The Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Vasavi College of Engineering, together with the CSI Student Chapter, is organising the CS Fest 2008, on the 12th & 13th of March, at the the college campus in Ibrahimbagh, Gandipet Road. This national-level festival will have many exciting and competitive events, such as:
Participants are required to open up a computer, pull out everything, and still be sure to place it all back in their respective places.
Make the best possible replica of the CPU and its inner parts using any material of your choice (thermocool, metal etc.).
Gone are the days when Console Gaming was "the lazy-boy's game". It's now official. So all Xbox and PlayStation lovers, get ready for some real action down here.
It is an event that wishes to see the designer in you. If you have a model or think you can make one soon, that can play with time complexities more efficiently, Design Demonstration is worth a try.
This event explains various possible innovations in the field of computer science, and aims at educating the audience in an entertaining way.
Students get to see the latest gadgets in the market either prior to their market release or after the release dates. Mobiles, laptops and other useful electronic gadgets will be on display.
General Idea Presentation
Bring forth the best of your zillion ideas and present them here. The event will see some popular venture capitalists, and hopefully participants can make most of them.
In the hourly quiz, as the name suggests, participants will be given an hourly dose of questions to answer on the spot. These are to be answered by sending an SMS in time or before anyone else does.
Java Debugging Contest
In this contest, participants need to answer simple yet tricky Java questions.
This gaming event has two rounds - prelims on the first day and finals on the second. The top 5 teams of the first day will be shortlisted for the finals.
There will be a series of lectures on topics given below:

An ultimate session for technical wisdom exchange, the quiz offers all the excitement. Topics can be sports, politics, current affairs and the world of technology.
An open discussion including professionals and academia. This is an informal event aimed at giving industry perspective to the student community.
In this event, there will be two professionals - one from the Windows community and the another from the FOSS community. They will fight it out in a session of complete action.
One minute of heavy drama, extreme argument and utmost excitement - participants are expected to spread pure or nonsensical technical wisdom following the general rules of JAM.
Tech Solution Presentation
This event is to test how completely and selflessly one can solve a problem. Participants are allowed to choose from a number of technical problem statements that are posted online, and give a solution before the deadline.
All you have to do is put pen on paper and start working on something that sounds heavily technical, absurdly smart and still manages to have a storyline.
Virtual Job Fair
This event provides participants the experience of tackling an interview. CSFest teams up with Coign Consultants for organizing the entire process of selection, right from written exam to personal interview.
Students will design and create a website front-end template. Judges will view and judge the site in advance of the event days. Selected students are required to give an oral presentation on the day of CSFest.
