SS-CITA was organized by the REGIM-Lab. (Research Groups in Intelligent Machines, University of Sfax), Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and the Association of Sustainable Innovation in Tunisia and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Region 8 and Tunisian chapters of IEEE WIE,CI, SMC, and IA Societies.
The program of the school included theoretical and practical talks during four days from 11 till 14 August 2014. The main goal of SS-CITA is to provide undergraduate students, M.Sc. or PhD students, academics, and engineers from industry with hands-on knowledge on sophisticated Computational Intelligence (CI) algorithms and methods. It gives the opportunity to discover the most recent advances in CI research as well as substantial examples of successful CI applications to solve complex real-world problems. The school included theoretical and practical sessions. The choice of such topic is based on the growing attention paid towards intelligent systems.

TuniRobots is one of the biggest Tunisian events in the robotics field. It is organized every year by INSAT in Tunis-Tunisia. It designs many tracks and challenges for the exhibitors. In its fourth edition, held on April 20, 2014, the attendance of women was very remarkable. About a hundred of female engineers assisted to the show and participated in some tracks. IEEE WIE Tunisia AG members were present to have an idea about the inventions and innovations of students.

WIMTA is a national Workshop organized by REGIM-Lab and supported by IEEE where more than 70 PhD students and doctors meet together to exchange research results and present technical innovation on all aspects of machine intelligence and linked data.
The workshop’s main features are plenary talks, practical sessions, PhD student presentations (oral and poster) and exhibition of developed applications.
22nd edition WIMTA’22
In its first 2014 edition, WIMTA was organized by the IEEE members within the REGIM-Lab in partnership with the IEEE WIE Affinity Group, on March 20-23, 2014 in Sousse – Tunisia.
An IEEE WIE Workshop was presented by Eng. Boudour Ammar: chair of WIE Tunisia AG. In this workshop Women in Engineering Affinity Group benefits were discussed. Participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas in interactive discussion groups and to focus on new projects regarding WIE interest areas.
23rd edition WIMTA’23
In its second 2014 edition, WIMTA was organized in Elksar hotel, Sousse-Tunisia. An IEEE WIE Workshop was presented by Nouha Ghribi, Women in Engineering Committee Member. She discussed the new trends in Google tools. Participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas in interactive discussion groups.

Speaker: Meliha B. Selak, P-Eng (a Specialist Engineer in Electrical Power Systems with BC Hydro Utility)

Date: Sunday, March 23, 2014

Place: Elksar hotel, Sousse-Tunisia

Eng. Meliha presented her experience as a female engineer and explained how the profession is suited to woman’s life. She gave a good example of the way to construct somebody’s career. Her talk generated enthusiasm for young female engineers especially those who want to boost their professional life. Tens of IEEE men and women members assisted to the conference.

A meeting with WIE Tunisia AG Chair and Vice-Chair took place after the end of the talk.

The Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) provides a forum for IEEE volunteers to demonstrate the application of engineering, science and mathematics concepts by sharing their real-world experiences with local pre-university educators.


The call of the workshop Teacher In-Service Program (TISP)

TISP was organized by the IEEE RAS TN members in partnership with the IEEE WIE Affinity Group, on March 20, 2014 from 3pm to 6pm in Sousse – Tunisia.

The program’s goals are to:

• empower section volunteers to collaborate with their local pre-university community;

• promote applied inquiry-based learning;

• enhance the level of technical literacy of pre-university educators;

• encourage pre-university students to pursue technical careers, including engineering;

• increase the general level of technical literacy of pre-university students throughout their educational careers.

Through TISP, IEEE volunteers help support engineering education and the development of future engineering students.

The purpose of this workshop is to help IEEE members and pre-university school educators improve the teaching of engineering and engineering design in pre-university schools (primary schools, middle schools and high schools).

Teaching material is generated from Try Engineering website (, which is a resource for students (ages 8-18), their parents, their teachers and their school counselors about engineering and engineering careers.

The selected lesson plan for this workshop is the Rescue Rover lesson.

The expectation is that IEEE members who complete the workshop will contact local schools in the future, and work with their teachers on engineering lesson plans; and educators will work with their students to present engineering concepts.
