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.

Department of Computer Science and Engineering is conducting a five-day workshop on the real-world applications in the Internet of things and Blockchain Technology from January 18-22, 2021. The workshop has been organised in association with APPLY VOLT. Eminent speakers from reputed institutes such as the University of California, San Diego, USA; IIT Kharagpur, NIT-Warangal, MNIT Jaipur will be sharing their valuable opinions and insights in the workshop. The registration for the workshop ends on January 16, 2021.

Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most exciting trends and innovation in the recent history of technological advancement covering a wide range of applications like healthcare, entertainment, appliances control & utility services, security, defence, traffic management, transportation, home & industrial automation, remote monitoring, smart cities, smart farming, smart grid etc. IoT is the network of physical devices accessed through the Internet. IoT market is likely to experience year-on-year growth, rising to more than 50 billion devices, digitally connected across the globe by 2020, and representing $19 trillion in business opportunities. The graduate and postgraduate engineers have substantial job opportunities because of a wide range of IoT applications. Research scholars have a tremendous opportunity to work in different applications of IoT.

This workshop aims to impart knowledge about the real-time applications of IoT among students and the teaching community. Experts from academia and industry have been invited to deliver lectures about the current and emerging trends in IoT and Blockchain technology. The workshop will focus on theoretical and hands-on experience in IoT and Blockchain Technology to interface the things for different applications using Raspberry Pi/Arduino/Intel Galileo toolkits with devices such as LEDs, sensors, actuators etc. The theoretical session will be conducted in the morning hours and practical sessions in the afternoon. To conclude the workshop, a small project will be given to the students as a task, and the winners will be awarded a certificate of participants.

Dr Sridharan R will be hosting a session arranged by the Department of Computer Science, SRM University-AP, Andhra Pradesh on December 3, 2020, at 11.30 AM. During the session, the revered mathematician will be delivering a lecture on “Baby steps towards Quantum Computing”. Dr Sridharan R researched on “Efficient placement of VMs and containers on cloud and edge resources” to obtain his Doctorate in Mathematics. In his career spanning over 25 years, his portfolio of research domains includes correctness Debugger and Profilers for Parallel and Distributed computing, as well as Grid and Cloud computing. Further, his current research interest involves Cloud Computing and Quantum Computing. Quantum computing is the use of quantum phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computation. Capable of moving both backward and forward in time, quantum particles can exist in two places at the same time and even ‘teleport’. This subject has gained immense popularity in the modern days as Quantum computers will have enhanced efficiency by using quantum bits or qubits instead of the simple manipulation of ones and zeros.
