PUNE, India, March 2 -- Shri Badri Narayan Patra, Hon’ble Minister(S), Higher Education, Sports & Youth Services inaugurated the 3rd National Symposium on “High Performance Computing in Academia & Beyond” on February 21, 2012 at Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India and said, “India has the potential to be a global technology leader. Indian industry is competing globally in various sectors of Science and Engineering. A critical issue for the future success of state & Indian industry is the growth of engineering and research education in India. High Performance Computing power is key to scientific & engineering leadership, industrial competitiveness, and national security.
I am happy that C-DAC has taken the initiative in conducting national awareness programs in High Performance computing for the Scientific and Engineering community and welcome to establish High Performance Computing Labs in all the universities and colleges. This shall help in capacity building and act as a computational research centers for the scientific & academic programs which will address & catalyse the impact of high quality engineering education and high-end computational work for the research community in the eastern region. It will also promote research and teaching by integrating leading edge, high performance computing and visualization for the faculties, students, graduate and post graduates of the institute and will provide solutions to many of our most pressing national challenges.
With the various research programs conducted on the High Performance Computational center Odisha will be producing skilled manpower to meet the increasing demands of the industry thus providing employable opportunities.”
Group Coordinator and Head of HPC Solutions Group, Goldi Misra stated that, "A Memorandum of Association (MoU) is to be signed soon between CDAC, Pune and BPUT, Odisha. The partnering organizations shall collaborate in various key areas of High Performance Computing to equip future graduates and post graduate students address the numerous requirements of niche sectors in multiple domains thereby resulting in an increased competitiveness globally."
On the sidelines of the National Symposium, Shri Abhishek Das, Senior Scientist, C-DAC, Pune said, “We are overwhelmed with the large scale participation of senior members from various institutions under BPUT and other universities due to the visionary efforts of Hon’ble Ministry and Heads of Academic institutions. Hereon we encourage that the participants disseminate the experiences and propagate the High Performance Computing culture among budding engineers in their respective institutions”.
Dr Pradeep K Sinha, Senior Director (HPC), C-DAC said, “Odisha has a great potential for Research & Development with its strong academic culture and current pace of development. Already, the IT industry has started recognizing the state as an emerging IT hub, and I am confident that this kind of National Awareness coupled with Faculty Development Programs will lead to several positive outcomes both for the citizens and the state. The students of Odisha have good talents, and they will be contributing to the nation development which will add further vibrancy to the state. While striving for its own growth and excellence, C-DAC is committed to sharing its skills, expertise and experience with the research and academic institutions across the state, India & World. Lakshya (www.lakshyatraining.org), C-DAC center at Bhubaneswar is striving towards fulfilling the objective”
