Dear Friends,

Welcome to IRACON 2017!

Thanks to the massive efforts of the entire editorial team and colleagues both in India and abroad your journal has continued to make progress. Though the challenges remain, I am confident that they are not insurmountable. I would like to thank our reviewers in particular, as without their voluntary contribution in time and expertise, peer review cannot take place (please see the list of reviewers for this year on page S139).

We at the Journal are committed to publish good quality original research and the results of best original paper awards for 2016--2017 can be found on page Svi. Our heartiest congratulations to all the awardees.

As ever, I welcome feedback or suggestions regarding any aspect of the Journal by mailing to or to the postal address of the editorial office as appears below.

On behalf of my team I wish all of you a very happy and prosperous new year 2018.

Best wishes

Financial support and sponsorship
