Tahia Masr Publishes Details of the 8th International Scientific Conference for Electronics Engineering at the Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology
The School of Electronics, Communications and Computer Engineering at the Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST) in Alexandria, in cooperation with Kyushu University of Japan, organized the 8th international scientific conference entitled the “Japan-Africa Conference on Electronics, Communications and Computations 2020”. The conference will last for two days, Monday and Tuesday 14 and 15 December 2020.
The conference is held virtually at the University’s headquarters in New Borg El Arab, Alexandria, with the participation of many Engineering faculties and institutes in Egyptian, Japanese and African universities.
The conference discussed a range of axes, including the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), biomedical engineering applications, fifth-generation wireless communication systems, signal processing, images, videos, embedded systems and other advanced engineering fields.
Prof. Khaled Abdel Ghaffar, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research was keen on participating in the opening ceremony of the scientific conference on Monday with Prof. Ahmed El-Gohary, President of E-JUST. The opening session was attended by many specialists in the fields of Electronics Engineering, Modern Wireless Communications, Computer Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.
Prof. Khaled Abdel Ghaffar applauded the excellent organization of the conference and the effective participation and teamwork of the Egyptian scientists from E-JUST and the Japanese scientists from Kyushu University and the organizing body’s insistence on holding the conference despite the challenges caused by the Corona pandemic. He added: “It was the contributions of researchers and reviewers from Egypt, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Kuwait and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that had the greatest impact on the success of the conference and the continuation of connecting researchers from Egypt, Japan, Africa and the world.”
Prof. Ahmed El-Gohary praised the efforts of the organizing committee of the conference and its discussion of the presidential initiative announced by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi during the inauguration of E-JUST’s main campus. Known as the “Digital Egypt Builders Initiative” (DEBI), it is an important component of human development for Egyptian youth in the fields of artificial intelligence and data science, and their progression towards Egypt’s 2030 vision.
The School of Electronics, Communications and Computer Engineering at E-JUST offers a set of new applied graduate programs in the field of information and communication technology to enrich cooperation with and activate the DEBI initiative in the fields of Internet of Things, data engineering and physical cybersecurity.
Prof. El-Gohary added that the University has academic partnerships with 12 Japanese universities, and that the University awards joint master’s and doctoral degrees in the field of electronics engineering with Kyushu University, Japan.
For his part, Prof. Mohammad Abo Zahad, Dean of the School of Electronics, Communications and Computer Engineering, and the President of the conference, indicated that the conference includes a group of lectures and discussion sessions covering the various themes of the conference, where Egyptian and Japanese researchers and participants from other countries will present their latest findings in the fields of electronics, communications and computer engineering and the results of their research accepted for publication at the conference in areas that serve the environment and society. In line with the country’s vision 2030, a workshop is being organized on the sidelines of the conference in which specialists from Egypt and Japan will hold a series of lectures under the title “New Wireless Communication Challenges in Smart Cities.”
Egypt is currently witnessing a tremendous development of its infrastructure through the construction of 26 new cities, including the New Administrative Capital as an example of smart cities.
