Welcome from Industry Forum Chair
Welcome to the IEEE TEMSCON 2019 Industry Forum. The Industry Forum is a significant element of TEMS conferences that helps to facilitate a bridge between research and industry. The venue features industry speakers and panels that discuss the technical directions of industry and, most importantly, its challenges. Conceptually, some of the attending research community may be studying or wish to study those challenges. Industry Forum speakers come from Research and Development divisions of companies that understand the technical challenges and/or business strategies for a company. The Industry Forum concept is not a product marketing event; but rather the program is where industry presents their technology challenges and researchers, if interested, may contribute and engage to solve like challenges.
The theme of this year is “The 4th Industrial Revolution; Life and Enterprise of the Future”. We have a great line-up of industry leaders and industry experts participate in various sessions. Sessions are organized into keynote speakers and panel sessions. Keynotes are senior industry leaders that discuss how an industry is changing and the many challenges that are being addressed. Panels are focused on a selected topic with each speaker presenting a point of view followed by an interactive session on the overall topics.
The IEEE is regarded internationally by many professionals as the trusted source for technology information, inspiration and collaboration. It is a thriving community for technology subject matter experts, researchers and thought leaders. The IEEE TEMS’ Industry Forum provides a unique platform for industry leaders to outline their technology challenges and garner potential collaborations with the IEEE’s researchers worldwide.
We would like to thank all the speakers and panellist around the globe who generously donated their time and efforts to make this forum an informative and exciting event.
