Prof. Abhishek Bhattacharya, IEM-UEM group was invited to deliver a motivational talk to the different schools of Agartala representing the University of Engineering & Management (UEM).
Prof. Susmita Sur Koley from ISI (Indian Statistical Institute) came to the University of Engineering & Management (UEM), Kolkata and addresed the students and teachers of the University.
Prof Koley Susmita Sur-Kolay received the B.Tech.(Hons.) degree in Electronics and Electrical Communications Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Jadavpur University India. She has been a faculty member in the Advanced Computing and Microelectronics Unit of the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India since 1999 and is presently a Professor. During the period 1993-99, she was a Reader in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Jadavpur University. Prior to that, she was a post-doctoral fellow at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a Research Assistant at the Laboratory for Computer Science in Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She was also on sabbatical at Princeton University and Intel Corp., USA. Her research contributions are in the areas of electronic design automation for VLSI physical design, fault modeling and testing, synthesis of quantum computers, and graph algorithms. She has co-authored several technical papers in leading international journals and refereed conference proceedings, and a chapter in the Handbook on Algorithms for VLSI Physical Design Automation. She was the Technical Program Co-Chair of the 18th International Conference on VLSI Design (2005),the 11th Symposium on VLSI Design and Test (2007), ISVLSI 2011 and has served on the program committees of several international conferences. She has served on the editorial board of the IET Computers and Digital Techniques, and IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems. She is a Distinguished Visitor of IEEE Computer Society (India), Senior Member of IEEE, Member of ACM, IET and VLSI Society of India.

LOGISCOPE2016 – 4th Annual Conference on Logistics and Supply Chain Management attended by students and teachers of University of Engineering & Management (UEM)
Professors of IEM-UEM group went to IIT Kharagpur to represent our #educational_group under the Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) program of IIT Kharagpur.
Govt. of India approved a new program titled Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) in Higher Education aimed at tapping the #talent pool of scientists and entrepreneurs, internationally to encourage their engagement with the institutes of Higher Education in India so as to augment the country’s existing academic resources, accelerate the pace of quality reform, and elevate India’s scientific and technological capacity to global excellence.
Pritam Bhattacharya, an alumni member of IEM-UEM group, addressed the students at the Science Auditorium.
Pritam ranked 35th All India Rank in GATE examination, and is the recipient of TCS Research Scholarship 2015.
He is pursuing his Ph.D in IIT Kharagpur. His area of research is Approximation Algorithms in Computational Research.
Very interestingly, he spoke on “Cheating Husbands – an Interplay between Knowledge, Action and Communication.” He used the interesting story involving Husbands of Mamajorca to get his ideas of Randomization Algorithms and Approximation Algorithms through.
IEM-UEM group is always proud of its alumni.
