Co-located with the ACM India Annual Event, ARCS (formerly IRISS) is a premier ACM India conference spanning two days. The program features:
The audience comprises students, faculty and industry leaders from across India coming together in an interactive environment, such as panel discussions, informal "Ask me Anything" sessions with the ARCS speakers as well as Annual Event invitees like Turing Award laureates.

Researcher, Google Research
I like to believe I am a researcher + solutionist and I make sense of very abstract problems in the areas of Education and Access (broadly) by designing/implementing scalable high-impact programs. Since 2017, I am a Program Manager at Google Research, leading Education and Research Programs which aim to strengthen CS Research in universities, Computer Science and Primary Education at K-12 and. I work with Milind Tambe to lead Strategy and Operations for our AI for Social Good efforts in India.
Assistant Professor, IIT Dharwad
Her research interests lie in the broad areas of computer architecture and embedded systems, with specific focus on Power, Thermal and Performance modeling, characterization and management.
Dr. Praphul Chandra is the Founder of KoineArth which works at the intersection of Blockchains & Supply Chains. He is also a professor of data science and machine learning at the International School of Engineering (Insofe). Prior to this, he was Principal Data Scientist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. His other industry experience includes positions at HP Labs and Texas Instruments. He has an undergraduate degree in Electronics engineering from IIT BHU, a post graduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University, NY, a post graduate diploma in public policy from University of London and a PhD in Game Theory & Mechanism Design from the Indian Institute of Science.
Assistant Professor, National University of Singapore
His research interests are at the intersection of artificial intelligence and formal methods, which also lies at the intersection of theory and practice. His group strongly believes (and acts upon the beliefs) in developing mathematical frameworks whose faithful implementations can handle practical applications. He is also a receipient of 2019 NRF Fellowship for AI.
Assistant Professor, IIT Delhi
I am currently an Assistant Professor in Computer science and Engineering, IIT Delhi. My research interests lie in building distributed, networked and privacy-aware systems, focused on problems at the boundary of information technology and society. I have built systems for road traffic monitoring, human mobility measurements, public policy audit and privacy enhancement in ubiquitous systems, among others. I like to work on problems where I can apply inter-disciplinary CS techniques and the solutions might potentially have societal impact, especially in developing regions. I like the tension created by methods with conflicting requirements, when incorporated in the same system. E.g. some sensing task might give best results with high-dimensional deep learning based features extracted from the data. But if those features need to be securely transmitted to a remote server for privacy reasons, cryptography will pose a conflicting requirement for the plaintext message to be small, to minimize network bandwidth.
Professor, IMSc Chennai
I am a Professor of Theoretical Computer Science at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, India. I am also affiliated to Department of Informatics, University of Bergen, Norway (as a Professor). My other affiliations include Adjunct Professor at Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) Kolkata (2019-2024) and a member of IRL 2000 ReLaX. I am interested in designing efficient algorithms (or prove it does not exist) for hard problems arising in every domain. In particular I design algorithms whose running time is analyzed in terms of different input parameters. In particular, I am interested in Multivariate Complexity or its two variable avatar Parameterized Complexity. My other interests include Graph Theory, Matroids, Matching Theory and Approximation Algorithms. In short my current research interests include: Parameterized Complexity, Moderately Exponential Time Algorithms, Graph Theory and Approximation Algorithms
Professor, IIT Bombay
My topics of interest span several fields including machine learning, data analytics, databases and statistics. My current research interests are sequence models for text and time-series, domain adaptation, effective human intervention in learning, graphical models and structured learning.
As a part of ARCS 2021, a large number of technical sessions is being organized on diverse topics where researchers from top-notch universities and scientists from R & D industries expound on various research domains.
ACM India announces the 15th Academic Research and Careers for Students
(ARCS) Symposium, Coimbatore, India. Earlier, the event was known as
IRISS. ARCS invites research scholars of computer science and allied areas
in India to showcase their recent work (either published in 2020 or accepted
in 2020 for publication) to a conclave of researchers and potential employers.
Apart from the contributed talks and poster presentations, ARCS 2021 will comprise talks by the ACM-India Doctoral Dissertation Award recipient (DDA), Early Career Research (ECR) Awardee and an invited Keynote Speaker. Further to this there will be four talks by early career researchers discussing the speaker’s transition from PhD to their career and job, their expectations, disappointments, why they chose what they did etc. Finally, we will also have several panel discussions.
Submissions will be in electronic form via EasyChair. Submissions must not exceed 2 pages (including the title page, but excluding bibliography). Submissions should begin with a title followed by the names and affiliations of all co-authors. This should be followed by a detailed abstract and the details of the venue where the work has either appeared or been accepted for publication. Submissions should be no more than two pages long. The usage of pdflatex and the ARCS style file are mandatory; no changes to font size, page geometry, etc. are permitted. Because of ongoing pandemic we will accommodate virtual presentations, if needed. Click << here >> to download the ARCS style file.
Abstract Submission extended deadline: !!! Submission closed !!!
Notification to Authors: 1 st December, 2020
ARCS is committed to making participation in the event a meaningful experience for everyone, regardless of level of experience, in the Computing field.
