ClubINFO – CTF End

The CTF is officially finished. We would like to thank all the teams for their active participation and motivation. Congratulations to Sci_Beer-Sea_Curry-Tea_m (1st) , HSHN (2nd), Cyber Giraffe (3rd).

ClubINFO – Capture the Flag

The ClubINFO, part of the IEEE Student Branch, is currently running a Capture The Flag (CTF) for students of UCLouvain. A CTF is a security contest where contestants have to resolve challenges, mostly related to cybersecurity, to get flags. A flag is a sequence of characters and each flag is associated with a score. The winning team will be the one earning the highest score.

The CTF started the 11th February and will end on the 4th March. There are 12 challenges and 15 teams are participating.

Company Visits – Spring 2020

It is with great please that the IEEE Student Branch would like to invite to two events this year with regards to their annually organized company visits !

These visits are organized to connect ICTEAM researchers to the world of professional industries. This activity will attempt to merge academic research with real world industrial problems.

This activity will necessitate an on-site interaction with industrial companies here in Belgian to discover their impressive infrastructure and to be able to interact with specialists in the field.

During this semester, two visits are proposed:

  • MULTITEL (https://www.multitel.be/)
    • at Mons on Friday the 20th of March from 13h00 to 17h00
    • 17 places available
    • The visit will be held in English
    • MULTITEL is a research and technological innovation center that acts as an interface between the two worlds of research and the industry. Their main activities are in the fields of Computer Networks, Photonics, Audio Processing, Computer Vision and Signal Processing. The visit should hold many interesting laboratory visits (including a huge Anechoic chamber) as well as interaction with experts in their various fields.
  • UMICORE (https://www.umicore.com/)
    • at Antwerp on Monday the 20th of Avril from 8h20 to 15h00
    • 15 places available
    • The visit will be held in English
    • UMICORE is the biggest recycling company of precious metals in the world. Their main activities are in the fields of recycling, production of materials for rechargeable batteries and the production of catalysts for industrial chemistry. This visit is a great opportunity to be able to see how dependent today’s technology is on precious resources and how hard it is to recycle them.

You can register to any of the two activities (either both or one of the two if you prefer) via the registration forms below:

2019 IEEE/ICTEAM Best Master’s Thesis Award

Each year, the UCL IEEE Student Branch, composed of ICTEAM PhD students and supported by both the IEEE and the ICTEAM, organizes a contest for rewarding the best master’s theses in its fields of interest. The goals of the contest are twofold:

  • First, to reward outstanding works from both technical and presentation-wise perspectives. To this end, a jury of researchers reads the abstracts, attends the master thesis presentations and interviews the participants. The three best candidates will receive a monetary reward.
  • Second, to recommend potential candidates for an international contest: the IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest. IEEE’s Region 8 spans Europe, Africa and the Middle-East. We have had several successes at this Student Paper Contest, reaching the top 3 in previous years. More info can be found here.

For more information about the contest, please check the rules below. To register, please fill in the form below.

Activities of the Club Elec 2018 – 2019

The Club Elec is the electronics club of UCLouvain supported by the IEEE Student Branch. Each year, many different activities are proposed to discover and learn electronics, from technical presentations to hands-on projects. Here is a short overview of the projects for 2018-2019:

  • Presentation of the useful electronics components for DIY projects.
  • Audio amplifier and filter project.
  • Introduction to DC motors and chopper circuits for motor control
  • Arduino-based guided robot
  • Robot track contest (coming soon…)

If you would like to know more, don’t hesitate to contact members of the Club Elec, visit their website (here), or come to room Stevin a.143 any Wednesday between 1pm and 2pm.

Note that it is still time to take part in the ongoing robot project and contest, if you’re interested.
