It includes talks and discussions and aims at the exchange of ideas and experiences between the participants, the conclusion of collaborations, the appropriate training, and the supply of the members of the student branches for the organization of their local actions but also the information of the new engineers for the needs of the labor market. The congress will be organized for the sixth time online in November 2021, by the IEEE Greece Section.

The 6th HSYP will be held Virtually, on 20th and 21st November 2021!

Innovation for Health Competition is an event in which people with diverse perspectives such as clinicians, engineers, designers, software developers, business people, and patients come together in an intense, fun-filled, three-day weekend to develop and build solutions that could address challenges facing healthcare today. Participants will form teams, collaborate within a limited time frame, and focus on a specific problem or idea in healthcare to come up with innovative ideas and solutions. The organizing committee of the three-day event, “Innovation for Health”, intends to promote the innovative ideas of young people in the field of biomedical Technology. Specifically, the participants will be divided into groups and will be undertaken by a clinical need which they will be able to solve from the first day of the conference, Friday 12/11 at 9:00 am. until Sunday 14/11 at 12:00 p.m. Meanwhile, they will work with teachers, counselors, and mentors to find an innovative solution and create a business plan around it. The groups in general and each member individually will receive guidance and advice throughout the conference. At the end of the competition, the teams will present their solutions in 15 minutes, in English, to the competent committee. The teams will be evaluated based on the evaluation criteria that the judges have set and also the topics of the competitions are up to them. Not only the evaluation criteria but also the topics will be released the first day of the competition Friday 12/11. The teams that will be announced 1st and 2nd in the competition will win a cash prize to support their creative idea. The two winning teams (first and second) will win a cash prize in order to support them and their creative idea. At the same time, the two best teams will be chosen with their presentations recorded and will be sent to regional level to global evaluators, industry experts and IEEE Region 8 volunteers. Among all these team presentations, many amazing teams will be chosen by IEEE Region 8 for the next part of the competition, the guidance phase, where the teams will be guided to the search for funds and successful purchase. The guidance phase will be held at the beginning of the new year and the finals will be carried out in a high-level international IEEE event, such as the IEEE Region 8 Student and Young Professionals congress or the Rising Stars congress and possibly apart from IEEE the Web Summit or Wolves Summit. Finally, we intend to emphasize the most important chance that IEEE is giving to start-ups: to be a global network of technology experts now complemented by the perception of available business experts.

Webinar: Εισαγωγή στο XeLaTeX

To IEEE NTUA Computer Society μαζί με τον Οργανισμό Ανοιχτών Τεχνολογιών(ΕΕΛΛΑΚ) και τους IEEE Young Professionals και ΙΕΕΕ Greece Section διοργανώνουν το webinar με τίτλο: «Εισαγωγή στο XeLaTeX »

Το webinar θα έχει ομιλητή τον Δρ. Απόστολο Συρόπουλο και θα έχει ως στόχο την ανασκόπηση του XeLaTeX, ενός πολύ ισχυρού συστήματος προχωρημένης στοιχειοθέτησης και παραγωγής τεχνικών και επιστημονικών κειμένων.

Θα παρουσιαστούν όλες οι σχετικές τεχνολογίες έτσι ώστε ο συμμετέχων να είναι σε θέση να εκτιμήσει την αξία του κάθε εργαλείου και της κάθε λύσης και θα γίνει επίδειξη του τρόπου χρήσης του ΧeLaΤeX για τη συγγραφή επιστημονικών εργασιών.

Το webinar χωρίζεται σε 2 παρουσιάσεις:
Day 1 – Σάββατο 17/4 ώρα 18:30
Γενική παρουσίαση του XeLaTeX. Ανασκόπηση των σχετικών τεχνολογιών και ανάδειξη των κατάλληλων editors. Διαφορές στη χρήση ανάλογα το λειτουργικό (windows/unix).

Day 2 – Παρασκευή 23/4 ώρα 18:30
Επίδειξη τρόπου χειρισμού του XeLaTeX, παρουσίαση βασικών εντολών και τρόπου γραφής επιστημονικών εργασιών.

Δήλωση ενδιαφέροντος: ΕΔΩ.
Το webinar θα πραγματοποιηθεί μέσω Webex και θα σταλεί link συμμετοχής πριν την έναρξη των παρουσιάσεων.
