EPICS in IEEE will launch its 15th Anniversary Celebration at the Rising Stars event in January 2024. The EPICS in IEEE chair, Stephanie Gillespie, will give two presentations, one presentation for students interested in EPICS in IEEE and one for Young Professionals interested in mentoring (details below).

”Launching our 15th Anniversary Celebration at Rising Stars where students and young professionals come to connect and be inspired, is the perfect opportunity to share the EPICS in IEEE program and the ways to get involved as both a student and young professional,” said Stephanie Gillespie, Ph.D., EPICS in IEEE Chair.
