First IDRBT Doctoral Colloquium

With the objectives of initiating networking amidst technology researchers, sharing knowledge and learning from each other and exploring emerging areas of research in various areas of technology, the Institute organised the First IDRBT Doctoral Colloquium on September 22 & 23, 2011 at the Institute.

This colloquium provided an opportunity for researchers from reputed institutions such as IITs and NITs to present and discuss their research ideas. Twelve research scholars from various IITs NITs, an IIM and a Central University presented their research in the colloquium and the details are hereunder:

An eminent jury consisting of Dr. R. B. Barman, Member, IDRBT Governing Council and Chairman, IDRBT Research Advisory Committee; Prof. B. L. Deekshatulu and Prof. D. K. Subramanian, Distinguished Fellows, IDRBT, evaluated the proposals and presentations and the top three research scholars received prizes of Rs 50,000/-, Rs 30,000/- and Rs 25,000/- respectively in order of their standing.

The proposals were evaluated on the parameters of Originality, Depth of work (Modelling, Design, Experimentation, Results), Technical Content (Models, Optimization, Technologies, Analysis), Presentation (Graphs, Explanations, Language, Clarity), Relevance, Applicability, Modernism and Correctness of Work (Correct, Complete, Gaps) and the winners are:

  • First Prize: Ruchira Naskar, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, for her contribution entitled Content Protection Through Reversible Watermarking.
  • Second Prize: Badrinath G S, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, for his contribution entitled An Efficient Palmprint Based Recognition System using 1D- DCT Features.
  • Third Prize: Hunny Mehrotra, National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, for her contribution entitled Unconstrained Iris Recognition using F-SIFT.
