MIT EE/CS Design Contest

Dear IEEE Chapter Leaders, Advisors, and Students,

Happy Holidays! I would like to introduce you to an opportunity for you and your members to win up to $3,000 in a contest sponsored by several organizations here at MIT. Please pass this information along to whomever might be interested (like your chapter members). We need to know if you are interested in participating by January 3rd.

Innovate Canada FPGA (C) Programming Competition

FPGA accelerators are the trend for next-generation computing. If you want to show-off your exceptional programming skills and your creativity, and even change the world, participate in Innovate Canada FPGA Programming Competition! This event is sponsored by Altera, Impulse and IEEE.

You have to come up with an innovative idea to develop applications on Altera FPGAs. Examples include medical imaging, financial modeling and face recognition. The deadline to submit your proposal is January 25, 2008. Once your proposal is accepted, you will receive educational material, development software from Altera and Impulse, and a DE1 Altera Development kit to keep.

Thanks to Impulse, you don't have to be a HDL (Hardware Description Language) expert to win. The Impulse software is able to convert your code in C into HDL, with optimization in parallelization and pipelining.

PBwiki is Hiring at University of Toronto

We're a small team (we have more servers than employees) but we do big things. PBwiki is the worlds largest private wiki host and millions depend on us for their business, their classroom, and their personal lives. We handle a lot of data (more pages than Wikipedia!), a TON of web traffic, and we have a lot of fun doing it. We're VC-funded but are making real revenue.

What makes us tick? We love building useful tools for the web. We develop new features on Monday, and deploy it to millions of users by Friday.


Room: BA1170

Call for Panelists - ECE Exam Prep Session

Hi all,

This is a call for panelists for the ECE Exam Prep Session. We are looking for people who can provide pointers on writing ECE exams or studying techniques for FIRST YEAR ECE courses. Objective here is not to run a review session but a rather help session on how to identify strengths and weaknesses and how to excel in the exams. This will also be a great opportunity for you to meet other brilliant minds and practice speaking in front of a large group of strangers.

You do not need to be enrolled in the ECE Student Peer Mentorship Program to participate. And you don't need to be the top guy in your class in order to contribute (if you are a genius who doesn't need to study much, chances are your preferred method of exam preparation doesn't apply to most frosh students). If you've taken the first year ECE courses and have a will to help, that's all that matters.

We are looking for 4-6 panelists in total. If you think you can help out, please email with a brief intro of yourself (if you are not in the mentorship program) and rank the following timeslots by your preference:

1. Nov 12, Monday 11AM - 1PM

2. Nov 12, Monday 5PM - 7PM

3. Nov 13, Tuesday 1PM - 2PM

4. Nov 14, Wednesday 12PM - 2PM

5. Nov 16, Friday 12PM - 2PM
