Volume 5, Number 4 | 4th Quarter 2016
Dear IEEE Member,

Happy fall! Here is your 4th 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.

With IEEE hosting about 1500-1600 conferences each year, it may be difficult to find the right conference for your participation. The IEEE website has a search engine for all conferences that are registered with the IEEE at: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/index.html?WT.mc_id=mm_conf_2

The Search Conferences block on the left side of the page 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.

I often get emails asking why one of your favorite conferences is not in our calendar. As noted above, IEEE technically or financially co-sponsors more than 1,500 events each year. Our calendar only includes those conferences or events that IEEE-USA co-sponsors. 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.

Since our next issue will cover 2017 -- let me be the first to wish you a Happy New Year!

Best regards,

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