|2014 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE on |
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to Milwaukee and the 14th IEEE International Conference on Electro-Information Technology (EIT). The EIT conference series began in the year 2000 as a technical forum for researchers and practicing engineers in IEEE Region 4 to gather together, network, and talk about the technical, economic, and sociopolitical challenges facing electrical and computer engineering in the 21st century. Over the past fourteen years, EIT has grown to become a truly international event with authors, attendees, and keynote speakers from all over the world. We are pleased that this year the papers and the registered attendees again reflect the international nature that defines modern engineering in the globalized manufacturing era.
Paper submission trends this year included substantial work in software engineering, wireless sensor networks and robotics. These papers are complemented by a broad selection from the other traditional areas of electrical and computer engineering. Thus, the technical program includes 90 blind peer-reviewed papers placed into four parallel tracks. The parallel tracks rooms are organized around the central themes of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This guide can help you quickly locate theme areas that might interest you.
Outstanding keynote speakers complement the technical program. The EIT conference has always focused on providing a strong program in both technical and career professional development topics. The keynote speakers this year continue that tradition. We are honored to have distinguished speakers from around the world joining us in Milwaukee. We are confident you will be inspired by their words and find many take-home messages to think about. This guide can help you quickly identify the keynotes by technical content (T) or career professional development (P).
Finally, one of the main purposes of a conference is just that – to confer with each other in human face-to-face social networking. Many social events scheduled throughout EIT2014 will provide plenty of opportunity to meet old friends, meet new people, establish research contacts, meet industry representatives, and relax. We hope the Milwaukee School of Engineering Grohmann Museum of Art impresses you during the welcoming reception, that our integrated information technology and audiovisual resources available throughout the event serve your needs, and that you take time to explore the MSOE campus, downtown Milwaukee, and the spectacular Lake Michigan shoreline located just seven blocks east of the conference events. Milwaukee is a Great City by a Great Lake. On behalf of the Organizing Committee let us end by saying:
"Welcome to Milwaukee – we’re glad you’ve joined us!"
