Industry Interaction Seminar

ECE Industry Interaction Seminar (IIS@ECE) is a new seminar series where a distinguished speaker from the local tech industry in Bangalore will present some interesting problems that excites his or her company. Each talk will be followed by a short discussion session, a student round-table, and of course, coffee in the ECE hut. The idea is to provide an informal platform for interaction between the industry and the researchers at IISc.
