2 from MD2K attend U.S.-India tech workshop

Two investigators from the Center of Excellence for Mobile Sensor Data-to-Knowledge (MD2K) will be among 12 scientists selected to participate in SC2: US-India Smart and Connected Communities Workshop, which will bring together the top technology researchers from the two countries.

The MD2K participants are MD2K Director Santosh Kumar and Mani Srivastava who leads the Center’s computation research team. Kumar is the Lillian and Morrie Moss Chair of Excellence in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Memphis, and Srivastava is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The workshop is being held June 9-11 in New Delhi, India, and is co-sponsored by the Department of Electronics and Information Technology, India, and the Division of Computer and Network Systems of the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF).

The three-day workshop is designed so that participants can brainstorm and identify potential areas of Indo-U.S. research collaborations in areas such as Smart Cities, 5G Wireless, Big Data and the Internet of Things as they apply to three areas Smart Healthcare, Smart Energy and Disaster Response.
