As part of the Information Theory Chapter's mission to be the professional home for UK Engineers and Scientists working in Information Theory and applications, it has introduced a series of annual thesis awards ranging from undergraduate to postgraduate. The winner of each category receives a £200 award and a certificate. The annual awards have been recently announced.
The YP Postgraduate STEM Research Symposium was a single day event that gave the opportunity to early STEM researchers, especially PGRs (PhD and MPhil), to present their research, receive feedback and explore the possibilities of turning research to enterprise. The symposium was open to professionals and students and accepted submissions of posters, papers and research to enterprise pitches.
The Signal Processing Society recently approved an initiative that would provide limited Society support for SPS Chapters to send up to two members each to the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) in Taipei, Taiwan from 22-25 September 2019.
Sinead O'Keefe of the University of Limerick organised the Women in Engineering Program held in conjunction with the IEEE 5th World Forum on Internet of Things.
