Event Details


IIT Kanpur has turned a golden 50, and the alumni association is celebrating this momentous occasion by arranging four alumni conferences across the world between now and December 2010 – two in India and two in the United States.

While the Inaugural celebratory event was held on August 8, 2009 at Kanpur, the first major alumni convention took place at IIT Kanpur, during January 2-4, 2010. We will have three additional Alumni Conferences around the world.

The schedule of these Alumni Conferences is:

  • The first in Bangalore, India on June 19, 2010
  • Second by Alumni/KIAP Conference in East Coast, USA on July 9-11, 2010, and
  • Third in Santa Clara, California, USA on July 16-18, 2010.

While all these events will focus on the theme of “innovation and leadership in the 21st Century”, the Bangalore event will particularly focus on ‘Igniting Innovation’ at IITK and in the country, and ‘Building Bridges’ between the alumni and their alma mater.  

The Bangalore program will have a heady mix of

  • a nostalgic trip down memory lane, to our golden days at IIT Kanpur
  • celebrating our alumni contributions in innovating the new India
  • a roadmap for spurring innovation in IITK education system, and
  • creation of an innovation center

While we will look at our distinguished roll of alumni that have contributed to the growth of our nation, we will also highlight the unsung heroes and the young alumni who are the future of the nation. Simultaneously, we will discuss how the alumni can contribute over the next few decades through innovations to meet the needs of our nation, fraught as it is with incredible growth-related challenges as well as the challenges of climate change and global warming. Innovation takes the center stage and we will not only investigate how to spur innovation in the IITK products, but also set-up an innovation challenge and an innovation center as a dedication to the nation on behalf of IITK.

Online registration closed.

 On site registration(on the day of the event) price will be INR 1500 for IITK alumni, non-IITK alumni and their accompanying spouses. For children it will continue to be INR 250.
