Further Program Details: ieee-onlinegreencomm.org
Attend all or any portions that will impact your knowledge and career.
Summary: OnlineGreenComm is dedicated to addressing the challenges in energy-efficient communications and communications for green technologies. It is held virtually, to emphasize the need for reducing global greenhouse gas emissions, avoiding the most polluting aspects of conferences — the use of mass transport systems for traveling. Common to all IEEE conferences, IEEE OnlineGreenComm features a full-fledged paper submission, review, and publication process that adheres to the high standards defined by IEEE.
IEEE OnlineGreenComm covers a wide spectrum of research subjects, including green methodologies and architectures for communication technologies, communication technologies as enablers for green solutions, energy efficiency in Smart Grid communications, and energy management.

2017 IEEE Rising Stars Conference đź—“

— where Students and Young Professionals Come to Connect and be Inspired …

Conference Dates: January 2-4, 2017
Location: Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.
Cost: $295 for Student Members, $349 for IEEE Members (through Nov. 25th)
RSVP: requested, through website
Event Details: sites.ieee.org/risingstars

As the premier IEEE student event, the Rising Stars conference brings together the most promising students and young professionals to network and be inspired by each other and the top tech companies from around the world. It will be taking place the first week in January 2017 at the Excalibur in Las Vegas, Nevada. This conference is in conjunction with the Consumer Electronics Showcase which occurs just after the conference.
“The Rising Stars Conference is a great opportunity for any young engineer. At this conference, I had a chance to network with a lot of great engineers, both present and future. Talking to all these great engineers allowed me the opportunity to work at Northrop Grumman for a summer internship. Due to that internship, I have a job offer before I even graduate! For any young engineer thinking of attending, I would give them a resounding ‘Do It!’. I can guarantee that you won’t regret it.” – Joe Fercho, 2015 Attendee
