2021 IEEE Region 10 Symposium, TENSYMP is a flagship technical conference of IEEE Region 10. It dates back to 2013. Since then, TENSYMP has grown into a premier IEEE conference. TENSYMP was hosted by IEEE Seoul Section for the first time and held in Korea for the first time. With the world suffering from the coronavirus for nearly two years, engineers, scientists, and researchers have no doubt been facing difficulty researching and communicating with colleagues.

For the researchers in the coronavirus pandemic, TENSYMP 2021 was conducted in a hybrid form with the theme of ‘Good Technologies for Creating Future’, allowing the speakers and participants to join TENSYMP 2021 and share ideas on the technologies to overcome the present difficulties and create a prosperous future, with the comfort from their countries.
