SigTelCom2020 wraps up on a high note

On 28 August 2020, the 4th International conference on Recent advanced in signal processing, telecommucations and computing (SigTelCom2020) opens and wraps up successfully at Thuyloi University.

Originated from International Conference on Computing, Management and Telecommunications (ComManTel), the International Conference on Recent Advances in Signal Processing, Telecommunications & Computing (SigTelCom) features a comprehensive technical programme that spans most state-of-the-art research in all mentioned fields.

The opening ceremony is livestreamed and connected with participants from their places in UK and Vietnam

The opening ceremony of the conference takes place at Room 225, Buidling A2 with the attendance of Ms. Donna McGowan, Country Director of British Council Vietnam, TLU’s President Prof. Trinh Minh Thu, Vice President Prof. Nguyen Trung Viet and more than 50 speakers, chairpersons, TLU’s faculty members and others, either in person at TLU or virtually via Zoom connection.

SigTelCom2020, co-organized by Thuyloi University, Duy Tan University (Vietnam) and Queen’s University Belfast (UK) , extends the series of the annual conference, which was previously held in Da Nang (2017), Ho Chi Minh City (2018) and Hanoi (2019).  The event is technically supported by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and IEEE Vietnam, mainly sponsored by Newton Institutional Links and delivered by the British Council.  

Prof. Nguyen Trung Viet opens SigTelCom2020

In his welcome speech, Prof. Nguyen Trung Viet, Chair of the SigTelCom2020 LOC, emphasizes that SigTelCom2020 is expected to make contribution in enhancing the research quality and increasing international publications in Vietnam. He believes this is a good opportunity for the colleagues in signal processing, telecommunications, and computing to discuss, exchange and approach new knowledge.

As the representative of the sponsor, Ms. Donna McGowan appreciates the partnerships grown and developed amongst the international partners that leads to the series of SigTelCom conferences in the past years and expects that “the conferences have brought and will continue to bring diverse opportunities for researchers, scientists and stakeholders from the UK, Vietnam and the region to share their research results and experience on cutting-edge research in relevant areas, helping setting up research groups and develop ground-breaking projects to tackle local, pressing challenges.”

SigTelCom2020 has 03 keynote speakers who are the leading scientists in signal processing, telecommunications and computing: Prof. Nguyen Duc Hoa (Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam), Assoc.Prof. Hoa Le-Minh (Northumbria University, UK), and Dr. Antonino Masaracchia (Queen’s University Belfast, UK).

This year, the conference received more than 50 submissions from 15 countries. Each paper was reviewed by at least 3 experts, chosen from 295 Technical Program Committee members in the academia, government laboratories, and industries. After carefully examining all the received review reports, the SigTelCom TPC finally selected only 21 high quality papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the IEEE SigTelCom2020 proceedings. Due to Covid-19 pandemic situation, the conference allows the participants to attend the sessions either at the venue or from home via Zoom connection.

All keynotes and presentations are conducted on Zoom

The content of the conference this year targets at the topical issues regarding the theories, algorithms and applications in signal processing, telecommunicationss, and computing with the theme Internet of Things and 5G Telecomunication for disaster management and environmental degradation. The conference consists of 04 sessions:

- Electronics and Control Systems

- Security, privacy & computing technologies

- Telecommunications Systems and Networks

- Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligent & Applications

SigTelCom2020 ends successfully at the end of the day. Thuyloi University hopes that the conference has met the expectations of the participants and brought them good memories and potential opportunities of  research cooperation.
