Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) Deemed to be University, which is regarded as the world's largest anthropological laboratory, has been awarded the privilege to host the 19th International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (ICAES) 2023. India, represented by KISS, won the bid against Croatia by a huge margin to host the next edition of this prestigious World Congress of Anthropology at KISS in 2023 in collaboration with Utkal University and Sambalpur University. 

More than 10000 delegates from over 150 countries are expected to participate in the World Congress, which is held every five years in different parts of the world. ICAES is the largest gathering of academicians and researchers in the fields of Anthropology and Ethnology in the world. It is also the oldest meet of the scholars engaged in the scientific study of humankind. India will be hosting this prestigious meet after a long gap of 45 years. 

KISS Deemed to be University, the first ever tribal university of the world, won the highly competitive bidding process after a lot of efforts, constant follow-up, communication, presentation, defending and going through a rigorous procedure of voting. KISS had applied earlier in 2014 but lost the bid to Brazil then. This time, during the congress held in Brazil from 16th to 20th of July 2018, the final bidding was held between KISS and Croatia. KISS from India got 2084 votes, while Croatia managed to get only 89 votes. Prof. Soumendra Mohan Patnaik, VC, Utkal University, Prof. Deepak Behera, and KISS team presented before the General Assembly the plan to host this mega event.

"Gives more Opportunities to hunt for the Knowledge"

KIIT University provides excellent education along with all-round development of an individual. Apart from the regular studies, it gives great importance to Industry-related activities. We get to interact with legend Industrialists very often. The only thing I don't like about college is that it doesn't offer lucrative placement offers. The admission process starts after the declaration of 12th class results by major educational bodies. We are supposed to apply online before the due date and appear for the online entrance exam.

"KIIT UNIVERISTY overall review"

My college is outstanding regarding its preference for excellence rather than doing nothing. It is the No.1 private college in India right now and grades, results, and career-wise it's fabulous. The admission process takes around mid-April through an entrance examination called KIITEE. The nearest college from my home by train( although I'm staying in Hostel xD), academic brilliance throughout the college, Professors, and mentors are 24x7 available for helping the students. I searched in collegedunia a year back regarding choosing my stream according to the rank that I have got.

"Know Your College"

Also, my hostel(KP4) is also having bad facilities compared to other Campuses. 2. First thing was filling up the form which starts generally from February-March and ends up in April.
