Int’l conference looks into advanced communication technologies

An international conference on advanced technologies for communications (ATC 2019) was opened in Hanoi on October 17, providing a platform for Vietnamese and foreign scientists to share information on relevant fields.

The three-day event, held by the Radio and Electronics Association of Vietnam, the New York-based IEEE Communications Society and the Hanoi-based University of Transport and Communications, attracts more than 200 delegates from 26 countries, including those from Vietnamese ministries, sectors, universities and research institutes, along with domestic and foreign businesses.

Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Pham Hong Hai said telecommunication and communication technologies play a crucial role in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Meanwhile, smart cities and e-government are among the targets Vietnam is aiming at.

Therefore, to soon become a digital country, Vietnam needs to share and learn ideas and experience from international experts and scientists, especially in advanced telecom and IT technologies, he noted.

About 70 speeches will be delivered during the ATC 2019, focusing on the 5G network and its application, smart transport systems, integrated networks, electronics, antenna and transmission, signal processing, and microwave engineering.

Organisers said they have received 125 reports from over 420 speakers of 26 countries. Most of them are in-depth studies with many discoveries and new tests about the most advanced telecom and IT technologies.

The conference is also a chance for scientists and businesses to introduce their research findings and transfer technologies.

The latest technologies of many tech groups like VNPT, Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz, Alongis Corporation, and Savis Technology Group, are also being showcased at the event.
