The IEEE India Council is very thankful to all the members of the Bombay Section for having kindly agreed to host ACE 2003 in Pune on 12, 13 & 14 Dec 2003 at a short notice. ACE is a very prestigious and the single most important activity of the IEEE members in India and hence we all should put in the best efforts to ensure that it turns out to be a big success. The theme of “Emerging Technology trends” is interesting and will be informative. Please watch the web sites of India Council or Bombay section for ACE 2003 details.
Prof. Gupta, the VC of Student Activities will soon be releasing the details of the MV Chauhan Student Paper Contest. The other important student activity is the Students Congress 2003 which will be hosted by the IEEE Student Branch (29861) of Mepco Schlenk Engg. College, Sivakasi falling under Madras Section from 9 to 11 October 2003.
India has over 220 student branches but we do not have an accurate data base of counsellors and office bearers. HK is putting in great efforts to compile the Data Base. Those of you who have latest information especially the Section SACs please share it with HK at email@example.com
Best wishes to Kolkata and Madras sections for the Silver jubilee year. Kolkata section is planning for a grand celebration in November 2003.
It’s again the time to vote for the IEEE President Elect. Very important that all of us in India exercise our right to choose the office bearers. Statistics show that only a few among us vote and hence may be the right candidate does not get chosen. The ballot papers for the 2003 President Elect might have reached many and I once again appeal to all of you to vote. You may peruse the ballot papers and will notice that one of the candidates is Cleon Anderson. He is a good friend of us and if you find him worthy please vote for him.
