16th Dec. to 18th Dec. 2001 - A Report
fourth session, Dr. Apoorva D.Patel,IISc , Bangalore
delivered a tutorial on “ Quantum and Molecular
Computing” He gave an introduction of computations,
quantum mechanics & parallel processing. He
also explained the quilts and unitary evolution. He
explained the Algorithm for quantum computers.
Lastly, Dr. Lalith Bharadwaj, CSIO, Chandigarh, India gave brief introduction on MEMS - Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems. He explained the various fabrication techniques such as MEMS fabrication, LIGA process Electrochemical Fabrication(EFAB). He illustrated the difference between the processing of IC & MEMS. He also explained the packaging of MEMS Program at CSIO and brief introduction on MEMS technology.
ICNC-2001 – Inaugural function
The International conference on Nano Computing organized by the TIFAC CORE at SASTRA was inaugurated on 17th December 2001 at SASTRA campus.
his welcome address the Vice-Chancellor of SASTRA University
Prof. R. Sethuraman recalled that exactly a year ago a
Memorandum Of Understanding was signed between the
Department of Science and Technology and SASTRA for
establishing a TIFAC CORE in Advanced Computing and
Information Processing at SASTRA, & the process was
completed in record time .The TIFAC CORE building was aptly
named “MANISHA” or ‘absolute knowledge’ and declared
open by His Holiness of Kanchi. He stated that a Super-Computer,Vision
and Image processing Laboratory would be set up at the TIFAC
CORE at SASTRA. Throwing light on the proposed activities of
the CORE he mentioned that the programme would elicit
support from the industries and foster industry-institution
linkages in research and technology development, with
support from the Department of Science and Technology. On
the CORE being set up in this rather remote part of the
country he said that while speaking about Nano Technology,
time and space do not matter. Further, quoting the Vedas, he
explained that Nano-technology was conceptualized in the
Indian Scriptures where there is a mention of the atom being
split into infinite number of particles, the smallest of the
small and the largest of the large.
