Within the framework of NTRA’s support for the university and research activities throughout Egypt, especially in Upper Egypt, and enhancement of services provided to Upper Egypt, NTRA, in cooperation with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Aswan Student Branch (IEEE AswanSB) sponsors the First International Conference on Innovative Trends in Computer Engineering (ITCE2018), which will be held at the Conference Hall of Helnan Aswan Hotel in the period from 19 to 21 February 2018. The conference is based on six tracks of innovative trends in computers and embedded systems, image processing and computer vision, computing technology, computer and network security, computer networks and innovative trends in smart systems.
It is worth mentioning that the conference will be a forum that will bring together researchers, engineers and students from the international and domestic academia and industrial communities as they could hold discussions and exchange experiences in the emerging fields of computer engineering, communications and information technology. The conference will also be an excellent opportunity for the attendees to build relationships with companies, institutes, universities and experts from all over the world as well as inspire new ideas in telecom engineering. It is expected that this event will be attended by the President of Aswan University and the executives of some companies, operating in the field of computer engineering, communications and information technology in the vicinity of Aswan and Upper Egypt. In addition, it is anticipated that around 120 researchers from Egypt and from all over the world will attend this event as invitations were sent thereto. Moreover, more than 200 students and university staff members working in the relevant fields. In fact, this conference will provide NTRA with a great chance to keep apace with the latest developments in the field of telecommunications and information technology, which will facilitate for it the decision-making process in terms of studying the telecom technology market in Egypt.
It should be noted that NTRA had, in collaboration with IEEE AswanSB, sponsored the first, second and third conferences of the engineering Universities in Upper Egypt (Universities of Menia, Assyout, South Valley, Sohag, Azhar University in Qena and Aswan Branch of Arab Academy for Science Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT)).
