Welcome to 2018 IEEE MIT Undergraduate Research Technology Conference Submission Site                                                                    Sponsored by MIT IEEE Student Branch and IEEE Boston Section

Envisioning a technical conference targeted towards undergraduate students all over the globe, the MIT IEEE Student Branch in 2015 inaugurated the IEEE MIT Undergraduate Research Technology Conference. This is the 4th annual conference with the goal that the conference will be a venue where undergraduate students can meet to present, discuss, and develop solutions to advance technology for humanity. Participants can attend a rich program with renowned speakers, technical sessions, a student design competition, exhibits, networking, and social activities, presenting a great opportunity for students to interact with leading industry experts.

The conference theme is “Meet Innovative Technology”, and the six focus technical tracks are:

1. Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence (AI)
2. Security and Communications
3. Human-Computer Interaction and Graphics
4. Robotics and Controls
5. Biological and Biomedical Engineering (BioEECS) and Applied Physics
6. Computer Systems
7. Circuits, Materials, and Nanotechnologies
8. Theoretical Computer Science and Mathematics
