About Me.

TENCON 2023 are delighted to showcase a number of workshops are sponsored and free to attend with your registration. Here are the list of workshops that TENCON2023 has to provide:

Pre-conference Workshops


Pre-conference workshop on SDGs and Humanitarian Technology (Full day workshop)


How to propose Humanitarian technology to serve the community's needs. The pre-conference workshop is planned to take place on October 31. It would draw the interest of the attendants who are keen or interested in joining the force as Humanitarian technology volunteers, as pre-registration is required. The morning will be 2030 SDGs game with certified facilitators to lead the sessions 

How can we transform our world by 2030?

The 2030 SDGs games simulation experience!


In the afternoon, we will conduct humanitarian technology proposal workshop in which we will invite a suitable trainer suggested by HTB and SIGHT to lead the workshop.

Pre-conference Workshops


Pre-conference workshop on Climate Change (Half-day)


Climate change is now a burning issue in the whole world. It basically refers to a long term change in global temperature and weather pattern. It is well understood that the major driver of the climate change is various human activities (burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas) that cause greenhouse gas emissions (e.g. carbon dioxide and methane).


Considering this burning issue, IEEE R10 Director has formed an AdHoc on Climate Change to recommend possible activities to be carried out by the R10 committees to create awareness among R10 members as well as discuss causes, adverse effects and possible technical solutions. In the long run, these activities will surely enhance member engagement and satisfaction in R10.


In TENCON 2023, R10 AdHoc Committee on Climate Change will host a Climate Awareness Forum

involving the IEEE members, interested non-members including relevant stakeholders and policy makers. The forum will discuss about explaining possible threats in our lives due to the climate change and the main effects of climate change as of following:  

  • Temperature rise: hot days, heat waves, illnesses

  • Storms: extreme rainfall/flooding, storms, cyclones, hurricanes, typhoons

  • Increased drought: agricultural/ecological droughts, Deserts are expanding,

  • A warming, rising ocean: sea levels to rise, threatening coastal and island communities.

  • Loss of species: Forest fires, extreme weather, and invasive pests and diseases

  • Not enough food: extreme weather events- hunger and poor nutrition, Fisheries, crops, and livestock, ocean marine resources, Arctic regions

  • More health risks: harming health, through air pollution, disease, extreme weather events, forced displacement, pressures on mental health, and increased hunger and poor nutrition

  • Poverty and displacement: Floods, Heat, Water scarcity
