IISc CDS Alumni Reunion, 14 Dec, 2019

2 Dec 19    Yogesh Simmhan

IISc is hosting the annual Alumni Reunion on Dec 14 and 15, 2019, and Institute has put together an exciting programme.

As part of this, the CDS department is hosting an event for our graduates (CDS and SERC) on Dec 14 from 1030am-1230pm at the CDS/SERC building. You will get a chance to see how the department has grown since you passed out with new faculty and improved facilities, interact with the current students to share your wisdom, network with other batchmates, get some memorabilia, etc.

  • STARTING 10:30AM [Venue: CDS/SERC Room 202]
  • Quick introductions by attendees, 10 mins [All Alumini]
  • Introduction to CDS, 10 mins [Sashikumaar Ganesan, Chair]
  • Brief Talk by select Alumni and Panel discussion with CDS students, 30mins [Moderated by Yogesh Simmhan]
  • History of SERC/CDS: A Perspective, 15 mins [Jayant Haritsa]
  • Coffee/Snack break, 25mins [4th Floor Foyer]
  • The SERC Facility, 30mins [Sathish Vadhiyar, SERC Auditorium, 4th Floor]

We also have instituted CDS Alumni Achievement Awards to recognize outstanding professional and service contributions. This has been given to Jay Yagnik (VP/Fellow, Google; M.Tech., SERC,2005) and to Prof. Srikanta Bedathur(Associate Professor, IIT-Delhi; Ph.D., SERC, 2006) in this inaugural edition.

We really hope you can attend – whether you passed out earlier this year or 2 decades back! Prior registration with IISc is required to attend the full event, or an RSVP to join us just at CDS. You can also turn up unannounced 🙂 We have also setup an official LinkedIn group for our department alumni that we encourage you to join.
