The thirteenth EECS Research Students Symposium (EECS 2022) was organised by the Division of Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Sciences (EECS), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, on the 8th and 9th of April, 2022. The Departments of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS), Computer Science and Automation (CSA), Electrical Communication Engineering (ECE), Electrical Engineering (EE), Electronic Systems Engineering (DESE), and the Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber-Physical Systems (RBCCPS) participated in the symposium.
This has been an annual event since 2010. It serves as a forum for interaction among graduate students and leaders from the industry and academia.
This year’s programme included plenary talks by eminent industry leaders, faculty talks, and research talks by senior graduate students. The research cluster talks encompassed signal processing and communication (SPCOM); artificial intelligence/machine learning; theoretical computer science; cyber-physical systems; security; visual analytics; brain, computation, and data sciences; microelectronics; power; networking and internet of things (IoT).
The plenary speakers were Krishnaswamy, T. (Director, Engineering at Qualcomm), Tanveer F. Syeda-Mahmood (IBM Fellow and Global Imaging AI Leader in IBM Research), and K. Ananth Krishnan (Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Tata Consultancy Services). While Krishnaswamy spoke on ‘Transceiver Design for Cellular: Challenges and Directions’, Tanveer F. Syeda-Mahmood described the ‘Medical Sieve Grand Challenge: A Turing Test for Chest Radiology AI’ and Ananth Krishnan’s topic was ‘Science & Technology for Today & Tomorrow’. Although they covered different topics, the connecting thread was interdisciplinarity and synergy. “Most innovations happen at the junction of multiple disciplines”, said Krishnaswamy.
