The organization of ISCAS 2020 has paid keen attention to the implementation of a Technical Program attractive for Young Professionals and Early Stage Researchers. On the one hand, a carefully selected education program has been scheduled addressing timely and emerging topics within the scope of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. This program includes tutorials, mini-tutorials, and some 20 overview lectures delivered by top experts in their respective fields. On the other hand, specific events aiming to offer younger members guidance and advice in their careers have also been planned. In these events, experienced professionals in the field of Circuits and Systems will discuss with Young Professionals and Researchers relevant aspects such as entrepreneurship, career perspective in industry and academia, or publication advice.
Three activities, organized by and tailored specifically for CASS Young Professionals and Researchers, have been planned.
October 11, 17:30-18:30 / Room Giralda 1-2
A panel with the participation of Editors-in-Chief of IEEE/CASS Transactions on the topic “How to publish efficiently in the CASS Journals?” will be held after the afternoon Tutorials on Sunday, October 11.
