Back to News »

The 7th Symposium on Sensorless Control for Electrical Drives will be held at the Sofitel Resort and Spa, Nadi.

For the first time, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) will be hosting the 7th Symposium on Sensorless Control for Electrical Drives (SLED) in Fiji from 5 to 6 June 2016.

The Symposium, which is organised by The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) School of Engineering and Physics and held at the Sofitel Resort and Spa in Nadi, will be officially opened by Fiji’s Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts, Honourable Dr Mahendra Reddy on June 5 2016.

SLED provides a forum for international experts to present and discuss the latest developments in the field of Sensorless Control of Electrical Drives. In doing so, it allows all engineers from industry and academia to learn about the status, trends and applications in the engineering field.

The Symposium is sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications Society and IEEE Power Electronics Society.

According to the head of School of Engineering and Physics, Professor Maurizio Cirrincione, most advanced technological research and innovation will be presented during the two-day Symposium.

With presenters and guest speakers coming from Germany, Japan, Italy, India, China, Korea and the United States of America, Professor Maurizio is confident that the Symposium will put Fiji in the centre of attention for international researchers.

Some of the activities of the symposium include tutorial sessions, guest lectures and panel discussions.

IEEE is the world's largest association of technical professionals with more than 433,000 members in chapters around the world. Its objectives are the educational and technical advancement of electrical and electronic engineering, telecommunications, computer engineering and allied disciplines.
