IES Student Branch Chapter Award

Date: 2017.07.07: We would like to kindly inform of a new Best Student Branch Chapter award which IES has setup in the form of a travel grant for student branch chapters. The award recognizes the activities of the IES Student Branch Chapter (IES SBC). The award facilitates the winning IES SBC to nominate one or more active student(s) to receive a travel grant for participating in one of the major conferences of the Industrial Electronics Society (IES): The IEEE International Symposium on Industrial Electronics (ISIE) or The IEEE Industrial Electronics Conference (IECON). Both conferences are held annually and the latter is the society’s flagship conference.

The award is offered to an IES SBC which was very active in IES during a particular year. The respective winning IES SBC will then nominate a student (or a group of students) to benefit from the travel grant associated with the award. The candidate(s) is expected to have demonstrated successful performance in the IES SBC.

Please see attached the information – memorandum explaining the award and a nomination form. The nomination forms for IES SBC Award awards will be accepted this year exceptionally until the 31st of July 2017.
