How to write and publish a research articleAn ideal research process relies on some essential characteristics. One among them is to communicate the research findings. Peer reviewed research journals serve a huge role in this. However, researchers lack an understanding of how to write a publishable research paper. Grasping the basic structure of a scientific paper would help the researcher to decide what should be included in each section. There will be pitfalls in each of these sections but can be avoided if approached strategically. Along with the other components, target journal selection and authorship is also an important aspect of this entire activity.

Successful production of an article for submission to a peer‐reviewed scientific journal requires substantial effort. To ensure this success, The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is planning for a one-day online workshop on How to write and publish a research article.

Date: August 06, 2022

Time: 09.30 am to 1.00 pm

The workshop expects more than four hundred participants. It is open to both students and faculty from UG, PG and PhD programmes. Assistant Professors Dr V Manikandan and Dr Murali Krishna Enduri are coordinating the event. The workshop will give a general idea about topics such as, different options to publish research works, benefits of publishing research articles, steps to write a review paper or research article from scratch, hands-on training with LaTeX to write a research article etc.

Join the workshop to learn the basics of a perfect research article!

Women's day

In collaboration with IEEE-SRM Student Branch, SRM University-AP, Andhra Pradesh, is organising an invited talk to mark “Women’s Day 2022”. We have invited Er Divya M G, Joint Director, SDOS & Administration Group, at Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Bangalore as the guest speaker. She will elucidate on the topic “Trends in computing and PARAM utkarsh supercomputer” on March 12, 2022, at 6.00 pm.

PARAM Utkarsh is a High-Performance Computing System run by the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM) of the Indian government at C-DAC in Bangalore. As a cloud service, this system provides Artificial Intelligence over Machine Learning and Deep Learning frameworks.

Women’s day aims to promote a gender-neutral society. This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias. Bias, whether intentional or unconscious, makes it difficult for women to advance in their personal and professional life. International Women’s Day (March 8) is a worldwide celebration of women’s social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments. The day also serves as a rallying point for women’s equality. Er Divya, recipient of the “2020 IEEE Women in Engineering Inspiring Members of the Year Award”, is the befitting speaker of the occasion.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at SRM University-AP is organising the third lecture in the Distinguished Lecture Series on January 19, 2022, at 03.00 pm through virtual mode.

Prof Dr Marco Aiello, Head of Service Computing Department, IAAS in the University of Stuttgart, Germany, will be the esteemed speaker elaborating on the topic “Who invented this? On the Origin of Disruptive Technologies”.

The birth and evolution of ICT have been constellated by radical and rapid innovation originating from all kinds of sources. The Internet resulted from an effort started by the American government, Bluetooth came from a large European company, and the Web sprouted from a personal project of a CERN employee. In this talk, I will pick from the short but incredibly dense history of ICT to reflect on the evolution of innovation under the lenses of amateurism versus large scale, professional designs. In doing so, my main attention will be devoted to the Internet, the Web, and Service-Oriented Architectures.

CSE FDP 2021Quantum computing is one of the most significant scientific breakthroughs of the century. The Computer Science and Engineering Department at SRM university-AP is organising an online Faculty Development Programme (FDP) on the topic “Quantum Computing and Communications: New Paradigm” from December 27 to 31, 2021 for scholars from various reputed universities and institutions. The programme organised jointly with CDAC, Bengaluru, will be inaugurated on December 27, 2021, at 9.30 am.

Quantum computing is a new disruptive paradigm based on the principles of quantum mechanics to solve problems in various fields of science that are beyond the possibilities of classical computing infrastructures. Despite, a lot of theoretical research and hardware implementations, the application of quantum computing in solving a computational problem is yet to be explored. In future, a new generation of quantum technologies will drive the development of disruptive devices, services and systems which will primarily impact imaging and computing of intractable problems, as well as enhance network security.

The FDP aims to provide a comprehensive idea of quantum computing, its applications and research opportunities. Eminent speakers will provide insightful discussions on quantum computing, quantum information, quantum engineering, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. Faculty members, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students from various reputed institutions are the target audience for the FDP.

CSE organises webinar on “Nanonetworking in the Terahertz Band (and Beyond): From Nanomaterials to Macrosystems”

Department of Computer Science and Engineering organises a webinar on “Nanonetworking in the Terahertz Band (and Beyond): From Nanomaterials to Macrosystems” on February 20, 2021, at 7:00 PM IST. Dr Josep M Jornet, Associate Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northeastern University, USA, is the distinguished speaker for the webinar.

Abstract: The possibility to control matter at the atomic and molecular scale opens the door to new physics, which can be leveraged into developing new types of devices with unprecedented capabilities. For the Communication community, the plasmonic properties of nanomaterials and nanostructures enable the development of miniature transceivers and antennas, which
intrinsically operate in uncharted spectral bands. The extremely small size of the devices and the unprecedentedly large bandwidths that these can excess opens the door to transformative applications across scales. In this talk, the state-of-the-art technology in electromagnetic nano communication and networks will be presented by following a bottom-up approach. The fundamental physical properties and capabilities of novel plasmonic transceivers, antennas and antenna arrays at terahertz and optical frequencies will be described. The propagation properties of the generated electromagnetic waves and their implications for practical communication systems will be presented. Starting from the hardware capabilities and the channel peculiarities, innovative solutions at the different layers of the protocol stack will be discussed, all defining a roadmap that can transform over ten years of fundamental research into meaningful societal applications.
