I had a wonderful experience during APM2010 and hats on for the planning execution and the event is memorable one. The delibrations are very useful for our further buildup and i congradulate and thank you and your team for the same. The paper of my invited talk has been sent to you but unfortunately it is not included in the proceedings but they have added the abstract of my talk. I once again thank you all for the useful APM2010 and hope to join for the APM2011.


Many thanks for your kind mail. In fact, I was already planning to write you on this matter. I am really amazed after attending this conference. The way the conference was organized by the CIPET family by inviting the peers in the field, managing the sessions and the overall hospitality was excellent. I rate that APM 2010 is one of the best conference ever I attended and believe that LARMP is totally competent to organize this type International conference in future. I and my research group will love to attend and collaborate with your esteemed institution.

I am really astonished the type of processing and characterization facility under the same roof has been created at CIPET/ LARMP by your able leadership. I am sure that the organization will flourish as one the most leading polymer research institute in this globe.

Definitely, this conference will help me to frame an active collaboration with some the International invitees. I assured you to have more active collaboration of my research group in your planned future event “The 2nd International Conference on Advancement of Polymeric materials during January 22-24, 2011”.

If you allow us we would like to a make short visit (date/time to be decided) for our M.Tech. and Ph. D. students, so that they can see the excellent polymer processing and research facility that have been created in CIPET/LARMP Bhubaneswar.


I congratulate you and your esteemed colleagues for the remarkable event : APM-2010. It was really amaging.

I wish you the best carreer in the span of your brilliant life span.

I pray lord jaganath for your more, and more achievements.


Thank you so much for inviting me to LARPM. I was really impressed by the capabilities and more importantly the energy and excitement among the students and faculty as well as your amazing leadership of this great institution. I would be delighted to continue to be involved with CIPET/LARPM and greatly look forward to several exciting collaborations. I have talked to both the secretary and joint secretary about several ideas we could partner in and also about how much CIPET can play a central role in solving some of the important challenges for India. There are several avenues including, The US-India Frontiers of Engineering, World Bank, National Science Foundation(NSF), and also possibly via NSF-DST combined funding programs. We have to plan on how we could move forward with this initial momentum about raising funding to look at these challenges together. I have mentioned about CIPET/LARPM to my dept head Prof. Mary Boyce and have got her excited about this.

Once again my heart-felt thanks for everything. Please convey my regards to everyone. I greatly look forward to future collaborations.


Thank you Sir. I am really very happy to attend your conference and enjoyed it. It was wonderful and had an excellent touch to the heart. In view of this, I take an opportunity to extend a vote of sincere thanks to you and to all of your colleagues on behalf of all delegates and participants for organizing such a mega event under your expert and cordial guidance. I also felt that the entire CIPET family whole heartedly cooperated to bring it to excellent success. Once again I thank you Sir for remembering me.


I express my special thanks for inviting for invited talk. I am very happy with your hospitablity and arrangement made during APM-2010. Your employees and students all are very pollite in language and helpful. The confernce under your leadership was very nice. I will be happy if you remind once again for an invited talk in second APM at any of your CIPET centre.
