IEEE ComSoc Young Professional & Women in Communications Engineering Luncheon

Date: Wednesday, 24 May 2017
Time: 12:30pm - 14:00pm 
 
The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) Young Professionals (YPs) and Women in Communications Engineering (WICE) Standing Committees are organizing this luncheon event to provide a platform for YPs and Women to be recognized for their ideas and to understand how to be successful in their careers.
 
To this aim, there will be an interactive and exciting session with a panel of leading telecommunication experts to help unravel “Hot topics in communications” and provide insights on how YPs and women can achieve a successful career in academia, industry or in a start-up company.
 
You will also be inspired by the award ceremony honoring the recipients of the IEEE ComSoc YPs and WICE Best Paper and the IEEE ComSoc YPs and WICE Best Innovation awards. To get our creative juice flowing, an abstract presentation in both academia and industry areas will also be featured at this event. In particular, the selected presenters will have a private meeting with ComSoc Experts to interact and discuss about their concerns on research/career developments and receive valuable feedbacks
 
We look forward to seeing you there!
