IEEE POCO "Convenes the Conference Community."
The IEEE Panel of Conference Organizers (POCO) is the annual event for leading scholarly conference organizers around the world.
IEEE organizes this event to share resources and ideas with all scientific associations and non-profit conference organizers.
POCO convenes thought leaders and decision makers to address conference leadership practices, discuss challenges in the conference landscape, envision the future, and launch new conference initiatives.
POCO has dedicated educational tracks for IEEE conference organizers and conference leadership. Be inspired by unparalleled learning and thought-provoking and insightful sessions that will provide a real advantage to your conference planning.
POCO attendees represent more than 28 countries on six of the seven continents. If you are an IEEE volunteer involved in conferences, you may apply to attend POCO as a hosted attendee and receive complimentary registration to the event.
Many IEEE organizational units may cover the cost of travel and lodging. Check with yours as soon as possible for this event. Hosted attendance is limited and will be reviewed within two weeks of application submission, so please apply early to secure a spot.
2014 POCO was a successful event. In Singapore, new session formats were trialed and panel sessions took place, comprised of IEEE and industry leaders. If you are interested in content or information on past POCO events, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
