MELECON 2012 is a major international forum presenting design methodologies, techniques and experimental results in emerging electro-technologies. MELECON is one of the flagship conferences of the IEEE Region 8 with participants from all over the world. The purpose of this conference is serve as catalyst for the technical exchange between researchers and practitioners from different technological fields including Control Systems, Communication and Information Technology, Mechatronics, Nano- & Micro-Electronics, Electrical Power Systems, and Signal & Image Processing. The technical program will include plenary sessions, regular technical sessions, special sessions, poster sessions and tutorials.
Prospective authors are invited to submit a 4-page full paper reporting original work as well as proposals for special sessions and tutorials in the aforementioned areas. Papers should meet the standard IEEE 2-column format. Both lecture and poster formats have the same value, and presentation method will be chosen for suitability. All submissions should be made electronically at http://www.melecon2012.org . Students are encouraged to participate in the best student paper award contest. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE-Xplore subject to advance full-registration of at least one of the authors.
The IEEE AFRICON is pleased to announce the 11th edition of the IEEE Region 8 flagship conference of the African continent to be held from 9 to 12 September 2013. The conference will take place on the beautiful tropical island of Mauritius rated as one of the top tourist destinations and famous for its calmness, peace and harmony. Located about 2,000 kilometers off the south-east coast of Africa, the island, which is known as the Star and Key of the Indian Ocean, harbors warm turquoise lagoons along with endless white beaches and an unmatched landscape. The natural beauty and warmth of the island matches well with the theme of the conference which is “Sustainable Engineering for a Better Future” . At a time where sustainability and green practices are considered as integral aspects of engineering practices and gaining increasing importance, the conference will provide an ideal platform for professionals, academia and industry from IEEE Region 8 and all over the world to meet and discuss the latest research works and findings. The conference, hosted by the Mauritius IEEE sub section, will feature 12 technical symposia where high quality technical papers covering a spectrum of areas, will be presented, including:
- Sustainable Engineering, Energy and Environment
- Communication Theory and Wireless Communications
- Communications Networks and Security
- Multimedia and Signal Processing
- Cloud Computing, GRIDs and Virtualization
- Mobile Computing and Geo-Processing systems
- Scientific Computing and Computational Engineering
- E-learning and Educational Technology
- Instrumentation and Control
- Nanotechnology, materials and structures
- Power Electronics Systems
- Business Informatics, Software Engineering and Web Services
The conference will also feature in-depth tutorial sessions and workshops to provide participants from all over the world and involved in various engineering related fields with the opportunity to come together and share experiences, learn and explore solutions regarding the unique issues and challenges of some of the topical issues in the field of engineering. In addition to the technical, educational and professional opportunities, the relaxed setting of the conference will also be especially conducive to networking and will provide a place for academics and professionals with cross-disciplinary interests to meet and interact with members inside and outside their own particular disciplines thereby fostering future collaboration and business prospects.
We will have workshops / tutorials and also an Industry Forum which will bring together people from the industry which will open up new prospects and support academia in an exchange with business. We are also welcoming IEEE Industry members to participate massively with an opportunity to grow and find prospects.

ENERGYCON is a flagship event of IEEE Region 8 (Europe, Middle East and Africa) held every two years in a different Country. ENERGYCON is an international forum for the exchange of ideas and innovative technologies on Sustainable Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Conversion and Utilization of Electrical Energy. It is also the premier IEEE Region 8 forum for the application of Electronics, Instrumentation, Information and Communication Technology in the Electrical Energy Industry.
ENERGYCON_2012 is organized by IEEE Region 8, IEEE Italy Section and the Italian Consorzio EnSiEL, with the technical co-sponsorship of the Italian AEIT and of the IEEE Societies ComSoc, I&M, Magnetics, PES, and PELS. It run under the motto “Towards User-Centric Smart Systems”, and encompasses a Conference, Tutorial activities, and an Exhibition.
The Conference is organized around four Symposia, where accepted regular papers are presented: it allows participants to further enhance their knowledge and discuss the latest developments in the Electrical Energy field:
- Advances in Energy Conversion
- Future Energy Grids and Systems
- Sustainable Transportation Systems
- ICT for Energy
