The 11th Siberian Conference on Control and Communications (SIBCON) co-sponsored and organized by joint EDS Tomsk Chapter, took place in Omsk, Russia, on May 21-23, 2015. This biannual meeting was sponsored by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research with technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE Russia Siberia Section.
Papers reporting various scientific topics were presented at the conference. The technical program consisted of contributed paper oral sessions. Various problems related to semiconductor materials, communication and control theory, sensors, and electron devices, with emphasis on both theory and applications, were considered.
The major goal of the conference was to bring together researchers from various fields, in order to present advances in the state-of-the art communication and control theory and technology. The real value of SIBCON is its role as a platform for personal contact and direct information exchange. Unified perspectives in this interdisciplinary field of advanced research were also achieved. The symposium has moreover proved to be particularly rewarding to every participant, in as much as most of them showed interest in sharing experiences and opinions in a cultural and historical perspective. That brought additional value to the conference which has thus been memorable.
The conference as a whole has demonstrated continuing interest in analysis and control methods for the considered problems. The SIBCON conference has furthermore been a great opportunity to realize a useful and productive bridge between the experienced IEEE members, National Instruments R&D employees, and the new incomers, and a starting point for innovative business ventures and relationships between NI and EDS members.
Omsk, the ancient town of Siberia, witnessed many exciting events in Russian history and still plays a very important role in its scientific and cultural life. The participants have moreover had the opportunity to enjoy the historical sites, as well as the beauties of the city in the famous "Dark Days" season.
We are very pleased that SIBCON conference has already gained the status of a significant and well-known event in Siberia.
