On November 7, the following four branches co-sponsored a student networking event after the regular sessions of the 2020 Joint Convention, the Hokkaido Chapters of the Institutes of Electrical and Information Engineers.
- IEEE Hokkaido University Student Branch
- IEEE Muroran Institute of Technology Student Branch
- IEICE Hokkaido University Student Branch
- IEICE Muroran Institute of Technology Student Branch
It was the first time to hold it online, and there were as many as 50 participants. A total of 6 people from 4 universities, Hokkaido University, Kitami Institute of Technology, Muroran Institute of Technology, and Hokkaido University of Science presented their activities and laboratory lives.
Chair Kawabata moderated, and Treasurer Yasugi gave a presentation, introducing the activities of IEEE and IEEE SB, and explaining the conditions and methods for establishing SB. We also asked the presenters to make 1-2 questions (quizzes) and asked the participants to answer them using the Google Form. Quizzes were interesting and some of them were news to most attendees. We believe that the participants enjoyed these quiz sessions. The top 10 people who answered the quiz correctly were presented with a mug with the IEEE Sapporo Section logo as a novelty. Through presentations and quizzes, I was able to learn about the research lives of students from other universities and laboratories, which was a good experience.
