Its been a week, in fact more than a week but C2D memories are still fresh. We are still exchanging photographs (in fact I wanted to upload the best photograph here but I was really confused...Every photograph has its own story!!).
Waah...ahaaa these are only words that I want to use to describe C2D conference. Here I would like to mention that though I am from TBGO, this blog is for all of us. After all we are a team: TEAM OSDD. Our bosses tried hard (really hard) to separate us using the names of the two teams (My apologies to both the bosses) but hey guys we still came together and this was seen during the conference as well, when students from both the teams interacted, discussed and shared their knowledge.
After 3-4 months of online work, the onsite part started with the workshop where everyone was new and just were not more than chat friends, had lots of work pressure and deadlines (aiyoo deadlines). But finally we (at least IPW) achieved what we decided and got our annotations curated and waah gr8 job done by Dr. Anshu's students with Dr. Kitano, Dr Samik Ghosh, Yukiko and Dr. Nagasuma's guidance. The network poster needs no explanations or descriptions. It says everything itself where hardwork interwoven with several neurons resulted in such a big achievement. When IPW team's poster was one of the landmark achievement's of the conference, Team TBGO wonderful act on the stage was the one of the major topics of discussion throughout the conference. With a second special screening of the skit for SKB, and a detailed discussion with SKB, TBGO team leaders were really flying high.
Attending wonderful talks, tweeting the whole day with new netbooks, meeting different people...aaahhh I don't have many words to explain all this. Moreover I would also like to mention the gr8 performace by Sahara Band on the last day where everyone jumped on th stage and converted a decent band to a bhangra party (Yess....Saakshi we finally managed to do this....Guys, we always wanted to have a JAM session and we did that!!!)
And hey how can I miss the media coverage......We were on TV as well ...btw I hvnt seen that myself if anybody has seen that do inform me.....Anupam Me and Saurabh with Anshu mam, SKB, And our Science minister gave interviews to Aj Tak, CNBC....gr8!!
Professionally what else can you expect and when you get so many good friends...fulltooshh enjoyment then you have achieved everything......
Hope to see you all again in the second round of C2D as well!!!!
