The 7th International Conference on Information Science and Technology (ICTST) will be held in central Da Nang city from April 16 to 18.

This is the first time the conference has been held in Vietnam.

It will be hosted by the Da Nang-based Korea-Vietnam Friendship Information Technology College and the City University of Hong Kong, with technical sponsorship from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), with the aim of boosting cooperation among Vietnamese IT scientists and their global peers.

The Vietnam News Agency has reported that 30 of 125 reports from 25 countries and territories on information technology will be presented by Vietnamese scientists.

“This is the largest number of reports sent by Vietnamese IT scientists at the seven conferences held since 2011,” Deputy Rector of the Korea-Vietnam Friendship Information Technology College, Mr. Tran The Son, was quoted as saying by the news agency.

“The conference will be chaired by Professor Sam Kwong from the City University of Hong Kong with the participation of three key speakers: Gary G Yen from the US, Zongben Xu from China and Hong Yan from Hong Kong, with other speakers coming from Macao, Italy, and the US.”

The Vietnamese reports primarily focus on big data, databases, visible light communications, and wireless sense security communications networks and computer science.

Mr. Son added more than 1,300 critics will review the 125 reports during the conference.

Mr. Nguyen Quang Vu, Deputy Dean of the IT Faculty at the Korea-Vietnam Friendship Information Technology College, said there will be 12 sessions on topics such as computer science, control and automation technology, digital signal processing, IT in biology and biomedical engineering, speech coding, unsupervised learning, and brain computer interfaces.

International experts will also discuss the robotics industry, smart production, navigation, smart systems in the healthcare sector, and car and motor sense control.

All reports will be available on IEEE’s database, Mr. Vu added.
