Srinagar, March 16

Seeking technical expertise and intellectual inputs from KU for better policy planning in the state in the IT sector, Minister for Information Technology, Technical Education and Youth Services & Sports Imran Raza Ansari today inaugurated the 2015 International Conference on Advances in Computers, Communication and Electronic Engineering (COMMUNE 2015) at the University of Kashmir. Ansari also inaugurated UGC-sponsored National Seminar on Electronic Devices, Systems and Information Security (SEEDS 2015) on the same day which is also being organised by the Postgraduate Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Technology, KU, along with COMMUNE 2015. While releasing the proceedings of the international conference and national seminar, Ansari, who was chief guest on the occasion, said, “Our government needs support of the scientists, academicians and researchers of this university in localisation of various tools and uses of information and communications technology (ICT) at the grass-roots level so that people at every strata of society could be sensitized about various benefits of ICT in their day-to-day lives.”

The IT Minister added that his ministry was also looking forward to KU for a detailed proposal which would help the government in evolving such a mechanism where various mediums of the ICT could be used for better preparation and spreading awareness amongst the people in the wake on any natural disaster and how to use various mediums of communication on such occasions. While maintaining that advancement in the field of Information Technology is a priority of the present government, Ansari said, “I hope these two events, including the international conference and the national seminar, would come up with practical and thought provoking recommendations which would help us in better policy formulation and effective planning.”
