On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to announce that the 5th Annual Symposium on Cyber Security and Digital Forensics will be held on Friday, March 29th at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Wilson School of Design, Richmond. Featured presenters will include academics, industry, law enforcement and government representatives to provide diverse view points in the identification and response to challenges and opportunities in the context of cyber security and digital forensics.
The 5th symposium will provide an informal and welcoming atmosphere for industry and academia to discuss their planned goals, progress and achievements. This symposium will raise awareness of global cyber security potential threats, ethical issues and challenges, and in the process, provide opportunities for collaboration and networking between academics, students and industry. Our combined understanding helps them better prepare for future challenges and opportunities in the cyber world.
Location: Room: Room 4900 Bldg: Wilson School of Design Kwantlen Polytechnic University 8771 Lansdowne Road Richmond, British Columbia V6X3X7
The Vancouver Section of the IEEE promotes the exchange of technical information and awareness of the local engineering community by:
Hosting evening, half-day, or full-day technical presentations and seminars on topics of current interest
Organizing tours of local companies, research labs, and industrial sites
Arranging for local support and participation in engineering conferences and symposia held in Vancouver.
Other important activities include:
Recognizing local members by nominating them for advancement in IEEE membership grade and/or IEEE technical and service awards,
Arranging for industry support of projects organized by IEEE student branches and chapters, and,
Organizing events or activities concerning either technology or public policy for the general public.
The Vancouver Section was established on August 22, 1911. The Section encompasses the geographical area of the province of BC, except for Vancouver Island (which is part of the Victoria Section). The Section currently has about 2200 active members, including 325 students at BCIT, SFU, and UBC. It is the fourth largest Section in Canada.
The Section operates on a fiscal year that runs from May - April of each year. The Annual General Meeting and election of new officers are held on the second Monday of each May. Meetings and social events are generally held from September - April.
The Section's nine active technical chapters represent 15 of the 37 technical societies and councils of IEEE and are listed on the menu bar to the left. Each chapter holds 5-6 technical meetings or tours each year. Some chapters organize a few half or full day seminars, and a distinguished lecture or two.
The Section also has active committees responsible for:
GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade)
IEEE Continuing education courses are offered online at http://www.ieee.org/web/education/home/index.html
Local courses are also offered at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC, the School of Engineering Science at SFU, and at the British Columbia Institute of Technology.
The Section publishes a newsletter, "IEEE CONTACT", 9 times each year (from September - May) that is emailed to members.
