NFIC 2016

In recent years the inexorable growth of processing power and memory capacity has let us build machines capable of doing many jobs humans used to perform, and to assist in new and difficult tasks. Some day soon our Smart-Phones will be as intelligent as we are, and beyond that our machines will be capable of things we have never thought of because they will be doing the deep thinking for us.

The NFIC-2016 conference will explore the rapidly changing field of Cognitive Computing; where we are now with artificial intelligence and robotics, and what our future with the machines is going to look like.

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.


IEEE Computer Society of Silicon Valley

The IEEE Computer Society Silicon Valley Chapter has over 2,500 members. The CS promotes an active exchange of ideas and technological innovation among its members. It is the largest IEEE Computer Society Chapter in the world.

North America Taiwanese Engineering & Science Association (NATEA)

The North America Taiwanese Engineering & Science Association (NATEA) was founded on March 2, 1991 in Silicon Valley. Since then, NATEA has grown into twelve (12) Regional Chapters across North America with 2,200 members. Many members serve in leading-edge technical and managerial positions and are founders of some of the most successful high-tech companies.

IEEE Student Branch Stanford

The student branch of IEEE at Stanford University promotes services and organizes activities for the EE/CS graduate and undergraduate community at Stanford.
