Baltimore Section Annual Picnic

The Baltimore Section is still considering holding our annual picnic this year, but we need your input as to whether there is interest in holding this year’s event on the usual weekend.  The section is sensitive to the current situation as it relates to COVID-19 concerns and is willing to proceed with the picnic as long as state and local mandates are followed.  This would include wearing masks while socializing and maintaining appropriate distancing guidelines.  Also, local mandates require us to reduce the max capacity of the event.  If you are interested in joining us for the picnic in celebration of IEEE day, please register before 1 Oct so that we can gauge the interest in this event.  The picnic is free to Section members and their families.

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.

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMB) Society Meeting (Postponed until 20 Oct)

Baltimore Section chapter of the EMB Society is pleased to present a talk on the recent advances in blood pressure monitoring technologies.  The live virtual seminar will be held on Tuesday, 20 October at 6:00 p.m., through Webex.  For more information and to register visit the registration site.

Baltimore Section members participated in the annual Maryland STEM Career Fair for Girls at Bryn Mawr school in Baltimore on 12 October.  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.
