About The Event

EmTech India Overview

In March 2011, MIT's Technology Review, the world's oldest technology publication, and CyberMedia, India's leading technology publisher, will be organizing the prestigious annual conference, EmTech India 2011. As India continues its journey to be a leader for innovation and entrepreneurship, we carry on the objective of creating a platform for innovation through Technology Review with a 360degree media approach. EmTech India has already established itself as a flagship annual marker for the R&D and innovation community.

Now in its third year, Technology Review India's MIT@EmTech Conference is an annual event that spotlights technological innovations that are changing the face of business and driving the global economy.

EmTech India 2011 -- a two-day summit -- will provide a unique forum for exploring next-generation technologies and their impact on business and society. The event will attract top decision makers from the technology, engineering, investment and management communities from around the world. The event will also host the 2011 TR35, Technology Review India's annual list of young innovators under the age of 35. These young thought leaders are set to light the path for a better, smarter future.

EmTech India 2011 Key Highlights

The conference will be held March 22-23, 2011 at the new ITC, Royal Gardenia, Bengaluru and will include:

- Powerful keynotes from senior business leaders and world-renowned innovators.
- Fireside chats: Activating the Innovation Gene
- Interactive breakout sessions focused on developments in specific areas of technology.

EmTech India 2011 Preview

Join business leaders, VCs, technologists, and innovators as they come together to explore the emerging technologies poised to dramatically impact the way we live and do business. This annual two-day summit is packed with groundbreaking presentations and interactive breakout sessions. Here is a sneak preview of the unique program elements of EmTech India 2011.


TR35

The underlying mission of EmTech India 2011 is to highlight truly big, really exciting technologies; topics that people working outside a given field may have never heard of, but that have clear transformative potential. This year Technology Review India will unveil the India TR35-- young innovators under the age of 35 working on cutting edge technologies primed to make a dramatic impact on India and the rest of the world. They span a wide range of fields, including biomedicine, nanomaterials, computer hardware, energy and the web.

MIT MEDIA LAB WORKSHOP

MIT Media Lab - the leading research lab in the world - lends it own brand of brainstorming to EmTech India by conducting a workshop on both days of the conference. The workshop peeks into problems prevalent in the real world across various sectors, and generates ideas about how can different technologies help. Share your latest research, create an interactive experience, and meet decision makers at an event you can’t afford to miss. 

INNOVATION LIVE!

A parallel showcase of technological innovations and products that are ready to go to market . Relevant for startups, established research and development labs, educational institutions, and technology companies, the showcase will feature innovative demos and prototypes. The Lab 2 Market showcase will provide an exclusive opportunity for making pitches to potential investors and large businesses that may want to license these technologies.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES 

EmTech India 2011 offers unparalleled networking opportunities with industry captains, and technology guru's alike. The conference provides an exclusive platform to meet the strategic thinkers that are shaping the future of their industries, along with MIT professors, alumni and MIT Media Lab researchers.

Keynote Address

Future of Energy by Daniel G. Nocera 

Keynote address by The Henry Dreyfus Professor of Energy and Professor of Chemistry. The Nocera group studies the energy conversion in biology and chemistry. Efforts have focused on understanding the reactions of multielectron, proton-coupled transformations of energy poor substrates. From this platform, the group has successfully used solar light to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Recently, they have realized artificial photosynthesis by the solar splitting of water under benign conditions. In doing so, the Nocera group can now provide solar energy/storage and clean water to the poor and those of the non-legacy world.

Ubiquitous Technologies by Kent Larson

Kent Larson directs the Changing Places research group at the MIT Media Lab. He is also director of the MIT House and Research Consortium and the MIT Living Labs initiative in the School of Architecture and Planning. His current research is focused on:

    1) Responsive Urban Housing – Strategies to disentangle places of living into three independently configured layers: high performance chassis, integrated infill, and responsive façade modules to create zero-energy, masscustomized, scalable housing.

    2) Ubiquitous Technologies – Wireless sensing, algorithms, and interfaces to understand and respond to human activity. Projects range from fine-grain activity recognition using wearable accelerometers, a persuasive thermostat using GPS location of occupants, to a context-aware tunable LED lighting for office environments.

    3) Living Lab Experiments – Deploying and testing design and technology solutions in actual environments.
