Control Systems Society: 2019 Technical Planning Meeting


Registration Required, this is a secure facility.  Maximum room space is 20 people.

On July 24th, we are going to try something different. We are hosting a downtown, lunchtime IEEE meeting. July’s meeting will be sponsored by Houston section IEEE Control Systems Society Chairman Dr. Chang Duan and Vincent Palughi Houston Section News and Publicity Team. The July meeting will be held at the 1400 Smith Building (The Chevron Building, cross street Andrews) from 11:15 to 12:30. This meeting will be open to all, but as the space is limited to 20 people, and in a secure area, we will need to follow some visitor management guidelines for entry. All non-Chevron IEEE meeting participants will need to follow these guidelines:

After registering, please email Vincent Palughi  your first and last name, and employer (or just say student). Vincent will enter your details into the Chevron visitor management system. After checking in to the security desk, a temporary badge will be provided, to allow entry. Use the visitor badge to enter the first set of elevator banks. The meeting is on the 18th floor. At the 18th floor elevator lobby, an IEEE member will let you in and escort you to the meeting room 18064. Visitor badges can be dropped off in a box, after you leave the building. We will provide a simple lunch for the nominal entry fee of $7.50. There is metered parking on Smith Street.

We hope to encourage a rotating monthly meeting, at various IEEE employers’ locations in the downtown area to supplement the regular IEEE meetings, expose IEEE members who work downtown to various IEEE societies, and to create networking opportunities.
