IEEE Celebrates its Two Millionth Article on IEEE Xplore®

16 March – IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional society,  is celebrating the addition of the two millionth article to IEEE Xplore, the world’s largest source of valuable, cutting-edge, research,  standards and educational courses. Providing nearly one-third of the world’s highest quality technical literature in electrical engineering, communications and computer science, the IEEE Xplore digital library is the most trusted source for vital information in technology today.  

The two millionth IEEE Xplore article appears in the March issue of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, one of IEEE’s 142 journals and magazines. The article, “Intelligent Packet Dropping for Optimal Energy-Delay Tradeoffs in Wireless Downlinks,” is written by IEEE Senior Member Michael J. Neely, assistant professor at the Communication Sciences Institute, part of the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Neely’s article discusses how implementing an innovative algorithm into a wireless network can fundamentally change the efficiency of wireless transmitters, which would be beneficial in prolonging battery life without adversely affecting performance. Read the full press release. (PDF, 159 KB)

A celebration commemorating the milestone took place at IEEE Headquarters in Piscataway, N.J., USA on 8 April. Watch the video on
