As a regional unit of IEEE, the world's largest non-profit professional association, the IEEE Kansai Section works to help IEEE members in the Kansai area achieve technological innovation through scholarly activities. Its main activities include supporting conferences sponsored by chapters, which are technology-oriented units; supporting education and career development of students through student branches, each of which is a university-based student unit; and promoting technologies through the organization of technical seminars and training sessions. Excellent achievements by IEEE members are recognized by GOLD Awards, Student Paper Awards, and Kansai Section Medals.
Technological innovations can have strong impacts on our society, economy, culture, and even on education and lifestyles. IEEE's core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE always looks to the future, and contributes to the future of scholarly research and technology development in industry, through IEEE activities on research and development, education and standardization among others.
Technological innovation can only be achieved by the power of young people. We are looking forward to having many students and young engineers join IEEE and its Kansai Section. The IEEE Kansai Section will help engineers in different generations and regions, such as young engineers and experienced engineers, engineers in Kansai area and engineers worldwide, meet and communicate each other, and eventually achieve innovations.
