IFLA, under the aegis of the main event (INFOCOM conference & exhibition), is an endeavor to identify and groom the young global leaders of the future. It is India's most prestigious open paper writing competition for management students across the globe, where papers are invited from first and final year students from selected Business Schools across the world.
The six best entries are selected by a distinguished jury. All top six winners will be asked to present their papers on "Innovation in a downturn" at the INFOCOM 09-10 Conference in Calcutta on January 21 this year.
The theme "Innovation in a downturn" focused on innovative strategies and ideas that would lead the way forward and create the innovation upturn for global or tions and economies from the current global crisis.
"This award provides young aspiring business students like me an opportunity to present our work to a variety of business leaders, members of the Indian government and the industry in general", explains Iyer this important experience. "Personally, I am thrilled that this endeavor of mine got my alma mater, GISMA Business School, to join the list of distinguished Business Schools such as UC Berkeley, INSEAD, Instituto de Empressa, Stockholm School of Economics and Technical University of Munich, as one of the international winners to have made their mark in this global event over the last decade."
All participants had 8 weeks to write their paper. The research process was intriguing, the 27-years-old electrical engineer remembers, "given the fact that there is a vast amount of research being done on approaches to innovation during recessions, right from the great depression in the 1930s to the dotcom crash of the 2000s."
Information about INFOCOM:
INFOCOM is the annual Information and Communication Technology (ICT) conference and exhibition, initiated in 2002 under the banner of Business world, from the house of ABP Pvt Ltd. Over the last seven episodes of the event, it has emerged to be one of the largest platforms in the country where the IT experts of the corporate world interact with business users and policy makers with an objective to empower businesses with IT for greater advantage. This exhibition is also the largest congregation of ICT professionals, buyers-sellers, corporate leaders, academicians, visionaries, and policymakers in India. Business World, coming from the house of ABP Pvt. Limited (one of India's oldest and biggest media conglomerate) is the fastest growing, largest-selling and most-read business magazine in India.

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
