IEEE OES Malaysia




24th- 25th November 2020, IEEE OES Malaysia Virtual/Online Conference Platform

The 12th National Technical Seminar on Unmanned System Technology 2020(NUSYS’20) aimed at presenting current research being carried out in the listed area. The idea of the seminar is for the scientists, scholars, engineers and students from Universities in Malaysia and the industry to present ongoing research activities, and hence to foster research relations between the Universities and industries. The seminar provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. The seminar would offer a number of invited lectures from renowned speakers all over the country.

NUSYS’20 is the premier interdisciplinary platform for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Unmanned System Technology.
