This year, the IEEE-IST Student Branch will be 25. They will celebrate with technical talks, panels, workshops, presentations on IEEE, social and networking events, and a ceremony. They will showcase their current projects, bring back recent members who left their mark on the branch, hear other personalities share their IEEE stories, cheer on as faculty are promoted to IEEE senior member and student members move on to the next stage of their membership and learn about the multiple opportunities within IEEE.
Speakers will be IST alumni, current students, and other IEEE personalities, such as Efthymia Arvaniti (BrainArK), Rui Costa (Veniam), David Dias (^lift, &yet, IST), Diogo Mónica (Square, IST), José M. F. Moura (CMU), Hugo Silva (PLUX, IST), José Pedro Silva (Critical Manufactoring), and Manuela Veloso (CMU). Their talks will range from autonomous robots to vehicular networks, touching on big data, biosignals, neuroengineering, or startup life, as well as the workings of IEEE.
Date: March 6 to 8, 2015.
Place: Taguspark campus (March 6, included in SET – Semana Empresarial e Tecnológica) and Alameda campus (Abreu Faro Auditorium, March 7 and 8).
