History of ICOVP Series

The first ICOVP Conference was held in 1990 at the A.C. College, Jalpaiguri, under the co-Chairmanship of two scientists, namely Professor M. M. Banerjee from the host Institution and Professor P. Biswas from the sister organization A. C. College of Commerce. The initial name of the Conference was “International Conference on Vibration Problems of Mathematics and Physics” and was changed to the current one at its third edition.

During the last twenty-eight years, the ICOVP activities have been gaining momentum to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century, regarding the up to date engineering issues and their applications in the high-technology industries - such as high-speed spacecraft, nuclear power plants, offshore, storage and high-rise structures- where vibration has a significant impact.
