FDP on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Cognizance in Research & Innovation

Start: 06-01-2017

Organised by Department of Electronics &  Instrumentation Engineering, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University)

FDP on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Cognizance in Research & Innovation

Date: Jan 6, 2017

Venue: Computer Centre 

Dr. Sudesh Sivarasu, B.E., M.Tech, Ph.D
Head- Biomechanics and Medical Device Research Group,
Senior Lecturer – Biomedical Engineering,  University of Cape Town , South Africa
Adjunct Lecturer – Northwestern University, Chicago, USA.


Effective Intellectual property (IP) protection has been a critical factor in deciphering translation of academic research beyond the boundaries of tertiary educational institutions such as universities. Industries have always been on top of this, however academia is playing a serious catch-up to invest in IP’s. This workshop is aimed at addressing this ‘missing middle’ awareness of IP which would facilitate translator research. 
The workshop aims at providing fundamental background on Intellectual properties which include Patents, Copyrights, Designs, Trademark etc. The participants would understand how to make use of the technology transfer offices (IPR Cell) within the university, to protect and commercialise IP generated through research.
IP databases are critical resources which are generally not utilized by academic researchers. This workshop aims in bridging this gap and providing a hands-on training how to search patents using popular IP databases such as Google Patents, USPTO, Espacenet, WIPO etc.
Attendees would also be given information on their own rights and responsibilities regarding IP generated through their own research. Experts would also be discussing on various technology commercialization options available for innovations from academic researchers.

DST Inspire Science Camp 2017

“Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research” (INSPIRE) is an innovative programme initiated by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, to attract talents to the excitement and study of science at an early age. Under the purview of DST INSPIRE program, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), Kattankulathur organized a science camp with an aim of attracting and motivating the young minds of India to mould their career for research in the front line areas of science and technology. DST INSPIRE Science Camp was conducted between 07-11 January 2017 at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University).

Students pursuing science in school at XI-XII standard during the academic year 2016-17 were selected and shortlisted for the science camp if they had secured a minimum of 94.2% and above in 10th Tamil Nadu state board/Matriculation/CBSE-CGPA A1 in 10th standard/ICSE-95% in 10th standard/AMU Board-86.6% in 10th standard/Viswa Bharathi-95.1% in 10th standard.

487 students were shortlisted for participation in the science camp. The science camp had talks from eminent scientists, industrial visits, one-one student-mentor interactions, hands on experience program, space workshop, science stage show, Quiz etc.

Dr. R. Balasubramanian, Director, Faculty of Science and Humanities, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), Chennai delivered the welcome address. Dr. D. John Thiruvadigal, Dean (Sciences), SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), Chennai, introduced the DST-INSPIRE science camp. The presidential address was delivered by Prof. Prabir K Bagchi, Vice Chancellor, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), Chennai. Dr. Christine Pfund, Research Mentor-Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics & Medicine (STEMM), University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA, inaugurated the science camp followed with special talks by Padmasri Prof. Rajpal S. Sirohi, Former Director, IIT Delhi and Dr. J. Daniel Chellappa, Senior Scientist, Bhaba Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India.

Workshop on Cloud and Devos

Start: 12-01-2017

Event Description:

Cloud computing is an information technology (IT) paradigm that enables ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable system resources and higher-level services that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a public utility.

The purpose of organizing this workshop was to provide hands-on experience to all the participants on the latest technology subject. The workshop was organized with the help of RedHat. They had sent a resource person for the workshop. He was working in Advantage Pro. He had very sound knowledge about Cloud technology. The workshop was held at 12th floor of University Building. The workshop started at 10:00 a.m. and ended at 1:30p.m.

All the participants got participation certificates as well issued from RedHat. They were grateful towards the department for giving them the opportunity to learn and acquire a new skill. They were looking forward to many such workshops in the future as well.

FDP on Open Stack Operational and Development

Start: 13-01-2017

Event Description:

Open Stack is a free and open-source software platform for cloud computing, mostly deployed as infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), whereby virtual servers and other resources are made available to customers. The sole purpose of organizing this workshop was to provide a wider vision of the operations and development of Open Stack in the Field of Cloud Platform since it was upcoming technology in the near future.

The IT Department organized an FDP titled “Open Stack Operational and Development” on 13th January 2017. All the faculties were invited to attend the FDP and get to know about the Open Stack Cloud. The workshop started with an inaugural ceremony followed by a detailed discussion about the various operations of Open Stack. After this, information about Open Stack Development was given. The OpenStack community collaborates around a six-month, time-based release cycle with frequent development milestones. During the planning phase of each release, the community would gather for an OpenStack Design Summit to facilitate developer working sessions and to assemble plans. These Design Summits would coincide with the OpenStack Summit conference.

Starting with the Pike development cycle the design meetup activity has been separated out into a separate Project Teams Gathering (PTG) event. This was done to avoid the developer distractions caused by presentations and customer meetings that were happening at the OpenStack Summit and to allow the design discussions to happen ahead of the start of the next cycle. With this, the workshop ended. The participants were awarded certificates.
