IEEE ISBC 2013

The IEEE ISBC 2013 (Iberian Student Branch Congress) was an event organized by FEUP’s IEEE student branch with the goal of gathering student branches of Portugal and Spain although there were also some students representing branches from Greece, Turkey and Poland, creating an amazing networking environment.

\r\n

The first day of the event started with an opening session and presentations from all the student branches. The presentations were part of a competition and showed each branch’s activities throughout the previous year.

\r\n

On the second day of this event some of the students and researchers from the universities that attended the event shared some of their knowledge with workshops. The workshops focused different areas some were softskills and others full with technical content. We also had the opportunity to learn about interesting projects that could be developed within the student branches.

The Gala dinner at the Axis Hotel had a lot of class, elegance. There was wine, good food and above all, knowledge exchanged between members of the student branches. There was also the award ceremony for the best student branches presentations, on the first day of the ISBC. Our SB was awarded with the second place, being the only portuguese branch to receive an award.

During the final day we had the opportunity to participate in a guided tour of Oporto. We took the metro near FEUP and stopped in Jardim do Morro in Gaia. Then, we passed near the Porto wine caves and crossed the D. Luís I bridge to the Oporto side. We walked to the S. Bento train station and then to the Clerigos Tower. Finally we had the oportunity to taste the best eclairs in Oporto. After that, we walked to the Trindade metro station and went back to FEUP.

Before returning to Lisbon, the organization showed us their SB room and we offered them some ISCTE-IUL merchandising.
