Proceedings of the conference would be brought in two parts. The first part would carry background papers by leading researchers in the field of leather chemicals, which will form the basis for discussions during LERIG 2011. Short write-ups from the panelists would also be included. The conference would strive to encourage young graduates to take up research and to do so a poster session with theme as Green and Sustainable Chemistry would also be organized alongside the conference and the abstracts of the same would form a part of the proceedings. The second part of the proceedings would be published after the conference and this would carry the presentations made by the panelists, recommendations of the brainstorming sessions and action plan for research on leather chemicals.
