The evergreen innovating spirit of the multitudes of students, that pass through and re-energize themselves within the hallowed halls of IIT Delhi, is celebrated in North India’s largest technical extravaganza - Tryst. Tryst was started in 1992, and within two decades has transformed into an event looked forward to by college students all over India. With events across departments like Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Management, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Value Education, Rural Development &Textile Technology and several co-curricular club events from Astronomy Club, Automobile Club, Economics Club, Entrepreneurship Cell and Robotics Club, there is something for every geek! Apart from competitive events, there are several workshops and exciting exhibits to look forward to. The Technical Symposium on research (paper presentation) gives a chance to all the young guns to learn and express their technical knowledge.
And this year, Tryst is just going to go that extra mile in embodying that undying spirit of the students, with the theme of Tryst 2013 being simply "Weird, Wacky And Wild!" Tryst returns to enthrall one and all with not just commemorations of the latest achievements and developments in science and technology. This year, we promise to reveal the lighter side of science - with research that will amuse you, inventions that will make your jaws drop, and concepts that will blow your minds away, by inviting Ig Nobel ("Started by Marc Abrahams, the editor of the 'Annals Of Improbable Research', the Ig Nobels have been awarded since 1991 to many - from Nobel Laureates to fictitious characters for their achievements that 'first make you laugh then make you think'") laureates: Dr. Kazutaka Kurihara and Dr. Chittaranjan Andrade.
This year, we dedicate Tryst 2013 to the everlasting spirit of being wild and having fun. Tryst 2013 is guaranteed to give you the exhilaration of a lifetime.
