Industry Applications Society Workshop

To Hamilton Members of IAS:

IEEE Hamilton Section does not have a chapter of the Industry Applications Society (IAS). (Only seven of the 21 Sections in Canada have IAS chapters.)
There is a 2-day workshop in early December in Toronto that is open to everyone, offering one night in hotel and travel expenses.

I received the following information from the chair of the organizing committee. I didn't see a distribution list, so I am forwarding in case you might be interested.

Hi IEEE Member, 
IEEE IAS is organizing the IEEE IAS Chapters Workshop in Region 7 where IEEE IAS Chairs and members will get together and discuss ideas, experiences and collaborate to have effective IEEE IAS future activities. Also, new IEEE IAS members or chapter chairs will get a chance to network with IEEE IAS’s experienced volunteers. In addition, participants will get a chance to attend WIE, YP and Humanitarian discussions on multi-facet topics.
The workshop will be taking place in Toronto from 9-10 December, 2022. It will be hosted by joint cooperation of IAS Chapter and Membership Development (CMD) and the IAS South Saskatchewan Section Chapter.
IAS CMD will provide partial travel support ($550 USD) and one night's accommodation to attend the workshop. 
Please apply for the travel support using the link below.
The deadline to apply for the travel grant program is 24th November, 2022. The selected candidates will be notified by 25th November, 2022. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and thank you.
