ED/AP/MTT/COM/EMC Tomsk Chapter
Tomsk Chapter has regularly organized conferences on various fields not only in Siberia region. First Euro-Asian Conference on Future Energy together with International Siberian Conference on Control and Communications (SIBCON) was held in June in Astana, capital of Kazakhstan with EDS technical co-sponsorship. The financial support was provided by Saken Seifullin Kazakh Agrotechnical University. Since 1995, SIBCON has been organized biannually. It focuses on advances in devices for control, communications and technology innovations from different points of view, in order to improve the understanding in the field. Our goal is also a propagation of EDS development by formation of the chapters. We believe that it is necessary to form chapters in big academic and industrial cities of Kazakhstan by fields of strategic activities: communication, control, future green agriculture, energetics.
Representatives of different Kazakh, Siberian, foreign academia, and R&D companies participated in the conference. A high professional activity was demonstrated by participants. The invited and regular papers were presented in 32 oral sessions organized in 8 tracks. The sessions addressed key problems of modern electronic devices, modern manufacturing technologies, as well as some related topics. Different types of presentations were made, namely ordinary presentations, new ideas, valuable conclusions from experience, the state-of-the art and instructive survey communications. All presented papers were published in IEEE Xplore. Several active conference participants, both engineers and students, received best paper awards.
A tutorial on the modern level of technical and information means usage in measurement services was also organized by R&D branch of National Instruments Russia. The conference included also the special session “Join the IEEE” demonstrating the Institute membership benefits.
One of the best traditions of Tomsk conferences, the social program, was particularly rich and included the banquet with Astana street seeing tour. Astana is a brilliant city merging historical and modern objects. It is a new venue for the IEEE events due to the luxury places, exotic culture, and excellent service. An increased interest in the Tomsk Chapter conferences was clearly observed. We cordially invite you to the Moscow Workshop on Electronic and Networking Technologies (MWENT) http://mwent.hse.ru in March 14-16, 2018.
