Concurso de papers da região 8 do IEEE 2012

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN IEEE REGION 8 STUDENT PAPER CONTEST 2012
IEEE Region 8 Student Branches are invited to participate in IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest 2012 !
The deadline to send full papers for the IEEE R8 SPC 2012 is 15 December 2011.

MAIN GOALS OF SPC ACTIVITIES

IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest (SPC) is a traditional, over twenty years existing academic, technical and student activity in Region 8. SPC was and is an important IEEE topic in many aspects, just to mention some of them: (a) SPC is an excellent occasion for personal leadership and strong involvement of student members in a prospective IEEE scientific/technical activity; (b) SPC is a very good reason and chance for activating and keeping active Student Branches; (c) it makes possible further promotion of IEEE among students; (d) it is a nice possibility for IEEE members with non-student grades – the local and regional SPC Committee (Jury) members, their colleagues (associate reviewers), Student Branch Counselors, professors – student mentors and many others to be involved and to participate in such an interesting IEEE student activity.

GENERAL

Once each year, each IEEE R8 Student Branch (SB) may hold and organize a local Student Paper Contest under its own responsibility. The organization of a local SPC generally means that contest should be announced publicly in advance and that all submitted papers are to be locally reviewed by qualified specialists. Additionally, all Region 8/Sections/Chapters supported and/or co-organized IEEE Conferences,  having student papers sessions included in their programs, could and should also be used to get additional proposals for SPC. As long as a SB is formally supporting and accepting any type of a student papers contest activity, it is in line with the existing SPC rules. Student Branch Counselors should be fully involved in all local SPC activities, as well as all other local IEEE officers (section chairs, chapter chairs, student activities officers, members of executive committees, …). The winner(s) of each Student Branch Contest may compete for the Region 8 Contest, held within the Region 8 limits. A Student Branch may submit one paper per every 100 Student Branch members or part thereof, with a maximum of three papers per SB.

WHO COULD PARTICIPATE ?

IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest is for IEEE R8 student members or graduate student members who have not yet started their PhD, Only IEEE R8 student members could be authors of the IEEE R8 SPC papers. Professors-mentors and other associates can not be SPC authors (but their names could be acknowledged in the FINAL versions of the papers).  Each student author must be a member of an IEEE Student Branch at the time of the original submission of the paper to the Branch Contest, and a member (student or not) of the IEEE at the time of the R8 Oral Finals presentation.
The work presented has to be completed before the student receives the engineering degree that entitles him/her to start preparing a doctoral thesis. The submission of the paper to the Region 8 SPC must be completed within 12 months after graduation. A doctoral thesis is not considered.

CHARACTER OF THE PAPER

Papers should cover technical and engineering aspects of a subject reasonably within or related to the areas with which the IEEE is concerned with.
The work need not be original in engineering content, but should be original in treatment and concise in coverage of the author’s contribution to the subject.

DEADLINE AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The deadline to send full papers to IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest 2012 is 15 December 2011. Send papers by email to g.paunovic@ieee.org . Papers submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

JURY, FINALISTS, ORAL FINALS AND PRIZES

An international jury will grade the written papers sent by Student Branches to the Regional contest without knowledge of the identity of the authors and of their school, and will decide which papers will be accepted for presentation at the Regional Oral Finals. All finalists will be invited and financially supported to present their papers at IEEE MELECON 2012 Conference, 25-28 March 2012, Yasmine Hammamet, Tunisia. The papers will be published in MELECON 2012 Conference Proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore Database. Three best finalists will get prizes from the IEEE Life Member Fund.

IEEE Iberian Student Branch Congress Madrid

Os elementos do Student Branch de Castelo Branco participaram nos dias 11, 12 e 13 de Março de 2011 no “IEEE Iberian Student Branch Congress” realizado em Madrid, este congresso foi baseado no anterior “ IEEE Iberian Student Branch Congress hosted by Technical University of Lisbon” realizado no  Campus Taguspark em Lisboa.

Teve lugar na Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, mais propriamente na E.T.S.I. de Telecomunicacion, onde tiveram lugar vários workshops. Estes tiveram como base os seguintes temas:

  • Organização de Empresas;
  • Windows 7;
  • Mirochips (Cartão do Cidadão);
  • Como realizar um projecto?

Conhecemos a Universidade em pormenor, visitando alguns laboratórios, a casa do Futuro, a casa tecnológica, a câmara anecóica, e o centro de investigação de microelectrónica, também foram mostradas aplicações em Android.

Para além disso foi feita uma visita à cidade de Madrid onde tivemos a oportunidade de explorar uma cidade “enorme”.

Com tudo isto conhecemos os vários StudentBranches de Portugal e Espanha presentes naquele evento, e também representantes de um Student Branch de Cracóvia (Polónia), e através do convívio partilhamos ideias, conhecemos novas culturas, e foram-nos propostos novos desafios.

SBC 2010 Leuven

No passado dia 4 de Agosto de 2010, os alunos da ESTCB José Filipe Costa e Ivo Raposo, participaram no evento SBC 2010 Leuven realizado na Bélgica (Leuven), que decorreu entre o dia 4 e 8 de Agosto. Estes alunos fazem parte do ramo estudantil do IEEE em Portugal, mais precisamente do Student Branch de Castelo Branco.

Ambos gostaram da experiência, da convivência e da troca de ideias com colegas de nacionalidades diferentes, citando Filipe Costa “Uma experiência única e inesquecível, de onde se ganham novos amigos e novas ideias”. Já Ivo por sua vez diz “Amigos novos, experiências novas, semana única”.

Este alunos de Engenharia Electrotécnica e das Telecomunicações participaram nos workshops e nas palestras, visitaram locais novos, bem como uma viagem guiada ao local onde é fabricada uma conhecida marca Belga, a Stella Atrois. Ambos os alunos ficaram maravilhados e muito felizes por esta experiência e tudo devido a serem e fazerem parte integrante do IEEE.
