2018 IEEE Annual Green Technologies Conference
The IEEE Green Technologies Conference (GreenTech) was conceived to address one of the most pressing challenges of our time–securing green and clean energy sources for the 21st century to protect the environment and help build a more resilient power grid. GreenTech is now in its 10th year, and the hope is to draw insights and encourage collaboration from many disciplines and backgrounds in order to address these challenges.
The 2018 IEEE Green Technologies Conference theme is “Smart City.”
Smart cities seek to increase efficiency and improve quality of life by creating systems that reduce costs and improve services through connectivity and automation, incorporating techniques from sensing to analytics and leveraging the complementary technologies of IoT, wireless, and virtualization to deliver scalable, trusted and reliable solutions.
Message from the Chair
Welcome to the GreenTech 2018 of Smart City in Austin, an exciting musical capital of the world.
A rich conference program has been carefully developed that include: keynote speakers from government and industry, great panel sessions & speakers with diverse topical areas, along with technical researched papers as well as workshops. The conference will have exhibits, organized technical tours and social/networking opportunities.
