We would like to encourage the best students studying
at engineering colleges in India to attend the
conference, through travel scholarships provided on a
merit basis. The conference will provide students an
exposure to the research going on at various places
worldwide, as well as an opportunity to meet a number
of leading researchers in the computing area. We hope
this will help those students who desire to continue
their post-graduate education, as well as those who are
studying at a post-graduate/research level.
