Regional Assembly and Launching of Institute of Computer Engineers of the Philippines (ICpEP) Region 8 Chapter


The Institute of Computer Engineers of the Philippines (ICpEP) is the sole organization dedicated to computer engineers in the Philippines. It is a professional organization committed to empower the interests, welfare, and ideals of computer engineering professionals and students through development of a strong and harmonious foundation and professionalizing computing skills for global competitiveness and national progression.

The institute was formally organized in 2008 with 11 universities and colleges in Manila as its initial member institution. In the ensuing years they expanded their membership to 52 universities from all over the country and 5 regional chapters. This time around, the national organization is looking at establishing the Regional 8 Chapter which shall be hosted by Eastern Samar State University on Feb. 19-20, 2015.

The activity will bring together CpE practitioners, professionals and students in the region and to elect the first chapter officers for Region 8. This is an excellent opportunity to establish new professional collaboration and to share knowledge and results in theory and applications of computer engineering technology.

The hosting of the event will also boost the professional ego of the computer engineering community of the university and at the same time promote the university to the most challenging eyes of the IT community.

A registration fee will be collected in the amount of 2,200 for professionals, 1,700 for students from schools in region 8 and 1,200 for ESSU students inclusive of membership fee and meals for 2 days.
