Aim and Scope
The Special Session on “Women in Science & Engineering (WISE)” is led by the students of Sri Sairam Engineering College who are currently interning with MIT Square and volunteering with Raj Square Charity Foundation (RSCF), India. The special session is pleased to invite you to respond to our Call for Submissions for the IEEE International Conference on Smart Technologies for Smart Nations (SmartTechCon 2021), to be held from 15 - 17 July 2021 at the University Putra Malaysia (UPM), Malaysia.
To celebrate International Women in Engineering Day on June 23rd 2021, the women students from Sri Sairam Engineering College, Chennai mentored by Dr Sumathi S and Dr Mithileysh are organising a special session on “Women in Science & Engineering (WISE)”. This is part of the Standup India initiated by the Government of India and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) initiated by the United Nations.
In the last few years, technologies are constantly evolving and finding new applications in the field of engineering. This has motivated in promoting women engineers, scientists, educators and researchers for better recognition in the workplace and empower them for career advancement to contribute in the engineering developments. The special session will build a professional network of women engineers, scientists and technologists offering inspiration, support and professional development. By collaborating, we support and inspire women to achieve as engineers, scientists and as leaders; we encourage the education of engineering; and we support organisations with gender diversity and inclusion.
In collaboration with Raj Square Charity Foundation (RSCF), we would like to invite women engineers, scientists, educators, students and policymakers from academic sector, government, industry and non-governmental organizations to discuss, share and promote current works and recent accomplishments across all aspects of traditional and latest science and engineering topics.
Raj Square Charity Foundation is committed to provide comprehensive, affordable and quality educational services to the neediest and to make India a better nation with 100% literacy rate for all citizens by marching towards achieving various goals discussed and raised by the UNESCO.
