The people who have trusted us so far
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).
Further information about the teams and results will be published soon at https://ieeextreme.org/
In August 2012, the new Board for IEEE Estonia Section was elected. In a web-based election conducted throughout August, about 15% of members cast their vote. The election results were announced by Section Chair Urmet Jänes at the annual August Seminar at Sagadi Manor.
Starting January 1st 2013, the Estonia Section will be led by the following people:
Section Chair Kalle Tammemäe
Section Vice-Chair Gert Jervan
Section Treasurer Eiko Kängsep
Section Secretary Andres Mellik
It brings us pleasure to announce that on March 17, 2018, IEEE has approved the formation of the IEEE Estonia Section Young Professionals Affinity Group. We would like to acknowledge the efforts of fellow IEEE Estonia Section volunteers towards the establishment of this new sub-unit including Urmet Jänes, Aleksei Tepljakov, and present IEEE Estonia Section Chair Peeter Ellervee. Interim Chair of the new unit is Aleksei Tepljakov who initiated the corresponding petiton.

The elections of four new Chapter Chairs are over and were almost very successful. For three chapters, new Chapter Chairs were elected. The new Chapter Chairs are as follows:
- Education Chapter: Tiia Rüütmann (activity 71%, all for);
- Computer / Communications / Information Theory Joint Chapter: Alar Kuusik (activity 37%, all for);
- Signal Processing / Circuits and Systems / Solid-State Circuits Joint Chapter: Gholamreza Anbarjafari (activity 58%, all for).
For the fourth chapter, Instrumentation and Measurement / Electron Devices / Engineering in Medicine and Biology Joint Chapter, the election results are contradicting and it is possible that new elections must be organized.
IEEExtreme 7.0 is over. Estonian teams did well; three best were inside the first hundred:
TeddyBears – 76th, TTU004 – 81th, 1Billion1 – 89th place.
Average number of points 865,396 for all 10 teams (unfortunately, there is no such assessment category), but it looks great!
