It is with heavy hearts we learn about the passing of our dear colleague Toomas Parve in the morning of April 15, 2020. Toomas was an active member of IEEE IMS and EMBS, has been the chair of the IM/EMB/ED chapter and has contributed to the development of IEEE Estonia Section in numerous ways. He will be dearly missed.
The new IEEE.ee website has finally been launched! While some of the sections have not been fully updated yet, the core functionality has already been implemented, including the reimagining of how events are represented on the website.
We’d like to announce an event organized in co-operation with IEEE Estonia Young Professionals:
The event is dedicated to (serious) game design in Unreal Engine 4 and consists of a seminar part (lecture + talks, seat limit 30) and a workshop (VR lab, seat limit 15).
In order to register, please use the meetup.com page, and if you are interested in the workshop, please also register to it separately following the link on meetup.com. We are looking forward to welcoming you at this event!
The IEEE Xtreme Programming Competition 12.0 has concluded! IEEE Xtreme is an annual hackathon and competitive programming challenge where student teams from all over the world compete to solve a set of programming tasks. This year, 4046 teams participated in the event from 73+ countries among them 8 teams from Estonia divided between TalTech and Tartu universities. The teams had to solve 24+2 tasks in 24 hours. Less than half of the teams were able to achieve a score.
We would like to congratulate the team from Tartu University for reaching the 6th place in the competition! We would also like to thank all the proctors who devoted their time to supervise the teams in both TalTech University (6 teams) and Tartu University (2 teams).
A bit of statistics from neighboring countries: Latvia (1 team, score 342.13), Lithuania (one team, no score), Poland (one team, no score), Finland (1 team, score 129.83), Russia (1 team, score 411.36), Belgium (10 teams, best score 1320.87), Austria (21 teams, best score 1273.31), Switzerland (5 teams, best score 2107.1 = third place).
