Volunteers are gearing up to attend this year's IEEE Sections Congress from 19 to 22 August at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis.
Held every three years, the congress gives IEEE volunteers and leaders of IEEE units such as regions, geographic councils, sections, subsections, chapters, and affinity groups the opportunity to network and learn how to increase member participation in IEEE activities. This year's speakers include 2011 and 2012 IEEE presidents Moshe Kam and Gordon Day; Vint Cerf, Google vice president and chief Internet evangelist; and Sehat Sutardja, chairman of Marvell, a semiconductor manufacturer in Santa Clara, Calif.
Attendees can also witness the IEEE Honors Ceremony on 20 August and visit the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif.
