A new state-of-the-art auditorium is being constructed at the Department of Computer Science and Automation at the Indian Institute of Science.

The new auditorium at the Department of CSA will foster collaboration through academic seminars and industry talks, enhancing knowledge exchange. Additionally, it will provide a space for student presentations and cultural events, enriching the department’s vibrant community.

Early donors for this project include Ittiam Systems and Prof KV Rangaswamy & Family. The project is actively supported through the CSA Golden Jubilee Development Fund, initiated by Master’s students who joined CSA in 1982-83, but is open to everyone to donate.


About CSA Department

CSA (Computer Science and Automation) at the Indian Institute of Science has its seeds in the erstwhile School of Automation set up in 1969. While at inception it was primarily focused on automatic control, the ambit expanded in the 1980s to include computation and communication, leading to the current name.

CSA focuses on creative research in three broad areas of computer science: Theoretical Computer Science, Computer Systems and Software, and Intelligent Systems. These research activities find expression through publications in premier international journals and conferences, and through the development of open-source software prototypes and tools. CSA is also involved in numerous scientific initiatives at the institute, state, national and international levels, including sponsored research projects, industrial consultancy, government programs, journal editorship, workshops, symposia and conferences.
