Session Abstract:An advancement of computing and communications is propelling the emergence of smart and connected communities (S&CC) which are positively impacting on the urban community lifestyles of nearly everyone regardless of the age and living standard. In these communities, all interactive information systems are capable of communicating with each other to allow coordination and improve safety security and efficiency. Key areas are Urban Agglomeration, Human Computing Interface, urban space planning, transportation, telecommunication, energy generation, distribution and consumption, employment and housing centers, and delivery of government services.
NFIC annual conference series

Keeping up to speed, especially in Silicon Valley, is crucial for today’s engineers and scientists. Possessing adequate knowledge to make reasoned decisions regarding an emerging technology’s importance plays an essential role in professional career success. The NFIC conference is organized to provide engineers and scientists with an effective means to achieve that goal.

The joint IEEE-NATEA conference on an emerging technology is aimed to provide IEEE and NATEA members with an inexpensive solid overview of a technology that may affect their work and careers in the near future. This annual conference series have been traditionally held at Stanford University with the help of the IEEE student chapter there.
Vision and Mission Statement

Co-organized initially by IEEE Computer Society Silicon Valley Chapter and NATEA in 1999, the New Frontiers in Computing Conference started providing computer and engineering professionals with enough technical information on a developing field to make informed decisions as to its role in their professional careers. It has achieved this for the last years by presenting an inexpensive one-day conference on emerging technologies such as Cloud Computing, Nanotechnology, Multi Core Processors and RFID.
