Data Analytics

One-day IEEE Preconference Workshop on

“Data Analytics”



Introduction to the Workshop:

Big Data is a term for datasets that are so large or complex that traditional data processing applications are inadequate to deal with them. Challenges include analysis, capture, data curation, search, sharing, storage, transfer, visualization, querying, updating and information privacy.
About this course:

Interested in increasing your knowledge of the Big Data Landscape? This course is for those who are new to data science and interested in understanding why the Big Data Era has come to be. It is for those who want to become conversant with the terminology and the core concepts behind Big Data problems, applications and systems. It is for those who want to start thinking about how Big Data might be useful in their business or career. Big data is an evolving term that describes any voluminous amount of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data that has the potential to be mined for information. Big data is often characterized by 3Vs: the extreme volume of data, the wide variety of data types and the velocity at which the data must be processed. Although big data doesn't equate to any specific volume of data, the term is often used to describe terabytes, petabyte sand even Exabyte’s of data captured over time.
Topics:

1. Introduction to Analytics and applications
2. Overview and Latest Trends of Big Data Analytics
3. Case studies on Big Data analytical algorithms and applications

Nano & Quantum Computers – The Future of Computing!

One-day IEEE Preconference Workshop on

“Nano & Quantum Computers – The Future of Computing!”


Introduction:

Traditional computers that bank upon ‘bits’, that encode zeroes and ones would be no more in the years to come. The future is going to be quantum computers that use quantum bits or qubits. A qubit encodes zeroes and ones into distinguishable quantum states. The laws of quantum mechanics could be then exploited to process information and harness the power of computation. The true potential of quantum computers might not have been realized yet, but could really sweep the world of computers, electronics and communications.

Objectives of the workshop:
The objective of this workshop is to realize the concepts of quantum and nano computers, providing insights into recent developments and also challenges associated in the exciting area. A basic overview of the important ideas and scope of quantum phenomena for computing is covered in the first part of the workshop. The second part of the lectures covers manufacturing and fabrication processes at the tiny scale and methods of handling such delicate functional structures. This is followed by a brief on current state of art nano scale electronics and devices. The applications and limits of such tiny devices for powerful computations and communications will be treated. Finally construction, possible materials, advantages and limits of nano architectures required for future computing will be covered.

Topics:
1. Nano & Quantum Phenomena - Limits & Opportunities
2. Nano manufacturing
3. Nano electronics & Devices
4. Nano computing - Architectures & Systems

Wireless Communication

One-day IEEE Preconference Workshop on

“Application of Lab VIEW for Wireless Communications”


Wireless Communication is widely being acclaimed as one of the tremendous contribution of technology which has revolutionized the world.  The explosive growth of wireless services has set the tone to understand the ever-growing nature of this domain right from the basics to the latest advancements.  This preconference workshop on “ Wireless Communications using LabVIEW” aims at training the engineering institution teachers / researchers to equip themselves with the recent trends in wireless communication design, development, deployment and evaluation metrics.  The workshop will have both lecture and hands-on sessions right from the fundamentals to hardware unit interfacing for wireless application development.  Participate in the workshop will help you with below points

·         Discover how to use LabVIEW system design software to easily acquire, analyze, and record wireless signals from the NI Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) software defined radio.
·         Learn how to prototype a wireless communication receiving algorithm using this flexible, scalable radio.

Topics:
·         Software Defined Radio Basics
·         Setting up a USRP software defined radio
·         Programming in LabVIEW
·         Demodulating an FM station

In addition to the technical support from IEEE, the workshop is organized in association with M/s National Instruments, Bangalore.

THE SMART GRID

One-day IEEE Preconference Workshop on

“THE SMART GRID”


Objectives of the workshop:

The Smart Grid- "The grid," refers to the electric grid, a network of transmission lines, substations, transformers and more that deliver electricity from the power plant to your home or business. Our current electric grid was built in the 1890s and improved upon as technology advanced through each decade. Today, it consists of more than 9,200 electric generating units with more than 1 million megawatts of generating capacity connected to more than 300,000 miles of transmission lines. It is one that can automate and manage the increasing complexity and needs of electricity in the 21st Century.

In short, the digital technology that allows for two-way communication between the utility and its customers, and the sensing along the transmission lines is what makes the grid smart.
The benefits associated with the Smart Grid include:

1.More efficient transmission of electricity
2.Quicker restoration of electricity after power disturbances
3.Reduced operations and management costs for utilities, and ultimately lower power costs for consumers
4.Reduced peak demand, which will also help lower electricity rates
5.Increased integration of large-scale renewable energy systems
6.Better integration of customer-owner power generation systems, including renewable energy systems Improved security

A smarter grid will enable an unprecedented level of consumer participation. For example, you will no longer have to wait for your monthly statement to know how much electricity you use. With a smarter grid, you can have a clear and timely picture of it. "Smart meters," and other mechanisms, will allow you to see how much electricity you use, when you use it, and its cost.
