International conference on Physics for sustainable development and Technology

( December 18 -19, 2019 )

Keynote Speakers

Prof. Dr. Wayne K. Hiebert

National Research Council of Canada and University of Albertam AB



Wayne Hiebert is a senior researcher at the national research council of Canada (NRC) where he has been employed since 2003 at the nanotechnology research centre (formerly the national institute for nanotechnology).  He holds an adjunct appointment with the university of Alberta department of physics and has been active in the field of NEMS since 2003.  He obtained his BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees from University of Alberta department of Physics in 1995, 1998, and 2001, respectively.  He was a postdoctoral fellow at inter-university microelectronics centre in Belgium (to 2003) and the California institute of technology in the United States (to 2006).  At his NRC institute, he has held roles of group leader, program coordinator, and transition leader.  He is active in societies of Canadian association of physics and American vacuum society.


Prof. Dr. Susanta Lahiri

Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP)



Professor Susanta Lahiri is highly visible radiochemist of international fame. Professor Lahiri received the pioneering international honour in the field of Nuclear and Radiochemistry, the Hevesy Medal Award in 2015. Earlier he received the prestigious associateship of Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) twice. He made pioneering contribution in heavy ion assisted production of clinically important radionuclides. However, his interest has been diversified in the areas of environmental radioactivity, green chemistry, cosmochemical analysis, bioaccumulation studies, speciation studies, as well as trace analysis using both nuclear and non-nuclear techniques. His interest also includes converter target chemistry bombarded with 1.4 GeV proton beam. Currently he is working as Senior Professor at Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata, India.

He has more than 238 publications in international peer reviewed journal and 300 reports in international and national conference. He has guided 13 Ph. D students. Professor Lahiri is the editorial board member of JRNC and editorial advisory board of Radiochimica Acta


Prof. Dr. A. A. Mamun

Jahangirnagar University,



Dr. A A Mamun is a Professor of Physics of Jahangirnagar University. He received his Ph.D. degree in plasma physics from the University of St. Andrews (UK). He has made a substantial contribution towards the published literature of theoretical plasma physics. He has published over 400 research articles in foreign international journals. He also wrote a textbook on introductory dusty plasma physics (published by the Institute of Physics, London), which is being used by many universities in many western countries like USA, UK, Germany, etc.  To note the quality of his research works, it may be pointed out that the total citations of his research works already exceeded 12,000 with h-index 49 and i10-index 212 (for details, please visit the Google Scholar Website:  Prof. Mamun was awarded a number of very prestigious post-doctoral fellowships and national/international awards for his outstanding/pioneering contribution in complex plasma physics. The most important fellowships are Alexander von Humboldt (AvH) Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship (Germany); Commonwealth Post-doctoral Research Fellowship (UK); Max Planck Research Fellowship (Germany); etc. The most important awards are Bessel Research Award-2009 by the AvH foundation (Germany); TWAS Young Scientist Prize-2006 in physics by the Third World Academy of Science (TWAS), Trieste, Italy; BAS Gold Medal-2004 in Physical Sciences (Junior Group); BAS Gold Medal-2011 in Physical Sciences (Senior Group); Best Young Physicist Prize-2000 by the ITCPP (Trieste, Italy), etc. It should be mentioned here that until now Prof. Mamun is the first Bangladeshi scientist who got the Bessel Research Prize (representing the amount of Euro 45,000.00 and an opportunity to undertake a prolonged periods of research in Germany).
