Sprint Thesis Talks:
A sprint thesis talk is similar to an elevator pitch. The candidate will need to explain his/her research in exactly three minutes. A good talk will be one which -
- clearly expresses the final utility of one’s research,
- is understandable by a general CS audience (It must therefore NOT include lot of field specific jargon), and
- is entertaining and ignites curiosity in the audience.
The session will be conducted in two groups: Beginner (Early RS) and Advanced (Senior RS). There is no strict boundary between these two groups in terms of who should participate in each group. But, the general guideline is Beginner (Early RS): B.Tech., M.Tech., RS with <= 2 yrs, and Advanced (Senior RS): RS with > 2 yrs.
The competition will be carried in two stages: Prelims and Finals. Faculty Panel will choose 10 finalists from Prelims. Finalists will give a detailed presentation (now for 10 minutes) in front of eminent guests (from industry as well as reputed universities). The final winners (1 winner and 1 notable performance from each group) will receive attractive cash awards.
All research scholars who have published a paper are encouraged to present their work through a poster and, if possible, a demo. This will also be held as a competition and the winners will receive attractive cash awards.
Industry representatives as well faculty from reputed institutes may discuss with students individually regarding various opportunities in their company/lab/institute.
