Global Innovation Challenges and its Impact on Academia and Industry
The Computer Society of India – Pune Chapter (CSI-Pune), the Software Exporters Association of Pune (SEAP), Persistent Systems and the Board of Studies of Computer Engineering, Pune University, present a lecture on the impact of global trends in technology on academia and Industry.
The keynote address is by Dr. Raghunath Shevgaonkar, the new Vice Chancellor of Pune University. Until recently Dr. Shevgaonkar was a Professor at IIT-Bombay. He played many roles there, including HoD of the Electrical Engineering Department, Dean of Resource Mobilization, and all of this was in addition to the research that resulted in over 130 conference publications and journals. He has also written two books. For more information about Dr. Shevgaonkar’s background, see his profile page on the IIT-Bombay website.
Given his background, I am hoping for good things from the lecture, and from him, for University of Pune.
Other people expected at this event are: Anand Deshpande, CEO of Persistent, M.D. Agarwal, VP, CSI and CIO BPCL, and Deepak Shikarpur.
