IEEE ComSoc School Series


Ask Us Anything:


This event is an open house of IEEE Communications Society Bangalore to answer “Ask Us Anything” by attendees. As the second wave of the COVID-19 has been causing enormous distress to everyone, the session will start with a presentation by Rags Raghavendra Prasad T S, the founder of the Project StepOne who is providing frontline support during this pandemic through Telemedicine, emotional support, and general information sharing.

This will be followed by an open panel session to take specific questions from the participants. The lockdown and work/college from home have caused challenges over multiple dimensions – professional growth, job loss, cancellation of exams, cancellation of offered jobs, an uncertain outlook for higher studies, and so on. The panel will have representation from Academia and Industry to address questions related to professional, emotional, and personal challenges that one may need help for.
