SCHEMCON stands for Students' CHEMCON. It is an annual event organized by the students' chapter of Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers. A Students' CHEMCON (SCHEMCON) acts as a source of encouragement and self-confidence for young minds, which are considered as the most fertile ground for generation of original and creative ideas. The first ever Students' CHEMCON was organised during 7 to 9 December 2005 at IIT Guwahati jointly by the Student Chapters at IIT Guwahati and Assam Engg College, both newly formed. The response received from the students of chemical engineering in general to participate in this programme had been phenomenal.The success of SCHEMCON 2005 has encouraged IIChE to continue with the programmes of SCHEMCON. SCHEMCON'12 is the eighth edition of this mega-event. It is being organized by the BITS Pilani students' chapter of Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers. The event will be held at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani (Rajasthan). There will be active participation from the students of UG, PG and research backgrounds of chemical engineering.
The theme for SCHEMCON 2012 is "Energy Efficient Technologies for Green Environment!"
