2008 pes General meeting

July 20-24, 2008

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, usa

The IEEE 2008 GM organizing committee and the PES Power Engineering Education Committee are happy to announce that there will be an exciting student program at the 2008 GM.  


There will be both a Student Hotel Support Program and a Student Poster Contest at the 2008 General Meeting in Pittsburgh. 

Student Support Program 


At the 2008 General Meeting, we will offer free hotel accommodation to a limited number of students who apply for this support. In case the number of applicants exceeds the number of students we are able to accommodate, there will be prioritization based on (a) whether student is submitting a poster in the student poster contest or has an accepted technical paper; (b) status, i.e., undergrad/grad --- undergraduates receive higher priority; (c) early application; (d) merit of application; (e) support provided by student's advisor. (f) Previous participation in PEEC sponsored programs (g) Number of accepted applicants from any given university. Women, minorities and undergraduates are especially encouraged to apply. 


In order to be selected for free accommodation it is not essential to have a technical paper accepted at the Conference, or to enter in the Student Poster Contest, but in the event that there are more student applicants than we can support, the applications will be ranked for support.
