If you have ideas on what the SAC could provide to members at conferences or in general to help students with networking, making connections, getting access to resources and information, please let us know. Suggestions can be anonymous, but we'd prefer contact into so we can follow up on your idea. Let us know why a particular program would be helpful, how you’d envision implementing it. Please be specific!!want to help with an idea? leave us your contact information, or e-mail ras_@ieee.org

subject-specific journal clubs for studentsStudent researchers may be looking to get feedback on their writing from other students (besides their labmates and advisor!). They also may be looking to connect with students doing closeley related work at other universities.SAC would set up an online forum/discussion board. Students can then post a research area to recruit others with similar interests, then it would be up to the individual students to manage the journal club and set up video meetings.There is already a similar intiative pushed by IEEE on larger level. If interested please let me know I can provide details. Dont wanna fill this sheet with unnecessary data

Organize local outreach at conferencesConferences concentrate awesome exhibits and enthusiastic researchers, would be a great opportunity to show local student groups what work in robotics is likecontact local school groups to invite them to tour exhibits, perhaps organize a panel of student roboticists to talk to high school groupsIt would be really interesting to see this developed. May be task the local chapters, where conf is being held, to organize some kind of project exhibitions for the conference as well. I also want to point out that RAS SAC should see how some of major IEEE project can be integrated in RAS, as that will provide broad support from IEEE (financially as well)

Support and/or contests for RAS student branch chapters at conferences
Local activies of the chapters could benefit from some collaboration between student chapters. This initiative could provide support for student chapters (or chapter chairs alone) to attend ICRA/IROS. Besides attending ICRA/IROS, additional contests for chapters/chairs could be created and take place at the conference.Additionally, by being linked to the major society activites at ICRA/IROS, it could increase the visibility of active student chapters.Support could be given out based on an activity report from local chapters. To defray travel costs, we could limit this to student branches within the same geographic areas as ICRA/IROS.

Project mentorshipThe prime objective of the society is to bring out more and more innovations in robotics. For that, we need to actually work on projects. In a country like India, not all institutes have experts in Robotics, nor is there enough resources to get started. We need to find an efficient solution for this.More interactive online tutorials could help in educating more students about advanced robotics. For resources, substantial discounts for components from online stores like adafruit, sparkfun, element14, etc would be very helpful. This is great thing if RAS SAC do such kind of activities in a place where sufficient knowledge is not obtainable by some students. In this we can deliever some lectures online through net or we can set some expert lecture from other country's professors who working in field of robotics. This not only give perfect direction but also brings more awareness about IEEE in country like INDIA.

Section/Track lunches (or dinners)it's often difficult to meet people/network at the bigger cnference events (like the banquet, cocktail or coffee hours) and there isn't much time between talks. I know conferences in other disciplines organize smaller meals or meetings with sessions and or tracks with the idea that the researchers in the same sessions will have similar research interests and may benefit from a chance to discuss outside of the sessioncould just encourage sections to do this, or organize something more formally like coffee/breakfast/lunch/dinner and resrve a room with boxed lunches or organize some sort of discount to a local restaurantRAS SAC can arrange small meetings but valuable meetings in different countries where great minds come n ordinary students can come and have some get together. For this we can arrange some meals and snacks .. This helps to all kind of people and students. professors and others in getting today's world situation.
8
Awardship To School Children In country like INDIA, some private companies teach a Robotics to school level students and make a students capable of participating in national level events. This students are so talented that they not only challenge graduate students but also win the events. We can give some platform to this students.
9
RAS Technical WebinarsWe stand for Robotics and Automations as a priority. So, in my humble opinion, I think we should hold regular (think monthly) webinars on some of the best technologies available, and get some of the best speakers from all over the globe to speak to students around the world. Motivate them, inspire them and if possible, offer competitions that these students can take advantage of..1. Find out Interests: This can be done via the FB groups, SAC google groups and anyother means of public communication. 2. Focus on 2-3 interests that are most common. 3. Reach out to the best people in these respective fields. We have an extensive network. Let's use them!

IEEE RAS Integrated Network in INDIA http://ewh.ieee.org/r10/india_council/indiacouncil.html http://ieee-link.org/Acoording to the current informations RAS Activities in INDIA is very less compared to other Socities.We need more chapters in INDIA as well as new initiatives.So forming a All India Council of IEEE RAS would be great
12
RAS SAC Hangout In oder to make pre-network before conferences and meeting, some hangouts can be made. It will encourge people who are new to RAS SAC to get involve both online and also come to conferences. To do hangouts we can use Google Hangout.

RAS in UAESo far there is no UAE Section for IEEE RAS, There are many colleges in UAE with Mechatronics/Automation/Robotics courses. Students are showing keen interest on setting up a UAE Section
