The event provided major visibility to UNT and also provided a student recruitment ground for UNT. 

ISED 2010 brought together researchers and experts from industry and academia around the world to advance the science, engineering and technology of electronic system design. The December event included presentation of scholarly papers and invited expert presentations, plus educational components in the Workshop for Engineering Scholars. The workshop’s purpose is to prepare students for study at UNT.

Mohanty said that ISED 2010 served as a leading forum for dissemination and sharing of the state of the art, and the new advances and shifts in the various theoretical and experimental aspects of VLSI design, and analog/RF/digital systems.

The event ISED was well covered by several leading newspapers including The Times of India, The New Indian Express, and Orissa Today.

Indian faculties, students and engineers from the industry, the national institutes such as IITs, and from various state and private engineering colleges also participated. Major speakers included: 

  • Mohanty Priyadarsan Patra of Intel Corporation USA
  • Gopal Nayak of IIIT Bhubaneswar
  • Durga Misra of New Jersey Institute of Technology
  • Jacob Abraham of the University of Texas at Austin
  • Praveen Vishakantaiah, Intel India president
  • Karthikeyan Natarajan, Global Head of Mahindra-Satyam IES

The invited talks were delivered by representatives of Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of California Davis and Texas A&M University.

UNT provided travel support for eight invited and student speakers with an NSF grant to Mohanty, whose research involves nanoscale device and system modeling.  

Mohanty thanks Vish Prasad, vice president for research and economic development, for providing the sponsorship for ISED 2010. The next edition of the symposium, ISED 2011 will be held at Kochi, India. Mohanty plans a major presence for UNT there, as well.  -  Submitted by Saraju Mohanty, associate professor of Computer Science and Engineering, College of Engineering
