Floss for Research and Innovation

Workshop on “FLOSS for Research and Innovation- A Collaborative Approach”
In the present technological era there is an increased penetration of the computing tools and techniques into modern science and technology, education. The technological research is facing challenges of not just teaching the conceptual models of Science & Technology but also equip, train and enable students, researchers and industrial work force to handle these in the furtherance of their goals and objectives.

An important challenge to this happens to be the ready availability of such tools, ability to study and modify them suitably to the evolving scientific and technological tempers at both individual and institutional levels. Fostering this scientific and research temper, enabling and empowering the individuals, Swecha in association with FSMI organized its First National Convention for Academics and Research (NCAR-2010). In its succession on the eve of teachers’ day celebrations, Swecha is organizing the a two-day workshop on Research and Innovation.

This workshop provides a platform for collaboration and sharing the ideas of innovation and various approaches for FLOSS based research. The present situation of digital barriers like infrastructure, computing restrictions, and preparing ourselves for future tasks will be the main goal.
