IEEE Central Texas Section SWOT Analysis l Strengths l Good technical talks, DL program. l Stable attendance rate. l So far one workshop per year in last three years and one planned for this year. l Good leadership pipeline. l Stable funding resource from CAS and SSC Society. l Extra subsidy funding from CAS and SSC for workshop or extra events to promote memberships. l Weaknesses l Find more good technical talks and workshop topics. l Increase attendance rate.
IEEE Central Texas Section SWOT Analysis l Opportunities l Local chip design and EDA companies l University of Texas, Austin l Threats l Seminars inside companies and Universities l A less interesting workshop may get cancelled or need more funding.
IEEE Central Texas Section Chapter Plans / Issues l Continue ISSCC annual review. l Invite Distinguished Lecture Program speakers. l Four Technical seminars on the Calendar so far and two are pending. l March 8 Workshop: IEEE CTS CAS/SSC Workshop: Texas Workshop on Integrated System Exploration (TexasWISE) l http://texaswise.tamu.edu l Speakers from Stanford, MIT, Rice, and UT Dallas l Free registration and food. Cap at 150 people. l Please take one CFP and Call-for-poster flyer (for students)
