The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) hosted the International Conference on Industrial and Information Systems (ICIIS) for the 17th time from August 25-26, at Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Peradeniya.
The ICIIS, the first IEEE conference pioneered by a Sri Lankan institution, is organized as an annual conference since 2006, with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Indian Institutes of Technology sharing hosting duties biennial.
The conference received international recognition through the technical co-sponsorship of Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE).
At present, the conference and the proceedings hold an h-index of 32 with more than 7,500 citations, according to the Google scholar metrics.
Innovation, Regeneration and Transformation are essential components in sustainable and thriving economies, industry and communities, especially in fields of engineering such as future energy, transport, communications, consumer electronics, computing, healthcare and manufacturing. With this view the ICIIS 2023 set its theme ‘INNOVATE, REGENERATE and TRANSFORM: Advances in Engineering for Sustainable Growth’.
Over the past eighteen years, ICIIS has earned the recognition to facilitate the most versatile forum in South Asia attracting experts from all over the world to disseminate new knowledge and share expertise among researchers and engineers in the academia and the industry.
Over 160 technical paper submissions, received from 14 countries, showcase the international recognition the conference has achieved. It also received papers from many universities in Sri Lanka.
This diversification validated the local recognition achieved by ICIIS 2023. The 2023 IEEE 17th International Conference on Industrial and Information Systems (ICIIS) was organized jointly by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya and IEEE Central Region Subsection, Sri Lanka under the leadership of its chairperson Prof. Maheshi Dissanayake.
The conference consisted of three pre-conference workshops, two pre-conference tutorials and one special session.
The ICIIS 2023 held its inauguration session on August 25, from 8.55 am to 10.10 am at EOE Pereira Theatre at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya, with Prof. M. D. Lamawansa Vice Chancellor, University of Peradeniya, as the Chief Guest, and Eng. Thanuja Samaranayake, Head of Global EHS & Risk Management, Ansell as Guest of Honour.
The conference received the Gold sponsorship from Ansell, Silver sponsorship from Synopsis and Bronze sponsorship from Vega and London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG). The SLTMobitel provided the data sponsorships.
The conference concluded after six technical paper presentation sessions, with a total of 21 tracks and three keynotes on August 26. At the closing ceremony, the best papers in six technical tracks were recognized and the conference was handed over to IIT Madras for ICIIS 2024.
It is envisaged that ICIIS will continue to expand its wings and be a pillar in the process of human evolution, by being a major platform for disseminating knowledge.
