IEEE conferences and industry

IEEE offers both curated events and scholarly conferences, providing an opportunity for practicing engineers to learn the latest in new and evolving technologies, collaborate and network with leading experts in the field, and present their own research to peers that is submitted to IEEE for publication.

Curated events blend innovation, creativity, and cutting-edge ways of networking. These events may be based around technology hot topics, or they may include new methodologies incorporated into a more traditional conference.

One of the great benefits of IEEE conferences is that science and solutions can be created on-site through discussion and collaboration.

IEEE sponsors more than 1,800 conferences, attracting over 465,000 attendees from around the globe while publishing over 180,000 conference papers each year. IEEE is highly involved in the technical program development of numerous events including trade events, training workshops, job fairs, and other programs.

Trusted technology research

IEEE Xplore research is used by 27 of the top 30 semiconductor companies, all of the top 10 aerospace companies, nine of the top 10 computer hardware companies, and more. With over 5 million articles, the IEEE Xplore Digital Library delivers leading information and research that defines technology today with top-cited journals, cutting-edge conference proceedings, critical technology standards, and a rapidly growing selection of ebooks, as well as online courses in a wide range of technologies.
