Another kind of important activity of IEICE Beijing Section is to co-sponsor international conference, symposium, workshop or similar event. Almost 20 international events have been technically co-sponsored in the past 14 years, e.g., Asia-Pacific Conference on Communications (APCC), International Symposium on the History of Indigenous Knowledge (ISHIK), Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP), and Asia-Pacific Conference on Synthetic Aperture Radar (APSAR). To co-sponsor international conferences, IEICE Beijing Section has worked closely with IEICE Headquarters, Chinese Institute of Communication (CIC), and Korea Institute of Communication Society (KICS) by delivering Call For Papers to section members and encouraging them to attend the conference.
Besides co-sponsoring international conference, we also pay attention to international and cooperative postgraduate education. We technically co-sponsored International Project Based Learning (Int. PBL) course annually carried out among Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (China), University of Electro and Communications (Japan), and Hanyang University (Korea). PBL was designed to cultivate the academic ability and international outlook of the postgraduates based on three self-developed academic courses, including wireless network, robot control and digital signal processing. It is a very good chance for students to know research activities and academic organizations in Japan. Some students showed their interest to join IEICE.
By co-sponsoring the academic events above, we successfully enhanced the existence of IEICE in China and even all over the world through the attendees of the international events.
