We are continuing with the preparation of our annual symposium, the preliminary program can be found on the ReSMiQ web portal (Annual Symposium 2018). In addition to the presentations given by international experts, a large number of posters summarizing the work of our students will be presented at this symposium. We hope to see you there in great numbers. On the other hand, the preparations for the IEEE NEWCAS 2018 conference are progressing rapidly. Authors were informed of the outcome of the review process, the acceptance rate is 49%. In pursuing the objective to present a conference of the highest standard, three renowned speakers will give plenary sessions. The program is on the conference web portal (newcas2018.org). We wish to convey our thanks to all those who contributed to the success of this edition of NEWCAS and we invite all members of the ReSMiQ to participate in great numbers.
On another level, we welcome the new student committee of ReSMiQ. This committee brings together a student representative at each of the 9 partner institutions. Its mandate is to disseminate the various activities and announcements to students and help promote ReSMiQ. One of the 9 student representative also seats on the executive committee.
We invite members of ReSMiQ who have announcements to circulate among all members and students of the center to send them to us. They will be posted on the ReSMiQ web portal in the News> Announcements section. By the same token, we invite all researchers and students to visit this section regularly to be informed of recent announcements.
