Activity highlights from this year's award recipients and nominees

The IEEE Bangalore Section (R10) focused on elevation of members to Senior Member grade for purposes of membership development. The IEEE Bangalore Section now has more than 400 Senior Members. The Section was able to elevate 188 members to Senior Member grade; more than 74% rise in a single calendar year. The IEEE Bangalore Section had numerous activities for IEEE Day (1 October 2013), including Cybertron - an IEEE R10 level online treasure hunt. The event was based on the e-quiz pattern and was funded together by the IEEE Bangalore Section and IEEE Region 10 Electronics Communications & Information Management (ECIM) Team. The event had 269 participants from various sections of India, Pakistan, Japan, and other Region 10 countries.

The IEEE Croatia Section (R8) promotes IEEE membership at meetings, workshops, and conferences; at universities; in companies/industry; and by using personal contacts. The Section is encouraging members to renew on time (resulting in very good retention percentages); attracting members by organizing technical and social activities; welcoming new members; organizing successful “Join IEEE” activities at the local university; producing promotional items and giveaways locally; and encouraging members to upgrade their membership.

The IEEE Panama Section (R9) organized 21 different technical activities during 2013, distributed within all of the Section’s Chapters. The Section made a large effort to read all the surveys submitted after each activity to make sure they were delivering to members on topics of their interest. With this in mind, the Section was also able to achieve the goal of having 25% of activity participants be IEEE members.

The IEEE Egypt Section (R8) participates in many community service projects, including Egyptian Engineering Day, the "Made in Egypt" competition which address community services projects that link industry to academia, and the "Future City" program which engages teachers, school students, and school principals with small and introductory engineering projects. Additionally, the youth development program organized by the local university Student Branch aims to help Egyptian youth choose the right career, begin setting their goals in life, gain new ethics and values, and achieve balance in their lives.

The IEEE Kerala Section (R10) organizes major events annually for the benefit of Student Members, including a meeting of all Student Branch officers for training on Student Branch operations and Section guidelines; a Women in Engineering (WIE) Forum for women Student Members with specialized workshops, and a technical competition and project exhibition competition. The Student Branch Counselors Congress for industry interaction was held in three different geographic locations of the state to gain wider participation and the All Kerala Student Congress meeting for all Student Branch members had specialized training in five different tracks, including communications, robotics, computing, Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI), and electrical engineering. Along with these events, 250+ Student Branch activities and workshops on major educational tools were reported in individual Student Branches for the benefit of IEEE Student Members.

The IEEE Morelos Section (R9) conducts two technical events annually. The International Conference on Innovation and Technology Development (CIINDET) is a format where national and international companies have a leading space to present and discuss recent advances in their fields of expertise. This data format includes roundtables, forums and meetings, panels, and the presentation of technical papers. Industry professionals, experts, business leaders, researchers, and academics from different areas of engineering can all interact and exchange experiences on progress, challenges, and opportunities within the industry. The Petroleum and Chemical Industry Conference (PCIC Mexico), co-organized with respected institutions in Mexico, brings together engineers, consultants, and practitioners from all over the world, interested in the advances of electrical applications and technology related to the petroleum and chemical industry.
