The New Orleans Chapter of the IEEE Computer Society is an eclectic group of individuals – engineers, nerds, geeks, mad scientists (did we miss anyone?) Meetings are of a technical nature with topics ranging from artificial intelligence to best coding practices. Most meetings qualify for one Professional Development Hour (PDH) as defined by the Louisiana Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors.
You do not have to be a member of the IEEE Computer Society to attend meetings.
Some example meeting topics include: algorithms, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, computer engineering, cybersecurity, distributed computing, internet architecture, internet of things, history and trends in computing, machine learning and datamining, mathematics (discrete logic and graph theory), programming, robotics, software engineering, and virtualization.
Let us know if you are interested in a particular topic or if you'd like to contribute to a talk.
With nearly 85,000 members, the Computer Society is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the largest of the 39 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (http://www.ieee.org/) (IEEE), the CS is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computer and information-processing technology.
The CS serves the information and career-development needs of today's computing researchers and practitioners with technical journals, magazines, conferences, books, conference publications, and online courses. Its Certified Software Development Professional (http://www2.computer.org/portal/web/certification/swebok) (CSDP) program for mid-career professionals and Certified Software Development Associate (CSDA) credential for recent college graduates confirm the skill and knowledge of those working in the field. Known worldwide for its computer-standards activities, the CS promotes an active exchange of ideas and technological innovation among its members.
