IEEE Day Celebration
IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity (www.ieee.org). IEEE’s core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE will be essential to the global technical community and technical professionals everywhere and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and technical professionals to improving global conditions. IEEE Day commemorates the anniversary of the first time when IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas, which took place in 1884. Worldwide celebrations demonstrate the ways thousands of IEEE members in local communities join together to collaborate on ideas that leverage technology for a better tomorrow. While the world benefits from what’s new, IEEE focuses on what’s next.
International Scientific Conference on Information Technology and Management Science ITMS
International Scientific Conference on Information Technology and Management Science of Riga Technical University ITMS 2022 (http://itms.rtu.lv/) aims at bringing together young scientists and researchers from information technologies and management sciences in an effort to promote and encourage cross-fertilization of ideas and tools related to but not limited to the general topics of the conference, such as Information Technology, Information Systems, Computer Technologies, Data Processing, System Security and Control, Modelling and Simulation, Automatic Control, E-Commerce and E-Governance, Cloud Computing, Human-Computer Interaction, Cyber-Physical Systems, Intelligent Systems, Internet of Everything.
International Workshop on Microwave Theory and Techniques in Wireless Communication MTTW
The International Workshop on Microwave Theory and Technology in Wireless Communication MTTW’22 (https://mttw.rtu.lv/) is another continuation of a long tradition of holding communication workshops and conferences at the Riga Technical University. The Workshop has traditionally been a place of scientific acquaintance and fertile soil for many scientific, academic, and industrial projects nurtured in the fields of the Workshop: Communication Systems, Digital Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence, Sensor Networks and Internet of Things, Software-Defined Radio and Cognitive Radio, Networking, Quantum Communications, Antenna Technologies, Microwave Electronics and Photonics, MM-Wave to THz Technology and Applications, Wireless Power Transfer and Energy Harvesting, Electromagnetic Field Theory and Numerical Techniques, 3D and Novel Engineered Materials.
IEEE Lithuania and Latvia Sections Workshop on Microwave Devices and Systems
IEEE Lithuanian and Latvian Workshop on Microwave Devices and Systems bring together Baltic experts from academia and industry to present and discuss the latest innovative solutions and research results on measurement equipment and device development. The speakers will demonstrate on-the-edge issues and challenges in special approaches, methods, and algorithms to enhance the accuracy and performance of measurements and experimental verification.
Science Week of Riga Technical University
The 63rd International Scientific Conference of Riga Technical University (https://www.rtu.lv/en/research/scientific-events/conferences/international-scientific-conference-of-rtu-1) unites academic and scientific audience and students to disseminate new research results in the fields of Scientific Problems of Engineering Economics of Construction and Real Estate Management, Regional and Territorial Development; Computer Science; Power and Electrical Engineering; Materials Science and Applied Chemistry; Humanities and Social Sciences; Architecture and Urban Planning; Construction Science; Electronics; Engineering, Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering; Transport; Bioenergy Technologies and Biotechnologies; Biomedical Engineering and Physics, Powder Materials; History of Engineering Sciences and Institutions of Higher Education; Telecommunications; E-study Technologies; Scientific Problems of Engineering Economics of Construction and Real Estate Management, Regional and Territorial Development; Mechanical Engineering Technology and Heat Engineering. Science Week of Riga Technical University on ICT Fest will be represented by the Institute of Radioelectronics with a poster session on Electronics. The latest scientists’ and PhD students’ research results will be shown and discussed.
ICT Prototypes and Measurement Equipment Exhibition
ICT Prototypes and measurement equipment exhibition will consolidate the students, scientific and industry professionals to share the innovation-oriented engineering solutions with the audience of interest.
