IDRBT Doctoral Colloquium

The Annual IDRBT Doctoral Colloquium is a part of the Institute's efforts towards attaining leadership in technology research related to Banking. This colloquium provides an opportunity for researchers pursuing doctoral research (Ph. D.) from reputed institutions such as IITs, IIMs, and NITs to present and discuss their research ideas.

Apart from sessions wherein students pursuing Ph. D. share their research and get feedback from the academic community, the colloquium features workshops and panel discussions on emerging issues in technology research, with the aim of enriching the next generation of technocrats. The colloquium involves extensive participation of faculty members and technical experts from IDRBT as well as from other top technical institutes, banks, financial institutions, and industry as reviewers, presenters and members of jury.

Students pursuing full-time doctoral research (Ph. D.) in different areas of Computer Science, Information Technology, Information Systems, Information Security, Banking Technology or closely related areas, and have completed a minimum of two years of research after enrolling for full-time Ph. D., and who wish to present it to an eminent technical community are invited to participate in the Colloquium.

This Colloquium, held every year around December, provides an opportunity for budding researchers to present and discuss their research ideas and problems and to build a strong network of technology researchers.

The Colloquium covers areas such as Cyber Security – Vulnerability Analysis, Digital Forensics, Penetration Testing, Web Security, Application Security, Malware Analysis; Analytics – Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, Social Media Analytics, Chatbots, Data Warehousing; 5G and Mobile Computing – Banking Apps, Security Testing, Network Orchestration, 5G Use Cases for BFSI, Multilingual Services; Authentication and Identity Management – Pattern Recognition, Image Processing, Multimodal Biometrics, Physiological and Behavioural Biometrics, Multi-factor Authentication, Single Sign-on; Data Centres, Virtualization and Cloud Computing – Green Computing, Open Source Technologies, Architectures, Security and Privacy, Edge and Fog Computing, Micro services; Web Services – Semantics, Ontologies, Discovery and Secure Composition; Program Analysis – Dataflow, Control-flow Integrity, Secure Programming Practices; Payment Channels and Systems – Digital Currency, Blockchain, Distributed Ledgers, Wallets, Protocols for Secure Transactions and other closely related areas.
