IEEE IAS Most Impactful Webinar Contest (MIWC) 2021

In line with the proposed IAS five-year strategic plan (2020-2025), the IAS Board is of the view to offer more value-added benefits to its students and Young Professionals. In this regard, several YP activities have been introduced. These include, but are but not limited to, Global Young Professional Mentoring Program (GMP) Contest 2021, IEEE IAS Annual Meeting Young Professional Event (Zoom session ) 2021, etc.

In keeping with this theme, IEEE IAS Most Impactful Webinar Contest (MIWC) 2021 has been developed and endorsed by the IAS Executive Board. This contest is meant to incentivise IEEE IAS Student Branch Chapters (SBCs) and IEEE YP Affinity Groups to develop and host their own webinar event, with the intention to benefit their membership base and attract new members to join the Society and their local entities.

This IEEE IAS MIWC – 2021 Contest is expected to:

-           provide opportunities for local/international engagement and interactions with peers from both industry and academia;

-           invest in membership elevation by strengthening relationships among Students and YPs;

-           enable and incentivize youth to suggest innovative programs, by them, for them, supported and acknowledged by the IEEE IAS.
