IEEE Region 8 Student & Young Professional Congress 2016

The IEEE R8 Student and Young Professional Congress (SYP Congress) is an event that takes place every two years in the IEEE Region 8. It gathers both student and young professional members from all Sections in the Region and it provides an opportunity to network and get to know over four hundred people from all over the world.

The 2016 version of the Congress will be hosted by the IEEE Student Branches Regensburg and Passau in Regensburg, Germany from the 17th till the 21st of August. The participants will have the opportunity to develop their technical and soft skills in a wide variety of workshops and lectures from local companies and global players and they deal with interesting topics in diverse technical fields, meet other IEEE members, exchange ideas and experiences. At the same time, we will introduce the participants to OTH Regensburg, the city of Regensburg, companies and laboratories in and around our city and the bavarian way of life.

Over four hundred students and young professionals from Africa, Europe and Middle East will create an incredible atmosphere – guaranteed! So take part, make new friends or meet old ones, learn about everything IEEE, network with high-tech companies and exchange ideas with like-minded people from all over Region 8.

IAS InterSociety Distinguished Lecturer Program

The IAS InterSociety Distinguished Lecturer (DL) Program is administered through the Chapters & Membership Department and provides IAS Chapters access to distinguished lecturers from the Industrial Electronics Society (IES), Power Electronics Society (PELS) and the Power Engineering Society (PES).

The program was started in 2000 through an inter-society cooperation agreement between IAS, IES, PELS & PES. Further regulations were made in 2008 which remained unchanged in the 2011 and 2014 agreements.

IAS Chapters benefit by having access to a larger selection of distinguished lecturers from societies with similar technical interests.

Information on the IES/PELS/PES DL programs including a listing of DL’s and topics can be found at:

PELS Distinguished Lecturer Program

How It Works

Each Society has agreed to fund its own DLs in accordance with their own funding rules and eligibility. IAS Chapters should contact the appropriate DL Program Chair when utilizing this program.
