A Day of Innovation and Collaboration: IEEE CASS Outreach Day in Shanghai


The bustling city of Shanghai played host to a remarkable event as the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) gathered distinguished guests and members for a day of networking, knowledge sharing, and exploration of the future of electrical engineering. The IEEE CASS Day event, held at E-Coffee, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), and Buckingham Grand Hotel, was a resounding success, featuring insightful presentations and valuable interactions.

IEEE CASS Day in Shanghai, a gathering of leading minds in the field of electrical engineering, witnessed the participation of notable figures. Among the attendees were IEEE CASS Vice President Yoshifumi Nishio, IEEE CASS Past Vice President Guoxing Wang, and IEEE CASS Board of Governors (BoG) R10 Yongfu Li. The event also welcomed members of CASS Chapters (Chongqing, Hangzhou, Hefei, Shanghai, Shandong, Wuhan) and Student Branch Chapters from various universities.

Networking Lunch at E-Coffee

The event kicked off with a networking lunch at E-Coffee, providing a perfect backdrop for members to connect and share ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. This lunch was more than just a meal; it was an opportunity for like-minded professionals to forge new connections and reinforce existing ones.
