IEEE IES Students and Young Professionals Activity Committee
Activities Program for the Conferences


The IEEE IES Students and Young Professionals Activity Committee (S&YP-AC) would like to introduce a project of scientific and social Activities Program.

The offer is focused, but not limited to the IEEE Students and Young Professional (S&YP). Our support indirectly can help Supervisors, Mentors and Professors that would like to promote interesting work of their younger colleagues. Mentors can support their mentee not only by co-authoring scientific papers but also by advising them to join the IEEE IES to be able to attend IES conferences. The support can be divided into the following main point of cooperation:

A flagship program is:

The IES Student Paper and Travel Assistance (IES SPTA).

Since 2018, a new name of this type of support is implemented:
the IES S&YP Paper Assistance (IES-SYPA).

The rules generally remains the same but in addition, Young Professionals are supported. Moreover, the distance to the conference is going to be taken into account as one of the coefficient during the selection process.

The goal of the IES-SYPA is to financially support the travel for the IEEE IES S&YP to attend an IES conference. The number, rules and examples of 3 minutes videos of the IES-SYPA can be found at the IEEE IES Internet platforms [1]-[4].

To apply for the IES-SYPA, please go to the IES Manuscript Submission System (MSS) provided by the Chairman of supported conference. The list of the conference can be found at IEEE IES website [1]. Generally it is simple. If your paper will be accepted and if at least one co-author is an IEEE IES Student or YP Member, you will be able to apply for the assistance [1].

Important note: IES Students and Young Professionals’ from the IES Student & Young Professionals Forum (SF technical track in the MSS) have priority in the competition for IES-SYPA.

When SandYPs finally reach an IES conference, they may have an opportunity to take a part in:


S&YP scientific and social activities during the conference.

Generally, the conference Chairs with the IES are going to prepare the following activities, but please note that these may change closer to the conference date and depends on the conference. (Prior the conference all information should be available on the conference website and in the conference proceedings):

      • Student & Young Professionals Forum Day

  • A S&YP Tutorials and Industry Links like at the previous IECONs [5] or at the ISIEs [6].


Where Mentors and YPs from an Academia and from an Industry are trying to show the link between each other.

  • A S&YP Forum (IES-SF).


Where the S&YP presentations could be oral and/or poster and/or 3-minute talks. The form and timing of presentations is dependent on a conference. Here some competition is between scientists are planned. S&YP from this track have a priority in the IES-SYPA competition.
