Pragyan 2011 - Anveshanam


Cash prizes increased to 35,000 INR !!!
List of selected papers is out!

Exploring the impossible……

Do you have an idea that can ignite a new dimension in a particular field of technology or act as a valuable addition to a conventional practice?? Have you ever analyzed a process or a machine and arrived at a significant conclusion regarding its performance, not yet known to the scientific fraternity??? If yes, here is the right platform for you to showcase your talent and enlighten the world with what you are aware of. And if you can reinforce your stand with impeccable reasoning and impress our eminent arbitrators, you might be fittingly rewarded.

Anveshanam, the paper presentation contest covers all streams of engineering, which have been broadly categorized under the following five clusters,

  • Building Science
  • Chemical and Material Sciences
  • Computer Sciences
  • Electrical Sciences
  • Mechanical Sciences and Production Technology

Undergraduate and Graduate students of all streams of engineering, along with those pursuing their degrees in Computer applications (BCA and MCA) are invited to send in their research papers.


The contest enables students from all streams of engineering to present their ideas in the form of a paper which they will present in front of an elite panel of judges.

Short-listing of Papers

  • Participants have to submit their papers (only full papers are accepted; abstracts will not be considered) to the Anveshanam Team through email at Formula: 0.
  • The papers will be divided into their respective clusters and sent for scrutiny.
  • The shortlisted participants will be notified by email (it would also be updated in the website).

Judging Criteria

The papers submitted will be judged on the following grounds.

  • Originality & Innovation
  • Technical Content
  • Clarity of Presentation
  • Practical Application

Papers will be awarded points based on this criteria and the decision is left to the Judge's discretion.

Topic Clusters

The various streams have been broadly classified in to:

  1. Electrical Sciences
  2. Computer Sciences
  3. Chemical and Material Sciences
  4. Mechanical Sciences and Production Technology
