Indian Science Congress Association is an annual meet up of the research workers in India for the development and promotion of science in India. The meeting is held in any one of the Indian cities and some of the very significant decisions pertaining to the promotion of science in the country are taken at the Indian Science Congress Association. It was a brain child of two British chemists Professor J. L. Simonsen and Professor P.S. MacMahon.

The Indian Science Congress Association was held for the first time in the year 1914 in Asiatic Society Kolkata (Calcutta previously). 105 scientists from different parts of the country attended the event and a total of 35 papers were read. At present ISCA has more than 10,000 members and more than 1000 papers are read at the event.

The Indian Science Congress Association will hold its 99th session from 4th January 2012 to 7th January 2012. Nobel Laureates Dr. Rolf M. Zinkernagel, Dr. Kurt Wuthrich and Dr. Richard R. Ernst will grace the occasion and prove a great help to the amateurs. Indian Science Congress Association also organizes exhibitions through which emergence of India as a new centre of scientific interest is portrayed. The event will be held in the city of Bhubaneshwar. The president of the Indian Science Congress this year will be Professor Geetha Bali and the title of presidential address this year will be "Science and Technology for Inclusive Innovation-Role of Women." Numerous journals are also published giving account of the events at the Indian Science Congress Association.
