Indian Science Congress Association 

The Indian Science Congress Association owes its origin to the two British Chemists, Professor J. L. Simonsen and Professor P. S. Mac Mahon.  It was set up in Kolkata in 1914.

It was their view that scientific research in India would be stimulated if an annual meeting of research workers somewhat on the lines of the British Association for the Advancement of Science could be arranged. 

Every year its members meet annually in the first week of January named Indian Science Congress. The first session of the Congress was held in 1914.
