The IEEE Board of Directors looks ahead

7 June 2011

The IEEE Board of Directors established five priorities for 2011 at its February Meeting Series, held in Miami. The priorities are:

  • Establish IEEE's leadership in important technical areas, including smart-grid technology and specific areas within life sciences.
  • Develop a plan to ensure that IEEE is at the forefront of digital publishing technology.
  • Develop a strategy for IEEE conferences that focuses on protecting the quality of IEEE conference proceedings.
  • Collaborate with other associations and publishers, including investigating joint membership agreements and adding their publications to the IEEE Xplore digital library.
  • Create a plan for membership development that focuses on the needs of professionals working in industry and of young professionals in areas of the world where membership is declining.


IEEE membership offers a wide range of benefits and opportunities for those who share a common interest in technology. If you are not already a member, consider joining IEEE and becoming part of a worldwide network of more than 400,000 students and professionals.
