Workshop on Current Trends in Computer Science

A one-day workshop on Current Trends in Computer Science was conducted by the Department of Computer Sciences on the 3rd of April 2019. The aim of this workshop, the third in its series, is to focus on the areas of software engineering with special emphasis on the design patterns in the software engineering process. The event started with a word of prayer by Mr Celestial Passah and an introduction of the keynote speaker by Dr. Amit Gurung.

The keynote speaker, Dr. Rajarshi Ray, began his talk by citing examples from real life design problems of mechanical engineering that motivated the need for design patterns comparing these problems with those of software engineering. Dr. Ray then introduced the various design patterns that are used in software engineering to solve the common recurring problems in the software development process.

Dr Ray also briefly introduced the basic components of a UML diagram and the class diagrams which are the basic tools for software analysts. He also talked about one of the most common software engineering problems regarding shared database, that is, the overconsumption of the memory resource of a system. A solution to this problem is the singleton design patterns.

The workshop also included two hands-on sessions where the participants were exposed to real time problems and made to solve them with adapter design patterns.

The workshop was followed by a short validatory session. The Secretary Doctoral Committee, Dr (Ms) Sairabell Kurbah and Dr (Ms) Maribon Viray, Associate Dean, Research and Controller of Evaluation and Examination, were present in the occasion.  Dr Kurbah, in her speech, encouraged the students to take the subject seriously as the use of a computer in this millennium is ubiquitous making the subject highly demanding thus increasing its scope. The program concluded with a vote of thanks given by Ms Lucy Manisha Kurbah and a prayer by Ms Risuklin Giri Rymmai.
