Cross-Sectional Student Branch (and GOLD / Young Professional) Congresses History


 

It is important to note that prior to the Student Branch (and GOLD) Congresses, (annual) Transnational Student Meetings were organized where representatives of Region 8 Student Branches met. For instance, in the Netherlands (1985), Finland (1986), Switzerland (1987), Belgium (1988: over 40 students from Benelux, Denmark, UK, Finland, Germany, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the USA), Portugal (1989), the Netherlands (1991: 76 students from 12 countries) and Turkey (1992: over 45 students from 16 countries). Especially at the early student meetings, the oral finals of the Student Paper Contest were held at these meetings.

 

After the change of ‘IEEE GOLD’ into ‘IEEE Young Professionals,’ the name of the congress became ‘Student and
Young Professional Congress.’
