RS’11 IIIT Delhi

January 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

So, last week we had IIIT Delhi’s Research Showcase for the first time.
Undergrad students showed off posters of their term projects to judges and audience, for their votes.

I really enjoyed it, we (Phd students) did a full review of the applicants. We wrote out detailed review via easychair (pretty good). Just some pointers for next time though:

  1.  We need more tracks. Maybe this was the first time and we didn’t expect so much variety.
  2.  Little more outlet of creativity and innovation. So i like (in the future) to see robots, smart mobile apps, straw bridges (yes, i said it), nice designs and graphics.
  3.  Some students should have and show-off their pass time projects. Software that they built for the fun of it.

Must point out also some of the projects I really liked.

Disha: Oh, yah! you guys are IIIT’s stars. I think you didnt get first place cause we already heard so much about you. Consider porting your entire app onto the phone, thrash the server-client model. Probably you can break down Delhi’s map into quadrants to make computation on phone light.

PNR: LOL! I heard your story behind the project, funny as hell. You should consider logging all the info you collect so you can learn and generate probability of confirmation. I wonder if you would have won if there was a track on innovation

hmm… who else?.. the Assignment peer review system was good, but you didn’t give  a reason to shift from available systems like easychair. But i see your point. Well done guys.

Congrats KD for yet another fine job managing the event. Its surprising but your work ethic is an inspiration.
