2.   Posters by K-12 students

3.   Workshops

Your work must not have been published or submitted for publications elsewhere.

Suggested Topics for Papers towards STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics):

•    Integration of Education and Interdisciplinary Education in STEM

•    Development and Implementation of policies to support Integrated STEM

•    Engineering Activities in STEM

•    Pre-College Initiatives and Outreach Program

•    Diversity and Inclusion in STEM/STEAM from P-12 to higher Education

•    Fundamental and Applied Research in Integrated STEM

All submissions are submitted via For full and work-in-progress papers, post the pdf or word document (no LaTEX) along with the author and abstract information. For posters and workshops, no separate document is needed; the information requested by EDAS, including the abstract, is sufficient. The paper submission could be one or both of the following:

•    Work In Progress (WIP): 2 – 4 pages (Preliminary or Initial stage of Research/Investigation)

•    Full Paper:            5 – 8 pages

There is no preliminary abstract phase for WIP or full papers. For page limits and conference submission template structure, please follow the template for Full and WIP papers posted in the conference website ( Papers that do not follow the template will be returned for reformatting.

Posters by K-12 students may feature student STEM/STEaM research or experiences. Submit an abstract describing the content of your poster (max 500 words) for review to EDAS. Please follow the template for K-12 Poster posted in the conference website (

Workshop proposals should provide the title, topic, focus, proposed activities, and a short statement of presenter expertise in an abstract of no more than 750 words. There are no papers associated with a workshop. Workshops are typically scheduled for 90 minutes.

All accepted submissions will be scheduled for presentation at the conference and included in the conference proceedings. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore. Workshop documents will not be submitted to Xplore.

Exhibits: Potential Exhibitors are requested to send mail to<> if interested in participating as an exhibitor. ISEC supported exhibits every year and virtual exhibits would also be explored for the event in 2024.

ISEC 2024 is sponsored by the IEEE Princeton/Central Jersey Section with technical co-sponsorship by IEEE Baltimore Section, IEEE Regions 1 and 2, and the IEEE Education Society.

Our Vice Chair of the Section, Nagi Naganathan, visited his home town in India in July 2018.

Nagi later spoke at his college about engineering and the IEEE.  Here is a photo from his visit there.

Congratulations to the Section for receiving this plaque from IEEE  for our section’s participation in the EPICS program in rural India to provide Digital Literacy.  Congratulations especially to the High School students of Bridgewater Raritan High School for implementing this project.

Below is the a photo of the plaque and a “Thank you” from team leader Ashutosh Dutta.

EPICS Plaque 2013

Dear All,             On Dec 18, 2014, I received the following certificate from IEEE towards IEEE Princeton/Central Jersey Section’s role in implementing EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service) in IEEE. This project was implemented with the leadership from Bridgewater Raritan High School iSTEM club members while IEEE PCJS provided the required assistance as needed.   I would like to thank IEEE PCJS immediate past chair Dr. Rebecca Mercuri, current chair Mr. Habib Ahson, current Excom members, Mr. David Soll, Mr. Fran OConnell, Dr. Nagi Naganathan, and Prof. Susan Donohue, Dr. Vigensh Subbian and Dr. Al Katz for their encouragement and support towards this activity in general.   Last but not the least, I am very happy to note the efforts from BRHS iSTEM club members and their advisers in carrying out this project. I am sure this will act as a model for other schools to follow to implement similar EPICS projects in different parts of the world.   We can plan to put this certificate during one of our section events and can take a group picture.   Regards Ashutosh Dutta, Ph.D. Vice Chair IEEE Education Society Chapter of PCJS Past Chair PCJS
