Well, just because I haven’t posted in a while, doesn’t mean in anyway I am whiling away my time. 🙂
For starters, ACM Student Chapter Chairmanship is starting to get really hectic now, especially with our annual fest, Quest this weekend. Over that I just finished a week of mid-semester examinations, and am glad whatever results I have received so far are satisfactory. Couple that with quite an amount of self-study, over 30 ICPC problems accepted since the 50-mark post and some exploration in Mac OS and FOSS, I am surprised I even managed to get most of this work done…
Talking about Quest, this year we, on the recommendation of ex-chairman Sandip “Sandy” Dev, have invited Dr. Anu Vaidyanathan, and boy are we glad we did! This lady could be the embodiment of the ACM committee hopes and dreams for the year! She was actively involved in undergraduate research, has enough research papers to publish her own journal, has a record for the fastest Ph.D and is a superb Tri-athlete!! Whew….she makes my schedule seem like a walk in the park. 😛
Dr. Anu will be talking about Mobile and Pervasive Computing, two very up-and-coming fields in Computer Science and I hope that if you are reading this, you will give a serious thought about coming for this seminar. It’s on Sunday, the 9th of October at 11:30 a.m. in the Computer Department Seminar Hall.
Well, that’s all for now, and hopefully I should have some cool stuff to publish the next time I post.
