Science   and   Technology   (S&T)   are   key   drivers   to   development   in   the   present   globalised   knowledge   -   driven   economy. Modernisation   in   every   aspect   of   life   is   the   greatest   example   of   implementation   of   S&T   in   every   nation.   With   the   introduction of   modern   gadgets   in   most   of   the   spheres,   life   has   become   simple   and   this   has   been   possible   mainly   due   to   implementation of scientific and technological advancements.  Without   advancements   of   S&T   in   different   sectors   such   as   agriculture,   medicine,   electronics   &   communications,   computing   & data   science,   ICT,   space   technology,   nanotechnology,   robotics   or   any   other   field,   it   would   not   have   been   possible   for   the humanity   to   harness   their   benefits   for   better   living.   In   view   of   this,   it   is   well   recognized   now   that   there   is   a   distinct   relationship between   the   S&T   capability   and   economic well-being   of   a   nation.   S&T   are   being   increasingly   recognised   as   the   foundation   for sustainable   development   as   well   as   the   best   hope   for   a   better   future   for   humanity,   as   they   have   much   to   offer   in   finding suitable solutions for many of the present and future challenges. Considering   this,   KSTA   in   association   with   REVA   University   is   organizing   Tenth   Annual   KSTA   Conference   on   “Science   and Technology   for   Future   of   Humanity”   during      January   18-19,   2018   (Thursday   &   Friday)   in   Bengaluru   to   create   an   awareness   on innovative    research    and    development    by    organising    distinguished    lectures    from    eminent    scientists    and    renowned technocrats. KSTA   conferences,   over   the   years,   have   been   providing   a   unique   platform   for   students,   research   scholars,   academicians, officials   and   scientific   community   from   diverse   disciplines   to   deliberate   on   two-way   commitment   of   science   to   society   and society   to   science.   In   addition,   young   researchers   will   have   an   opportunity   to   present   their   ideas   and   research   outcomes   in the form of posters.
To   bring   awareness   on   the   developments   in   science   and technology   for   human   welfare   among   different   sections   of the society To      create      interest      in      scientific      and      technological developments    as    well    as    to    broaden    the    horizon    of knowledge among students To    foster    understanding    of    scientific    developments    and advancements for future of humanity
