It gives me immense pleasure to be able to publish this special issue of Lung India for the 15 th joint national conference of the Indian Chest Society (ICS) and the National College of Chest Physicians (NCCP) - the NAPCON 2013.
The scientific research has increasingly become absolute necessity for health care providers working in different fields of medicine. This compilation of abstracts will help you to have an idea of current research being done on the subject of pulmonary medicine in our country. The abstracts are organized into two major categories - oral and poster presentations. Subsequent subgroups were made depending on the availability of abstracts on a particular topic. Lung India team regrets for not being able to publish some abstracts submitted to the conference because of space constraints and for the sake of maintaining principles of publication. The selected abstracts, before being subjected to publication, were screened for quality at multiple levels by the scientific committee of NAPCON and the members of editorial board of Lung India. The original studies were scrutinized more meticulously when compared to case reports in orders to encourage presentations without compromising quality of scientific contents.
Lung India acknowledges with great appreciation the contribution of all the authors towards this scientific endeavor. I express my deep sense of gratitude to the Prof. A. G. Ghoshal, President, ICS and Prof. J. K. Samaria, Hon. Secretary, ICS for encouraging us in accomplishing this daunting task. I must sincerely thank the members of scientific committee of NAPCON, 13 for providing the abstracts in an organized format. I also acknowledge the sincere contribution of Prof. Parvaiz Koul, Editor; Dr. Arun Madan, Section Editor and Dr. Bharat Bhushan Sharma, Assistant Editor in critically analyzing the abstracts and making them suitable for publication.
Again, I am sure that the abstracts will fulfill your desire to search the research in this particular field of medicine and this publication will definitely boost your mood in shaping your own research further.
