A student exchange meeting of the joint planning session of IEICE Hokkaido University student branch (Chair: Mr. Miyajima) and IEEE Hokkaido University student branch at the Hokkaido branch association meeting was held at 2016 Joint Convention, the Hokkaido Chapters of the Institutes of Electrical and Information Engineers, in Hokkai-Gakuen University Yamahana Campus on Nov 5th-6th. A total of six people, the four universities, Hokkaido University, Hokkai-Gakuen University, Muroran Institute of Technology, Kitami Institute of Technology, presented the activity report of the academic society to which they belonged and the situation of regular research life.

Uesaka the Chair of IEEE Student Branch at Hokkaido University reported the activity. In the Q & A session, explanations were given on how to launch the new branch and benefits of launching it, and the recruitment of the members was done.

There were not many opportunities for students to plan and exchange sessions at ordinary academic meetings and it was a good experience. Also, I was able to deepen the exchange between universities and fields through questions and chat.
