Talk Title: Approximate Computing: An Emerging Paradigm for High-performance Energy-Efficient Design

Talk Abstract: Over the decades, Moore’s law has been the fundamental driver of computing. Since 1974 − 2004, Dennard scaling maintained the path for Moore’s law. However, with the end of Dennard scaling, increase in clock frequency and reduction in supply voltage have greatly slowed down. Therefore, in 2004, to utilize continued increase in transistor count, the microprocessor industry has shifted to multicore scaling – increasing the number of cores per die per generation. But, multicore scaling has its own challenges. From application perspective, performance gain with increased core counts is diminishing due to well-known bottlenecks, such as serial computations, synchronization, global communication, off-chip memory bandwidth, etc. From technology perspective, more cores are only possible if the cores are slower or less utilized with each generation. The consequence is that while the increase in transistor count continues at Moore’s rate, VLSI community does not have a clear path to utilize them, and thus, CMOS technology scaling is becoming less and less effective at improving system capability. Under such conditions, we must either accept that computing systems are good enough or look for alternate avenues to advance them without (significant) technology progress. There are several promising directions that jointly can provide improvements equivalent to several decades of Moore’s law. Approximate computing is one of them and in recent years, has attracted the strongest attention of the scientific community. The principal motivation behind approximate computing is the error-resilient applications. Error-resilient applications accept outputs despite some of its underlying computations being executed using approximate software/hardware. Recent studies show that a high degree of inherent error-resilience is prevalent in a broad spectrum of applications, including web search, machine learning, computer vision, probabilistic and statistical analytic, image, audio and video processing, wireless communication, etc. Approximate computing exploits inherent error-resilience of these applications and provides high-performance energy-efficient software and hardware implementation by trading-off computational quality for computational efforts. Several research efforts have explored approximate computing throughout all the layers of computing stack. The objective of this talk is to provides an in-depth overview (motivation, substantive research contributions, opportunities, challenges, etc.) of approximate computing.

Talk Title: How to write for and get published in scientific journals

Talk Abstract: The importance of scientific writing can be defined by a simple quote of Gerard Piel, which says “Without publication, science is dead.” The first scientific journal was published in 1665 and we have
travelled 350 years since then. In the last 20 years, science and reporting of science have undergone
revolutionary changes. Computerization and Internet have changed the traditional ways of reading
and writing. Hence, it is very important for scientists and students of the sciences in all disciplines to
understand the complete process of writing and publishing of scientific paper in good journals.
The talk is designed to emphasize on the most important part of research, and that is your research
is not complete until it is published. Publishing enables researchers to exchange ideas globally,
acquire research funding as well as advancement in their career. Some of the important topics
covered will be

• How to choose the best journal for your paper
• What is the submission process
• How to prepare the perfect manuscript
• What peer review is and how to handle peer review comments, and so on …

Talk Title: Significance of Privacy and Security in ICT: A Case study using Secure Multi-Party Computation for Preserving Privacy

Talk Abstract: Privacy and Security are hot and complicated topics in the modern society within which we live. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) have always been accompanied with security and privacy techniques. Security ensures protection of data of parties in the eco system from unauthorised access and privacy lets the information to be computed and transmitted such that it seems unintelligible to any unauthorised person. Traditionally, these goals have been achieved using private and public key cryptography. A novel scenario in which many parties want to jointly compute some function of their input data without disclosing this private data is considered by many researchers. Consider a set of parties who do not have trust in each other, nor in the channel by which they communicate. Even then the parties wish to correctly compute some common function of their local inputs, while keeping their local data secure from others. This, in a nutshell, is the problem of secure multi-party computation (SMC). This problem is fundamentally in cryptography and in the study of distributed computations. This problem is most relevant for performing privacy preserving data mining. In this tutorial, first, we will discuss several aspects of SMC. We first present the definition of this problem in various situations. Next, we discuss the problem of hiding the data form trusted third party (TTP).After that we take another problem, which enables the SMC to perform the correct computation of the result as well as the authentication of computational body. Finally, we discussand provide hands-on for the problem of dealing with adversaries in SMC and minimizing their effects. SMC can be applied to current computing paradigm like cloud computing. We present a model to show how SMC tools can be accompanied with various applications.

Talk Title: Application of VLSI in ESDM

Talk Abstract: As everybody knows India is good consumer of electronic goods ranging from desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile, smart phone, printer, scanner, home appliances (microwave oven, mixer, and grinder) to missile, aerospace application, automobile, autodrive car, autodrive metro train, bullet train, bio-medical instruments etc.

But our country production of electronic goods is only 5% of total consumptions. Therefore we require setup a good quality of commercial labs/ foundry to balance the demand and supply ratio. Negligence of required lab would allow world market to sell their electronic goods at their desired prices. Even India Govt. will not help us that time. In present, approx. 10000 higher technical and non-technical institutions are being run in India but less than 1% of institutions are ranked among top world class institutions list of 200. Where the problem is hidden? &why is it existing?. The reason behind it is we are in que of publishing the papers but not in queue of developing the quality products. Today all the institute ask about SCI/ Scopus papers but not about products. According to my opinion papers are good but it should be with novel products and that will be the real paper that can be sited by worldwide. Now encouragement to students, professors, industry persons for the development of new products is persistently needed. Present scenario is demanding setup a foundry/ labs to develop low cost, high quality product on the basis of research and fulfil the requirement of consumers in the market. By this way, not only balance between the demand and supply ratio will be made but the GDP of the country will also increase.
Conferences, symposiums, seminars, short term courses, summer/winter schools are a good forum where the researchers, students and professors, industry people can share their knowledge and experiences by which young talents should gain useful concepts. It should be kept in priority in all academic institutions. Invite to industry people they come & explain their problems and researchers think how they can solve those problems. If you are able to solve one/two problems in one conference/ workshop, it means efforts applied by conference organizer, institute, state and country are success.
Today, VLSI Design is a common platform for all types’ automation, communication, signal processing, bio-medical engineering, cardiac pacemakers, instrumentations, green energy, etc. Through this technique you can develop direct/indirect product that will be helpful to the society. Through this methods we can reduce the power consumptions, increase the number of electronics goods (availability), durability and latest product as per demand of the market. In this area, a number of techniques are available by which we can optimize our circuit on wafer level, SPICE level, circuit level, layout level, fabrication level, packaging level and testing level. It means we will get more accurate products if we go through this pattern.

ESDM (Electronics System Design & Manufacturing) is the Govt. plan that gives the financial support to researchers in technical universities. Govt. wants trained engineers in these areas by which trained people can think and develop the indigenous product in the country. Now our goal is to explore this idea using which everyone can take the advantage of this Govt. Scheme.

I serve as Program Coordinator & Resource Person of ESDM in East Zone of India and organized One day workshop/seminar on ESDM in fifteen technical institutions in east zone of India (IIT Patna, BIT Patna, NSIT Patna, RPSIT Patna, NIT Tripura, TIT Tripura, NIT Itanagar, BIT Deoghar, SSMC Ranchi (Ranchi University), Raipur University Ranchi, CIT Ranchi, IIT Guwahati, Don Bosco University Guwahati, MACET Patna, Guwahati University) under aegis of IETE New Delhi and funded by DeitY, MC&IT, New Delhi. In above maximum institutions got the ESDM grant for research fellow. This fellowship is also known as Visvesvaraya Fellowship.

ESDM also provides a forum for entrepreneur. You think about employers in place of employee. If you alone or in a group start some company tomorrow you will be able to give salary to more than 100 people what you are earning today. For this purpose Govt. also provides the funds as start-up grant. In this way you can serve our nation.
