WHAT THIS WORKSHOP IS ALL ABOUT

Where The Experts Meet

The International Workshop on Nano/Micro 2D & 3D fabrication and manufacturing of Electronic & Biomedical Devices and Applications (IWNEBD-2018) will be held during 31st October to 2nd November 2018 at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Mandi, Kamand Campus, Mandi-175005 (Himachal Pradesh), India. IWNEBD-2018 is an excellent opportunity to network and develop research collaboration with renowned National and International Scientists/Engineers with vast experience in cutting-edge research and manufacturing. We are sure that you will enjoy your stay with the great climate of Shivalik Range of the Himalayas, away from the bustle of the metropolis, and of course the excellent hospitality, and rich Indian culture. Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Mandi is located amidst well-known places – Kullu, Manali, Rothang, Shimla, and Dharamsala. These places can be reached within few hours by road.

On the banks of early parts of the Uhl river, Barot is a relatively less explored, niche and a great backpacker and day-tour destination, about 68 km away from IIT Mandi Kamand campus. Many walking and trekking trails pass through Barot. It is among the hidden treasures of Himachal because of which not much people know about it. The place is situated in valley sorrounded by thick deodar and oak forest. The sweet silence of the woods here engross the visitors.

MANALI

Manali is a high-altitude Himalayan resort town in India’s northern Himachal Pradesh state. It has a reputation as a backpacking center and honeymoon destination. Set on the Beas River, it’s a gateway for skiing in the Solang Valley and trekking in Parvati Valley. It’s also a jumping-off point for paragliding, rafting and mountaineering in the Pir Panjal mountains, home to 4,000m-high Rohtang Pass.

KULLU Valley

Kullu Valley is a broad open valley in Himachal Pradesh, India, formed by the Beas River between Manali and Largi. This valley is famous for its temples, beauty and its majestic hills covered with pine and deodar forest and sprawling apple orchards.

Rewalsar

Rewalsar Lake is place of spiritual importance, situated at 44 km from IIT Mandi Kamand campus. There is a Buddhist monastry and some Buddhist temples in Rewalsar, on hills sorrounding the lake. These are visited by several Buddhists, especially on the Tibetan New Year, thus making Rewalsar into a mini Buddhist colony. About 10 km from Rewalsar is situated the temple of Naina Devi, the approach to which is loaded with scenic views of the sorrounding hills and smaller lakes.
