An undergraduate student conference was held virtually and associated with the IEEE Systems Council conference, SYSCON 2024. The student conference was organized by Prasanta Ghosh (Technical Chair), Bozenna Pasik-Duncan, and Stephanie White  with the goal of providing a platform to undergraduate students for showcasing their innovative research talents and at the same time having an opportunity to interact with the IEEE Systems Council community and other students. We received overwhelming response and after reviewing submitted abstracts, nineteen selected student teams gave presentations of their research. Student groups from ten countries participated in this conference. The conference was an all-day event and student research was presented remotely using a zoom link. Each student team, represented by one team member, was allowed fifteen minutes for presentation followed by five minutes for questions and answers. Based on presentations, the committee awarded a $250 Best Paper Award and Certificate to three research teams and a Best Paper - Honorable Mention Certificate to three additional teams.

The conference achieved its goals and student feedback clearly indicates appreciation of the opportunity. Both graduate and undergraduate students were in the audience. Here are some students’ feedback, ‘Having focused on the theory of most of the math that I study, it is always a treat to see the applications that people are working on’. ‘I like to rate talks and presentations on whether I go and research the topics after the talk. This means that I am interested enough to keep on learning and researching on my own time’, ‘I also want to say that it is inspiring to see the good work that is being done at an international level.’

Ten countries across all IEEE regions were represented at the event. 

R1-6 (USA); R7 (Canada); R8 (Egypt, Nigeria, Uganda, UK); R9 (Brazil); and R10 (China, India, Pakistan) 

We are glad to announce that there will be a student conference associated with SYSCON 2025.
