The Sri Lanka Technological Campus (SLTC) announced via press release that it will be hosting its first-ever International Symposium on Industrial Systems (InSys) on December 18 at its facility in Padukka.

Organized by the SLTC Office of Research & Innovation (ORIS), this one-day symposium will gather industrial experts, academics and researchers from local and overseas universities to a common platform to disseminate their latest research findings and exchange views and ideas under the theme 'Innovations for a Sustainable Future', the release added.

"By 2050, this planet will have more than nine billion people living in it. If we don't change anything in the way we live, manufacture goods, and innovate, then we will need the resources of almost three of our planets to meet the demands of the people. This symposium will be an opportunity to learn and study the possibilities of how we can make decisive contributions to innovative and sustainable solutions to meet these global challenges," said SLTC President Ranjith Rubasinghe.

The reputed panel of keynote speakers comprises 3 IEEE fellows, including King's College London Department of Informatics Professor Arumugam Nallanathan, Australian National University Research School of Engineering Director/Head Professor Saman Halgamuge, and Texas Tech University Professor of Mathematics Bejoy Ghosh.

Also on the panel will be Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure Secretary Wasantha Deshapriya, who will speak on a sustainable future for technology innovations. Deshapriya has been a prominent figure in Sri Lanka's endeavour towards achieving an e-Government through the "Re-Engineering Government" programme.
The Symposium will be conducted through two technical sessions; one for researchers to present their latest research findings in the areas of Communication Engineering, Dynamical Systems, Robotics and Controls, and a workshop on Emerging Technologies in Mobile Communications for local engineers. The workshop will be conducted by Dr Himal A Suraweera from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, at the University of Peradeniya Faculty of Engineering.

An exhibition of innovative product development by engineering undergraduates will be organized as part of the symposium.
Over 100 local and international researchers, academics and industrialists are expected to participate in the symposium. Some of the ongoing research that will be discussed at this Symposium will include: a variable selection method for increasing classification accuracy; the survey on nonlinear phase noise compensation techniques in optical fiber communication; time-dependent diffusion coefficient of zooplankton in an interactive environment; and a survey on digital nonlinearity compensation techniques for optical fiber communication systems.

The Symposium is open to the public, concluded the press release.
