Tribute by IITAC to our beloved Dr. Srinivasan Venkatesh
(IIT Madras-Mech. Eng. 1967; Ph.D. University of Waterloo 1974)
Dr. Venkatesh passed away suddenly on Friday April 20, 2018. He was a past President of IITAC.
For his many decades of selfless service to IITAC in various capacities including Past President, 2014 Conference Chair, Program Chair/Co-chair in 2006 and 2016 Conferences, 12 year long service in IITAC Board of Directors to name a few, he was conferred with 2017 IITAC Life-Time Achievement Award. He was a great personal support for many IITians here in Canada. He was together with IITAC members on 5th April at Smart Villages Conference at Univ. of Toronto, and later on 7th April at IITAC Open House where he gave great advice to new comers. His inspiration and guidance will be terribly missed by us. Lives of great men all remind us. We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time; ..... H W Longfellow.
