Information Support


The 15th Siberian Conference SIBCON-2021 aims to offer opportunities to learn and to share information on the latest advances in control systems, communications, and robots. It will be held in Kazan, Russian Federation, on May 13–15, 2021. The conference is organized by the Tomsk IEEE units and National Instruments Rus R&D on a regular basis in order to promote interdisciplinary discussion and interaction among scientists and engineers with an emphasis on the IEEE membership. The conference is a platform for the presentation and discussion of new fundamental and applied outcomes in electron communication systems, control and robotics. The conference provides opportunity to present papers and establish scientific and educational contacts. While the scientific program is expected to create stimulating professional interaction, the magic of Kazan, hot spring atmosphere and wealth of historic architecture promise a pleasant and memorable stay.

1. The Fundamental Problems of Communication and Control Theory.
2. Robots and Automation.
3. The Computer Control, Sensors and Systems.

The conference will include plenary sessions with invited speakers, parallel thematic sessions with oral presentations, and a social program.
