Bandar Seri Begawan - Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) will be organising the International Conference on Soft Computing and Pattern Recognition (SoCPaR) for the first time here in Brunei from December 10 to 13 at the Lecture Theatre of The Core, UBD.
According to its press release, the conference is supported by the Machine Intelligence Research (MIR) Labs, a centre of research excellence and scientific network under the auspices of the IEEE Computer Society, USA in collaboration with the IEEE System, Man and Cybernetics (SMC) Society, USA.
IEEE is the largest professional engineering body in the world with over 400,000 members, many of who are policy makers at important multinational industry giants such as Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, National Instruments. Hewlett Packard, Volvo, BMW, Toyota, and so forth as well as at all other wide range of industries impacting world's industries and world economy.
SoCPaR 2012 will enable researchers in UBD and key industry players in Brunei Darussalam to engage directly with their international collaborators, particularly industries in the USA and the EU under MIR Labs in such a way that nationally critical and internationally appealing projects will not solely be in one place, but rather a collaborative effort involving MIR Labs globally.
MIR Labs has this unique feature compared to other international conferences because MIR Labs identify the needs of establishing such collaboration for particular regions, upcoming economies in the Asean region in particular thus this will have a big impact on research in industry and on UBD.
SoCPaR 2012 main focus will be on Innovating and Inspiring Soft Computing and Intelligent Pattern Recognition.
This is set with the aim of addressing state-of-the-art development in soft computing influencing electronic devices used at home such as washing machines, mobile phones, cars and so forth.
While in medical informatics, it includes expert systems used to diagnose patients, monitoring and assisting devices in rehabilitation, as well as national needs such as ATM's machines, stock market prediction, weather forecasting, assembly lines in manufacturing plants, flight navigation systems and others.
