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.

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.

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.

Join this inspiring session on March 12, 2022, at 6.00 pm.

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!

youth empowerment SRMAP

India is one of the countries in the world currently experiencing an explosion in the youth population. And undoubtedly, skilled youth is the supreme asset of any land. However, the dismaying fact is that the surpassing potential of our youth is yet to be explored to its fullest. Higher institutes of learning and universities play a pivotal role in equipping their students to face the ever-evolving world fraught with unseen challenges. Reckoning with this alarming fact, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at SRM University-AP is organising a one-month-long programme on “Youth Empowerment and Skill Development” under the ISR activities of the university from Aug 29, 2022, to Sept 28, 2022.

The programme is exclusively organised for young people living in rural communities near SRM University-AP with an aim to develop the knowledge and experiences that will help them live happier, more fulfilling lives and improve their ability to make better decisions about their future. Courses are offered across various domains such as internet technologies, web development, MS office, and the like that have become essential tools in a technology-driven world.

The inaugural session is scheduled on August 29, 2022, at 05.15 pm. The event will be graced by the honourable Vice-Chancellor Prof VS Rao, Dean – SEAS Prof BV Babu, Associate Dean – SEAS & the Head of the Department of CSE – Prof T Ragunathan, and other university dignitaries. Classes will be conducted between 5.30 pm and 7.00 pm during the month.

Join us and empower yourself for a better tomorrow.

Hackathon SRMAP

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering in association with the SRM AP Hackathon club is organising a webinar titled Introduction to Hackathon: Best Practices from 9 am to 10 am, followed by a 24-hour internal hackathon C2Hack at 10 am on September 24, 2022.

A hackathon is a social coding event bringing together computer programmers and other technology enthusiasts together to conceive a new software programme or redesign an existing programme to enhance its performance. Hackathons present a constructive platform for developing prototypes for various applications and programming languages or for providing solutions to real-life challenges ranging from educational technology to disaster management.

Hackathons are thus classified into different types based on their objectives and themes. Having a well-defined set of rules is a necessity while organising a hackathon. The webinar intends to introduce students to the fundamentals of hackathon and some of the effective practices one may follow while participating in a hackathon. Students will also be given the opportunity to test their hacking skills in an internal hackathon C2Hack following the session.

Join the webinar and learn how to use your tech genius to find solutions to the greatest of real-life challenges. Every hackathon is a smart route to actualise your ideas into innovations.
