Title: Solving Fascinating Modern Day Problems at the Interface of Economics and Computer Science Using Game Theory and Mechanism Design
Abstract: How do you realize social goals in a modern society consisting of self-interested individuals? This is a question that faces all social planners and organizations all the time. If we solve this problem satisfactorily, it has far-reaching implications for creating robust solutions for numerous problems at the interace of economics and computer science, such as electronic commerce, online auctions, public procurements, Internet advertising, social network monetization, crowdsourcing, and intelligent transportation. A perfect answer to this question is still elusive, however the discipline of game theory and mechanism design has enabled significant strides to be made in this direction. This talk will bring out how game theory and mechanism design can be used to create imaginative solutions for the above problems.
12:10 PM Foundation Lecture
Dr. Manindra Agrawal, IIT Kanpur
Title: The P <> NP Hypothesis
Abstract: Discovery of a solution to a problem is often more difficult than verifying the correctness of a given solution. This difference in formally captured by the classes P and NP: P contains all problems whose solutions can be efficiently discovered, and NP contains all problems whose solutions can be efficiently verified. While it is believed that P does not equal NP, there is no proof known despite intensive efforts over last 40 years. In fact, two major barriers have been discovered that disallow a number of proof strategies for separating the two classes. In this talk, I will introduce the problem and discuss attempts to solve it.
01:00 PM Lunch

Title: Internet of Things: Challenges and Issues.
Abstract: Networking Industry is looking forward to the next revolution in the form of Internet of Things (IoT). This includes both equipment vendors like Cisco and networking services companies like Google. IoT will result in computing everywhere and the so called fog computing. This talk covers the key developments in this area including new research challenges, and issues.
02:45 PM ACCS Keynote
Rober Aitken, ARM India
Title: Circuit Technology and the Internet of Things.
Abstract: We live in an interconnected world. Computing power once reserved for server rooms now resides in our pockets. Tablets now outsell PCs. As marked as these changes have been, we are now entering a new era of vastly greater connectivity, where people interact with the world around them in entirely new ways. The Internet of Things is in its infancy, so predictions of precisely what it will become are dangerous, but several things are clear. First, the leaf nodes of the network will share some device and technology properties in terms of cost and computing capability, but also analog and wireless functionality. These nodes will interact with people and with the cloud. The “little data” of these interactions needs to integrate seamlessly with the “big data” of the world around them. The trust, security and service components of these interactions lead to further device and technology requirements. This talk looks at the trends and discusses some likely paths forward.
03:30 PM Tea Break
03:45 PM Panel Discussion- HPCC
India is rapidly becoming a major consumer of advanced computing, cloud and storage – all driven by the rapidly proliferating number of users and devices that connect to the Internet. The explosion of data usage, driven largely by a young and Internet-savvy population who access the Internet via the ubiquitous smart phone; the vast amounts of user content being shared from India, all of this is exploding by the day. The population of Social Media users, the increasing reliance on advanced compute for complex calculations such as localized weather forecast, crop monitoring etc. are just some of the factors driving this consumption of compute-storage-communications. The country has not focused enough on building these building blocks indigenously. There were some notable attempts in the past, with major advances made in the area of parallel and grid computing and today we are critically dependent on multinational players to provide India with these services and solutions.
This Panel Discussion will debate the creation of an ecosystem for HPC in India -- the intent being to bring together VLSI Architects, System and Software Architects, System Integrators and also providers of services like Cloud etc. HPC is becoming a critical ingredient for processing the large amounts of data that India is both generating and consuming.

Title: Design and Deployment of IEEE 802.15.4 ("Zigbee") Networks for Internet of Things Applications
Abstract: In the context of Cyber Physical Systems and the Internet of Things, there is a growing need for the design and deployment of multi-hop wireless relay networks for connecting embedded sensors to the Internet. We have considered the following problem. Given the locations of the sensors, the traffic that each sensor generates, the quality of service (QoS) requirements, and potential relay locations, place a small number of relays at some of the potential locations so as to realize a multi-hop wireless relay network that achieves the desired QoS for sensor generated traffic. In this talk, we will provide an overview of our research on algorithms for addressing such a problem. Field experiences with our lab developed system, called SmartConnect, will also be provided.
12:15 PM ACCS Keynote
Dr. Rajat Moona, CDAC
Title: HPC: Past, Present and Future
Abstract: High Performance Computing (HPC) plays an important role in advancement of scientific and engineering domains. By taking a walk through from past to future, looking at the evolution of the HPC, we see interesting technological transformations and challenges being addressed at global and at national level. Supercomputing moved from specialized hardware to the usage of general purpose processors in the 90’s and later to Graphic Processors (GPUs).
Analysing the applications of HPC, we observe three categories viz. 1) 1-D Applications like speech processing, 2) 2-D applications like image processing and 3) 3-D applications like gaming, movie processing and fluid dynamics etc. Scientific applications are growing and we see a need for 4-D applications as well, for molecular dynamics, drug discovery, etc. This poses greater challenges to HPC infrastructure where blade servers would not be able to scale up for meeting such demands and calls in for the need of application specific machines.
Looking at the future of Exascale computing research, challenges with respect to power, frequency and memory needs to be addressed.
01:00 PM Lunch
02:00 PM ACCS Keynote
Dr. Rajeev Gopalakrishna
Title: If Everything is Connected to Something, Will Anything be Secure and Private? A Perspective on Internet of Things.
Abstract: Internet of Things promises to connect billions of things which will generate yottabytes of data and create trillions of dollars in new revenue opportunities. In this envisioned grand scheme of things where everything is connected to something, but nothing is re-architected for the paradigm shift, will anything be secure and private?
This talk will highlight challenges and opportunities with embracing security, privacy and trust when our body, house, car and city are always-on-always-connected and perhaps have their own Facebook and Twitter accounts.
02:40 PM ACCS Keynote
Nandam Sreenivasa Vithal, Director Engineering, INEDA Systems
Title: Big Data Analytics in the realm of IOT – Real-time isn’t it?!
Abstract: The Internet of Things (IOT) is transforming the world into a any-to-any connected world, generating new patterns of device utilities in life, creating opportunities for new sources of revenue, smarter interactions among individuals, customers, and greater efficiencies. However, this trend introduces new technical challenges. How secure are these connect intelligent devices via the Internet or the connection media, how to capture data at the “point of action,” and analyze huge volumes of machine-generated data in real time. Let us attempt and visualize how this so called fog computing looks like in terms of the network of these devices, the back end server network, the hardware and the software framework needed to handle the tsunami of data, analyze and take appropriate actions. Also explore from architectural point of view the viability of hardware/software and the kind of applications IOT enables.
