Finalists Announced for First Women in Circuits and Systems Workshop

The IEEE UK and Ireland Circuits and Systems Chapter presents its first, Women in Circuits and Systems (WiCAS) Workshop. The scope of the workshop is to promote the excellent research done by women early career researchers in our Section and to foster opportunities for networking and collaboration.

Attendance is free and selected presenters will be awarded cash prizes to be decided based on the actual and potential impact the work presented and the quality of the presentations by a committee appointed by the Chair of the IEEE UK and Ireland Circuits and Systems Chapter, Professor Izzet Kale.

The final presentations have now been selected:
