The Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB) has announced that it will host the upcoming International Congress and Conferences on Computational Design and Engineering (I3CDE) 2019 from 7 to 10 July at Park Royal Penang Resort.
The northwest state of Malaysia is the first international destination to host this Korean-owned congress outside its home country of Korea.
PCEB CEO Ashwin Gunasekeran said: "We are proud to welcome the upcoming I3CDE congress to Penang as the state is known as the 'Silicon Valley of the East' for its industries, and is one of Malaysia's most vital economic powerhouses.
"We are always looking to expand and improve on the Information Technology industry, as well as the Electric & Electronic and Manufacturing industry as they are recorded in the annual review published by the PCEB as one of the main contributors to Penang’s economy."
The I3CDE is organised by the Society for Computational Design and Engineering from Korea and co-hosted by buildingSMART Korea, Asian Conference on Design and Digital Engineering (ACDDE), The Korea Contents Association, Korea Smart Factory Foundation and Korea Smart Manufacturing Industry Association.
The event ranges from traditional computational design in all industrial areas to the new ‘fourth industry’ issues such as big data and deep learning.
