IEMCON 2017

IEEE IEMCON 2017

Date – 3rd – 5th October 2017

Venue – UBC, Vancouver Canada

Introduction:

The 8th IEEE Annual Information Technology, Electronics and Mobile Communication Conference IEEE IEMCON 2017 will provide an opportunity for researchers, educators and students to discuss and exchange ideas on issues, trends, and developments in Information Technology, Electronics and Mobile Communication. The conference aims to bring together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds to emphasize dissemination of on-going research in the fields of in Information Technology, Electronics and Mobile Communication. Contributed papers are solicited describing original works in the above mentioned fields and related technologies. The conference will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, special sessions, business application sessions, tutorials, and demonstration sessions. All accepted papers will be presented during the parallel sessions of the Conference and papers will be submitted for publication at IEEE Xplore Digital Library. There will be a participation of around 40 countries worldwide with more than 300 researchers/academicians/industry representatives and students. This conference is financially and technically sponsored by IEEE Vancouver section, Institute of Engineering Management (IEM) & University of Engineering Management (UEM).

This conference will also promote an intense dialogue between academia and industry to bridge the gap between academic research, industry initiatives, and governmental policies. This is fostered through panel discussions, keynotes, invited talks and industry exhibits where academia is exposed to state-of-practice and results from trials and interoperability experiments. The industry in turn benefits by exposure to leading-edge research in networking as well as the opportunity to communicate with academic researchers regarding practical problems that require further research.

Benefits to the Institute (IEM):

  • The IEEE IEMCON 2017 will help the students and faculty to publish their research papers in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
  • The Institute can collaborate with other universities for research or technology exchange.
  • Students will get a chance of a foreign internship programme which will automatically enhance their employment opportunity.
  • Along with the students, the faculties will also get a foreign exposure in leading Universities and Labs.

Benefits to the country:

  • In a broader sense this conference will help our country to collaborate research work with other countries which will create job opportunities for the talented students
  • This is a platform where our country can showcase its talent to other countries.
  • Interaction between eminent professors and technologists open up new avenues and sources of the think tank
  • In the national scenario these conferences are capable of giving new directions to the already

existing work being done on the particular areas.

  • In the field of nation building in economics, education, social & scientific developments, the

new findings of these conferences do lighten up dark dubious areas.
