IEEE France Section has organised an event for the 125th anniversary of IEEE on November 6th & 7th, 2009. This took place in a very prestigious historical monument, the Royaumont Abbey, the building of which was achieved in the 13th century. It is located some 40 km north from Paris, not very far from Charles de Gaulle Airport.
President Elect Moshe KAM crossed the Atlantic to attend both days of this very well attended series of conferences. He Himself gave a high level presentation on the IEEE strategy and challenges for its future.
IEEE Headquarters were represented by Peggy LEFKIN, whose workshop on the day-to-day operations of IEEE OUs was particularly well received.
Some 10 high level technical presentations were given by outstanding experts, highlighting many of the research topics in progress, both in the scope of IEEE and further (e.g. telemedicine, nanotechnologies).
This event has been very well attended; and the organisation has been absolutely perfect thanks to Daniel Pasquetâ€™s efficiency.
