Call for Papers

Continuing the tradition at the Education Hub of Pakistan – Jamshoro, Mehran University of Engineering & Technology (MUET), announces an International Multi Topic Conference 2015 (IMTIC '15), with Technical Collaboration and support of MUET Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Campus Khairpur Mirs, European Union Erasmus Mundus INTACT (It's Time for CollaboratioN TowArds Close CooperaTion) Program, Centre for Telecommunication Infrastructure (CTIF), Alborg University, Denmark, and University of Umm Al-Qura, Makkah, Saudi Arabia. 

IMTIC’15 is an International forum for researchers to exchange information regarding novel aspects of technology, application and service development within the multidisciplinary framework of Information and Communication Technologies. It indeed provide a forum for technical exchange amongst researchers from academia and industries in various emerging fields of Computing, Wireless Communication, Signal Processing, Speech and Pattern Recognition, Computer Systems and Networks, Wireless Sensor Networks, Neural Networks and Control Systems spanning, Power Electronics, Energy Management spanning across seven tracks. 

IMTIC'15 aims to bring together a wide spectrum of international experts to facilitate a creative environment for the promotion of collaboration and knowledge transfer. In particular it will facilitate a dialogue between major industry players, entrepreneurs and academia to help create a roadmap for the development of tangible research environment in the country.

The conference program will consist of keynote speakers from both industry and academia, panel discussion and a multi-track technical program. There will be opportunities to attend interactive, high quality, peer reviewed sessions which will provide detailed insights from forward thinkers working in the themes of the conference. Additionally, there will be an exhibition for both international and niche market to display their latest products and services and to undertake a range of networking opportunities.
