The Annual ShanghaiTech Symposium on Information Science and Technology (ASSIST) is an international forum that features fundamental research developments and groundbreaking technologies in the areas of electrical engineering, information engineering, computer science, and computational mathematics. Each year, we invite some of the most renowned researchers in the world from academia to present their latest research work and to discuss future research directions. The Symposium aims to bring the state of the art in research and industrial technologies to young faculty and graduate students in China, especially in the neighboring areas of Shanghai.
The first ASSIST held in 2015 focused on Data Science and Machine Learning. The second ASSIST held in 2016 focused on three main topics: Robotics, Virtual Reality, and Computing Theory and Systems. The third ASSIST held in 2017 focused on Artificial Intelligence. The fourth ASSIST held in 2018 focused on Computer Vision. The fifth ASSIST held in 2019 focused on Smart Life.
This year, we will relaunch our ASSIST series after the Covid-19 pandemic. Our ASSIST’s theme is carbon neutrality and connected intelligence. Our featured topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Intelligent Power and Energy Systems
• Advanced Power Conversion Techniques
• Decision Intelligence
• Edge Intelligence
• Energy Efficient Computing for the AI Era
The symposium is hosted by the School of Information Science and Technology, ShanghaiTech University. Jointly founded by Shanghai Municipal Government and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2013, ShanghaiTech University is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and to developing leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally.
