IEICE Malaysia Section (2015-2017)

This Section endeavors to support the IEICE mission with the aim of promotion of scholarly growth, industrial advancement, and cultivation of human resources. Most of relevant researchers in Malaysia have contributed in several journals published under the different societies of IEICE over the years and we observe the growing number of publications in recent years. We also observe the growing IEICE membership in Malaysia with a significant number of IEICE members from several academic and non-academic organizations in Malaysia. As of March 2016, we recorded a total of 102 members with IEICE Overseas membership.

However, to date we have no proper and formal platform for conducting IEICE activities in Malaysia. Therefore, with the formation of this Section, we hope that we can better facilitate and support all upcoming IEICE activities to be held in Malaysia. This Section will also act as a liaison between IEICE and the members in the proposed Section as well as the IEICE member communities across Malaysia. We shall be responsible in disseminating and sharing the relevant information to all members while providing the necessary follow-up support especially to Malaysian students who studied in Japan and returned to the homeland, of which was the original objective of the establishment of IEICE International Sections Representative Program.

This website covers our current research scope and technology focus, organization and role assignment, some recent IEICE related activities, strategies to extend the membership along with upcoming plans and key milestones. We believe you will more understand about IEICE Malaysia Section through this website and find expected collaborations with the Section or Section members.
