Electronics Makers – 2017

July 1, 2017 - July 2, 2017

“Electronics Makers – 2017”

Jointly organized by Industry relations-IEEE India Council, Centre for Embedded Product Design, Centre for Electronics Design and Technology, Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology


JULY 1-2, 2017


Call for Participation

Industry professionals as well as students are welcome to submit their work to this two-day conference, which aims at creating a platform for innovation and Do-It-Yourself electronics.  It is an oft-quoted statistic that by 2020, India will spend more than $400B in importing electronic technology/products. Do-It-Yourself and “Make-In-India” will surely help in bringing down this number and creating jobs in India in the core sectors of Electronics, Electrical, and Computer Engineering. Initiatives such as Open Source hardware and software as well as availability of low-cost semiconductor products are accelerating the growth of DIY. In this conference, the aim will be manifold – to discuss problems that DIYers tend to face, to provide networking opportunities for DIYers to help one another, and to provide a forum to showcase some of the recent innovations in Electronics DIY space.  Prizes will be provided to 3 best entries!


Prior registration is mandatory – please FILL OUT FORM no later than May 25.  There is a participation fee to cover the costs of the conference. The fee structure is mentioned in the form. Please calculate the fee applicable to you and send a cheque or DD made out to ‘Centre for Embedded Product Design, NSIT’ and send it to Dr. Tarun Rawat, Electronics and Communication Engineering Division, Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, Sector-3, Dwarka.
