ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

It is with great pleasure that we announce the SAUPEC/RobMech/PRASA 2019 incorporating the 27th Southern African Universities Power Engineering Conference, the 11th Robotics and Mechatronics Conference of South Africa and the 29th Annual Symposium of the Pattern Recognition Association of South Africa. This flagship Southern Africa regional conference will be hosted by the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering of Central University of Technology, Free State in conjunction with the South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE). SAUPEC, PRASA and RobMech brings together experts from the industry, academics and students in electrical engineering, pattern recognition, robotics and mechatronics to present research papers, network and expand the fraternity that has been built as part of the SAUPEC, PRASA and RobMech legacies. The conference will incorporate the Eskom Tertiary Education Support Programme (TESP) report-back meeting.
