        About Ahmedabad

        Ahmedabad the biggest city of Gujarat, lies on 23.03o North Latitude and 72.58 East Longitude on the bank of River of Sabarmati. The city is well connected by rail, roads and airways with all the important cities of the country. It is Seventh largest city of the Country. Ahmedabad is now a district head quarter and many state-level and district-level offices are located in the city. City of Ahmedabad is unique even for India, for is bleeds harmoniously as ancient heritage with a vibrant present. A model city in terms of its ideals and aspirations, what is remarkable about Ahmedabad in it’s harmony between art and industry between a reverence to the past and a vision for the future. Dubbed as the Manchester of India in the days of yore. Ahmedabad is again at the crossroads in the history of its existence. Change came in the form of an announcement of Finance Minister declaring Ahmedabad as one of the mega cities of
        India. The path to the mega city status is fraught with challenges but keeping in mind the entrepreneurial nature of the citizens of Ahmedabad the city is bearing up to take up the challenge and truly acquire the status of MEGA CITY.

        The small sector entity has a vital role to play and largely contributes to our economy, when it is compared with the larger organizational set ups particularly in a country like India. Interestingly, We never attempt for the encouragement of such promoters holding their prime share or shares in Indian economy.As we strongly admit and disclose that we largely rely on agriculture products and its utility to play with the economy and the cultivation industry aims at realizing the Industrial output in general. The larger portion remains with this Industry and the cotton growers coupled with the ginners are greatly influenced by the quantum of cotton crops and their seasonal pick up to meet with the demand of the cotton Industry. The Cotton Spinners, Weavers and processors in line with the supply chain which includes the allied material, Components, consumables and servicers, either lack for their expertise to meet with the standards prevailed or the lapse on their part to shield the technical man power. This seminar aims at providing the solution to such small enterprise under MSME, so as to come out from the scarcity ,hardship and lacuna due to inherent factors ,which are vital and pivotal as an integral solution for MSME.

        The relevance and academic/scientific /technological importance of organizing the conference/ seminar /symposium in the context of the present day national needs.

        The textile sector has been witnessing steep rise and fall despite the announcement of various policies both at the state and central level .The situation ,where by these small players have to face hardships in terms of technology transfer ,the correct utilization of plant and equipments ,labours with automated machines and appliances. The MSME caters to a larger base across different segments and the Industrial locations and can be said to be the prime source of bread and butters for a larger mass.

        The sole purpose of this seminar is to encourage those who are heading their responsibility for MSME employing people to a large extent and to help them ease their hardships and difficulties at managerial level by technical backups.This would in turn, yield awareness in areas which are never thought of by them and given weight age to overcome such lacuna lessening the burden of their productive units. It also aims at calling the students, technocrats and administrators ,who shoulder the responsibility of either guiding or influencing the Textile MSME.

        Sub Themes of the Seminar:

        01. Effective solution to combat with the lacuna of MSME

        02. The means by which MSME can be encouraged to balance level their activities.

        03. Use of Government machinery to assist MSME in order to meet with their procedural aspects and financing for new ventures and modernizing the existing set ups.

        04. The latest trends in Textile to make full use of plants, equipments infrastructure at the optimum level.

      • Date: 31/10/2015 - 01/11/2015
      • Vertical growth in the use of polymer products is responsible for the associated environmental issues. End of life treatment plays crucial role in the solution to this problem. Polymers by nature are non-degradable and stay for long time in the same state under the earth. Trials on biodegradable plastics and polymers are not convincing so far and also not economical. They are associated with many other issues like usable life and early bio-degradability. Other properties are also at question mark. Under this scenario, it is very much essential for the polymer technocrats to think a fresh from the root. Hence, polymer processing and possible maximum reclamation is an issue to be raised among the researchers. As learning from the history, it is also essential to think about the ecofriendly polymer processing, product and reclamation process. This seminar is focusing on this burning issue and provides a platform to the researchers working in this area to showcase their work amongst the intellectuals of similar area.

