“Standards Driven Research” Online Workshop at the NCC2021 (July 29, 2021: Online)

July 29 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI) has been promoting the concept of “Standards Driven Research” in order to synergise the research in our technology institutes with creation of an IP pool that can be translated to Standard Essential Patents (SEPs). Achieving prominence in Global Standards Development is a key indicator of emergence of India from a “late consumer of mature technology” to becoming an “globally competitive innovator in emerging technologies”. TSDSI is actively working to establish collaborations between the research community across academia and industry/start-ups.

TSDSI is organising a workshop under the aegis of NCC 2021 to encourage researchers from Academic Institutes to develop and contribute their research ideas into formal standards development activities at National and Global levels. The workshop will feature keynotes, expert talks, and panel discussion on examples of standards driven research initiatives and emerging opportunities.

About NCC2021: The National Conference on Communications (NCC) is arguably the most important national conference today in the area of communications, signal processing and networks. The NCC is India’s premier annual conference organized by the Joint Telematics Group (JTG) consisting of IITs and IISc. The JTG is a coordinating body whose main role is to facilitate the conduct of the annual conference and closer interaction of academia, industry, and government in the broad area of communications.

In a span of little more than two decades, the conference has acquired substantial recognition and is now widely known in many countries overseas. NCC 2021, the 27th edition of NCC, will be held online for the first time, is being jointly organized by IIT Kanpur and IIT Roorkee.
