IEEE Sections Congress
The IEEE Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Board will partner to host IEEE Sections Congress 2017 (SC2017), August 11 through 13 at the International Convention Centre, Sydney, Australia.
Titled: “Brilliant Minds, Bright Futures,” IEEE Sections Congress 2017 convenes every three years and gathers IEEE leadership to network, train and mentor with peers or Section leaders to develop recommendations and strategies that guide the future of IEEE.
IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology. The organization is a world-renowned thought leader and voice in engineering, computing and technology information for the global market. With an active portfolio of nearly 1,300 standards and projects under development, IEEE is a leading creator of industry standards covering a range of technologies that drive the functionality, capabilities and interoperability of products and services. IEEE is organized into local Sections within geographic regions and also includes Societies, Chapters, Student Branches and Affinity Groups.
A primary delegate to the gathering is a member designated by the Section Executive Committee to represent the Section at Sections Congress. It is the opportunity for IEEE representatives from all over the world to participate in an event that provides them with the tools and training to assist their unit in focusing their activities on benefits to members while increasing participation in IEEE activities.
Attendees of IEEE Sections Congress 2017 come from more than 165 countries to hear dozens of speakers and attend vital networking sessions on technology, standards, product safety, regulatory engineering, certification and compliance. Some 50 exhibitors are currently registered for the event.
