You do not want to miss this engaging and fast-paced panel where we will be tapping into the minds of todayís youngest and brightest engineers. Among the topics Mr. Reinsel will be exploring include the technological lines between privacy and personalization, the hype and heresy around wearables, as well as the passion and purpose driving each of these young bright minds. Bring your questions, queries, and quandaries (and maybe a job application or two!) and get them addressed by these young rising stars within the IEEE community. This is sure to be a real crowd-pleaser of a session, so donít be late!
