RTSRE — Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education Conference
ID
878068
Dates
18 Jun 2017 - 22 Jun 2017
Location
San Diego, United States
Abstract
The Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education: Past, Present, Future conference will focus on the use of remotely-located, relatively small, typically optical robotic telescopes to support, promote and drive research undertaken by high school and undergraduate students for scientific research, while also addressing educational outcomes and uses. The conference will aim to tie diverse strands into a coherent story of where we have been (the past), where we are now (the present), and outline the pathways and challenges going forward (the future). In doing so, we endeavor to provide a synthesis of the relatively disconnected communities surrounding remote and robotic telescopes, scientific research, and astronomy education to provide a global picture of the field in its current state. Published, peer-reviewed conference proceedings will feature invited and contributed papers, as well as poster summaries.

HISTELCON — 2017 IEEE HISTory of ELectrotechnolgy CONference
ID
843433
Dates
07 Aug 2017 - 08 Aug 2017
Location
Kobe, Japan
Abstract
HISTELCON 2017 will focus mainly on the scientific incentive and development methodology as well as the technological impact on quality-of-life of any innovation in electrical engineering and computing, and hence it will welcome any historic expertise of scientific and technological achievement, which has already been approved as an IEEE Milestone or may be a candidate for the IEEE Milestone. As most people know, on January 17 in 1995 the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake struck Kobe city, causing the catastrophic damage of 5,500 deaths, more than 150,000 collapsed homes, and over 300,000 people evacuated to more than 1,000 shelters. Thus, hopefully HISTELCON 2017 could bring significant benefits to the attendees in terms not only of acquiring technical expertise but also of observing miraculous post-quake recovery.
