Dear IMS members,

In 2022, we will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE). As part of the celebration, we will have a competition for innovative ideas to address specific WIE-related issues. Proposals are sought on the following areas: 

  • Smart childcare and education 
  • Elderly communication and senior safe living 
  • W-medicine, mental health aid, and security for women 
  • Sustainable environment solutions in rural and urban areas 

The submitted ideas will be evaluated by a panel formed by women scientists. The deadline for the submission is the 25th of December 2021. 

Ideas will be presented during an “Around the World 25th Anniversary-day” Virtual event. Winners will be invited to present their ideas in a dedicated session at the 2022 International Leadership Conference in San Diego in June 2022. 
A detailed information of the call can be found on the WIE@25 Website where a template is available for submissions. 

Please distribute this announcement to those who might be interested. IEEE-WIE members and non-members are welcome to apply. Students and Young Researchers are particularly encouraged to submit their ideas.
