In the present day scenario, the open source software is replacing the proprietary software because of manifold advantages they have over proprietary software. Even though Free/Open Source Software (FOSS) is widely used, much of the computer science research community has yet to fully recognise its potential to change the world of research and developement of software intensive systems across disciplines.
The establishment of this research and developement center is expected to create a unique opportunity to all stake holders of the institute. The facility so created shall be useful to carry out research/developement/training/consultancy related to open source software. The center will customize the open source software according to the requirements. It will also train the students and facilities of our institute and will involve them in the developement and customisation of recent open source software.
The Open Source Software Research and Developement Center will function in Computer Science & Engineering Department under the supervision of Dr. MamtaBhusry, HoD CSE. The Composition of the team, the functionaries and the funtion to be performed are listed below:-
Dr. R.K. Agarwal, Director, AKGEC (Chairman)
