2017 Joint Convention Record, the Hokkaido Chapters of the Institutes of Electrical and Information Engineers, Japan

A student exchange meeting of the planning session of IEEE Hokkaido University student branch was held at 2017 Joint Convention, the Hokkaido Chapters of the Institutes of Electrical and Information Engineers, in Future University Hakodate on Oct 28th-29th. A total of five people, the three universities, Hokkaido University, Future University Hakodate, Muroran Institute of Technology, presented the activity report of the academic society to which they belonged and the situation of regular research life.

Watanabe of Master’s 1st year reported the activity as IEEE Student Branch at Hokkaido University. 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.

It was a good experience as there are not many opportunities for students to plan sessions and deepen exchange between universities and fields.
