The IEEE Tomsk Joint Chapter and Student Branch jointly with IEEE Russia
Siberia Section hold the next SIBCON conference as one of major highlight.
Last seven SIBCON conferences have a success, so this event is biannual.
Indeed, it is an event which proved to be of a big scientific value for
control and communication technologies for engineers, scientists and
students. The overall objective of this important scientific event is to
contribute to the development of R&D activities and investments in all the
fields related with control and communications in academia, industry and
universities in Siberia. Another very important aims set for the conference
are to offer a forum for scientists and engineers from around the world
where they can meet, present and discuss their research findings.
It is also intended to offer them the opportunity to interact with
their peers and to stimulate fruitful cooperation ties among them.
Tomsk, one of the Siberian few remaining old cities, play for centuries
one of the most important role of knowledge and science. It was a place
where experts and knowledge seekers alike came from many places
to meet, in order to learn, exchange ideas and share experience. It
is also a city famous for the oldest university in Siberia which
is Tomsk State University. It was built in 1880 and open for students in

and establishments and were key partners in the organization of this event.
TPU making a real hub of knowledge from which many prominent scholars

and Tomsk Joint Chapter.
This SIBCON 2009 really has exceeded our expectations in participation.
Up to hundred papers were submitted, and the overall quality of which
was good. The conference website has full information concern venue,
