The IEEE I2MTC 2018 – International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference was held in between May 14th and 17th, 2018 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, Houston, TX.
The IEEE I2MTC is one of the most important IEEE conferences in the field of instrumentation and measurement, and is dedicated to advances in measurement methodologies, measurement systems, instrumentation, and sensors in all areas of science and technology.
A wide spectrum of research results were presented, with potential practical applications in current industrial technology, as well as industry and application driven developments. Members from the UH-based brain-machine interfaces lab held a booth and displayed projects and shared findings with colleagues and conference attendees. Projects such as Your brain on Art, with a live demonstration of controlling a musical instrument with Electroencephalography waves and exoskeleton-based projects for children with neuromuscular disorders and adults with spinal cord injury were also demonstrated. The group consisted of undergraduates, masters and PhD students and professors.
It was great to see so many HOU Sec student members from UoH volunteering during the conference to help with the logistics. The conference was a huge success and gathered more than 400 attendees this year including delegates from academia, undergraduate, graduate and PhD students, researchers, and professionals from industry with different technology backgrounds.
