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. 

Vision and Mission Statement

Co-organized initially by IEEE Computer Society Silicon Valley Chapter and NATEA in 1999, the New Frontiers in Computing Conference aims to provide computer and engineering professionals with enough technical information on a developing field to make informed decisions as to its role in their professional careers. NFIC strives to make all this accessible through an inexpensive one-day conference on emerging technologies such as Cloud Computing, Nanotechnology, Multi Core Processors and RFID.
