RISE 2019

IIITB has been conducting its Research & Innovation Conference (RISE) every year for the past 2 years during the month of Feb. This year again, the 3rd edition of RISE Conference is scheduled between 14-16 Feb 2019 at IIITB Campus.

RISE stands for Research & Innovation, Society & Entrepreneurship and this conference is intended to showcase IIITB's focus & contribution across these dimensions.


14th Feb: The IMACX Nova (Innovation & Entrepreneurship Track) 

As an academic incubator nurturing innovations & entrepreneurship, our role is to create "Responsible Citizens of the Future" - develop the right mindset for young researchers, innovators & entrepreneurs to engage with the world. The focus of this day is to encourage Researchers, Innovators & Entrepreneurs to explore new domains & geographies, understand challenges and offer breakthrough solutions. On this day, we are launching "The IMACX Nova" with an intent to identify, nurture and create Star Innovators & Entrepreneurs.

14th Feb: Ph.D. Colloquium (Research Track)

This is an event wherein research papers are presented by the research scholars who are currently pursuing Ph.D. at IIITB. These papers are selected based on the reviews of extended abstracts. The idea is to bring together researchers from all research domains under one roof and cross pollinate research ideas across disciplines.


15th Feb: The IMACX Summit (Innovation & Entrepreneurship Track)

The focus of our 2019 IMACX Summit is in the area of Digital Social Innovation solutions - the intersection of Technology and Society. The Summit intends to bring under one roof various stakeholders - startups, IIITB researchers and corporate sponsors - for possible collaboration and to address the pressing challenges faced by our society, through research-led social innovations.

16th Feb: Open House (Research Track)

This event is intended to provide an opportunity to individuals, such as the undergraduate students from colleges and Institutions and corporate employees to visit our campus and interact with our faculty and research scholars. Faculty members will be present to interact with whoever is interested to discuss about their areas of research. Poster sessions  and Demos will be organized by students from various disciplines of IIIT-B starting from iMTech to Ph.D. The objective of the Open House is to demonstrate the nature of research problems and projects being tackled at IIIT-B, so as to attract individuals interested in academic or research careers to work with IIIT-B, as students, project staff, faculty, visiting scholars, or collaborators, for doing high-quality research.
