Day 1 – Cruise, IEEE Nordic Students and Young Professionals Congress 2019
October 25 @ 15:00 - 23:30
Welcome to the Congress!
You are warmly welcomed to the 3rd IEEE Nordic Student and Young Professionals Congress. We hope that you will enjoy your weekend, learn interesting new things and make new friends!
The weekend will feature 3 days of talks and activities spread out across 2 countries and a sea, 2 time zones, and 3 congress locations. We have a mammoth twenty speakers lined up to educate and inform on different sustainability themes.
Day 1 – Cruise
Day one and welcome to the Nordic SYP 2019! Today we will register everybody and distribute our very stylish congress hoodies, and have some introductory talks and lectures. We will also set sail for Finland!
15:00 – 16:00 Check in/Registration
We will check everybody in and dispense the Nordic SYP hoodies. It is important that we have everybody on board the ship by 16:15 at the latest. We will distribute the tickets and help attendees find their cabins. There will then be a small amount of downtime before NSYP19 kicks off on deck 6.
17:30 – 17:50 Welcome to the Nordic SYP
The hosts will welcome attendees to the Nordic SYP. We will explain why we decided to host the SYP, what convinced us to join forces and co-host the event, why sustainability and why the event means so much to us.
17:50 – 18:00 Sweden Section chairs welcome
We would not be able to host the Nordic SYP without the support and help of our two wonderful section chairs. This will be a brief welcome to attendees from one of the guys who made this happen.
18:00 – 18:10 Student Activities Committee introduction
The next welcome of the day comes from another of the entities to whom NSYP19 is indebted. SAC has been an enormous help throughout the entire planning process and we would not be having a SYP without them. This talk will be given by IEEE Region 8 Vice-Chair and R8 SAC Chair Maciej Borówka.
18:10 – 18:40 Student Activities Committee talk
This will be a talk given by Maciej and another member of SAC. The topic will be based around how we can attract new members to join IEEE student branches, and how to keep them active and interested in the branch.
18:50 – 19:00 Young Professionals introduction
The final group that has been an ever present and guiding hand throughout the organization of NSYP19 is the Young Professionals. Again, we have been lucky to have incredibly talented, dedicated and driven representatives from YP helping us with all our meetings and always available for help and advice.
The YP talks will be given by YP Chair, international, Flavia Dinca; past chair of YP international Rafal Sliz; and past chair of YP R8 and one of the amazing people who have gone above and beyond to ensure the success of this SYP, Sara Barros.
19:00 – 19:30 Pub Quiz – IEEE Style!
The YP team gives an activity with a twist!
19:30 – 20:30 Dinner
The first of our grand buffets onboard the Symphony. After dinner attendees will be free to roam the boat, relax in the sauna/jacuzzi, or explore the nighttime activities available onboard the ship.
