COVID-19 cancelled any possibility of an in-person conference, but IEEE Fort Worth Section still wanted to provide an opportunity to hold the Student Poster Competition. Please join us as students from our section showcase their research projects primarily related to conference tracks. Broken up into undergraduate and graduate categories, each team/participant will have 20 minutes to present, followed by a Q&A/Judging Session lasting 10 minutes. Prizes for each category are as followed:
2nd Place: $500
3rd Place: $250
This is the second in a series of sessions associated with our IEEE Fort Worth Section MetroCon conference.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic IEEE MetroCon 2020 has been cancelled. Plans are under way for MetroCon 2021, November 3, 2021, Hurst Conference Center. We hope to see you there.
This is a professional development session.

Fort Worth IEEE PES members, we will have our next IEEE PES virtual meeting on October 20 from 11:30am to 1:00pm. We have Javier Ruiz and Charles Nybeck from Megger presenting on improving reliability and life expectancy of power cables using a condition-based maintenance strategy, so please attend if you can!
In networking, IP as we call it is generally Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the replacement for IP running in today’s networks. 21 years after the initial release of IPv6 we observe that most networks are not formally implementing IPv6, however, most modern desktop/server OS’s have had IPv6 enabled for 8+ years. That means many IT departments and technologists don’t understand that IPv6 is in fact all over their networks nor what the potential implications are.
This session will cover a few IPv6 basics and then dive into a real-world demonstration accessing a live network and the recon/exploit of an “IPv4 only” network using IPv6.
