From the very beginning of the IEEE Germany Section the National Society VDE was considered a powerful peer partner in achieving IEEE`s goals in Region 8. The secretary of the IEEE Section ''Excom'' always has been a VDE staff member. Apart from minor different points of view regarding confrence scheduling, cooperation was always beneficial for both parties. In 199X, the benevolent relationship was formally documented by a cooperation agreement defining the most important issues where mutual understanding and joint action was highly desirable. This cooperation agreement is still alive today, both societies enjoy the many synergies.

The 2004 edition of the biennial IEEE Region 8 Student Branch and GOLD Congress (R8SBC), the biggest gathering for students and young professionals, was hosted by the Student Branch at Universität Passau.

More than 120 representatives of Student Branches and GOLD groups ranging from Siberia to South Africa, came together for workshops and training sessions on "Creating tomorrow's Region 8". A group of 30 local volunteers had organized an interactive and enriching program for the future leaders of the IEEE.

Besides training and leadership sessions, workshops and sightseeing, the congress featured a multicultural night, where representatives from each country mingled and shared their home spirit, traditional dances, food and drinks. 2004 IEEE President Arthur Winston and his wife joined for a tour along the different stands, tasting and listening, being drawn away for picture moments and signing t-shirts.

Relationship between IEEE Section and National Engineering Society VDE

From the very beginning of the IEEE Germany Section the National Society VDE was considered a powerful peer partner in achieving IEEE`s goals in Region 8. The secretary of the IEEE Section Excom always has been a VDE staff member. Apart from minor different points of view regarding confrence scheduling, cooperation was always beneficial for both parties. In 199X, the benevolent relationship was formally documented by a cooperation agreement defining the most important issues where mutual understanding and joint action was highly desirable. This cooperation agreement is still alive today, both societies enjoy the many synergies.

Around the world in just a few hours - Region 8 Student Branch and GOLD Congress in Passau

The 2004 edition of the biennial IEEE Region 8 Student Branch and GOLD Congress (R8SBC), the biggest gathering for students and young professionals, was hosted by the Student Branch at Universität Passau.

More than 120 representatives of Student Branches and GOLD groups ranging from Siberia to South Africa, came together for workshops and training sessions on "Creating tomorrow's Region 8". A group of 30 local volunteers had organized an interactive and enriching program for the future leaders of the IEEE.

Besides training and leadership sessions, workshops and sightseeing, the congress featured a multicultural night, where representatives from each country mingled and shared their home spirit, traditional dances, food and drinks. 2004 IEEE President Arthur Winston and his wife joined for a tour along the different stands, tasting and listening, being drawn away for picture moments and signing t-shirts. If you ask them today, they still share great memories of a colorful and cheerful evening!

What the presidential couple did not know was that a day earlier the local organizing committee lead by Michael Glögl, Eva Lang and Markus Reschka had encountered trouble when finding out that the hotel reservation for the guests was done in a completely different city!
