Conference Proceedings

Since 2009, SiViRT students and faculty presented their research at several conferences. These conferences were held at the local, national, and even international levels. International conferences include locations across Asia, Africa, and Europe. SiViRT gives its students an opportunity to present their research at professional conferences. Some of these professional conferences are organized by IEEE, AIAA, ASME, and BMES. SiViRT presents at least 20 conference presentations a year on average.
