Organizer: Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Delhi Technical Campus Greater Noida

Date: 15th April -16th April 2021

Objective

As the exceptional use of IoT, smart and connected devices, has made the data processing a crucial task, AIE2021 conclave aims to explore the new dimensions of data processing technologies like Edge Computing, FoG Computing, Cloud Computing etc.

The foremost objective behind AIE2021 was to provide a platform where the academic research communities, experts from industries, scientists and participants come collectively to deliberate their ideas and application experiences in data processing field.

  • To discuss evolution in data processing technologies
  • To discuss various edge-based data processing technologies
  • To discuss about next generation sensor networks
  • To discuss various issues like budget and bandwidth limitations etc. during development of AI, ML and IoT based models.
  • To provide an opportunity to deliberate on new ideas and the application experiences.

Conclave Opening

AIE 2021 began on 15th April 2021 at 10:00 A.M with opening remarks by respected dignitaries-

Patrons:

Hon’ble Mr. Vipin Sahni, Chairman, DTC, Greater Noida

Hon’ble  Mrs. Kiran Sahni, Chairperson, DTC, Greater Noida

Hon’ble Mr. Justice Bhawar Singh, Director General, DTC,Greater Noida

Chairman: Prof (Dr) Ranjit Varma, Director, DTC, Greater Noida

Convener: Prof (Dr) Pranay Tanwar, Dean Academics,    DTC, Greater Noida

Chief Guest: Shri R. Panneerselvam, Principal Director, Ministry of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME), Govt of India

Conclave Format

AIE 2021 was successfully organized virtually dedicated to keynote addresses by the experts and technical sessions. The two days conclave was comprised of 8 keynote addresses of 45 minutes from National and international distinguished speakers from reputed universities and industries like University of Milan, Italy, INHA University, Uzbekistan, University of Technology & Applied Sciences, Oman, University of New Brunswick, Canada, National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG), Galway, Ireland, Bennett University, Greater Noida, Amity University Uttar Pradesh, and Best Buy Canada

AIE 2021 was structured to foster discussion between participants around the core theme of the conclave. This was achieved by the two technical sessions- Research Paper Presentations and Student Track. 

The research paper presentations were organized in two parallel sessions. Each session was related to core theme of the conclave. Poster Presentation and Short Paper Publication under student track was organized to showcase the innovative model or work done by the students and researchers.

Conclave Participation

The conclave seen a huge response from different corners of the country  Maharashtra, Pondicherry, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu etc and  from Industry such as Microchip Technologies.

A successful conclave can not be organized without a good review and advisory people. The technical committee chaired by Dr. Deepak Kumar, Amity University Uttar Pradesh had a very challenging task of selecting high quality submissions. Each paper was peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers and on the recommendation of our technical committee 13 papers were finally accepted for the presentation during the conclave AIE2021.

Whether you are a professional, an advise from experts is always required at every step for successful completion of any event. AIE 2021  International Advisory committee was chaired by Dr. Seung-Hwa Chung, Trinity College Dublin. It had members from countries like Ireland, Canada, Uzbekistan, South Korea, Malaysia and India. The guidance and support provided by all the members of advisory committee is highly appreciated.
