Annamalai University

NCPACC 2018

In the early 1920s, to serve the downtrodden and to promote Tamil Literature, Rajah Sir S. R. M. Annamalai Chettiar founded Sri Minakshi College, Sri Minakshi Tamil College and Sri Minakshi Sanskrit College in a rural setup at Chidambaram. In 1928, Rajah Sir S. R. M. Annamalai Chettiar agreed with the local Government to handover the above said institution for establishing a University. Thus, on 01.01.1929 Annamalai University was established as per Annamalai University Act 1928 (Tamil Nadu Act 1 of 1929).

Accolades
Annamalai University, accredited with ‘A’ Grade by NAAC in 2014, is one of India’s largest public residential universities with 10 Faculties and 49 departments of study. Sprawling over 950 Acres of land, the University does yeoman service in taking education to the doorsteps of the people who are otherwise far from access to centres of higher learning. 

  • “The Times Higher Education World University Ranking - 2018” has ranked Annamalai University in 801 - 1000 for Overall category and 401 - 500 for Life Sciences category.
  • "The CWTS Leiden Ranking 2017”, on scientific impact of universities and on universities’ involvement in scientific collaboration & scientific performance, has ranked the University at 14th based on the number of publications and 3rd based on the proportion of publications that, compared with other publications in the same field and in the same year, belong to the top 10% most frequently cited.
  • "The CII”, in its Report based on “Indian Citation Index” Database has ranked Annamalai University second among the Top 50 State Universities in Research Productivity: Ranking based on Articles, Citations and Citations/Paper.
  • “The Nielsen - India Today Ranking” (2017) has ranked Annamalai university 11th among the top 30 Universities in India.

Dept. of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering

NCPACC 2018

The Dept of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering was established in the year 1988. With its unique combination of Electronics and Instrumentation in those times, this branch of Engineering was offered from the year 1975 under the Electrical Engineering department.A huge growth in the field of industrial automation and then the rise in the demand for the instrument engineers led to the bifurcation from its parent department during the year 1988. After the bifurcation, as one of the departments of Faculty of Engineering and Technology, the Electronics and Instrumentation engineering department is showing a sustainable growth in every vertical of Electronics and Instrumentation stream. The Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering promises to deliver a high class teaching to make students industry ready through the state of the art laboratory infrastructure and well qualified teachers. Various funding agencies and schemes join hands to reinforce teaching and research activities for the prosperity of Department and the society at large. The Department is now supported by DST FIST, UGC SAP to maintain research climate in the campus. The master degree programme in Process control and Instrumentation is one of a kind intended to infuse deeper knowledge in the field. The PG programmes in Bio-Engineering and Microelectronics and MEMS have emerged by keeping their roots on Electronics, Control and instrumentation. The MEMS design centre which guarantee high-quality research ad one adds more feather in the cap. The Department of Electronics and instrumentation Engineering pledges to provide an excellent platform to undertake research in various fields.

Scope of the Conference

NCPACC 2018

Industrial automation plays an increasingly important role in today’s world economy. From automated video surveillance to highway systems to the manufacturing

sector to home automation, the field of automation has tremendous applications and impact on today’s daily life. Whereas mechanization provides human operators with machinery to assist them with the muscular requirements of work, automation decreases the need for human sensory and mental requirements. When the industrial automation was decided as the focal theme of the conference, the

tools/algorithm/ system associated with the automation process, namely, artificial neural networks, distributed control systems, human-machine interface, SCADA, PLC, PAC came to our mind in tandem. These tools invariably utilise a lot of control techniques, which in turn, require huge computational skills. This eventually led us to the choice of the conference title as Process Automation

Control and Computing or PACC in short.This conference call for aspirant people in higher education and research, 

The conference topics included but not limited to the following broad areas:

  1.  Linear / Nonlinear Control
  2.  Adaptive and Optimal Control
  3.  Network based Control
  4.  Model Predictive Control
