the occasion of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Institute,
a time capsule is being deposited at a location close to the auditorium.
The accompanying plaque carries the following message:

is a time capsule? Organizations see tumultuous progress
and tidings over decades and centuries. The participants in,
what is nothing short of drama, indulge in intense debates
and discussions, in classrooms and research laboratories,
and possibly at street corners! The growth of the organization
is sporadic but definitive. Can these milestones be singled
out and recorded for posterity? The time capsule captures
these trends quite subtly as nonlinear growth of an Institute,
the recurring themes and values, and newer concerns that prepare
a society for the future. Decades (indeed, generations) later,
future societies would reflect on what we stood for as well
as our ideals, goals, and aspirations.

Perspective of International Collaboration for IIT Kanpur
P. K. Kelkar, the founding Director of IIT Kanpur, championed
the cause of international collaboration in IIT Kanpur since its
inception. The Institute benefitted from the Kanpur Indo-American
Program (KIAP) in the days of its infancy and in recent times,
the international cooperation is on the rise given our high level
competency in academics and research, achieved in last 50 years.
This one-day perspective workshop intends to honor Prof. Kelkar
in his centenary year and seeks to provide a platform to our faculty
and foreign dignitaries from the embassies of various countries
for a dialog, in order to strengthen ongoing research partnerships
and future interactions. This meeting will provide a direct window
to the visitors about our expertise in niche areas of cutting
edge research and high quality academic programs. The workshop
will comprise of two oral sessions dedicated to research and academics
and a poster session displaying research topics of ongoing international
projects. The Convener is Dr. Sandeep Verma, Department of Chemistry.
to launch India's lightest nano satellite, Jugnu
to Launch Nano Satellite by December 2009 Vishnu Pandey / New Delhi/
Kanpur May 19, 2009, 0:52 IST, Bus Standard
Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IITK) has received the Indian
Space Research Organisation (ISRO) nod to launch its first and country's
lightest nano satellite, Jugnu, by this December. The nod came after
a second design review was presented by the IIT-K authorities. The
satellite will be launched in the polar orbit from Sriharikota.
IIT-K director Sanjay Govind Dhande said, "Though the memorandum
of understanding between ISRO and IIT-K for the project was signed
in February, regular review sessions are being carried out by ISRO
to check the progress of the project." The first review session
of the Jugnu was carried out by ISRO in April. "On Tuesday,
our technical team working on the project apprised ISRO authorities
of the release and antenna mechanism," said Dhande. A team
of 12 professors and 40 IIT-K students led by professor and mechanical
engineering department head, Nalinaksh S Vyas, have been working
on the project since last December. A technical team of ISRO led
by D Madhav Murthy, director (small satellite), said they had informed
Isro authorities about the details related to the release of Jugnu
by mother satellite in polar orbit, and also provided the details
regarding the satellite antenna set up in the institute premises.
"A similar project in any European country would have cost
over Rs 10 crore but we expect the entire project to complete within
a budget of Rs 2-3 crore, without compromising on quality. This
is a welcome signal for indigenous remote sensing technologies,"
said Vyas. Weighing 3.5 kg, Jugnu would be 34 cm long and 10 cm
wide. It would be equipped with micro imaging and micro electronic
system, and transit images to base station at the IITK campus. "Although
the stipulated life time of the satellite is six months, we are
optimistic that it will complete at least 12 months in the orbit,"
said Dhande. The high-resolution pictures and data obtained will
be used for various applications such as drought monitoring, wasteland
management, urban planning and flood-risk management.
