​​​The KAUST-NSF Research Conference is a tradition that started in 2014, led by faculty in the EE program at KAUST. The topic of this fifth cycle of the conference is environmental monitoring and sensing. These applications involve collecting and transferring data using sensor communication networks, analyzing data using signal processing, and making real-time decisions with the aid of high performance computing and machine actuation, thereby completing the cyber-physical systems cycle. Conference topics include the domains of urban, ocean, and agricultural applications, along with the foundational areas of communications and networking, signal processing, and control. The conference will engage internationally leading authorities, industry experts, fellow in-Kingdom researchers, and KAUST researchers.​
