Department of Computer Science and Engineering, NIT Calicut C-SCAN 2016, the first of its kind, is a National Conference aimed at bringing in student teacher  fraternity of CSE Departments of all NITs across the nation under a single umbrella for exchange of ideas to spark innovation. The conference would serve as a platform to improve interaction and bridge the gap between faculty and students of different NITs. This would help identify patrons of  similar research areas and help initiate collaboration in research projects to subsequently publish research papers. This conference presents an  excellent opportunity for students among various NITs to collaborate and form strong ties of technical expertise. C-SCAN 2016 was hosted by National  Institute of Technology Calicut. The conference witnessed participation from 8 NITs all over the nation including NIT Calicut. The participants included HoDs, Professors, Research Scholars, Graduates and Undergraduates from various NITs. The discussions revolved around student internship schemes, faculty exchange programme, research collaboration, annual conference proposal and implementing a common curriculum for CSE/IT departments across all NITs.

The keynote speaker was Mr. Damodar Padhi, Vice President and Global Head for Talent Development function in Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS). The conference was sponsored by TEQIP II of NIT Calicut. The conference was organized by the Computer Science & Engineering Association with a Technical Co-sponsorship from TCS.

The workshop consisted of thirteen expert lectures by eminent researchers both from India and USA on various aspects of Biocomputing.

The workshop also consisted of dedicated breakout sessions, where the participants were broken up into smaller groups, each one consisting of US and Indian experts for the purpose of discussing possible future research collaborations. During this session, the dynamic exchange of information resulted in a fruitful brainstorming activity.

Further, more than fifty scientific posters covering all the major areas of bioinformatics were displayed in the workshop. It was a golden opportunity for young participants (research scholars, post-graduates and undergraduates) from reputed research institutes (Rajiv Gandhi Center For Biotechnology, Central Food Technological Research Institute, National Chemical Laboratory, Indian Institute Of Technology Madras, Bose Institute, Indian Statistical Institute, Institute Of Microbial Technology, Chandigarh, NIT Calicut etc to present their work.

Outcome of the Workshop: A centre of excellence for Biocomputing is being   setup at the Dept. of Computer science & Engineering at NIT Calicut, In collaboration with IUPUI USA. The director board of the centre has been formed. A panel of researchers from USA and India have signed up for doing result oriented research in the area of Biocomputing.
