February 21, 2020
Friday

This program outlines an outreach activity that focuses on stimulating interaction among IEEE SMC Society (SMCS) members and prospective members in Mexico City as part of SMCS’ campaign to increase activity and presence in IEEE Region 9. The outreach meeting is an opportunity for SMCS leadership to present the Society, the prospects for future activity in Mexico, and to engage with members to discuss potential for an SMCS Chapter in Mexico City. It is also an opportunity to explore synergies and possible future collaboration with SMIA (Mexican Society for Artificial Intelligence).
