The Vietnamese Association for Computing, Engineering, Technology and
Science (VACETS) is pleased to announce the fourth VACETS Technical International
Conference, the VTIC2002. The conference will be held on May 10 and 11,
2002 at George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia, USA. The theme of
this year's conference is "Technology and Industry for a New Era."
The conference will concentrate on those industries and technologies that
will be making global commercialized impacts in the near future.
VTIC2002 will provide an excellent opportunity for engineers, scientists,
academics, students, and investors to meet for information exchange, networking,
friendship, and potential business partnerships. Participants in the past
VTIC conferences have included professionals, academics, students and
entrepreneurs in the start-up and/or high-tech companies.
Many of the conference participants hold senior positions in the various
government agencies, and private industries. They are important decision
makers in formulating policies, establishing financial and technical co-operations
with their counterparts in research & development, and marketing or
acquisition of their technology products.
Another important goal of this year's conference is to encourage the participation
of the younger generation of engineers/scientists and the new graduates
students in the metropolitan Washington DC area. Some of these younger
engineers/scientists will be presenting their research papers at this
year's conference for the first time.
The first day of the conference starts technical track with a plenary
session on Economics & Management in the morning and parallel tracks
in the afternoon: Biomedical & Medical Technologies, Telecommunications
& Signal Processing, Applied Science, and Computer Engineering and
Applications. The second day of the conference will be devoted to workshops,
tutorial and panel discussions, covering a wide range of topics. The full
conference program can be reviewed at http://www.vacets.org/vtic02/vtic2002.html
The highlight of the annual conference will be its banquet in the evening
