Over the years, INDICON has established a reputation for publication of high – quality research and for the opportunities for interaction and networking that it provides, so much so that today, it attracts the best of research and researchers in the country, in the areas of Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering. The Proceedings of all the previous editions of INDICON have been SCOPUS-indexed as well as included in IEEExplore.

Pre-Conference and Tutorials have been scheduled on December 15, where we hope to bring some of the best researchers in different areas to deliver talks / sessions of around three hours each, on topics of their choice and of relevance to the engineering fraternity. From this year, the MV Chauhan Best Student Paper Contest of the IEEE India Council is being integrated with INDICON. Plans are also being made for Best Paper Awards in each of the above tracks, as determined by the Track Chairs and Co-Chairs. There will be a number of Keynote Addresses and Plenary Sessions, with a few international speakers already lined up. A Research Scholars’ Symposium is also being scheduled along with an exhibition by various industries.
