Achievements of Russia Siberia Section
One of the accomplishments of our Section was the Siberian Conference on
Control and Communications (SIBCON). This successful event has been a
motive for similar activities and further achievments.
Establishment of Chapters
Among other recent event we can mention the formation of new chapters in
Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg. Although these chapters have only recently
been established, they have proven quite active.
Our Joint Chapters has held some scientific sessions last years. It is to
be mentioned that although the Control Society Chapter has not been
established yet, the branch has also held a scientific session related to
control engineering by and we hope our activities result in the formation of
Control and Computer Engineering Chapter.
Student Paper Contest
Our Students in Tomsk Student Branches have been quite active on this
contest as you may know the Regional Student Paper Contest is one of
the most important activities in Region 8. By participating in this
contest, students can improve both written and oral communication
skills, interest with local section representatives, have a chance
to present their work in front of experts and many other benefits.
These advantages result in a high interest among students in
One of the main goals of our branches in the past was increase in
number of student members. Approaching to these goals was not easy but with
advertisement on the many benefits of IEEE membership the number of student
members increased heavily.
