ASEE Student Division Conference Guide

The kind folks with the Georgia Tech student chapter have put together a comprehensive guide for the 2013 ASEE Annual Conference!

Please reference the document below for any of your travel and safety concerns, as well as for food and sightseeing! Additionally, here are two maps of Atlanta that may be useful (Downtown and Midtown and near the Georgia World Congress Center)!

Announcing USASBE Launch!

USASBE Launch! (http://www.usasbelaunch.com/) is an innovative student startup competition designed to provoke and reward undergraduate students from all disciplines who can:

  • deliberately design an impactful idea,
  • identify, test, validate business model hypotheses with customer development tools, and
  • show traction (how well a startup is delivering its business model and how well the target demographic is accepting that business model).

Outcomes of this competition are:

  • students actively engage in entrepreneurship, and improve their chances of success,
  • create a global mentor network to assist student entrepreneur and innovator teams,
  • be a catalyst for economic growth; students create well-vetted innovations and companies for the establishment of going concerns that hire and contribute to society through their innovative product and service commercialization.

There is no required application process, there are no required fees or purchases, there is no required format or procedures.  We will recommend and train students to use specific processes and tools, such as Alex Bruton’s deliberate ideation process, Steve Blank’s customer development process, Alexander Osterwalder’s business model canvas, and Eric Ries’ lean startup methodology.  Students can engage as much or as little as they desire.  

This competition brings together the following organizations to create the most cross-disciplinary and far-reaching student startup competitions:

  • 1,000+ United States Association for Small Business & Entrepreneurship (USASBE) members,
  • Thousands of National Collegiate Inventors & Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) stakeholders,
  • Student membership of 750 Collegiate Entrepreneurship Organization (CEO) chapters,
  • 1,200 National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) members,
  • Thousands of International Council for Small Business (ICSB) member institutions,
  • Hundreds of arts educators from Self-Employment in the Arts (SEA)

For more information, or to inquire about sponsorships or providing mentoring to student participants, please contact Dr. Doan Winkel at dwinkel@ilstu.edu or Michael Issa at michael@quipuapps.com.

2013 IEEE Systems and Information Engineering Design Symposium

The 2013 IEEE Systems and Information Engineering Design Symposium is a student-focused international forum for research, development, and design in Systems and Information Engineering. The conference will be April 26, 2013, in Charlottesville, Virginia; abstracts are due February 11, 2013.

We hope that you will join us in Charlottesville. Please share this invitation with your students and colleagues.

2013 IEEE Systems and Information Engineering Design Symposium
April 26, 2013

University of Virginia
Charlottesville, VA

Abstracts Due: 2/11/2013
Accepted Papers Due: 4/1/2013

The IEEE Systems and Information Engineering Design Symposium (SIEDS’13) is a student-focused international forum for applied research, development, and design in Systems and Information Engineering. The Symposium is the leading showcase for undergraduate and Master’s graduate design projects, such as those from capstone design courses or from baccalaureate, honors, or design-oriented graduate theses. Projects must extend beyond the analysis of systems and include the synthesis of alternative solutions to a problem. When appropriate, implementation and testing of a design is encouraged. Faculty, industry, and government project advisors are welcome coauthors.

Limited travel scholarships are available for presenting student authors.

Contributed papers are solicited that apply diverse methodologies, including:

  • Data Modeling, including Big Data, Data Analytics, and Data Mining
  • Decision Analysis and Optimization
  • Systems Integration
  • Simulation and Stochastic Modeling
  • Human Factors and Cognitive Engineering
  • Risk Analysis, Technology Management, and Policy

Papers can describe work in a wide variety of application areas, including:

  • Telecommunications and Information Technology
  • Healthcare
  • Energy
  • Robotics and Sensor Networks
  • Transportation and Logistics
  • Critical Infrastructure
  • Military Applications
  • Economic and Financial Systems
  • Environmental
  • E-Business
  • Manufacturing
  • Education

Papers should emphasize the application of fundamental systems analysis and design concepts. Symposium papers presented will appear in a copyrighted CD-ROM proceedings, available on-site and through IEEE Press. Papers not accepted for the proceedings will be considered for the conference poster session.

Student Division Call for Papers and Posters

Announcing this year’s call for papers and posters! Much like last year, the paper session will focus on Tricks of the Trade. Here, we invite students to submit papers that address problems, issues, and experiences related to succeeding within undergraduate or graduate school and enhancing use and proliferation of robust educational research methods within engineering education.

We are doing something much different with the poster session than what has been done in previous years. The poster session will be related to students’ future research and/or proposed dissertation research. The purpose of this feedback-focused poster session is to connect students with faculty and other students who can provide feedback on the proposed research. During this session, students will have the opportunity to present their proposed research and to gain insightful feedback from experts within the numerous fields and areas of interest within engineering regarding their work. Topics of interest are wide open, related to all areas of research in engineering education.

The poster session is just one of the many ways that the officers in the Student Division are trying to enhance the scholarly work of our students and to create a niche for our division at the conference.

All students are encouraged to participate in the poster session and/or paper session. The abstract submission deadline is September 21, 2012.

Congratulations 2012-2013 Officers!
