Event Description

IEEE Montreal Section and IEEE Montreal Industry Relations Committee are very pleased to invite you to attend the 8th edition of IEEE Research Boost event that will be held ONLINE, on  November 17th, 2021, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM. The event aims to foster collaborative research projects and networking among the industry, government and academia. It is an evening event during which invited experts and leaders from the industry, government and academia will present some of the state-of-the-art innovations in their field of expertise.

A 3-minute presentation competition is available to offer a great opportunity for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows to present the significance of their research work to the industry and a distinguished judging panel. Three prizes of values $300$200 and $100 will be offered to the best three presentations in this competition.
