IEEE Smart Tech Metro Area Workshops provide participants with a unique learning experience with topics on the cutting-edge of technical innovation today.
These two-day seminars are focused on providing an opportunity for participants to learn first-hand from the field experts. Each workshop is a springboard to a deeper understanding of technology and its myriad applications and potential for innovation.
IEEE Smart Tech is coming to four US cities in 2013:
Each workshop's content is put together based on the emerging technologies that are in demand in your local area. The Metro Area Workshop series is designed for practicing engineers and technical professionals who are innovators, have a desire to learn more, are in a career transition, or considering a career change. Also, students in these technology areas will benefit greatly not only from the expert knowledge gained, but from the networking opportunities, as they are making their career choices.
Immerse yourself in a full-day course on the most impactful technology areas today. The daily tracks for each workshop are designed to make the day as productive and comfortable as possible. You may choose from one workshop per day.
Some of the technologies featured in the all-day tracks include:
Each day begins with a continental breakfast, moves through an introduction and course instruction, including breaks and lunch. Two more course sessions, separated by a break, culminate at the end of the day for a discussion session.
On Friday evening, join the keynote address at a reception with light food and a cash bar.
Course content is provided by IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Power & Energy Society, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE-USA.
