The Conferences

The IEEE-USA Annual Meeting provides three days of advanced leadership training to the practicing engineers that make up the IEEE-USA volunteer network. These volunteers organize and execute community service projects, training workshops, technical seminars, career development events, and social networking events in their local communities. The IEEE Milwaukee Section is proud to host the more than 200 engineers from around the United States expected to converge on Milwaukee in May for this advanced leadership training.

Featured Sessions Include:

The Great Lakes Biomedical Conference (GLBC) provides a venue for professionals and students in the biomedical engineering and healthcare technologies fields to come together to discuss cutting edge research and development of clinical tools centered around a central theme. The theme for the 36th GLBC is Biomedical Applications of Additive Manufacturing, as the conference expands from its traditional regional focus to a gathering of researchers, engineers and students from around the country interested in presenting papers, participating in networking and career building activities and attending plenary presentations describing how additive manufacturing (3-D printing) technologies are rapidly transforming clinical approaches and biomedical research.


Milwaukee is a vibrant metropolitan area on the western shore of Lake Michigan. It is the home of 2 million people and major companies such as Harley Davidson, Rockwell Automation, Johnson Controls, Miller Brewing, General Electric Medical Systems, and Northwestern Mutual. Milwaukee is a city of many cultures and is known for more than 50 major festivals and public gatherings held throughout the year. In addition, with major and minor league sports teams, miles of stunning parks along the Lake Michigan shoreline, four distinct seasons, museums with international reputations, and a full-range of performing arts groups including opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre there is something to do in Milwaukee all-year round!
