Message From Organizing Committee Chair

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee members, it is my privilege to welcome all participants to the 4th IEEE-GCC Conference & Exhibition on Techno-Industrial Innovations. We would like to thank you for coming to IEEE-GCC and we hope you will enjoy the conference technical programs and exhibition.

The upcoming meetings in this conference series follow the great success of the previous three IEEE-GCC conferences held at the same venue, Kingdom of Bahrain. The IEEE-GCC conference provides a leading international forum for researchers and practitioners (1) to present the state-of-art of electrical & electronics technologies, (2) to examine performance characteristics of various approaches in the implementation challenges of innovative and upcoming technologies, (3) to cross-fertilize ideas on the development of technologies that can have great influence and impact on major industry.

The conference is focusing on the progress and future of Electrical & Electronics technologies. We hope to establish a permanent forum for the exchange of a broad spectrum of view points (end users, designers, manufacturers, researchers, etc.) and to bring together the knowledge of the entire scientific and technical community working in the field by mixing traditional Academic oral paper presentations with invited and special presentations from industry.

In this conference, we have attracted 101 presentations and 26 poster papers covering various areas that are of great benefit to both academic and industrial communities in our region. The conference speakers will cover areas such as industrial standards, Next Generation IT Network, electronic power & control, Oil & Gas applications and many other topics. The goal of these integrated initiatives is to enhance technological advances and applications in selected key areas by combining the collective expertise of various entities and technical societies who otherwise individually address only parts of the overall problem.

I thank all the authors and panelists for the high technical quality of their presentations, the session chairs and co-chairs for their technical expertise, the members of the Organizing and Technical Committees for their excellent work in reviewing and selecting the papers received, and the Steering Committee members for their unlimited support towards achieving a successful conference.
