As a person who was actively involved in VISION 2004, it is a sort of an emotional attachment to me. (A personal account follows. Recommended only for CEG ECEians)
VISION was predominantly paper presentation domain just as any “national level technical symposium” at the UG level. That was before 2004 when many of us including some alumni felt this useless event be done away with. But some others felt it was necessary atleast at some level. So we cut it down from 4 sessions to 2 and then to one due to the poor quality of papers. (as was expected) 2004 had some important changes to the format and the events.
VISION’05 was far better and in a way, radical. But everyone (including, self) felt they over did it, in terms of the magnitude. Nevertheless, a splendid effort! In such a shadow comes this year’s VISION. I am expecting this to be a fantastic and appropriate one.
There are still the usual dissenters who feel such shows are useless. I felt I should explain the reasons but decided against it because it would be useless, again. Them and Us are in a different frames of reference. So reason in one, is useless in another. So I am leaving it at that.
