IEEE UFFC France Chapter Finally Founded

UFFC-S had never had a chapter in France even if several international conferences such as IEEE IUS 2026 Tours, EFTF-IFCS 2017 Besançon, ISAF 2022 Tours were organized in France by several IEEE members of the UFFC-S. We finally corrected that and formed the UFFC France Chapter in early 2024. A key aim of the chapter is to provide an attractive forum for technical growth and professional networking for the France-area UFFC community.

For those readers that are local to the France area, consider joining us at an upcoming event and volunteering to help build a great chapter. Kick-off meeting is scheduled on May 2nd 2024 close to Tours area, in the Centre Val de Loire Region. We are also looking to partner with other chapters for future events. Contact Serge Dos Santos, INSA CVL ((Click to show email), Linkedin, Collabratec) to learn more.
