IEEE and IEEMA to Co-Sponsor INTELECT Conference & Exhibition
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 29 July 2014 – Three IEEE societies and the Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers' Association (IEEMA) will co-sponsor the IEEE-IEEMA INTELECT Conference & Exposition from 22-24 January 2015 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, India. The conference theme is Smart Electricity for Emerging Markets, and the exposition will focus on the connected intelligence in the Electricity of Things.
IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society, and IEEE Power & Energy Society will produce the event's conference portion, which will feature globally renowned keynote speakers and high-caliber panelists, as well as user-experience pavilions showcasing cutting-edge innovations and future technologies on H3O, Digital Smart Cities, and Smart Rural Electrification.
"As a global organization, IEEE has a strong interest in serving technology professionals in India, and IEEE Computer Society is very pleased to be helping co-found a brand new event that centers on such a promising and essential future technology as smart electricity," said Angela Burgess, executive director of IEEE Computer Society.
INTELECT is designed to draw builders, architects, city planners, energy and government officials, transportation industry representatives, venture capitalists, utilities, contractors, consultants, academia, and others interested in learning about new technological advancements and knowledge to smart electricity.
"India is fast becoming more urbanized and digitized to adapt to the growing aspirations of the large young population. Its impact on electricity demand and consumption will be significant. IEEMA, as the voice of the Indian electrical sector, is privileged to partner with IEEE, which can provide invaluable global knowledge and expertise," said Sunil Misra, Director General, IEEMA.
The event is expected to feature about 20,000 square meters of exhibit space with over 200 exhibitors, and attract 20,000 expo visitors and 1,500 conference attendees from around the world.
"The electric utilities of the world are having to share space with a growing renewables industry, which includes solar, wind, and hydro," said Patrick Ryan, Executive Director of IEEE Power and Energy Society. "However, energy storage and microgrids are quickly gathering momentum, and it's this kind of forum where industry professionals can network and share trending information."
"IEEE Communications Society is proud to announce its sponsorship of INTELECT 2015," said Sergio Benedetto, President of IEEE Communications Society. "Effectively addressing many of the world's Public Imperatives depends on intelligent creation, use, and distribution of energy."
