Loyola – Racine Research Institute of Mathematics and Computer Sciences (LIMCOS) is a Research Centre for Excellence in Mathematics and Computing Sciences (Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science). It is a centre where the research scholars in and around Chennai meet periodically to foster sharing of knowledge and train young M.Phil., and Ph.D., students, who would take up social needs for research. It is a forum for young researchers to discuss modern research areas leading to collaborative, funded research and build up networking locally and globally. LIMCOS promotes modern research through online and ICT means.
Towards making a renowned, world-class centre in socially relevant research and development in Mathematical Sciences (Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science).
To be a dynamic ongoing research center where researchers in and around Chennai meet periodically to share knowledge and train young MPhil and PhD students who would take up social needs for research. To be a forum for young researchers to discuss latest research areas leading to collaborative research and building up networking locally and globally. To promote modern research through online and ICT means.
Recognition at international level on par with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR).
Top ranking among UGC and other accreditation bodies. Continuous Research Funding by government agencies such as UGC, DST and private sponsors such as Times of India etc.
To bring up to the world forum the needs of people, such as effective learning, economic equity through mathematical tools such as graph theory, fuzzy logic etc.
This center would conduct extramural research seminars every Wednesday between 2 PM and 4 PM. All the local researchers (mainly PhD and MPhil students) from inside and around Loyola College would participate. An expert in this field would lead the research discussion during the extramural seminar.
Young researchers will be given counseling and guidance to apply for competitive research grants.
An international conference in Mathematical Sciences (Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science) will be conducted every year in Loyola College.
Technical workshops would be organized to improve the software and computing skills of the researchers. These technical workshops will be 1-2-day short course in Loyola College on Saturdays and Sundays. Some examples of technical courses are: Big Data, ERP, Visio, LaTEX, MatLab, SPSS, R etc.
This proposed center would promote Loyola research scholars to do post-doctoral studies.
An international journal would be published by this center of excellence.
