Since 2015, the IEEE Communications Society has hosted an official international school series event each year where student members receive hands-on experience with the latest technological developments in key areas of communications.

The IEEE ComSoc School Series is designed for ComSoc student members who study communications and related areas. The ComSoc School Series program covers fundamental, advanced and hot topics in communications and features lectures by international experts, poster presentations, site visits, and hands-on demos.  The typical duration of an IEEE ComSoc School Series event is 4 to 5 days.

For the 2021 edition of IEEE ComSoc School Series, we need your help in deciding on a location, date, and program.

We invite you to submit a proposal, which should be no more than five pages and include the following:

  • The name and contact details of the main organizer.
  • The motivation for the location and the venue.
  • The dates chosen (2 possible one-week periods should be included in the submitted proposals)
  • A brief description of the project, its aims and proposed format (number of lectures, technical visits, hands-on sessions, etc.).
  • The proposed dissemination strategy and international outreach of the event.
  • A list of organization committee members and their roles.
  • A list of proposed speakers.
  • Confirmed and/or proposed funding or external sponsorships.
  • Any additional comments.

Please submit your proposal using the form below.

Proposals will be reviewed by end of September 2020 by the IEEE ComSoc Educational Services Board.

Proposal Submission Deadline: 31 August 2020

The IEEE Communications Society will provide funding to the extent available (approximately $15,000 per event), to support free lodging and meals for the duration of the event. 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.
