On September 16-28, 2016, hosted by Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence, joint supported by IEEE CAS, IEICE ESS(Japan), ETCI(Thailand), the 16th International Symposium on Communications and Information Technologies(ISCIT) was held in Qingdao Fuxin Hotel and achieved great success. The conference was joint held by Shandong University, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, China University of Petroleum, China Unicom, China Electronics Technology Group, Beijing Huace Xintong Companyand many other research institutions and enterprises.
The conference has 430 academic articles submitted, and finally 132 high-quality papers were accepted. The three-day conference consisted of keynotes, sessions, workshops and other parts.
The theme of this conference is “The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Communication Technology Industry”. Professor Shuoyan Li, member of IEEE and one of the inventors of the network coding, made a keynote report on “Network Coding and Its Application”; Professor Weiping Huang, Chairman of the Conference, Head of School Of Information Science And Engineering of Shandong University and Chief Scientist of Hisense, made a keynote report on “Optical Technology in Next Generation Wireless Networks”; Professor Songlin Sun, Chairman of the Technical Committee of the Conference and Professor of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, gave a keynote report on “The Challenge of Artificial Intelligence to the Communication Technology Industry” Professor LU Kejie from the University of Puerto Rico in the United States made a keynote report on "Future Wireless Networks"
Four special seminars wereset up during the conference, including telecom technology big data by China Unicom, Tiandi integration network by China Electronics Technology Group, petroleum communication technology by China University of Petroleum , 5G and future network technologies by Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. More than 150 experts and scholars from China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Thailand, the United States, and the United Kingdom have fully discussed the latest academic and scientific research results.
Participants collaborated themselves with the world's most advanced research work in information technology, communication engineering, computer science, data science and other related fields, learned the latest research results in the fields, and conducted face-to-face communication with the authors of the results; They also communicated directly with information and communication experts from Asia-Pacific region, expanding the international network of academic circle and industrial field as well as creating opportunities for cooperation between the industry, universities and research institutes.
ISCIT is held in rotation from five Asia-Pacific countries including China, Australia, Thailand, South Korea and Japan. Every year, a large number of outstanding academic achievements emerge on the conference. Having great influence in the Asia-Pacific region, ISCIT is a top-tier academic conference of communication and information science. The conference was held in Beijing and Hangzhou before, and this is the third time that it comes to China. With the rapid development of new technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence, the hosting of ISCIT has not only greatly improved Qingdao's position in the information and communication industry, but also brought more opportunities for cooperation and development to the city.
