Workshop On Intellectual Property Rights in Semiconductor Chips
Intellectual Property (IP)
has become a key driver for R&D in Science and Technology, that dominate the
knowledge society of 21st century. Seamless commerce and Globalization
concepts have brought the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) to
the fore giving a major focus to IP as a strategic asset. IP Rights (IPR)
has thus become a currency of power widely sought to protect inventions and new
ideas. Recognizing the central role IPs play in the modern technology
products and services, countries around globe have drawn legal frameworks for
enabling registration of the IPRs. The two-day workshop was held during
July 12 - 14, 2006 in association with IEEE India, EDS Chapter and MHRD.
This workshop was
specifically on the IP protection regimes in Semiconductor Chips and Products.

National Seminar on Embedded Systems
Identification (RFID) is a much-touted Technology today enabling
data to be transmitted by a tiny portable device, called tag,
which is read by a RFID reader and processed according to the
needs of a particular application. The development of RFID
