Stanford to Host Engineering Symposium in India


Stanford University's School of Engineering has announced the Stanford Engineering Symposium India to be held on December 18-19, 2008 in Bangalore, India. The two-day event will provide a forum for eight distinguished Stanford faculty members in electrical engineering and computer science to meet with industry and academic leaders in India and probe India's networking future and the enabling technologies required.

The symposium will focus on innovations and research developments in the Internet, data-center networking, wireless, social networking, and enabling technologies such as silicon design and manufacturing. The program will also feature thought-provoking panel discussions with Stanford faculty and feature keynotes from Indian business and technology leaders.

"Fifty years ago, letters and phone calls were the primary modes of communication. The need for faster, more efficient and reliable communication spurred the innovation of the network, leading to a variety of novel communication modes which are ubiquitous today: email, the web, the cell phone, information sharing, data retrieval and mining and social networking. In the shift, an entire new industry was born in the Silicon Valley and elsewhere. There is another shift on the horizon. Network infrastructures in places like India could signal a fundamental move in network architectures and protocols," said Balaji Prabhakar, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University.
