The experience at ACM Compute 2013

I and Jagan were there for the ACM Compute 2013 (22-24 Aug 2013, Vellore) to present our paper, titled Feature Selection for Detection of Peer-to-Peer Botnet Traffic. The slides of my presentation are available here on

The 6th ACM India Computing Convention (ACM Compute) was held on the theme of "Next Generation Computing Paradigms and Technologies". And they lived up to their theme well, with lots of stuff on Cloud Computing (by Dr. Raj kumar Buyya, Univ of Melbourne, Australia) and Big Data Analytics (by Prof. U. Dinesh Kumar, IIM-B) , a great tutorial on Bayesian Inference on Machine Learning (by Dr.Hari Koduvely, principal researcher at Infosys Labs, Bangalore), with a splash or two of Natural Language Processing thrown in (by Dr.Lokendra Shastri, Infosys, Bangalore), and a lot more...

We also got good opportunities to interact with Dr. P. Srinivas (Vice President, ACM India and Vice President, Infosys Labs, Bangalore) and Dr. Hari Koduvely and receive their feedback on our work.
