Welcome to ICETCT2016!

*** Registration for the conference is now closed. Thank you for your support. ***

We take immense pleasure in announcing that the Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering, Graphic Era University, Dehradun, is organizing an International Conference on Emerging Trends in Communication Technologies (ICETCT-2016) for faculty and professionals on November 18th and 19th, 2016.

The Conference on Emerging Trends in Communication Technologies is being organized with the aim of self upgradation and improvement in teaching skills of the faculty. Communications has been playing and will continue to play a vital role to meet the technical and tactical communication requirements specially in such inhospitable and difficult terrains of the country like Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh etc. where laying of optical cables may neither be possible nor commercially viable in near future. This Conference will also help teachers in exploring new areas of research in the field and upgrading the syllabi as per industrial requirements. There will be lectures by eminent researchers/professors/professionals in the related areas drawn from Defence Research & Development Organization, Indian Space Research Organization, Industry and academic institutions of national and international repute. The conference will be organized in different sessions relating to different areas.

Here are the conference details:
