I-CARE 2013, 5th IBM Collaborative Academia Research Exchange, IIT Delhi & IIIT-Delhi, New Delhi, October 17 - 19, 2013

Following the success of I-CARE Conferences in past, IBM Research – India in association with IBM India University Relations, IIIT Delhi and IIT Delhi announces the 5th IBM Collaborative Academia Research Exchange (I-CARE) Conference to be held in Delhi during October 17-19, 2013. IBM has a long-running tradition of research collaboration with our colleagues in the academia. The goal of IBM's Collaborative Research Initiatives is to establish strong partnerships with the university ecosystem and ensure open innovation as a means to respond to our changing world.

This year, we invite participation in a number of programs and challenges:

Research Showcase (Proceeding to be published with ACM Digital Library)

We solicit original papers on a wide range of areas in Computer Science. We particularly encourage the submission of position papers that describe novel research directions and work that is in its formative stages, and papers about practical experiences and lessons learned from experimentation. Submit your papers (no longer than 4 pages) in one of the following tracks:

Authors of selected papers will be invited for presentation in the form of poster. We plan to have the proceedings published through ACM and have it available in ACM Digital library.

Winter Schools

After the success of winter schools in I-CARE 2012, we offer 2 days extensive class in the areas:

These schools are suitable for both people without previous knowledge of these areas and people who would like to grow their expertise in this area. The intended target audience is graduate students, who are interested in learning about the current trends in this area. In particular, it will be helpful for Ph.D. students in their early stages who are trying to define their dissertation topic in a related area.

Workshop on Paper Writing

This workshop will focus on the two main aspects of paper writing: the Research Methodology for identifying a problem and solving it, and Publishing, which involves documenting it as conference or journal paper, and also presenting it to a research audience.


Want to change this world? Have great ideas to make this world work better? Creating technologies to drive our future? I-CARE 2013 gives you a platform to share and pitch your technical idea with the Researchers & Student community in the form of videos. The video should describe the idea, its relevance to a real world problem, and description of the technical challenges, innovative solutions, and implementation issues.

National Technical Challenge

The goal of this challenge is to generate awareness and curiosity to attempt solutions to interesting real-world problems (which can have positive impact on society) and to expose students to the challenges handled by IBM and IBM Research. The Challenge begins July 20, 2013.
