Dr. (Mrs.) Maheshi Dissanayake (Ph.D.), a Senior Member of IEEE, started her IEEE journey in 2011 and has been actively contributing as an IEEE volunteer at the University of Peradeniya Sri Lanka, the Central Region Subsection of Sri Lanka, the Sri Lanka Section as well as at the Region 10 level.

Bombay Section has successfully organized TENCON1989, the flagship conference of the Regional 10. Attended by more than 3000 delegates from across 29 countries, it was simultaneously organized in three top hotels in, then, Bombay. The conference organizational standard TENCON1989 has set can be gauged by noting that those were the non-internet snail mail days!

Inspired by this rich legacy, the Bombay Section has successfully bid to organize TENSYMP2022. The Section was grateful to IEEE Region 10 for trusting us to host another one of its flagship events. The Symposium was organized in hybrid mode from 1st to 3rd July 2022 at the iconic Victor Menezes Convention Centre (VMCC), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, India. . .
