It is estimated that by 2020 there will be billions of connected devices. Such a massive number of devices has played a pivotal role in a wide range of disciplines and applications, e.g., smart cities, smart farms, industry 4.0. Research and development in materials (e.g. graphene), communications technology (e.g. ultra-reliable and low latency communication), data analytics, signal processing, brain-computer interaction and artificial intelligence are major driving forces.
University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT) – Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM), and University of Engineering & Technology (VNU UET) are pleased to announce the Research School 2018 on “Enabling Technologies for Smart City” (RS2018) to be held in Ho Chi Minh city on 14-15 May 2018. The aim of RS2018 is to address a high level of interest and introduce latest developments in smart city enabling technologies to students and researchers in Vietnam and to foster exchanges of ideas and PhD training opportunities.
Distinguished professors from UTS, HCMUT and VNU-UET will deliver lectures on Cyber security, 5G communications technology, artificial intelligence, data/video analytics, and semiconductor technologies. There will be a Students Poster Competition on research of student participants. There will also be a social networking dinner.
Who should Attend?
The target audience includes instructors, researchers and engineers, senior undergraduate students, graduate students (MSc, PhD students), PhD students with scholarships to study abroad. Upon successful completion of RS2018, most outstanding students will be recommended for PhD research scholarships (up to annual $35,000 tuition/fee waiver, $27,700 living stipend plus health insurance, roundtrip air ticket, settlement allowance, and project-based top-up funding) at UTS or at the Joint Innovation and Technology Centre between VNU-HCM and UTS.
Financial Support: 40 travel grants towards covering travel and accommodation expenses will be available to qualified applicants who are based outside of Ho Chi Minh city (e.g., from Hanoi or Da Nang, Hue…). The amount of the travel grant will be notified to successful applicants by April 20, 2018.
