( one day Workshop )
The Workshop will bring together industry analysts, engineers, academics, managers, and policy makers in the telecom and Internet sectors, to determine what level of per-line investment the market can sustain if it is to expand to 201M lines, and what technological advances are needed to make this happen. It is a must for anyone who wishes to get a real grip on what can make the telecom revolution happen.
The Special Session, featuring a keynote address by Shri Suresh Prabhu, M.P., will try to forge a direction to address some of the power sector's most pressing problems, such as automated metering, billing, line disconnection/re-instatement, and detection of pilferage.
The Concluding Session of NCC 2003 will take a look at whether some of the tools of ICT, such as streaming multimedia, can be used to reach a large audience in an attempt to fill the gap between conventional engineering curricula and what industry is looking for.
The paper sessions are wide-ranging, encompassing all areas of current research interest - a heartening aspect of communications research in India today.
The session titles include:
A number of Indian companies and laboratories are developing new products in the ICT arena. NCC 2003 will showcase the development aspects of some select products in a product session.
