 Offline venue


Online oral report


By presenting their research achievements, participants engaged in cutting-edge academic discussions with experts to enrich their own knowledge. Many scholars said that they had gained a lot, and the wonderful conference ended with the discussion of experts and scholars - leaving all wanting more. Meanwhile, the Organizing Committee of the Conference also announced that the fourth IEEE ICFTIC 2022 has also entered the preparatory phrase. We wished each other well and promised to meet again.


AEIC as the organizer has taken practical actions to facilitate the conference. In the future, AEIC will continue to adhere to the spirit of “professionalism, dedication and concentration” and keep delivering high-quality academic exchange activities to enhance collaborative research and engagement.
