IEEE Queensland Section's 30th Anniversary

The Queensland Section was launched on February 22nd 1985. It will celebrate 30 years of continuous activity in February 2015. You can read a brief history of the section here.

Because the anniversary date falls on a Sunday the executive committee decided to bring forward the celebrations to the preceding week. The anniversary ceremonies will take place on Wednesday February 18th 2015.

The 30th anniversary will be marked by two events:

  • An afternoon function at The University of Queensland primarily for section members, students members and invited guests.
  • A formal dinner in the evening to honour the original founders of the section and those who have played a significant role in its subsequent development.

Sponsorship is being sought for these events. If you or your employer can assist in sponsorship activities please contact the organisers, whose details are given here.

The afternoon function will take place at the Advanced Engineering Building (Building 49) from 1pm to 3pm. Activities will include a poster competition with cash prizes. Entries are invited from students and members of the section’s affinity groups. Please read this 'call for posters' flyer for full details.

The formal dinner will be held at one of Brisbane’s leading 5-star venues: details will be finalised and posted here soon.

The 30th Anniversary will be a significant milestone in the Queensland Section’s history and you are invited to take part in it.
