We conducted the event in-person, where the number of participants was 49. From four universities, Hokkaido University, Kitami Institute of Technology, Muroran Institute of Technology, Hokkaido University of Science, and University of Hyogo, five students in total presented their activities and laboratory lives.
On Friday, September 22nd, we hosted the IEEE Student Branch Workshop at the conference room on the 11th floor of Hokkaido University.
This event was an independent initiative, originally part of the student presentation segment within the Hokkaido Young Professionals Workshop held annually by IEEE Sapporo YP. This year marked the inaugural attempt of such a format. In organizing this event, we received co-sponsorship not only from Hokkaido University SB and Sapporo YP but also from Kansai YP, Kansai University SB, and Muroran Institute of Technology SB. On the day, we had many participants attending both the SB Workshop in the first half and the YP Workshop in the latter half.
During the SB part, students conducted presentations on their research themes and participated in group work about the Student Branch. Students from Muroran Institute of Technology, Kansai University, and Hokkaido University presented their research, receiving questions and advice from the attendees and Professor Sato. In the group work, participants were divided into two groups to share information and opinions about each Student Branch.
In the YP part, awardees selected for the YP Award took the stage to deliver lectures on their respective research themes.
Being able to interact with students from geographically distant locations and listen to the lectures by distinguished YP researchers was a valuable experience that I believe will be beneficial in our future research activity.
The continuation of this event in the next year is yet to be determined, but we believe that having interactions across multiple Student Branches, as was done this time, is meaningful as an IEEE activity, and we hope to continue it.
Kunii and Ishizaki participated in IEEE SBLTW 2023 held at Kansai University from June 30 (Fri.) to July 1 (Sat.).
On the 30th, we had workshops on manga production and self-expression by Mr. Kasuga, a scriptwriter, and Mr. Ogawa, an editor, and advisor from DNP Co. In the group work, participants discussed how their research activities could be used in the future, and presented their ideas in their own formats. By discussing with students who study in different fields, we were able to obtain good knowledge and stimulation that is different from the usual.
On the first day, each participant exhibited a poster introducing his or her SB, and we exchanged information in the form of a poster session. Based on the exchange on the previous day, I feel that we were able to have a very meaningful exchange of information about research and activities of other branches.
This year, a workshop related to the Manga Story Contest, which is held annually by IEEE JC, was also held, making the two-day event a great opportunity to learn about technologies and knowledge in other fields.
Also, our branch celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. In honor of this, we received a commemorative plaque from IEEE on the second day.
The Internet Symposium organized by the IEICE Hokkaido Section Student Activity Committee co-organized by the IEEE Hokkaido University Student Branch will be held as follows. This symposium is an event for students, where research presentations and question-and-answer sessions are all held on the website. It would be greatly appreciated if you could use this symposium as a place to present and discuss your research results. We look forward to your participation.
On November 5, the following three branches co-organized a student networking event after the regular sessions of the 2022 Joint Convention, the Hokkaido Chapters of the Institutes of Electrical and Information Engineers.
IEICE Muroran Institute of Technology Student Branch
Similar to the last year’s student networking event, we conducted the event online, where the number of participants was 25. From five universities, Hokkaido University, Kitami Institute of Technology, Muroran Institute of Technology, Hokkaido University of Science, and Chitose Institute of Science and Technology, six students in total presented their activities and laboratory lives.
