The 6th annual MICS day will be held on March 6, 2018. Like the previous year, this year’s event will also be held jointly with the Center for Embedded Systems for Critical Applications (CESCA) within the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). We welcome attendants from industry, research institutes, and government agencies. This is a good opportunity for both MICS guests and members to introduce their works and establish future collaborations. If you are interested in attending MICS Day, please contact Dong Ha (
