Message to Sponsors
The IEEE Kansas City Section and the University of Missouri - Kansas City are proud to host the 2008 IEEE Region 5 P-BASICS2 Technical, Professional and Student Conference. The primary purpose of the 2008 IEEE Region 5 P-BASICS2 Conference is to provide IEEE members the opportunity to network with one another in an environment that will enhance their technical and professional skills. In the tradition of previous conferences, this year’s schedule will comprise the following events:
• April 17th (Thur) – Tutorial
Engineers from all over Region 5 (Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, and parts of New Mexico, Illinois, Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota) come to this meeting to enhance and update their professional skills and to network. Student competitions are a significant function at this conference, with robotics and circuits competitions, as well as paper competitions at the undergraduate and graduate level. There were over 300 students at last year's competition, and we expect to exceed that number significantly! A career fair, targeted towards the students, will be held in the same venue as the student competitions on Saturday.
