IEEE NSW Section Conference Sponsorship
The NSW Section will accept requests for financial and technical co-sponsorship via the following form: NSW Conference Sponsorship v1_1
Only applications made with the most up to date form will be accepted.
Requests are to be submitted to the NSW Section Secretary and copied to the NSW Section Chair. Requests will be reviewed at the Section meetings that occur on the first Monday of each month between February and November. Requests should be submitted at least one week before the scheduled meeting date. It is expected that a representative will attend the section meeting to discuss the proposal.
The NSW Section aims to sponsor conferences with a proven history of delivering high quality experiences and technical papers (if applicable). In principle the NSW Section will only sponsor conferences within the state of NSW. Conferences outside NSW can be sponsored if approval is provided by the local section. The support from the relevant NSW Technical Chapter or Affinity Group Chair must be obtained.
The term “IEEE” in the names of conferences applies where IEEE is at least a 50% financial sponsor (in total for all IEEE co-sponsors). The use of the term “IEEE” in the names of co-sponsored conferences in which IEEE is less than a 50% but at least a 25% financial sponsor (in total for all IEEE co-sponsors) is recommended but not required. The term “IEEE” shall not be used in the names of co-sponsored conferences in which IEEE is less than a 25% financial sponsor (in total for all IEEE co-sponsors). This includes conferences in which IEEE is only a technical co-sponsor or is not a sponsor in any form.
