The new initiative IEEE Region 8 News Digital calls for contributors


CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS

It has been noticed that great work that is being done around IEEE Region 8 in all Sections, Societies and Affinity Groups, stays mostly local since there is a lack of sharing this information around the IEEE Region 8 Members. At the same time very interesting news Regarding IEEE, Global technological breakthroughs and initiatives are not shared widely to our members. Aiming in decreasing this, a new initiative called “IEEE Region 8 News Digital” has been created.  It is a portal focused on IEEE Region 8 and Tech content, coming directly by IEEE Region 8 members.
