- To promote the sharing of technical knowledge in computing through the hosting of technical presentations by people knowledgeable in the technical areas concerned.
- To provide a forum (the technical presentations) in which people can network and acquire contacts that will be helpful to them in their careers or studies.
- To provide information on IEEE membership and benefits.
The Chapter holds 3-4 technical presentations per year, one of which may be a presentation by an IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Visitor. These technical presentations are open to the public free of charge and it is not necessary to be an IEEE member or an IEEE Computer Society member to attend. Announcements of presentations are usually made 3-4 weeks prior to the event by email to IEEE members, and by posting on this website. In addition, a receiver list of interested people who are not members of the IEEE Computer Society is kept in order that these people may be reached. Contact the Chapter Chair if you wish to be on this list.
