GISMA Student Wins IFLA Competition

14.01.2010
Vishwanathan Iyer, student of the full-time MBA program at GISMA Business School, is one of the 6 winners of the INFOCOM Future Leadership Awards (IFLA) 2010.

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.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
