Ibero-American Symposium on Computer Programming jointly held with the International Congress on Technology Education

The Ibero-American Symposium on Computer Programming (SIIPRIN) represents an Ibero-American meeting forum for researchers and professionals focused on the study and research of the different aspects involved in computer programming. Its goal is to foster the dissemination of works keeping in mind academic, scientific, and professional issues on this topic. SIIPRIN arises from the need to create and maintain a discussion forum among scientists, academics, and professionals interested in the study and research of computer programming in our society as well as in the academic arena. In this symposium, a meeting place was provided to present, disseminate, and discuss the results of ongoing or consolidated research conducted on this topic. As an implicit objective, it is intended to foster collaboration among the different stakeholders, where we expect to encourage the development of a scientific basis in this field. In this edition, the International Congress on Technology Education and Knowledge Management (CITEGC) was jointly held with the SIIPRIN. CITEGC is focused on the fields of new technologies applied to education and the development of knowledge management in organizations.

Sustainability and Resilience Conference: Mitigating Risks and Emergency Planning – Engineering Track

The Sustainability and Resilience Conference is an annual conference organized by the Deanship of Graduate Studies and Scientific Research at the University of Bahrain (UOB), and under the patronage of His Excellency, Prof. Ryadh Hamzah, President of the UOB. The concept of “Sustainability and Resilience” in itself is not new worldwide, yet still new to the Middle East region in general, and to the Gulf states in particular. In 2018, the first edition of the conference is conducted in collaboration with the Northumbria University in the United Kingdom and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and is dedicated to the main theme of “Mitigating Disaster and Emergency Planning” in three vital sectors: (1) Energy and Engineering, (2) Health and Science, and (3) Cyber Security and Networks. The conference is a great opportunity for positioning Bahrain as a “Regional Hub” for sustainability and resilience and provides participants (both academics and practitioners) with gigantic opportunities for knowledge sharing and experience exchange that would eventually accumulate in setting new policies and strategies.
