From the HOD's Desk


I am elated to see that the Editorial Board has come up with the seventh edition of BufferedReader. For the past three years, the magazine has evolved to satiate the hunger of those who crave for technology and its latest advancements. The efforts made by the BufferedReader team have not only been greatly appreciated by the faculty and student fraternities of IIT (ISM), it has won laurels outside the campus as well. As I preside again as the Head of the Department, I value the hard work of the team and extend my warm congratulations to them on coming up with this issue.

Our country has gone through tremendous economic reforms in the past few months. With the demonetisation policy, the government has urged people to move more towards the digital payment of goods and services. The seventh edition of the magazine talks about Digital Economy and how Computer Science, as abstract as it may be, is an essential part of making of the digital India.

This edition also offers a glimpse of all the activities, the CSE Department pursues, within and outside the campus, as part of its endeavour to impart maximum opportunities to the students. On one hand we bade farewell to the batch of 2017 to wish them a successful journey beyond. And on the other hand, after a month, we organised Confluence 2017, calling upon all the alumni of the department to come together and be a part of the department, once again.

I extend my sincere thanks to the students who have come up with this new edition and acknowledge their efforts. I also express my gratitude to my fellow faculty members for their valuable suggestions and extended support. I would love to know the honest feedback on the contents, quality and design of the magazine. Do share it with me at cse@

Happy reading.
