ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IN SERVICE OF REGIONAL INDUSTRY
Background & Aim
IEEE International Conference on Industrial Technology is one of the flagship yearly conferences of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society with its distinguished attendees. The IEEE ICIT 2019 will be held in, the world’s most happy and liveable city, Melbourne, Australia, from February 13th to 15th 2019, at the internationally renowned Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The aim of the 20th edition of this conference series is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of emerging developments and applications in the rapidly evolving field of Industrial Technology. Also, it serves as a conduit for channelling advanced research and applications to the regional industry. It brings together researchers, from industry and academia, active in industrial technological fields to discuss current developments and future perspectives. In addition to the traditional technical tracks of ICIT series, this conference committee is pleased to include, for the first time, a technical track on “Automation in Mining Engineering”.
