The purpose of the IEEE Public Visibility Initiative is to increase awareness, understanding, and appreciation of how engineering, computing, and technology benefit humanity, and to promote the visibility of engineering, computing, and IEEE technical professionals who carry out this work.

An integral part of the program is globally positioning IEEE members to the media as technical experts (TEs), where they serve as spokespeople and can share their technical expertise and insight on technology topics.

Below is some information about becoming a technical expert and participating in the IEEE Public Visibility Initiative.  

How do I apply to be a technical expert?

If you are interested in becoming a technical expert and participating in the program, fill out a Technical Expert submission form. You will then be contacted to discuss your background and expertise to determine how you might help contribute to the program.

What does a technical expert do?

TEs help support numerous campaigns and initiatives:

•    Provide commentary on breaking news to share with media
•    Participate in Impact Theme–related media interviews (phone, in-person, and written commentary)
•    Feature thought leadership in videos
•    Attend IEEE and other industry events

What is IEEE Transmitter and how can I contribute?

IEEE Transmitter is a collection of articles, videos, infographics, and more, all curated by IEEE. It helps to promote IEEE Public Visibility activities while giving the audience technology news from an IEEE perspective. It also includes coverage from top global conferences and events.
