Goals / Focus of the Local Chapter
History of the Local Chapter
Traditional Events / Schedules / Formats
Events have traditionally been in the form of lecture style presentation or a tour of a company or facility. Speakers have been drawn primarily from Distinguished Lecturer organised through the Eastern Area or a visiting professor and also from local companies and organizations. Events usually begin at 5:30pm so as to not overlap with classes running at the local universities and to catch most industry members immediately following working hours.
Historical Leanings / What Works Well
CS society provide lists of distinguished lecturers in different areas relevant to the chapters. Usually we can invite from these lists worldwide renowned professors and chief scientist in leading companies that are specialized in topics relevant to our members.
After the DL expresses his interest to visit our chapter for lecture, we send the lecture proposal to the DL program general Chair for approval. After receiving the approval we publicize this lecture in Atlantic Canada website. Also to get more engagement from our IEEE students’ members we publicize this lecture internally in universities.
