Keynote speaker sessions at ICICT

ICICT is not new to IBA. It is now a regular feature and is famous for its keynote speeches, peer reviewed technical sessions, tutorials and workshops. Hats off to its organizers (Dr. Waseem Khan and his team), who have worked very hard to arrange a number of interesting keynote speeches for the conference this time.

The first keynote session has been arranged on 15th August from 12:00 to 2:00pm, which will be presided by Dr. Khalid J Siddiqui of SUNY Fredonia, USA. Speakers in this session are Dr. Saeed Ghani (IBA Pakistan), Dr. Javed I. Khan (Kent State USA), Dr. Abbas K. Zaidi (George Mason USA), and Dr. Ahad Siddiqui (Taiba KSA). Two invited speaker sessions have also been arranged on the same day, where Dr. Qasim Sheikh (ICT R&D), Dr. Amir Qayum (MAJU) Dr. Ashraf Iqbal (LUMS), Dr. Zaheeruddin Asif (IBA), Dr. Sharifullah and Dr. Mudassar Farooq of NU will be presenting their research ideas.

On the second day of conference, the keynote session begins at 8:30am, which will be presided by Dr. Abad Ali Shah of UET Lahore Pakistan. Speakers in this session are Dr. Khalid Siddiqui (SUNY USA), Dr. El-Syed El-Alfy (KFUPM KSA), Dr. Wan Rozaini Sheik (Utara Malaysia), Dr. Akhtar Kalam (Victoria Australia) and Dr. Richard Harvey (East Anglia UK). Presenters in the second invited session are Dr. Arshad Siddiqui (IBA), Dr. Sajjad Haider (IBA) and Dr. Abad Ali Shah(UET Lahore).

With the presence of such dedicated scientists, the conference is set to create a remarkable impact in the academic fraternity and will open up new directions for research and development in the area of information and communication technology in Pakistan.

I wish this conference a great success.
