IEEE Region 8 Committee Meeting – March 2017


Last March, the Portuguese IEEE section was represented at the 108th IEEE Region 8 Committee Meeting in Stockholm by the chair Ana Madureira and the vice-chair Catarina Silva, which they though was very well organized and had a really good atmosphere.


In the first day, it was possible to attend to the valuable Region 8 New Volunteers Orientation Session, and also to the very interesting technical presentation “Nobel, History and Present” by Tobias Degsell. In the following two days, the agenda was very occupied with the presentation of the current status of a large range of officers, including Educational Activities, Membership Development and Action for Industry. In the last day, the representatives had the opportunity to attend to the President-Elect Candidates’ Debate, which they found very insightful.


IEEE Region 8 presented a token of appreciation to Portugal Section, chaired by Ana Madureira, for exemplary service in hosting the 107th IEEE Region 8 Committee Meeting in Porto.
