BUTE SBC: IEEE Region 8 Student & Young Professional Congress, Krakow


Two members of our SBC have participated in IEEE R8 Student & Young Professionals Congress Krakow 2014. The event was held mainly at AGH University’s campus Krakow and many other lovely external venues for the opening and social events. We had plenary sessions by various speakers from IEEE, the local officers and supporting companies.

After the plenary sessions we went to technical sessions and workshops. In order to acquire broader knowledge and materials both of us tried to join diverse events. We got to know more and more facts and information about general IEEE’s activities (especially in the region 8) and more specialized initiatives and member driven activities such as the Student & Young Professionals.

5A plenary session

At technical sessions we had speakers from the sponsor companies that we also visited at their facilities later on. The workshops seemed to be very useful e.g. how to write publication papers and present them, activities for pre-university students and so on.

The main goal of the congress was to get to know each other, which has been fully achieved. We got to know many colleagues from foreign SBC’s and we tried to establish long lasting relations that could provide both of us great benefits.
