Infotsav, the techno-managerial fest of ABV-IIITM, Gwalior was conducted with all pomp and fervor on 3rd and 4th October. Starting with the inauguration ceremony, the event witnessed equal participation from students of all years and even students from other colleges. Divided into technical, managerial, simulation, quiz, robotics and gamiacs, the whole event provided a wide range of platforms for students to showcase their talents and to compete with students of different levels. More than a mere technical or managerial fest, Infotsav proved to be an open stage for them to enjoy, compete and evaluate themselves.
- The first day of Infotsav 2015 started with a splendid inauguration ceremony which gave everyone a peep into what Infotsav is all about and what it has in store. Online technical and simulation events like trove trace, code rush, forex, stock sutra etc. conducted before 3rd and 4th October also showed great enthusiasm from technical college students. Various managerial events like ‘Sameeksha’, ‘Brandsome’ and ‘Pinnacle’, conducted on the first day received great appreciation. Showing that Infotsav was not completely a strict and formal event, gamers of ABV-IIITM and outside equally created an atmosphere of fun and freedom in the event gamiacs. The on spot events like pseudo algorithm and paint ball added the flavor. But the most participated event remained the treasure hunt conducted on 3rd October in which teams participated with all energy to track down the treasure. The event was followed by astronomical night, where students were given an opportunity to telescopically see the Saturn and the moon. Concluding all these fun filled events, a DJ night was organized to mark the end of the first day of Infotsav 2015.
October 4th, the second day of Infotsav had the final rounds of major events and many other fun filled competitions in store. Quiz and jobs had their final rounds; web designing, escape and app development contests were held and even managerial events like tomorrow’s cities and adhaar involved great participation. Guest lectures by various prominent technical experts were also held on both the days and aroused the thirst for knowledge in various topics in students. Innovation through waste stood hand in hand with the institute’s nature friendly measures and was a treat to the eyes. But ‘robo-fiesta’ justified itself of being the most anticipated event by having maximum participation and enthusiasm in the two fun-filled days. The competitions concluded with a prize distribution ceremony where the winners were rewarded along with the event core team and with equal appreciation to the organizers and volunteers. After the prize distribution ceremony, ‘kavi-sammelan’ was organized by 'HINDI SAMITI' which was a complete treat to both faculty and students. An enthralling performance by the music band of the college marked the end of the big day. Infotsav, sticking to its motto-‘nurturing novelty’, left a unique mark in the minds of everyone who participated and became a part of it.-HARITHA SREEDHARAN NAIR
