International event organization
Our priorities for this time of year are mainly dedicated to the organization of three upcoming international events. Firstly is the IEEE-ISCAS symposium to be held in Montreal from May 22nd to the 25th. We are adjusting the final details of a program that strives to be innovative and unique. The social program will include a welcome reception on Sunday 22 May, a banquet-gala and a farewell reception to which all participants are welcome. Also, we encourage all members of ReSMiQ to attend the many intensive courses scheduled on the first day of the conference. We invite you to regularly visit the website at iscas2016.org for details.
NEWCAS is the second event toward which our attention is directed. It will be back in Canada and for the first time outside the province of Québec. It will be held on Canada’s west coast in Vancouver from June 26th to 29th. The call for papers has been launched and the deadline for submitting articles which was February 28 has been prolonged by ten days, until March 7th. The executive committee of ReSMiQ encourages all members of the center to submit their recent work and to participate in great numbers. You will find more details on the conference web site.
Lastly, we are joining forces with colleagues from France and Japan and doing so giving our annual symposium international scope. We’ll have guest speakers who will talk about the impact of circuits and systems on human health and quality of life. A poster competition featuring projects by graduate will also be part of the program. as a matter of fact the call for communication will be broadcasted in a few days. The symposium will take place during the first day of the conference ISCAS 2016, Sunday, May 22nd, at the Sheraton Centre in Montreal. We invite you to regularly visit the ReSMiQ website at resmiq.org for details.
