Report of 10th PG Day

The Postgraduate Research Symposium (PG Day) is an essential event in our department, which provides a formal way for postgraduate students to present and share their research ideas, works, and experiences. This year the 10th (PG Day) was carried out on 31st August & 1st September, 2009.

There were totally 18 papers coming from the PhD and MPhil candidates of the department. Presentation was carried through as single track which covers Pattern Recognition, Information System, Data Mining, Database, Networking and Optimization. We also had a keynote talk named as "You Can Build a Smarter Planet", given by Jenny Li from IBM, and a distinguished lecture named as "How Precise Documentation Allows Information Hiding to Reduce Software Complexity and Increase its Agility", given by Prof. David Lorge Parnas from University of Limerick & McMaster University.
