Professional Activities Speaker Program

Many Professional Activities topics (i.e. everything nontechnical contributing to members’ careers) can be covered best by local speakers familiar with the culture, background and experience level of participants. However, for international perspective and to create better links within IEEE, the PA committee is also maintaining a speaker program.

The speakers are all experienced lecturers giving multi-hour workshops. Some workshops even run over several days, according to speaker requirements.

The Speaker Program functions in a similar manner to Distinguished Lecturer programs run by many technical societies at IEEE. A local IEEE group (e.g Section, Student Branch, Young Professionals affinity group etc) may contact the speaker directly to find a suitable time. Local funding (by the IEEE section or sponsors) is necessary, but there is also funding available to cover travel expenses to/from the location.

We are also seeking additional speakers to cover a wider range of topics. See below for the criteria.
