SICE International Young Authors Award (SIYA)

The Society for Measurement and Control Engineers (SICE) aims to be the leading society in the field of measurement, control and system integration, with a global presence. More specifically, its aims are to strengthen collaboration with related organizations and support them for globalization, and also to foster young people who will lead the next generation in the field. As part of that, we have established the SICE International Young Authors Award (hereinafter referred to as SIYA) to encourage young researchers from Japan to carry out academic research and support their international activities.

We are looking for candidates for SIYA from the speakers of the 2021 IEEE/SICE International Symposium on System Integration (SII 2021). We are looking forward to receiving applications from researchers who meet the application requirements listed below.
