VOL. 6, NUM. 1 | 1st Quarter 2017
Dear IEEE Member,

Happy New Year! We are delighted to provide you with your first quarter IEEE-USA ConferenceBrief newsletter.

We continue to have a great portfolio of IEEE-USA co-sponsored conferences and exhibitions--assembled over the past five years--intended to address diverse areas of policy and professionalism in IEEE's technical fields of interest. Please take a moment to consider making a presentation at, or attending, some of them.

I often get emails asking why one of your favorite conferences is not in our calendar. Our IEEE-USA conference calendar only includes those conferences or events that IEEE-USA co-sponsors or exhibits at. As always, if you know of a conference, seminar, or workshop you think IEEE-USA should consider co-sponsoring; or if you have an idea for a new event--locally or nationally--please don't hesitate to contact me.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at these events!

Best regards,

Charles Rubenstein (c.rubenstein@ieee.org)
Chair, IEEE-USA Conferences Committee

IEEE Conference Database

With more than 1,800 IEEE conferences each year, it may be difficult to find the right conference for your participation. IEEE has a search engine for all conferences that are /registered/ with the IEEE. The "Search Conferences" block on the left can be used to search conference dates, or calls for papers, using keywords. You can even narrow the search down to a particular IEEE Region or country.

Please note that until a conference fills out the ICX Conference registration form, and IEEE approves the organizational units that co-sponsor it, information about the event will NOT appear in the Conference Database.
