A.P.J. Kalam served India as president from 2002-2007. The University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Economics will host the Kalam Scholars Conference for Indian Business & Economic Research Monday, May 6, at the Boone Center on campus.

The A.P.J. Kalam India Studies Research Program, funded through the generous gift of Dr. M.S. Vijayaraghavan, supports research in the Gatton College examining India's role in international commerce.  The program also supports intellectual interaction between scholars in India and UK.

This conference will present preliminary work from scholars at Gatton whose research was supported by the program. In addition, eminent scholars from India will present their research.
