Description of the program

We are happy to announce that Dr. Bruce Montague is presently at IIT Kharagpur for three months (November 1, 2001 till January 31, 2002). Dr. Montague has over 25 years of experience in operating systems engineering and has worked extensively on technology transfer. A detailed list of his publications and experience is available at http://alumni.cse.ucsc.edu/~brucem/ .

During his stay, Dr. Montague plans to work with IIT Kharagpur faculty members to provide hands on experience in the state of the art systems programming to BTech as well as MTech students. The initial interest is very high among the students. We had 108 people attend a first general talk by Dr. Montague.

We thank Dr. Bijoy G. Chatterjee, a friend of IIT Kharagpur and the Director of Systems Research at National Semiconductor Corporation, Santa Clara, California for helping us connect with Dr. Montague.