    • All India Seminar in Computer Engineering
      • Date: 31/10/2015 - 01/11/2015
      •      These days, it’s hard to escape the Internet. It seems like everything from ones coffee machine to your eyeglases are connected to the Web. While there’s been a lot of discussion about whether the Internet makes us dumb, a infographic explores how companies and municipalities deploying so-called smart technologies can improve our lives rather than turn us into bleary-eyed dummies. The use of machine-to-machine
        (M2M) technology is bringing “The Internet of Things” alive, SAP said. But while M2M may only conjure up thoughts of buzzing servers in a cavernous room, it has many real- world applications that affect your everyday life, from the connected home to the connected city. “The Internet of Things” includes everything from smartphone apps that control your home’s lights and temperature from afar to real-time analytics that help ease traffic congestion and city parking woes, according to SAP.

             In one of the surveys conducted, 85 percent of IT decision makers (ITDMs) think that
        M2M is a natural technological evolution and will advance the “consumerization of IT” trend. Eighty-two percent think that M2M interaction enables businesses to respond to real-world events and 89 percent think the availability of LTE and 4G will be crucial to
        M2M growth. Sixty-five percent of ITDMs think increased workforce mobility is the biggest opportunity for M2M, while another 65 percent think the major challenge in M2M is managing and analyzing the real-time data. Soon, people will interact with devices that in turn interact with data to deliver personalized products and services directly to the customer in real time. By year’s end, SAP said, mobile devices will outnumber the human population, data volume will reach 4 billion terabytes, and 90 percent of consumer-connected devices will have access to some personal cloud.
        SAP estimated that by the end of 2020, there will be 24 billion connected devices and by 2015, 35 percent of mid-to-large organizations will adopt in-memory computing.

             All India Seminar on Internet of Things is one of the most comrehensive IoT event –
        with over 4,00 attendees and many exhibitors. With a focus on monetizing the IoT revolution through bringing together ecosystem wide attendees, stakeholders and investors, Internet of Things is a unique opportunity to promote your IoT message right in the heartland of IoT development. 2014 was an important year for IoT with huge opportunities of this technology firmly being realized. Accenture’s late 2014 report predicts that 69% of consumers plan to buy an in-home device by 2019, reaffirming that consumer adoption of connected technology is on the rise. In 2015, the
        tremendous excitment around IoT is now bearing fruit in terms of concrete products and services. Now is the time to bring together the entire ecosystem in order to assess the commercial opportunities, to highlight the key challenges hindering IoT and to
        assess the range of solutions available to create a sustainable future for IoT.

             Pervasive connectivity, smart devices and demand for data testify to an Internet of Things that will continue to grow by leaps and bounds. Computing power is dropping in price while new sensors are being developed and incorporated into everyday objects,and as people buy into Internet of Things technology, economies of scale lend themselves to the creation of ever more data-centric businesses. Instrumenting and connecting devices has massive potential to deliver value, but there is need for a coordinated effort when rolling out the next generation of self-reporting paradigms. The All India Seminar on the Internet of Things – (IoT 2015), the premier forum for such efforts, to share, discuss and witness cutting edge research in all areas of development for the Internet of Things. IoT 2015 is seeking original, high impact research papers on all topics related to the development of the Internet of Things. Papers are selected on the basis of novelty, technical merit, presentation effectiveness and impact of results. Accepted papers will be published in IEI All India Seminar Proceedings.

        · Mobile IoT: novel applications of smartphone technology for generating and consuming big data. Examples include interesting new applications of on-board sensors, making use of crowd sourced data, promoting e-commerce or enabling B2B, B2C and C2C connectedness.
        · IoT device or circuit design: novel hardware that enables field intelligence and data generation, innovative concepts that enable pervasive sensing.
        · IoT applications and services: embedded field intelligence applications that challenge the state of the art in fields such as agriculture, automotive, civil & industrial Infrastructure monitoring,health care and retailing.
        · Architecture and systems design: reliability, sustainability,scalability, profitability and scope for interoperability of an IoT ecosystem; novel business models and services enabled by IoT.
        · Cloud computing and semantic web technologies: data security,
        storage and access, communication protocols, linked data and web
        semantics for interoperability among users and devices.
        · Interface and control systems: adaptive user interface design,data-informed actuation, and the interplay between the two · IoT analytics: innovative algorithms and data analysis techniques for extracting meaning and value from the Internet of Things
