In-house Symposium 2016

In 2016, researchers from TCIS held an iteration of the in-house symposium. It was held in the transit campus in Narsingi. The symposium saw participation from faculty members, post-doctoral fellows and students alike. This collection of pictures offers a glimpse into ‘In-house Symposium, 2016’.
