IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.
IEEE membership offers access to technical innovation, cutting-edge information, networking opportunities, and exclusive member benefits. Members support IEEE's mission to advance technology for humanity and the profession, while memberships build a platform to introduce careers in technology to students around the world.
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.
IEEE is dedicated to keeping its members, authors and mission safe from the effects of piracy. Piracy of IEEE Intellectual Property (IP) not only hurts IEEE as an organization, but it can also hurt the IEEE member, subscriber and author.
Pirated IEEE literature is vulnerable to alterations and edits out of the control of IEEE and its authors. This falsified information can cost researchers time and money, affecting the reputation of researchers, organizations and IEEE, who are all expecting the information to be accurate and trustworthy. IP misuse also affects IEEE and its mission of fostering technological advancement for the benefit of humanity. Members are the core of IEEE and the organization depends on them to represent its code of ethics. IP misuse goes against these standards. On the same token, IEEE members depend on IEEE for support in their personal and professional growth. IP misuse can affect the financial stability of IEEE, causing an adverse effect on the organization?s ability to uphold its mission. For these reasons, IEEE monitors the various forms of IP abuse. IEEE staff members track usage reporting and use real-time monitoring tools to detect excessive usage or sharing of IEEE accounts. When cases of possible misuse surface, the individual is notified and is expected to take measures to ensure IEEE IP is being protected. In cases of extreme IP misuse, access may be blocked or suspended indefinitely.
