Data Analytics in investigative news stories
Investigative reporting has always remained an eye opener for masses. But sting operations are no more the ultimate weapon for investigative journalism. With the growing avenues of data journalism, data analysis is now the new weapon that allows the journalist to go beyond simple anecdote and gather evidence against corruption.
This paper will focus on how data analytics have employed to do investigative journalism. The paper attempt to analyse on how to analyse and investigate open data to build evidence. It will consider certain case studies. The paper further attempts to explore the concept of data integrity and data cleaning required for investigative journalism.

Org-Mode: Let a text editor save you
 An extensive text editor like Emacs which is mostly keyboard-driven may seem quite scary. You need to learn all the keyboard shortcuts, a new programming language and do a bit of coding yourself to get a basic IDE going. But then why are people all the way from poets to scientists using Emacs on a daily basis? This talk will give you an idea of why.

Mathematical foundations of Neural Networks
I will take a specific use case of deep learning and then show how to build a simple neural network to solve the problem. I will dig deep into the inner workings of the neural network. Specifically, I will be taking each component of the neural network one-by-one (forward propagation, back propagation, activation function, regularization, loss function, optimize, metrics, etc) and explain what mathematical concepts are involved in each component (linear algebra, multivariable calculus, etc). I will then explain how these concepts are used at the mathematical level (at the level of tensors). The focus of the talk will mainly be at the mathematical level and not at the high level of built-in libraries.

Distributed Consistency with CRDTs
CRDTs are data types that becomes consistent when they know about other instances of those data types, making them useful to achieve distributed consistency (as done by raft, paxos, operation transformation in google docs)

CRDTs talk at LSPE: https://kishansagathiya.github.io/talks/Distributed%20Consistency%20with%20CRDTs.pdf

Expected outcomes: Audience leaves the room with clear understanding of what CRDTs are, how they work, it's properties and how to use them to solve their software design problems

Let's talk about Abstractions
Abstractions make things appear simple. This is one of the main concepts behind OOP. So what is it?! This talk will provide some guidelines on how to build abstractions that are extendable and scalable. Throughout the talk using examples Smit will try to differentiate between good and bad abstractions. He will talk about various ways of how to write clean, non-leaky and mature abstractions and present examples of same.
