SAUPEC/RobMech/PRASA 2021 Conference


It is with great pleasure that we announce the SAUPEC/RobMech/PRASA 2021 incorporating the 29th Southern African Universities Power Engineering Conference, the 13th Robotics and Mechatronics Conference of South Africa and the 31th Annual Symposium of the Pattern Recognition Association of South Africa. This flagship Southern Africa regional conference will be hosted by the School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering of the North-West University, in conjunction with the South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE). SAUPEC, RobMech and PRASA brings together experts from the industry, academics and students in engineering, computer science, pattern recognition, robotics and mechatronics to present research papers, network, and expand the fraternity that has been built as part of the SAUPEC, RobMech, and PRASA legacies. The conference will incorporate the Eskom Tertiary Education Support Programme (TESP) report-back meeting.
