CSE Department, IIT Bombay, Annual Report 2006-2007


The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) merged with the Kanwal Rekhi School of Information Technology (KreSIT) in March 2007, to form a single Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The rest of the report, therefore, is a report of the accomplishments of the joint department. The merged department continued maintaining its leadership among peer institutions of its kind. With 33 faculty and 63 research scholars on its roll, the CSE department of IIT Bombay also continued as the largest and most active research program in the country.

Our students and faculty received various awards during this year - Ananthakrishna R (Research Scholar) won the second prize in Techvista-the annual flagship event of Microsoft Research India- held at IISc Bangalore. Sobhan Babu won the IBM Outstanding Ph.D. award for 2006, given by IBM India Research Lab, New Delhi. Appu Shaji, Ph.D. student with ViGIL was one of 5 Indians who won the Australia Govt. Endeavour (http://www.endeavour.dest.gov.au/) award. Prof. Krithi Ramamritham was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Science from University of Sydney, Australia and the 2006 IIT Madras Distinguished Alumnus Award. Prof. Soumen Chakrabarti was a recipient of the 2006 IBM Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) innovation award and Microsoft Live Labs Accelerating Search in Academic Research 2006 RFP Awards. Prof Umesh Bellur and Prof. S. Sudarshan each were recipients of the IBM Faculty Award for the year 2006. Prof. N.L. Sarda was honoured as a Fellow of the Computer Society of India. Prof. Pushpak Bhattacharya was inducted as a Member, Planning Comission Committee (Govt. of India) on "Language Policies and Technology", 2006-07.

Our students and faculty members organized various symposia and workshops, including Aayaam and Convergence (student-led) and the Symposium on Modeling and Shallow Parsing of Indian Languages organized by CFILT.

IITB CSE faculty collaborated with several international researchers by way of visiting universities, or hosting visiting researchers.

The CSE Department, IIT Bombay emerged as a major center for Natural Language Processing over the years. It has attracted large national and International funding from Government and Industry. A significant recent development (November, 2006) is the leading role the institute has assumed in conducting national level consortia projects on Machine Translation and Information Retrieval. Prime institutions of this country are partners in these endeavours.

Funding for the Laboratory for Intelligent Systems was renewed by Tata Consultancy Services, with 6 new PIs joining the lab. A new GPU-based visual computing effort was started with collaboration with nVidia at the vision, graphics, and imaging laboratory (ViGIL).

Academic Programmes

The department admitted 34 students in the B.Tech program in CSE, 58 students in the M.Tech program in CSE, 27 students in the M.Tech program in KreSIT, 04 students for the Ph.D program in CSE, 02 students for the Ph.D. Program in KReSIT and 21 students for the Dual Degree program in CSE. Degrees were awarded to 28 B.Tech students in CSE, 40 M Tech students in CSE, 23 M.Tech students in KreSIT, 15 Dual Degree students in CSE, 01 MS students in CSE, 03 Ph.D.students in CSE and 01 Ph.D. Students in KreSIT.
The department continued to receive attractive fellowships for its M.Tech, DD and Ph.D programs from the industry with 3 Ph.D., fellowhip from Infosys, 3 Ph.D. Fellowship from Philips,1 Ph.D. Fellowship from Bell Labs. 1 Ph.D. Fellowship from Microsoft Research India and 1 ph.D Assistantship from IBM. 2 M.Tech, fellowships from VijayVashee, 3 Dual Degree fellowship from Vincent Fernandes donation.
