Singapore

Founded in 1819 as a British trading colony, Singapore declared independence on  August 16. Over the next five decades, the country thrived as a financial and trading hub. Through global trade links and the establishment of various Free Trade Agreements, Singapore has become a highly developed market-based economy. Although mostly urbanized, Singapore still retains its Asian charm and heritage. A cosmopolitan city of approximately 5.8 million people, with a multi-ethnic population, Singapore’s culture, arts, architecture, hospitality and cuisines all reflect the blend of the East and West.

Languages: The four official languages are English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil. English is the language of administration and is widely spoken throughout Singapore.

Climate: Singapore is warm and humid all year round. Daily temperatures average 28 degrees Celsius. Abundant rainfall can be expected during the monsoon seasons from December to March and from June to September.

Currency: The official currency is the Singapore Dollar (SGD). Most foreign currencies are also accepted in major shopping centers and big department stores.

Electrical Connections:  The standard voltage in Singapore is 220 to 240 volts AC, 50 cycles per second. The country uses the type G three-pin power plug, similar to the United Kingdom. Most hotels provide adapters for electrical appliances of a different voltage on request.

Safety: Singapore is one of the safest cities in the world. It is generally safe to walk along the streets late at night. The country’s general economic prosperity and professional and effective police force contribute to the low crime rate.

Smoking: Smoking is prohibited in all air-conditioned areas (e.g. shopping centres, restaurants, cinemas, public buses, the MRT subway system, taxis, lifts), common corridors, void decks and staircases within residential buildings, outdoor hospital compounds, as well as within a five-meter radius from any entrance/exit and bus shelter. Within the Orchard Road precinct, smoking is allowed only in Designated Smoking Areas, marked by yellow boxes.

Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore

Jewel Changi Airport:  Changi Airport services 100 airlines flying to 380 cities in about 100 countries and territories worldwide. Each week, about 7,400 flights land or depart from Changi, with more than 65.6 million passengers passing through the airport every year. 

With the opening of entertainment and retail complex at the Jewel Changi Airport in 2019, visitors can enjoy its numerous attractions, shopping and dining facilities. Linked to three passenger terminals, Jewel’s highlights include the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, an indoor garden spanning five stories and the Changi Experience Studio, with displays and interactive games that showcase Changi’s aviation history. For business and transit passengers on the go, Jewel also houses a hotel and lounge to rest and rejuvenate.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a not-for-profit, global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962 that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Poster sessions will be scheduled for evening discussion as well. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.

Smoking is prohibited at ECI conferences and conference functions.
