SCHEMCON, Students' Chemical Engineering Congress, is an annual event organized by the Students' Chapter of India Institute of Chemical Engineers (IIChE) under one of its Regional Centres. It provides a platform for the Chemical Engineering students to interact, learn and gain exposure to the expanding arena of Chemical Engineering. SCHEMCON 2014 is the 10th Annual Session of this mega event. It is being organized jointly by the IIChE Students' Chapter at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Haldia Institute of Technology and the Haldia Regional Centre (HRC), IIChE. The theme for this annual session is "New Horizon in Chemical Engineering Applications". We hope that the event will create enough interest among the young delegates to explore newer areas of Chemical Engineering.
