About The Conference
The Testing and Certification International Conference 2019 – Product Safety for Smart City will be held in Hong Kong, China, on 22-25 October 2019. The goal of the conference is to bring together leading engineers, scientists, researchers and academics from the world to discuss novel theories, technologies and applications in the areas of testing and certification. The conference will feature prominent keynote speakers as well as technical sessions.
Testing and certification has been identified by the HKSAR Government as one of the six industries where Hong Kong has good prospect for development. The Hong Kong Council for Testing and Certification (HKCTC) was established by the HKSAR Government in 2009 to lead, support, advance and promote the development of the industry. Hong Kong is in the leading position in providing academic training to Testing and Certification professionals up to Master degree level.
