    Research Paper presented by Chairman Dr. Kamal Ghanshala

    Prof. (Dr.) Kamal Ghanshala, President, Graphic Era University has received International honors again after being awarded the best research paper at the prestigious International Institute of Engineering’s (IIE’s) International Conference held in Bangkok.

    Titled ‘A Prediction Model to Evaluate Impact of Workshop and Training Programs Activities to Stimulate Participants for ICT Usage and Resultant Awareness Index of Village Level Community’, Dr. Ghanshala’s research was adjudged the best session paper at the International Conference on Intelligent Systems, Data Mining and Information Technology (ICIDIT’ 2014) on April 22.

    This research paper has added to his body of research on the application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to benefit rural and village life. The focus of this research was to develop ways of evaluating the impact of workshops and training activities to encourage and boost ICT usage and adoption and also to measure levels of ICT awareness in the village community in the form of an index.



    By studying the hard terrain and difficult geographic conditions of the region of Uttarakhand, Dr. Ghanshala has found excessive dependence on Nature, limited resource availability, fewer employment opportunities and poor connectivity as some of impediments for development in the region. Dr, Ghanshala has identified factors affecting the implementation of IT-initiatives, of whose contribution in bringing the development activities of any state to fruition he has talked about in his previous papers.

    His presentation at the conference talked about the need for devising e-governance initiatives keeping local conditions at the forefront and also emphasized the need of developing a framework for evaluating and monitoring IT-initiatives at village level, which he sees as crucial for the success of such programmes.

    “There exists a strong positive relation between awareness level and training programs available for people… The village-people took up the re-training program enthusiastically. Huge acknowledgement was there about the increased level of awareness through training and re-training programs.Success of e-governance plans is highly dependent on users’ ability to use those policies for socio-economic empowerment. Hence, need a monitoring and evaluation framework to analyze the success and performance of e-gov policies and programs with respect to real time data of project sites.”, Dr. Ghanshala said in his presentation while sharing results of his research at the International conference.

    The IIE conference saw the participation of delegates and participants from academia all over the world. Notably, Dr. Ghashala’s research papers have previously been awarded at International conferences held at Copenhagen (Denmark), Kavtat (Croatia) and Johannesburg (South Africa).

    This achievement has once again given the GEU fraternity reasons to celebrate. Faculty and students alike are calling this as a matter of pride for not just Uttarakhand but also the nation.
