National Workshop on Software Defined Radio
Organising College Name: PES Institute of Technology & Management, Shimoga Fest Type: Workshop Fest Start Date: 5th September 2014 Fest End Date: 6th september 2014 Fest Info: This workshop is designed to train and develop professionals in telecommunication field. This workshop addresses the fundamental basis for interoperability among various radio networks. The promise of software defined radios for rapidly changing the operating characteristics suggests an exciting new method to create opportunities and means of interoperability among and between any numbers of different radio systems. The key objectives of this workshop is to understand the architectural design of reconfigurable devices and supporting system functions in order to offer an expanded set of operational choices to users, applications and service providers, operators and regulators in the context of heterogeneous mobile radio systems.

How to Reach
Shimoga can be reached by train from Bangalore or Mysore. The journey time from Bangalore or Mysore is around 5 – 6 hours. There are many trains running from Bangalore from morning till late night everyday. Avail city service bus (auto-rickshaws are also available) which will take you to the main bus terminus from where you can take buses to PESITM.
There are ample buses from the state capital Bangalore during day as well as night time. There are various classes of buses which one can take. It takes nearly 7 hours by bus and it traverses through Tumkur, Tiptur, Arsikere, Kadur, Tarikere and Bhadravati before reaching Shimoga bus terminus.
Mangalore (200 kms from Shimoga) is the nearest airport. Bangalore airport is located around 260 kms from Shimoga.
