IEICE Beijing Section (2003 ~ 2019)
With the rapid development of engineering science, communication, electronics, and information and systems in recent decades, the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE) ranks as one of the largest institutes of engineers in Japan. Currently, it has 10 sections nationwide and 12 international sections.
IEICE Beijing Section was established in 2003 as one of the first four IEICE overseas sections. In the past 14 years, the number of IEICE overseas membership in China increased significantly from over 100 to nearly 1500, among which, the number of overseas membership in Beijing increased from several dozens to about 300. Most of them are from universities and research institutes, which are famous in the field of information and communication technology (ICT), including Tsinghua University (THU), Peking University (PKU), Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT), Beihang University (BUAA), Beijing Jiaotong University (BJTU), Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), Chinese Academy of Science (Institute of Information Engineering, Institute of Electrics, Institute of Microelectronics, Institute of Computing Technology, etc.), Chinese Academy of Engineering, etc.
The goal of IEICE Beijing Section is to promote the academic communication between China and Japan, and provide specific services to its members. First, it is going to invite distinguished professors and researchers to deliver special lectures to introduce their advanced R&D achievements. Second, it will technically co-sponsor international conference, symposium, workshop or similar event. Third, it will promote the communication and collaboration among section members and with other sections. In addition, it plans to encourage young researchers and students to join IEICE overseas membership. We hope these activities can deliver updated and useful information to more researchers and students in China and let them understand the academic research in Japan and the role of IEICE; promote the internationalization of IEICE; open a window for the outside world which let them know more about the academic activities in China.
