IEEE Grand Tech (GT) is an IEEE Region 8 Computer Society initiative. It is a yearly technical one-day event focused on computing technologies. IEEE GT Lebanon 2017 is aimed to be the largest technology-related student conference in Lebanon, and brings together distinguished professionals, researchers, and entrepreneurs who will share their experiences and current work in computing technologies.
The themes of IEEE-GT Lebanon 2017 are cybersecurity, IoT, and technology entrepreneurship.
The IEEE GT Lebanon 2017 conference is organized and hosted by the IEEE Student Branch at the University of Balamand, in close cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Lebanon Section and the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Balamand.
The event aims to group an audience of 200~250 telecom/computer engineering young professionals, graduates, researchers, and IEEE student members from all Lebanese Universities.
We are diligently working on bringing renowned speakers from Lebanon, as well as leaders in the industry to explore these important topics. This conference includes keynote speeches, panel discussions, and focused technical workshops on cutting edge issues related to our industry. There will also be various opportunities for networking and socializing with colleagues and professors from other universities and from the industry.
