It is a great pleasure to share with you the IEEE Tunisia section newsletters. It provides an excellent opportunity to present news and events related to IEEE, as well as activities carried out by the chapters, affinity groups, student branches, student chapters, and WIE student affinity groups in greater detail.

In this occasion, I take the opportunity to remind you that the IEEE Tunisia Section aims to spread IEEE Activities to all corners of the country by educational and technical activities, human networking, and to develop technology and its applications for humanitarian challenges. Please don’t hesitate to contact your section officers if you need any help.


For volunteers: The IEEE Tunisia section newsletter will be out 3 – 4 times per year, so don’t hesitate to send us your activities report in order to share your successful events with IEEE Tunisia section members.
The deadline for the next issue is February 15, 2017.
