ICDCN 2009 US-India PEERS Workshop Report

With funding from the National Science Foundation, the US-India PEERS workshop was held during January 4-5, 2009 at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Hyderabad, with the objective of promoting growth of Computer Science education and research in the US as well as in India through the exchange of ideas and collaboration between the two countries. To get some extra visibility, the event was co-located with the International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN 2009) that was organized in the same venue during January 3-6, 2009. The major concerns addressed by PEERS were the following: While USA has been at the forefront of research in the cutting edge areas of computer science, attracting and retaining students in Computer Science higher education in recent years has not been easy. On the Indian side, the major problem is the declining interest in research and a low Ph.D. production rate. It was an invitation-only workshop: the invitees were chosen on the basis of their reputation and availability during the workshop period. PEERS examined if and how the two countries can establish collaboration to identify unique challenging problems relevant to the individual contexts, and integrate them into research and teaching activities that will benefit both countries.
