NEWS LETTER
Vol - I 2002 No 1
   FROM THE CO-ORDINATORS DESK

Dear Readers,

 

One year has passed since TIFAC-CORE started functioning in its new building “Manisha”. Manisha, built at a cost of Rs 3 crores, was opened in December 2001. We had a good beginning with the various dignitaries, scientists, researchers and academicians from India and abroad meeting together at Manisha to discuss the latest trends in computing – “Nano computing”. The International conference on “Nano Compuing – Technology Trends” organized by TIFAC-CORE was a great success and the  first of its kind  in India . Readers who are interested  are requested to visit our website for details.

 

A 2 Mbps leased line Internet facility was inaugurated in TIFAC-CORE on 15th Dec 2001.TIFAC-CORE has tried to strengthen its capabilities in VLSI, Embedded Systems and Information Security by industrial & research collaboration with Electronics Corporation of India Limited, Hyderabad, Semiconductor Complex Limited, Chandigarh & Centre for High Performance Embedded System of NTU(CHiPES), Singapore.

 

Besides establishing the state-of-art facilities and design tools for VLSI design, TIFAC-CORE launched academic programmes in M.Tech, P.G.Diploma  and Certificate Course in VLSI Design in the last academic year.

 

The high speed computing facility HP rp8400- the high end server in the campus, can cater not only to the research and  acadmic needs of the campus, but also can serve as a powerful computing platform for academic and  research community nearby.  A connectivity to this resource for other TIFAC-COREs is contemplated by the Government. We will be happy to extend help to those who are interested in availing themselves of this HPC facility.

 

My sincere thanks to our leader  Prof. R.Sethuraman, Vice-Chancellor, a great visionary, without whom this TIFAC-CORE could not have been a reality. Also I take this opportunity to thank all those who have advised and helped us to lead this mission to success.

 

Wishing all the readers a very happy new year.

 

Prof. Ushadevi
Dean, School of Computing &
Co-ordinator, TIFAC-CORE
