Chair’s Message, Sept 2021

Greetings again and I hope everyone had a pleasant and healthy summer, given the nature of things now. Despite the Delta variant being at large, the Section has slowly been getting back to normal. Although no in-person events are imminent, the planning continues for events in November and beyond. For instance, due to the efforts of Mort Hans and the Rocky Point History Committee, there will be a ceremony commemorating the November, 1921 inauguration of the RCA Radio Central site as an IEEE Milestone. For more on this, see the article in this issue.

The IEEE Long Island Awards Banquet has been rescheduled yet again for March 31, 2022. By then, this will all be behind us, one hopes. Coming up shortly September 13-17 is the 2021 IEEE SPS Seasonal School on Signal Processing and Communication Systems for 5G. Dr. Jessica Donaldson has put in a fine effort as one of the organizers bringing this international conference together.

Please keep up with the calendar for other upcoming events; schedules change rapidly in these times. Everyone please remain healthy and well as we enter the last stages of a difficult time.

Arnold Stillman
IEEE Long Island Section Chair, 2021
