Proceedings of the IEEE celebrated its centennial year of publication during 2012. Many exciting features and events marked this occasion. This was an important celebratory moment not only for the journal but also for all IEEE members, since 2012 also commemorated the centennial of the founding of the Institute of Radio Engineers, which helped to create the current international perspective of today's IEEE.
A Centennial Special Issue was published in May 2012, in honor of the founding and election of officers of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE), a predecessor of engineering societies, on 13 May 1912.
The Centennial Special Issue is currently being made available to all interested readers as an open access document in HTML format on Xplore so that the wider IEEE and engineering communities have an opportunity to sample some of the diverse topics routinely covered in the journal.
The Proceedings of the IEEE organized a Future Technology Prediction Competition. The competition entry period is over and the contest is closed to all new submissions.
Beginning in January 2011 and concluding with the December 2012 issue, the Proceedings Editorial Office posted classic papers each month on the Proceedings Web pages by some of the luminaries of the past, along with special introductions when possible. Enjoy these glimpses into the Proceedings of IEEE’s past.
