IEEE IAS Annual Meeting: from the viewpoint of the BUTE SBC
The 50th Annual Meeting was held in Dallas, Texas between October 18th and October 22nd, 2015. 4 of the BUTE SBC members won the Annual Meeting Travel Award Grand Prize. In addition David Balango came in 5th in the master thesis contest with his dynamic line rating work and Peter Kallo won a Zucker Design Award with his “beercollector” building project.
On the first day of the conference the members introduced the large scale technical activity of the BUTE SBC in a short presentation to the audience. There were also some very important information about the opportunities in the Industry Applications Society during the full-day workshop which can help our organization to achieve purposes. The Chapter won the Continuously Outstanding Student Branch Chapter Award which is a very good indication that we are doing this right. It is a high praise for us, and we are very proud of that.
In the student sessions, the members presented their work in both the poster and technical sessions. Peter Kallo also got a third prize in the Best Paper Contest. The title of the presentation was „How to build a beercollector?”
Later the members attended a lot of technical sessions and tutorials to develop technical knowledge. There were lots of interesting topics where the SBC representatives learned so much.
