Tutorial 1

Recommendation systems using Data mining techniques for Educational Domain

Tutorial Speaker

Assistant Professor , CSE dept, Ramaiah Institute of Technology

Dr.K G Srinivasa
Associate Professor,ISE HOD, CBP Government Engineering College, New Delhi.

Dean & Professor, School of Computer Science and Engineering, Periyar Manimmai University, Thanjavur,Tamilnadu

Nowadays all Educational standardising bodies like NBA and ISO are concentrating on improving the outcome of educational institutions. For that these Educational standardising bodies have given bench mark of certain criteria to Educational organizations. The organizations which are all meeting the criteria are accredited by these standardising bodies. The stake holders like students, faculty and Job providers also looking for the students with higher outcomes of education. To validate the outcomes of students, the stake holders choose the institutions which are accredited by educational standardising bodies. In this tutorial we are going to demonstrate ,the historical data collected about students, faculty and educational organization can be analysed using data mining techniques. The analysed information can be used further to provide recommendations to improve the efficiency and performance of students, faculty and the Institution. In turn, the outcome of them also can be improved to meet the need of stake holders in highest level
Motivation and rationale
The tutorial will introduce statistics and data mining techniques required to validate and accurately report results. Topics will cover how Educational data is being used to transform education. Specifically, we will demonstrate how exploratory data analysis, data mining, predictive analytics, and visualization techniques are being applied to educational data to improve learning and scale insights driven from student's records.

Tutorial 2

Design Challenges in the Wireless Sensor Communications Networks

Tutorial Speaker

Prof. Vivek S. Deshpande,
Chair, IEEE Communication Society, Pune,
Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune University,

Now-a-days Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and/or IoT plays predominant role in the cloud communication domain. The main parts of these types of systems are Wireless Sensor Networks, Cloud and communication networks. The data to be disseminated from multiple sources to the destination base station or sink is having vital significance. There are many problems with which data can be conveyed up to the sink. The sink is connected to cloud via communication network. The congestion, reliability, delay, fairness, etc. are of main concern. These can be treated as Quality of Service parameters that govern the performance of the CPS. Above all the Energy s consumption is the main constrain for WSN node. It is very difficult to obtain good QoS by keeping energy consumption low. Even if response of one of QoS parameter will depends on the many other QoS parameters. We have to take care of all QoS parameters to improve the performance of the wireless sensor networks. This Quality of Services may improve the application base of the CPS. With the QoS parameters the data dissemination along with energy optimization is get affected. We have to check the performance of the WSN against the QoS metrics for different data inputs. This may contain the periodic- non periodic data, event based data, transient or busty data. This may lead to new researcher to verify their results and excel their research work accordingly.


Mr. Vivek S. Deshpande, Dean, Research & Development, MIT College of Engineering, holds Bachelors and Masters of Engineering in Electronics and Telecommunications from Pune University. Currently he is doing a research in Wireless Sensor Networks, embedded systems and High Performance Computer Networks. He is a Chair of IEEE Communication Society, Pune Chapter and Member of IEEE Computer Society, India Council.

Specific topics of interest and Research: Wireless sensor networks, Body area networks, Quality of Service, Algorithm/Protocol development, Mobile Communications and mobility in WSN, Wireless Communications and networking in WSN, Information and Communications technologies in WSN, Simulation, Modeling and analysis and performance evaluations, Network management and services, Health care and home networking, Reviews and Applications: Social, health, sports, environmental, etc.

The Rs.25 lacks of funded projects “Highway Traffic Monitoring Systems (HTMS)” phase-I is done under his guidance. He guided the 10 person’s team of technical researchers.
