The 13th Edition of IEEE Student Conference on Research and Development - IEEE SCOReD 2015, organized by the APU IEEE Student Branch in collaboration with IEEE Malaysia Section, took place successfully on the 13th and 14th December 2015 at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

The Conference was an overwhelming success, attracting 200 delegates, speakers and researchers from different parts of the world in which they provided great intellectual and social interaction for the participants. A large group of well-known experts in their respective fields participated in the conference.  This huge cross-disciplinary event provided unique opportunities for researchers and practitioners to not only discuss latest trends in their field of expertise but expose to latest developments in neighboring related fields.

IEEE SCOReD 2015 was inaugurated by Prof. Ron Edwards, Deputy Vice Chancellor Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation (APU) and Associate Prof. Zuhaina Zakaria, Chair IEEE Malaysia Section on the 13th of December 2015. There were four keynote speeches delivered in the Conference that include “Smart Grid Research & Issues” by  Assoc Prof Dr Izham bin Datuk Zainab Abidin, “Big Data Initiatives: A Malaysian Perspective” by  Prof Dr Rajasvaran Logeswaran,  “Benefit of Satellite Communication in Today’s Society”  by Assoc Prof Ir Dr Mandeep Singh and “Towards Silicon MOS Quantum Dot Spin Qubits” by Dr Lai Nai Shyan.

IEEE SCOReD 2015 organised by APU received 240 research papers out of which 140 quality  papers were selected in a rigorous and stringent review process. APU organizing team was able to bring in 200% increase in research paper submission as compared to last year’s submission, a record in IEEE SCOReD history as on date.

SCOReD is a series of highly successful Asia Pacific regional conference focusing on students at higher learning institutions in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and other related field is organized by IEEE Malaysia since 2001.
