Partha Pratim Das obtained his PhD in 1988. He served as a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kharagpur, from 1988 to 1998. He then shifted from academics to industry, initially as a Director for Alumnus Software and as the CEO of a start-up A Quaint Technology before joining Interra Systems as a Senior Director and Centre Head, Kolkata in 2001. His areas of expertise include computer vision, digital learning, digital geometry, and image processing.

Dr Das has been a Visiting Professor with the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics, University of Calcutta (2003–12), Head of the Rajendra Mishra School of Engineering Entrepreneurship, IIT Kharagpur, (2013–20), Professor-in-Charge for the Research Park, IIT Kharagpur (2017–20), and Joint Principal Investigator at the award-winning National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project of the Ministry of Education (2015-2022).

Recognition for Dr Das’s work includes the UGC Young Teachers’ Career Award (1993), Young Associate-ship of Indian Academy of Sciences (1992), INSA Young Scientist Award (1990), and UNESCO/ROSTSCA Young Scientist Award (1989).

Dr Das has served as General Co-Chair for VLSI Design 2005, as Organizing Chair for VDAT 2007, as Program Co-Chair for VLSI Design 2016, and as General Co-Chair for UNESCO-NDL India International Workshop on Knowledge Engineering for Digital Library Design in 2017 and in 2019. He has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the Institution of Engineers (India): Series B of Springer (2013–20).
