Both conferences will be held at the Hilton Tulsa Southern Hills,
7902 S. Lewis Ave, Tulsa, OK.

The IEEE Green Technologies Conference aims to bring together scientists,
researchers and practitioners from the industry around the world to
develop realistic solutions to address the current energy crisis and to
reduce carbon emissions and greenhouse gases. It provides a platform for
interdisciplinary interaction among scientists, engineers, faculty
and students.

After an informal reception on Friday, April 20, the Region 5 Committee
will meet Saturday, April 21 to conduct the business of the region and
provide training to current and future IEEE volunteer leaders. The
business meeting will be held at the Hilton, and the student competitions
will be held at Oral Roberts University, across the street.

The eagerly awaited Student Robotics Competition will feature mobile
robots designed by teams of students from universities throughout
Region 5. The robots must maneuver around an 8' x 8' playing field, find
energy sources, and harvest energy in several different forms.  The
Student Paper Contest provides a platform for students to submit and
publish technical research papers for peer review.  The Student Ethics
Contest challenges the students had helps them understand the boundaries
of ethics in the engineering profession. Student Teams in the Circuit
Design Contest exercise their intellectual prowess to design a solution
to a realistic problem.  The Oral Roberts University student branch will
be hosting a Student Professional Awareness Conference on Friday evening,
April 20, and Student Branch Officer Training on Saturday.

The Region 5 Conference Committee will meet on Sunday morning April 22 to
discuss 2012 lessons learned, receive progress report on 2013 Denver
activities and review bids on 2014 Texas conference sites.

the Mecca for arts in Oklahoma. Art deco masterpieces are prevalent in
many of our downtown buildings and churches. Spectacular works of art dot
the trails of our beautiful River Parks. From the Tulsa Ballet and Tulsa
Opera, to Broadway plays and musicals at the Performing Arts Center, to
