Please join us for this year IEEE Montréal Keynote Event. 

Prof. Yolande E. Chan is going to talk about the use of SMAC (social media, mobile technologies, analytics and cloud computing) to advance communities in crisis (e.g., in response to poverty or natural disasters) and resource-constrained businesses (e.g., startups). She will also describe her journey from a focus on engineering to business (i.e., designing technology to using and managing technology).
