The University of Texas at San Antonio Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will host the 2nd Annual Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers System of Systems international conference April 15-18 at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio.
More than 200 attendees representing 15 countries including Australia, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, India, Japan and the United States are expected to attend. Conference highlights include tours and demonstrations from the research facilities at UTSA and Southwest Research Institute (SwRI).
System of systems technology involves organizational and industrial sectors working together efficiently to solve problems by integrating independent operational resources. The aerospace and defense industries have already embraced the technology which allows the integration of independent operational systems to create large "super systems" to complete a task.
"We will also announce a new national consortium that will bring military, industry and academia together to network to pursue large governmental contracts," said Mo Jamshidi, System of Systems Conference founder and UTSA Lutcher Brown Endowed Chaired Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Guest speakers include Ret. Gen. Don Walker, Aerospace Corp., Andrew Sage, George Mason University, George Wilber, Boeing Corp., Ret. Adm. Bobby Inman, University of Texas at Austin, Carl Siel, US Navy, Dale Compton, Purdue University, James Tien, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Lotfi Zadeh, University of California, Berkeley, Saeid Nahavandi, Deakin University of Australia and Walter Downing, SwRI.
