What is the Student Forum?

The Industrial Electronics Society Student Forum (IES-SF) is a great opportunity for engineering students and recently graduated engineers to present their research work on Industrial Electronics and related areas. The IES-SF is an activity specially thought for young engineers and its aim is to get in touch with many international students and recently graduated from universities and enterprises.

What benefits do I get from the IES-SF?

     Reduced inscription fee (150$) for one day Student Forum

(for young engineers student and just graduated student only).

     Young Engineers’ Oral and Poster Sessions to present your research projects and results.

     Awards for the best paper and poster (award: 750$)!

     Special tutorials conducted by distinguished world-class young lecturers.

     Young engineers’ banquet.

     Friendly debates with young colleagues and companies about topics directly related to your professional future.

     Papers form IES-SF may be included in IEEExplore.

     An extraordinary IES-SF deadline: February 24th, 2014.  

May I join?

Students registered in engineering courses (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) and also recently graduated engineers (max two years since graduation) are strongly encouraged to join the IES-SF. There are two ways to participate in the IES-SF: 

a)     Presenting original results from their research works in the Young Engineers’ Oral Session.

b)     Presenting contents and goals of their research project in the Young Engineers Poster Session.

Topics are not limited but they will match with the scope of the ISIE. It is worth to point out that only students can be authors in papers submitted to the IES-SF. Professors are not allowed appearing as co-authors in the IES-SF papers but they are strongly encouraged to motivate students to participate in this enriching experience and supervise the quality of the submitted works.

Students participating in the IES-SF will enjoy the reduced inscription fee. Students’ activities will be concentrated in only one day for reducing the overall costs of attending the IES-SF. However, students are allowed to attend most of the activities of the ISIE.

Students with a regular registration for the ISIE will have a free registration for the IES-SF as well.

How can I participate in the IES-SF?

Authors should submit a copy of their full paper, in English, with 6 pages maximum, using automated web-based submission system and selecting Student Forum [SF] as technical track. Authors should specify in their submitted draft manuscript if they would like to participate either in the young engineers'oral session or in the young engineers' poster session. Please contact to the IES-SF general chairman (samir.kouro@usm.cl) for further information.

Did you talk about awards?

Yes!! An international group of reviewers will select both the best oral and the best poster presentations of the IES-SF based on the quality of the submitted paper, the clarity in the presentation and the interest aroused among the audience. Authors of these two works will receive an IEEE supporting diploma in recognition of quality of their contributions and a $750 award per work.

Am I still in time to join?

Yes!! The IES-SF deadline is February 24th, 2014 and notification of acceptance is expected on March 1, 2014.

We are looking forward to receiving your papers and meet you in Istanbul.
