  • Conference background:

    WinTechCon was first held in 2018 with the intention of providing a forum for women technology leaders from India to present their work in emerging knowledge areas. The conference was attended by 200+ delegates and was a major success. It featured peer-reviewed paper presentations and posters, two keynote talks, two embedded tutorials, technology demonstrations, exhibit booths, and a panel discussion. The entire conference was managed by women leaders from leading industries in the space of semiconductors and electronic systems.
    Encouraged by the success of WinTechCon-2018, the second edition of the conference is planned in 2019. WinTechCon-2019 is organized by IEEE CAS Bangalore Chapter in association with IEEE WiE Council (Bangalore) and IEEE Bangalore Section.

    Call for Manuscripts:

    The conference welcomes the submission of previously unpublished manuscripts of high technical quality for presentation. There is also scope for technology demonstrations. The submissions will be reviewed critically and accepted papers, posters and technical demos will be showcased at the conference. While coauthors of papers, posters and demos may be men, the presenters at the conference must be women technologists from India.

    Submission of papers/tutorials/demos for WinTechCon 2019 are now closed

    Please view the proceedings of WinTechCon-2018 to get a feel for the technical program of WinTechCon. In 2019, the conference committee aims to have the proceedings archived in IEEE Xplore.
