Keynote 1: Challenges and Opportunities for
Innovations in IT based Services
VIJAYNAGAR 1                                                                       March 25, 2011 09:00 – 10:15

IT based Services are sometimes viewed as mundane, less challenging than IT product development. In this
talk, we describe enormous opportunities for innovation in delivering information technology based services.
We start by describing the tremendous inefficiencies, estimated to be about $15 Trillion, in how the world
operates today (e.g. in industries like transportation and healthcare), some of which can be eliminated by
infusing more instrumentation and intelligence into these systems. We describe several unique challenges
faced in emerging economies like India, and present examples of developing solutions with those unique
requirements in mind. One of the examples we present is Spoken Web, our attempt to create a new world
wide web, accessible over the (mobile) phone network, for the masses in countries like India. Finally, we
describe several opportunities for improving efficiency, quality and value from delivering various kinds of
services globally (an area of unique strength for India), and the interesting computer science and
multidisciplinary problems that arise in the context of pursuing those opportunities.

The Web is a vast repository of human knowledge. A grand challenge is to mine the web to build
comprehensive databases of entities (e.g., people, places, things), relationships, and facts. Building such
knowledge bases involves four key steps: Content acquisition, Information extraction from Web pages, De-
duplication of extracted information, and Integration of information for the same entity. In this talk, I will give
an overview of the key steps, describe the Vertex information extraction system developed at Yahoo!
Bangalore, and outline a new technique for unsupervised information extraction exploiting content
redundancy. I’ll highlight the associated research challenges throughout the talk.

Tutorial: Text Analytics
VIJAYNAGAR 2                                                                           March 25, 2011 10:30 – 12:20

It is widely believed that over 80% of the business-relevant information is present in unstructured form,
mainly text. Text Analytics allows analysis to be done on the textual data. The textual data could be in the
form of email, discussion forums, survey feedback, CRM systems, etc.
The growth of the web in the form of blogs, twitter, social networking sites has changed the dynamics of the
industry. The increasing online content has influenced users' buying behavior. The consumer is no longer
swayed by marketers, instead relying on user comments for a particular product or service. So these
comments are insightful to the manufactures of these products; text analytics can help in the analysis of the
customer sentiment.
In this discussion, we shall cover the basics of text processing and its challenges, and the techniques used in
Information Extraction from text. We also look at applications of Text Analytics like Sentiment Analysis about
products from blogs/discussion forums. We also look at how Text Analytics can be used on information in

Workshop 1: Art and Science of Design
VIJAYNAGAR 1                                                                     March 25, 2011 15:15 – 18:00

Do you think all of us who are geeks understand what Design is? Think again. Have you ever found out that
Design is subjective? Have you ever thought of appreciating Design from any other perspective than that of
yours? Understanding tools, languages, algorithms to create graphics is the Science of Design. Understanding
how to create and communicate with graphics in a creative and impressive way is the Art of Design.
Communicating with graphics is Visual Communication. Only with the right mixture of Science and Art in our
designs can we create magic! In this session, I will cover the theory of colors, layout, visual communication,
tools, methods and techniques used in digital art in today's world ranging from - Graphic Design for Web and
Print, Digital Painting, Video Editing, Post-production, Audio and a lot more.

India, with its history, culture, heritage and especially its vast stores of knowledge, is arguably one of the
world's greatest living civilisations. In time however, much has changed, especially amongst the younger
generations. As iconoclastic winds of change blow in from the West, one wonders about the preservation of
Indian heritage. Still, in today's forward-looking society, the very thing that is threatening our past mightwell
be the answer. Tangible and abstract heritage perspectives can now be brought to the fore with advanced
technology and 'E3iT'. Going beyond paper and scans with augmented reality, 3D and haptic-response
systems, E3iT is an immersive virtual "time machine". Aptly titled Digital Hampi: From Ruins to Glory, the
project is set up with a touchscreen and head-mounted display and will allow people to "walk" through the
ancient city, looking through the eyes of the citizens of that glorious ancient empire.

The advent of Ajax saw a sea of changes in the field of web applications. With HTML5 we are reinventing
web-based applications and challenging the desktop applications. Two key necessity of accelerating use of
HTML5 in mainstream Web development is to deal with (1) Automatic support in popular Web Authoring
toolkits, and (2). Co-Existence with Legacy Web Content. This second part of HTML5 tutorial will deal with
these two topics.
The browser as a platform has become a reality as Google released their Chrome OS. With different browser
in the market it is difficult to design application based on different browser. This session will illustrate use of
Google Web Toolkit (GWT) AJAX toolkit to create HTML5 based applications.
HTML5 specification is evolving on a daily basis and it is designed such that old browsers can safely ignore the
new constructs. However, developers need to put additional efforts to degrade nicely for browsers which do
not support the new features. So the latter part of this session also focuses on techniques for detecting
HTML5 features using JavaScript. It explains how developers can use custom JavaScript libraries like
Modernizr and how developers can build their own toolkit using jQuery for such detection.

Level sets, pre-images of scalar values and also called isosurfaces, are extensively used for the visualization of
3D scalar fields. The Reeb graph is an abstract representation of the topology of all level sets of a scalar
function. It is obtained by mapping each connected component of the level sets to a point. The Reeb graph
serves as an effective user interface for selecting meaningful level sets and finds several other applications
including topology-based shape matching, topological cleaning of surface models, surface segmentation,
parametrization, and effective transfer function design for volume rendering. In this talk, I will first define the
Reeb graph and describe its role in various graphics and visualization applications. Next, I will present several
approaches for computing the Reeb graph and discuss their relative merits. I will also present an effective
layout scheme for Reeb graphs that enables it application to interactive exploration of 3D scalar fields.
