Dear Colleagues,

IEEE Rochester Section has many great meetings to look forward to in 2020.

This year we will host two Joint Chapter Meetings (JCM) to bring all of the IEEE Societies together for an evening of technical talks, networking, and dinner. Our Vice-Chair, Cristian Linte, is already busy identifying a date and time for the Spring JCM. A second JCM will take place sometime in the fall.

The joint Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) will host the Systems and Technologies for Remote Sensing Applications Through Unmanned Aerial Systems (STRATUS) Conference May 18-20 at the University of Buffalo (

In the fall, you can look forward to the 44th IEEE EDS Activities in Western NY Conference by the Electron Devices and Photonics Societies, and the Western NY Image & Signal Processing Workshop organized by the Signal Processing Society. Our Young Professionals affinity group will join the NextCorps-based Tech Startups group for casual networking over drinks on the second Thursday of each month.

Lastly, one of our goals for 2020 is to increase IEEE Rochester’s Social Media presence and member engagement. We will share more of our upcoming events and activities on our LinkedIn ( and Facebook ( pages while overhauling our website.
