  • Key note addresses & plenary sessions from experts and contributed papers.
A pre-conference workshop will be held on 18th March 2009 for participants of the conference. Interested candidates may contact the conference chief-convener for more details.


A front-runner in the field of education today, Dayananda Sagar Institutions (DSI) is run under the aegis of the Mahatma Gandhi Vidya Peetha Trust, in Bangalore- described as the Silicon Valley of India. Our institutions are characterised by the quality of education across a broad range of disciplines from pre-university courses to post-graduation and doctoral programs covering Arts, Commerce, Sciences, Pharmacy, Engineering, Dental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Nursing, Allied Health, as well as Business Management and Information Technology. DSI’s commitment to internationalisation is expressed in its collaborative research and exchange programmes involving institutions from across the globe. Besides our high calibre teaching staff, the students are given a challenging academic environment, well-equipped lecture theatres and laboratories, well-stocked libraries and computer networking. In addition, we provide excellent sports facilities that are very comprehensive. The hostel facilities cater to both our local and international students, harmonising the cultural and recreational needs of our students in all disciplines.

Stress is laid not only on the quality of education, but also on the quality of life in our many campuses, to over-see the total transformation and development of students covered under the DSI banner. The Dayananda Sagar Schools and Colleges of Science, Arts and Commerce are pioneering institutions founded by late Dayananda Sagar in the early sixties. Progressively a number of institutions offering diploma, degree and postgraduate courses in Engineering, Dental Sciences, and Pharmacy were added. Management and high-end Information Technology education programmes have also been introduced. Keeping in pace with technological growth, courses in Biotechnology and Microbiology are being offered catering to new demands from industry, research institutes and the overall market needs. DSI’s new program is to train teachers at the Dayananda Sagar College of Education. Facilities for doctoral and postdoctoral work are now being created encouraging the curious within and, the talented outside to come into the folds of DSI, put to use the infrastructure and other facilities to its optimum levels.To know more about DSI, visit
