Encouraging Interdisciplinary Collaboration Among Indian Scientists

The annual event “Kaleidoscope: A Discussion Meeting in Chemistry” is turning six years old in July 2019. This invitation-only meeting brings young investigators from diverse areas of chemistry together to share their ideas, encouraging productive collaborations in interdisciplinary sciences.

All the participants are typically speakers, as the meeting is designed around 15-minute oral presentations. Speakers convey their research and take questions from fellow attendees. This scientific discussion then continues over poster sessions. During the two-and-a-half-day event, speakers hold poster sessions in smaller groups designed to spur new ideas and collaboration.

The Editors of ACS Omega are pleased to share high-quality science published by several participants of the meeting. ACS Omega is an open-access global publication whose mission is to publish scientific articles that describe “new findings in chemistry and interfacing areas of science, without any perceived evaluation of immediate impact.” Articles in ACS Omega should advance the frontiers of science through original ideas, even if the full significance is not known. Being open access, ACS Omega disseminates this knowledge globally and quickly, and therefore papers published in ACS Omega are available to a much wider readership that includes industry, policy institutions, the media, and the public, in addition to the traditional academic sector.
