21 March 2017 Comments Off on IEEE 2017 Graduate Research Conference

The IEEE Graduate Research Conference (GRC), organized by the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and the Bilkent IEEE Student Branch, will take place on Friday, March 24 in the lecture halls on the ground floor of the EE building. During this day-long event, Bilkent EEE students will describe their state-of-the-art research projects in oral and poster presentations.

This year’s schedule includes 66 oral presentations, to be run in four parallel sessions. Graduate students will share their research projects and results, and answer questions from the audience. The sessions, numbering 12 in total, will cover various areas of electrical and electronics engineering including signal processing, communications, electromagnetics, biomedical engineering, electronics, photonics, control, robotics, networks and nanotechnology. In addition to the oral sessions, two poster sessions will feature a total of 62 presentations. During the poster sessions, the audience will have a chance to interact with the researchers and learn more about the research being conducted in the Bilkent EEE department. The conference will also include some invited poster/demo presentations by EEE undergraduate students.

At the end of the day, a jury consisting of faculty members and senior PhD students will recognize the best presenters. Four “best oral presentation” awards and two “best poster” awards will be given out.

The event promises to be a day full of knowledge sharing, and a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to experience the world of research in engineering and science. Participants will also have a chance to interact with researchers from other universities, as well as professionals from top engineering companies in Turkey.

The Bilkent IEEE Student Branch and the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering welcome all to this festival of engineering! The detailed program for the conference can be found at
