the   advancements   in   S&T   s&   T   could   be   utilised   successfully   for   common   good   of   outer space   for   peaceful   purposes.   In   view   of   this,   it   is   necessary   to   ensure   that   the   advancements   in   S&T   percolate   to the gross root levels so that the new vistas of S&T could be utilised successfully for common good of humanity. To   add   to   this,   Bengaluru   is   one   among   the   top   twenty   influential   cities   in   start-up   ecosystems   in   the   globe.   The city   is   also   endowed   with   several   leading   research   establishments   like   IISc,   RRI,   JNCASR,   ISRO,   IIA,   NAL   and   so   on. Considering   this,   Karnataka   Science   and   Technology   Academy   (KSTA)   in   association   with   NMKRV   College   for Women   is   organizing   Eleventh   Annual   KSTA   Conference   on   "New   Vistas   in   Science   and   Technology   for   Common good"   during   February   1-2,   2019   (Friday   &   Saturday)   in   Bengaluru   to   create   awareness   on   innovative   research   and development   that   are   being   carried   out   by   young   researchers   in   various   institutions.   Distinguished   lectures   by eminent   scientists   and   scholars   on   various   science   and   technological   development   are   being   organized   during this conference.
