Technologies for Smart Nation is this year’s theme of the IEEE TENCON. The international technical conference organized by IEEE Region 10 brought together researchers, educators, practitioners and students from across the academia, government, industry, and non-governmental organizations to discuss current trends and accomplishments in the fields of power electronics, wireless communications, signal processing, machine learning, computational intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), and intelligent transportation systems. All proceedings of the conference are published in the conference thumb drive and will appear in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, a Scopus-Indexed online database.
IEEE Region 10 covers different 57 sections, 6 councils, 21 subsections, 514 chapters, and 1159 student branches in the Asia Pacific Region.
The participation of the Thomasian delegates was made possible with the help of Engr. Manuel L. Dinio, a B.S. ElE 1965 alumnus and the president of J & O Realty and Development Corporation.
