HISTELCON — 2017 IEEE HISTory of ELectrotechnolgy CONference
07 Aug 2017 - 08 Aug 2017 • 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.
