We will be doing hands on exercises and if you have your sign-on and a lap top you will be able do some exercises. If you don't bring one we will be projecting the results so you will certainly be able to follow along. We will not have time or resources to help resolve sign-on issues so please work it out with IEEE ahead of time if you do not usually use your IEEE sign on. Also we do not have power cords so please bring a full battery.
