IEEE MAS SB Website Contest The IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Professional Communication Society in association with the IEEE Madras Section announces a Website Contest for all the Student Branches (SBs). The website of an entity is the web identity of the entity and can be used to let the world know about the entity through periodical updates about the entity, its organisation and its events etc. IEEE Madras Section (IEEE MAS) desires all its SBs to have web presence through an exclusive website for each SBs. In fact, IEEE MAS recognises the SBs having their websites by providing 10 points during the annual evaluation of the SBs for awarding them at the annual meeting. However, it is noticed that not many SBs have their websites. To encourage the SBs to have their websites, the IEEE CS & IEEE PCS along with IEEE MAS have come forward with this contest.
