From: International Symposium on Industrial Electronics (isie97@dei.uminho.pt)
Date: Mon Feb 24 1997 - 14:37:14 EET

Dear College,

As you my have heard or read, the 1997 International Symposium on
Industrial Electronics, ISIE’97, will be held at University of Minho. In
parallel with this event and within it we are organizing a Student Forum
on Industrial Electronics.
The purpose of this Forum is to provide a place where engineering
students can present and discuss topics on Industrial Electronics and
related areas. This is clearly a good opportunity for students, to
interact directly with students from different countries and scientific
cultures and to contact with senior researchers on Industrial

Henceforth, we would like to beg you to advertise this Student Forum and
to encourage your Diploma and Msc students to submit papers.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students.

systems, algorithms, intelligent mechatronics, concurrent engineering,
medical electronics, virtual reality and telesensation, multimedia.

Submission format: Diploma and Msc registered students are invited to
submit two copies of a full paper, in English, with 6 pages maximum, to
be presented in a Poster Session. The submitted papper should be in
final format and should include: title, authors, mailing address of each
author, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses. It should include a
clearly defined problem statement supported by the relevant references.
It should state why the work was undertaken and what are its outcomes.
The development description should be comprehensive enough to allow the
assessment of the work's originality and contribution to the technical
area and should also provide conclusions. Paper's format can be found on

Paper Acceptance: Each accepted paper will be included in the Forum
Proceedings and will be presented in a poster format. The 6 to 8 best
papers will be selected for an oral presentation in a dedicated special
session within ISIE'97.

Poster Format: Dimension of 150cmX100cm (height X width) maximum and
must include title, authors, mailing address of each author, e-mail
addresses, text, figures and references.
