Computation can have many positive influences on modern life, but these benefits are unevenly distributed, particularly in a country with as much socio-economic diversity as India. COMPUTE 2018 – An International Symposium organized by ACM India in collaboration with Chitkara University, Punjab has Computing for Better Bharat as its prime objective and will focus on following two theme areas:-
Theme 1 - Improving the quality of computer science engineering education (including curriculum, pedagogy and assessment) in Indian undergraduate programs.
Theme 2 - (Poster Presentation Competition) - Utilizing computation to address India-specific challenges including challenges of rural India.
Theme 1 will be of particular interest to Computer Science Educators, and will feature:
*Detailed Technical Program Pertaining to Theme 1 will be available around July- August 2018.
Theme 2 is directed toward students, research scholars, academicians who wish to present solutions to the one of the below listed problems by participating is Poster Presentation Competition to be organized during COMPUTE 2018. It is desired that participating teams should have prototype of their solution also available. Shortlisted teams will be expected to showcase their prototypes (or video of their prototypes) during the competition.
Based on the Poster Presentations during COMPUTE 2018, a panel of experts will identify the winners, who will receive cash prizes and will be connected to mentors for taking their prototypes further. (More details about this will be available very soon)
Last date for submitting the Posters is August 15, 2018. Submission instructions will be available soon.
