IEEE Educational Activities is developing the Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) program in IEEE. EPICS, which was conceived and championed by IEEE 2007 President Leah Jamieson, is a program that organizes university and high-school students to work on engineering-related projects for local humanitarian organizations
The IEEE EPICS Around the Globe Virtual Conference is a one day event that will be held on Saturday 27 October 2012 opening its virtual doors at 8:45 AM EST and runs until 5:00 PM. This conference will showcase the global reach of the EPICS in IEEE program and also provide a unique opportunity to see a new virtual platform in motion.
The IEEE EPICS Around the Globe Virtual Conference features knowledgeable speakers who are the cornerstones of the program from Purdue University and IEEE alongside IEEE student branches who have successfully developed and executed an EPICS project.
The speakers include:
Welcome: Dr. Michael Lightner, IEEE Educational Activities VP
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Moshe Kam, IEEE Past President
Plenary Session: Dr. William Oakes, Director of EPICS, Purdue University
The conference features two tracks to allow registrants to participate in sessions based on their own experience and interest level (Beginner and Advanced), a trade show floor with booths from conference sponsors, IEEE entities, and Student Branches who have completed EPICS in IEEE projects, and meeting room space for opportunities to converse with fellow attendees.
