Over the last two decades the advent of information and communication technologies significantly changed the landscape of our daily life in today's world. This is particularly true for developing countries like India, where the growth and use of IT and emerging technologies, penetration of mobile communication and the internet have been unprecedented. Indeed, information is now available anytime anywhere, only a key stroke away. However, the main technical challenge is how to manage such information explosion efficiently, reliably and securely? How to mine information at scale to extract meaningful knowledge ?

Growing interdisciplinary studies worldwide is a consequence of fast computing devices and easy access to knowledge and information through internet. Use of computers has changed every walk of life in a manner unimaginable in past 10-20 years. Information technology has also emerged as a new field in this era. Therefore, keeping pace with the recent advances in Information technology is the need for everyone.
