ATMOS’13, BITS Pilani, Hyderabad


Dates: 11th to 13th of October

BITS Pilani Hyderabad presents to you its second edition of ATMOS, an exclusive national techno-management festival. Year after year, we keep pushing our limits, striving for more. ATMOS’13 is the result of an outrageous response to its maiden edition, ATMOS’12, that established a culture of having an independent national annual technical festival on this campus. This idea earlier evolved from a successful techno-cultural festival, Pearl’12 we had In February 2012. Embracing the fact that change is the only constant, we are all geared up to surprise the world again with what we have to offer.

At ATMOS, we promise to incorporate every possible aspect that helps us provide a comprehensive learning experience, with a conscious, coordinated and planned effort of a marvellous conglomeration of all branches of engineering and all fields of science. On one hand, the guest lectures and technical workshops are oriented to create an atmosphere to enjoy and understand the solid foundations and growth of technology in the contemporary world, on the other hand, there are events and competitions in every possible branch of science and management that challenge some of the best minds across the country to prove of their technical expertise and competitive spirit.

Events:

In line-up this year are many innovative and multi-dimensional events, with the major focus being on interactive learning, the very foundation for growth, only to dig out creativity out of the finest. From Robo wars to code wars, from Trebuchet wars to Popsicle constructions, you name it, we have it.

We also present to you for the very first time, an array of management and innumerable miscellaneous events that promise to keep you engaged.

ENIGMA

 

In the plethora of pulsating events this ATMOS, many of which require you to be equipped with various technical capabilities, we present to you an event whose only prerequisites are a curious mind and the ability to connect clues to the world around you. Contrary to popular belief, quizzing is a sport that has evolved beyond the clumsy boundary lines of bland information and factual memory. So when you step ahead to be part of Enigma, our national level, multi-city General Quiz, you have as much a shot at victory as anybody else, because this is one sport where you don't have to already belong to a niche group of knowledge seekers.

CUBING ATMOSPHERE

 

There is only 1 correct answer and 43 quintillion wrong ones for Rubik's Cube. So can u get the right one? God's algorithm is the answer that solves the puzzle in the least number of moves. One eighth of the world's population has laid hands on 'The Cube', the most popular puzzle in history and the colorful brainchild of Erno Rubik.While millions of people were stumped, frustrated, and yet still obsessed with their Rubik's Cubes, rumors began to circulate as to how to solve the puzzle. Hearing that 'the stationary pieces are the starting point for the solution' or 'solve one side at a time' just was not enough information for the layman to solve the Rubik's Cube.

HACK THE BOX

 

Hack the Box is a treasure-hunt style race that will test your commandline-fu. You're expected to be familiar with the basic GNU utilities, a shell of your choice and Linux in particular if you wish to ace this race. Your knowledge of how things work on a Linux box will be critical in getting you through various stages and finding what you're

tasked with.

This event has nothing to do with Ethical Hacking or cryptanalysis. Use of tools like Jack-The-Ripper and Wireshark will not be useful. Basic knowledge of Shell Scripts and the GNU/Linux Operating System is what is required.
