Since 2015, the IEEE Communications Society has hosted an official international school series event each year where student members can participate in unique experiences to learn about the latest technological developments in key areas of communications.
The IEEE ComSoc School Series is designed exclusively for ComSoc student members and features lectures by international experts, poster presentations, site visits, and hands-on demos on a range of fundamental to advanced and hot topics in communications. The typical duration of an IEEE ComSoc School Series event is 3 to 5 days and can be either in-person or virtual (online only).
Call for Proposals for 2023 is now closed.
Results of proposal selection process will be distributed by 30 September 2022. The ComSoc Educational Services Board may request additional information before final approval is given on proposals.
The IEEE Communications Society will provide funding to the extent available (approximately US$5,000-US$20,000 per event), to support the event (typically, virtual / online only events are significantly less costly than in-person/hybrid events). However, securing additional funding or sponsorships is extremely useful for ensuring success, and the IEEE Communications Society encourages organizers to include suggestions to that end in the proposal.
