held on 1st and 2nd July,2021

About IRCUWU2021

Being the pioneer Entrepreneurial as well as Technopreneurial University in Sri Lanka, UWU has generated an exemplary studious milieu for the nation inspired by the unique theme, "Value addition to the national resources base". UWU continues to produce well-rounded graduates capable of contributing to the national development with innovative solutions.

Through its past conferences, UWU has contributed immensely to explore avenues of value addition to Sri Lankan resources. This time, when the whole world faces one of the greatest challenges in the human history, the COVID-19 pandemic, IRCUWU2021 focuses on exploring new horizons to combat difficulties by opening its International Research Conference (IRCUWU2021) under the theme "Exploring Potentials in Challenging Periods"

IRCUWU2021 encourages national and international academics, researchers, scientists, industrialists, professionals, graduates and undergraduate students to discuss, share and disseminate their novel and innovative ideas and research findings in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Technology and Management at this dignified forum of intellectualities actively engaged in keeping footprints in the journey of Sustainable Development though Information and Knowledge Dissemination. This prestigious event provides opportunities for scientists, industry personnel and international delegates to unite and present their scientific innovations and discuss global trends in different fields

Guest of Honour

Ramesh Mani

Professor    Physics & Astronomy

Georgia State University

Ramesh Mani completed his undergraduate and graduate education at the University of Maryland, College Park. He worked as a guest scientist at the Max-Planck-Institute in Stuttgart, Germany, where he invented and developed the "anti-Hall bar within a Hall bar" configuration, which helped to demonstrate sign reversal of the Hall effect within voids, and the possibility of dual simultaneous ordinary, integral-quantum, and fractional-quantum Hall effects in a single multiply connected specimen. From Stuttgart, he returned to the USA with a position at the University of California, Santa Barbara, before moving to Harvard University. While at Harvard, he discovered the radiation-induced zero-resistance states and associated 1/4-cycle shifted  magnetoresistance oscillations in the GaAs/AlGaAs 2D electron system. He subsequently moved to Georgia State University, where he has established a Nanoscience, Low Temperature and High Magnetic Field Laboratory in order to examine low dimensional electronic systems based also on modern 2D materials such as graphene.
