October 2020 Newsletter
Welcome to the IEEE Long Island Section October 2020 e-Newsletter.
We will be publishing this e-newsletter periodically to try to keep our membership informed. If you have any comments and/or suggestions, please reply back to us. Thanks.
In these unusual times it would be nice if we could all indulge in some learning as we deal with reduced or missing work hours.
Below are some links to free Webinars and Publications on a very wide range of highly interesting topics. Enjoy!
