The Conference
Program
The conference program
consists of plenary talks,
technical sessions with
peer-reviewed technical
papers, informative tutorials, and challenging workshops that will stimulate
your academic senses. In
the tech n ica l sessions,
we will have many special sessions organized by
the SMCS technical committees. Even if you are not a member of the committees, submit your
paper to the special sessions if your
research theme is included. You may
then be invited to be a member of the
committee since you are active in
that research area.
The quality of the conference is rising year after year, and your contribution is vital to keep our conference the
best among many commonly themed
conferences. Presentations and demonstrations by industries, research
institutions, and universities will
be held in the avenue or promenade
in the conference venue. Young researchers and university students will
have the opportunity to meet organizations where their skills or abilities
are needed. Workshops for women in
engineering, young researchers, and
students will also be held during
the conference.
Please note these important dates:
◆ special session proposals due: 23
February 2018
◆ paper submissions due: 31 March
2018
◆ tutorial and workshop proposals
due: 6 April 2018.
