The IEEE PES GM 2016 organizing committee and the PES Power
Engineering Education Committee are happy to announce that there will
be both a Student Support Program and a Student Poster Contest at the
2016 GM in Boston, MA. More information on other activities
for students will be posted on the GM
At the GM
2016, 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 a 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) timely application; (d) merit of
application; (e) support provided by the student's advisor. (f)
previous participation in PEEC sponsored programs; and, (g) number of
accepted applicants from any given university. Women, minorities and
undergraduates are especially encouraged to apply. Late or incomplete
applications will not be accepted.
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 prioritized on
the above criteria for support.
We plan to notify
students of acceptance into this program by 1st April 2016.
Please note that no funds will be available from PEEC to help with
