Alumni Reception at This Year’s NMD-ATM

NMD-ATM, the flagship event of the Indian Institute of Metals, will be held in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, during 13-16 November 2015.

As we did last year (and the year before last), we are organizing an Alumni Reception during NMD-ATM this year as well. This subscription event is scheduled for the evening of Sunday, the 15th of November, 2015 [Please note the change from the date announced earlier].

This is a call to all our alumni participants at NMD-ATM 2015 to join us at the Reception.

If you are planning to attend, please send a mail to alumnus[at] giving us the following details. In order to enable us to get a good handle on the numbers, we request you to write to us well before the deadline of the 30th of October, 2015 :

  1. Name
  2. IISc Degree(s) and year(s)
  3. Mobile / phone number
  4. Current official address

The subscription for the reception is fixed at Rs. 3,000/- (the payment details will appear on this page soon); any surplus will be donated to the Prof. K.P. Abraham Memorial Fund, for which a fund-raising drive is already underway. So, larger contributions than Rs. 3,000/- are certainly welcome!

We are doing everything we can to reach out to all the alumni whose contact details are available with us. We seek your help in spreading the word about the Reception among your fellow alumni.

See you all in Coimbatore!
