As the world's largest technical professional organization, IEEE offers a number of ways to get involved with technical and local communities. These communities are active participants in research and authorship, conferences, and important conversations about today's most relevant technical topics locally and globally.
IEEE sponsors more than 1,800 annual conferences and events worldwide, curating cutting-edge content for all of the technical fields of interest within IEEE. Use the IEEE conference search to find the right conference for you to share and discuss innovation and interact with your community.
With an active portfolio of nearly 1,300 standards and projects under development, IEEE is a leading developer of industry standards in a broad range of technologies that drive the functionality, capabilities, and interoperability of a wide range of products and services, transforming how people live, work, and communicate.
IEEE provides a wide range of quality publications that make the exchange of technical knowledge and information possible among technology professionals. This essential content, categorized below, is delivered through the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.
IEEE offers a wide range of learning and career enhancement opportunities within the engineering sciences, research, and other technology areas. The goal of these programs is to ensure the growth of skill and knowledge among professionals and to foster individual commitment to continuing education among IEEE members, the engineering and scientific community, and the general public.
Quarterly public policy webinars assist European IEEE members in obtaining a better understanding of how the European Union (EU) functions, educate them on which policies are currently discussed between the EU institutions, and help them understand why some EU policies are being prioritized. In particular, through these policy webinars, IEEE members in Europe get thorough insight into how policies are shaped and drafted at the EU level, who the key decision-making institutions are and how they function, how to effectively influence and advocate, and what the key policy priorities are for the EU in the areas of ICT, mobility, health, and energy.
Friday, 28 September 2018, from 16:30 - 17:45 CEST - This third quarterly policy webinar from IEEE focused on what happens after EU policies are adopted in Brussels. It looks in close detail how EU policies are implemented by Member States, what the role is of the EU institutions in overseeing the implementation phase, and how the EU can ensure that Member States, industry and EU citizens abide by the rules. It includes case studies from the -almost- adopted Winter Package of proposed energy policies to illustrate this process.
Wednesday, 6 June 2018, from 15:30 - 16:45 CEST - The second in a series of quarterly public policy webinars from IEEE European Public Policy Committee (EPPC). See a full overview of how EU policy is drafted, negotiated, and adopted by using two case studies. Look into the legislative process of law-making for the Electronic Communications Code and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. These are two EU pieces of legislation on which the EPPC and its Working Groups on Energy and ICT are currently drafting position statements: Spectrum Management and The Role of Smart Buildings, respectively.
Wednesday, 24 January 2018, from 16:00 - 17:30 CET - This first webinar will center around how policy-making works in the EU, an overview of the EU institutions/relevant institutions for technology and innovation, core competencies and key personnel in the Commission, Parliament and committees, as well as the directorates in the Commission, and what's in it for IEEE's European members.
