CNI Summer School 2021

CNI Summer School 2021

The Centre for Networked Intelligence at Indian Institute of Science (IISc) is organizing its inaugural three-day CNI Summer School on 5-6-7th August 2021.

The fully online Summer School will include lectures by IISc faculty members as well as hands-on lab sessions on computer networks. The lecture sessions will consist of five lectures on advanced topics in Networks and Wireless Communications and one session on IoT MAC/chip design (along with a demo). Hands-on lab sessions will be conducted using a CNI’s cloud-based online lab platform.

The Summer School is targeted at 4th Year Bachelors’/dual-degree students or Masters’/PhD programs in engineering (ECE/CS/EE or related streams). A (free) registration is required for participation in the Summer School. Lecture participation will be through Zoom and YouTube live stream, and there is no limit on number of lecture session registrations. Since we have limited slots (first-come-first-serve basis) for lab sessions, we request that the registration for the lab sessions be approved/recommended by your advisor or a faculty member from your department.

You may register for the CNI Summer School by filling up the registration form.

Please email us at contact.cni@iisc.ac.in in case of difficulties in registering.
