A group of student volunteers who share a common goal, are united together through the IEEE IAS/PELS Student Branch Chapters, from the Universities of Strathclyde, Glasgow Caledonian and Sheffield, with more joining soon....
Together with 5 other international IAS co-sponsor student-led conferences worldwide we support and learn from each other. See Club of the 6.
We are not alone
The Future Integrated Network Solutions (FINS) international conference will be held 24th-25th May, 2018 in the Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) building, in Glasgow, Scotland. Technical co-sponsorship for the conference has been requested from the IEEE IAS , PELS & PES . All papers that are accepted and presented will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore.
As the first student-led IEEE IAS conference in the UK, we aim to deliver a high technical engineering event where young professionals in academia and industry can meet together.
Dr Tomy Sebastion, IEEE IAS Society President
Dr Phillip Waite, Siemens, Chief Engineer
Dr Gerry Cleary, SSE, Technical Standards Engineer
A tour of the Power Network Demonstration Centre will be provided.
Dr Ibrahim Abdulhadi, PNDC, will give a tutorial about adaptive protection and challenges of network protection in the distribution network.
With more to be announced!
We mean every word.
The Future grids are transforming towards being intelligently co-operated with Integrating various resources and devices, forming a highly complex stuctured Network. Solutions are expected for the challenges that come with it.
And more than a technical term
Students, Young Researchers and Professionals are the Future. We believe the conference Interconnects all the various members of the power engineering community. To deliver a strong Networking Society is our primary objective.
