Certificates of insurance that are required by the conference venue are available upon request. They must be prepared by IEEE’s insurance broker and should be requested 30-60 days in advance of the conference.
Thefts must first be reported to hotel/venue security and local authorities. IEEE is required to provide prompt notice to its insurance company of any possible insurance claim.
