EMBS Seminar Follow-up


Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and the IEEE Baltimore Section thank Dr. Jin-Oh Hahn for his 20 Oct presention on the recent advances in blood pressure monitoring technologies.  He graciously permitted us to post the slides from his talk.  Please take a moment to review the great information that was presented at this seminar.

Brain-2-Computer-Interface Competition 2020 (Postponed Indefinitely)

Baltimore Section sadly reports that due to the closure of the UMBC campus and subsequent cancellation of the Region 2 2020 Student Activity Conference (SAC2020), we will not be holding the B2CI competition on its originally scheduled date.  At this time we have no reschedule date, but as more information becomes available we will post it here.

Baltimore Section members participated in the annual Maryland STEM Career Fair for Girls at Bryn Mawr school in Baltimore on October 12, 2019.  This free event provides high school girls with the opportunity to meet and learn from successful women in a wide variety of STEM careers and also gives educators a chance to network and collaborate on future STEM ventures.  See some of the pictures from this event.

Our section is pleased to offer the following upcoming events.
