Women in Engineering Conference (WIECON) is the flagship event of IEEE Bangladesh Section. It is a multidisciplinary conference organized with the objective of bringing together academicians, scientists, researchers from industry, research scholars, and students working in all areas of electrical and computer engineering. It was first organized in 2015 at BUET, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Since then IEEE Bangladesh Section partners with different Section, Sub-sections, and their affinity groups to host the conference. This year, IEEE Bangladesh Section and IEEE Bhubaneswar Sub-section jointly organized the 6th IEEE WIECON-ECE 2020 on 26th December and 27th December, 2020 along with their respective WIE AGs focusing on both theory and applications in the broad areas of Electrical Power Engineering, Advanced Computing, Communication Engineering, Robotics Engineering, and Mechanical engineering, Humanitarian Technology, Biomedical Engineering and Civil Engineering.
6th IEEE WIECON ECE received a good number of submissions more than 550. These submitted papers came from different corners of the world. All the submissions were subjected to a rigorous review by the members of the Technical committee and our expert subject reviewers around the world. After an intense scrutiny of reviews, we were pleased to present a high quality technical program with only 115 papers for presentation at the conference. IEEE PES Women in Power Summit was also conducted where students from various countries have participated.
