REGION 10 DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE — MARCH 2019
Dear Region 10 Members,
Unbelievably, almost three months have passed since the beginning of 2019. In these first three months we’ve held a Region 10 Executive Committee Meeting in January (Singapore) and a Region 10 Annual General Meeting in March (Melbourne).
As you may already have seen on the Region 10 website, I’ve appointed 28 well-qualified members as constituting the 2019 R10 Executive Committee. At our Executive Committee Meeting in Singapore we agreed both to pursue last year’s activities and to plan additional ones for the current year.
These proposed activities were reported and discussed among Section and Council Chairs at the Region 10 Annual General Meeting this month in Melbourne. So, we are now looking forward to a range of stimulating IEEE events over the course of 2019.
This year we’ll be holding several major flagship conferences:
- TENSYMP in Kolkata in June,
- TENCON in Kochi (Kerala state, India) in October,
- HTC in Jakarta in November.
Industry Forums will be attached to these conferences as well as to other international gatherings slated elsewhere for our Region 10.
Choose one or more of the conferences now, verify the deadline, and submit your paper(s).
Whilst international events are useful for expanding our horizons, another good place to initiate IEEE activities is at the local level, whether Section, Chapter, (LM, WIE, and YP) Affinity Groups, or Student Branches, and so forth.
So, do watch for locally supported events and participate fully. I am convinced you’ll come away with a positive experience, and you will likely encounter an attractive range of leadership opportunities as well.
Let’s participate and enjoy our IEEE lives to the full!
With every good wish,
IEEE Region 10 Director
