International Conference on Industrial and Information Systems (ICIIS) is an International Conference Organised by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, in Collaboration with Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE), USA and IEEE Sri Lanka. We are hosting the ICIIS 2023, for the 17th time from 25th to 26th August 2023. The ICIIS, the first IEEE conference pioneered by a Sri Lankan institution, is organized as an annual conference since 2006, with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Indian Institutes of Technology sharing hosting duties biennial.
Innovation, Regeneration and Transformation are essential components in sustainable and thriving economies, industry and communities, especially in fields of engineering such as future energy, transport, communications, consumer electronics, computing, healthcare and manufacturing. With this view the ICIIS 2023 sets its theme “INNOVATE, REGENERATE and TRANSFORM: Advances in Engineering for Sustainable Growth”.
Over 160 technical paper submissions received from 14 countries, showcase the international recognition the conference has achieved. Also, the conference brings together local and international academics, postgraduates and undergraduates, as well as industry representatives under one roof with the objective of sharing knowledge, research collaborations and innovations. The diversification of the local research paper submission validates the local recognition achieved by ICIIS2023. Out of local paper submissions University of Peradeniya authored 30% whereas University of Moratuwa:20%, Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology, Sri Lanka: 20% , University of Jaffna:5% while rest of the 5% account for the other local universities. Further following the current buzz word artificial intelligence (AI) and learning technologies, more than 60% of the papers submitted are from the AI, Machine Learning and Intelligent systems.
Over the past eighteen (18) years, ICIIS has earned the recognition to facilitate the most versatile forum in South Asia attracting experts from all over the world to disseminate new knowledge and share expertise among researchers and engineers in the academia and the industry. At present, the conference and the proceedings hold an h-index of 32 with more than 7500 citations, according to the Google scholar metrics. It is envisaged that ICIIS will continue to expand its wings and be a pillar in the process of human evolution, by being a major platform for disseminating knowledge.
