Joint with ISCIII 2014

The IEEE 7th International Conference on Humanoid, Nanotechnology, Information Technology, Communication and Control, Environment, and Management (HNICEM 2014) collocated with 6th International Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics (ISCIII 2014) to be held at the Hotel Centro, Puerto Princesa, Palawan from November 12-16, 2014.

The IEEE 7th HNICEM and 6th ISCIII are being organized by the IEEE Philippines Section together with the De La Salle University, Neuronemech, and IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, Philippines Chapter. It is one of the premier international technical conferences of the Asia Pacific Region. The HNICEM and ISCIIIA has been held since 2003 and provides an important forum for researchers and engineers from industry, and professors and graduate students from the academia to network and to discuss new ideas and development in emerging areas of electrical and electronic engineering, computers science and related topics.

The conference will feature plenary and invited talks by eminent scientists and engineers, tutorials, paper presentations, poster sessions and industrial exhibits. Our theme for this year, “Disaster Readiness through Humanitarian Technology”, addresses the generation and application of innovative engineering and technology to improve the standard of living and way of life of underserved and unserved communities. This theme encompasses more than electrical engineering and computer science, and reflects the relevance of HNICEM/ISCIII to a broad range of engineering disciplines.
