Sheffield Ambassador is doing the double with two events in 2018

Sheffield Ambassador is doing the double with two events in 2018

02 January 2018

This year is set to be busier than ever for one Sheffield ambassador, as she prepares to co-chair two events.

Lyudmila Mihaylova, Professor of Signal Processing and Control at the University of Sheffield, is local chair of the 10th IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing Workshop. This will be held at The Diamond – the new £81m home of the University of Sheffield’s engineering faculty – from 8 to 11 July 2018.

More than 200 delegates are expected to attend the event, which will not only showcase the best of the city but also the nearby Peak District, with a dinner at Chatsworth House.

Overlapping this is the 21st International Conference on Information Fusion, taking place at the University of Cambridge from 10 to 13 July. This is the premier forum for interchange of the latest research in data and information fusion, and its impacts on society. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to report on the latest scientific and technical advances.

For this event, Lyudmila called on the help of fellow University of Sheffield professor and ambassador, Visakan Kadirkamanathan, who will act as treasurer.

Lyudmila used the free advice and support of Marketing Sheffield’s Conference Ambassador Programme for these events and has since recommended the team’s services to other colleagues.

“Every little help makes a massive difference,” she said. “And while I don’t have any other conferences planned yet, there are some we’d like to take a look at. These two events are definitely enough to be getting on with for now!”

If you bring conferences to the city, or would like to, you could benefit from the free, expert support available from the ambassador team. You can find out more about it here.
