Continuing the tradition of IEEE GEM (2009-2016) the conference organising committee is proud to introduce IEEE GEM 2018 to be held in the Alice Perry Engineering Building, at the National University of Ireland Galway, August 15th – 17th.
It is a great pleasure to introduce you to IEEE GEM 2018 and invite your participation in this year’s conference. In bringing the conference to its current state of organization I have had the opportunity to work with an amazing team of volunteers – I would like to thank all of you sincerely for your efforts to date; today, IEEE GEM has a line-up of 9 inspiring keynote speakers; 3 topical panel sessions and 2 challenging hands-on technical workshops. Our venue, the Alice Perry Engineering Building, at the National University of Ireland Galway has capacity for up to 24 speakers sessions – now we wait for your research contributions to complete what will be an inspirational conference program.
Peter Corcoran, Conference Chair IEEE GEM 2018
