IEEE Sister Societies

There are several Societies within the IEEE that have overlapping areas of interest with the PELS.  Follow the links below to learn more about these Societies and their upcoming events. 


The field of interest of the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) is the study and application of dielectric phenomena and behavior and the development, characterization, and application of all gaseous, liquid, and solid electrical insulating materials and systems utilized in electrical and electronic equipment.  The DEIS is also involved in the creation of voluntary engineering standards and the recommended practices related thereto.


If your engineering interests are the needs of the industrial or commercial sector, the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) will be a valuable professional connection.  One of the largest special interest societies within IEEE, the IAS focuses specifically on the unique needs of industry and commerce.  The IAS is a source of professional power to its nearly 10,000 worldwide members.  Through a network of over 100 chapters globally, regional events, and national and international conferences, the IAS keeps members abreast of current developments around technology in electricity and electronics.  The IAS enriches both its members and the industry through the sharing of specific industry-related solutions.


The IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) through its members encompasses a diverse range of technical activities devoted to the application of electronics and electrical sciences for the enhancement of industrial and manufacturing processes.  These technical activities address the latest developments in intelligent and computer control systems, robotics, factory communications and automation, flexible manufacturing, data acquisition and signal processing, vision systems, and power electronics.  The IES continually updates its program of technical activities to meet the needs of modern industry.


The IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) is a worldwide, non-profit association of over 28,000 individuals engaged in the electric power energy industry.  Its mission is to be the leading provider of scientific information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society and the preferred professional development source for its members.  The scope of the PES embraces research, development, planning, design, construction, maintenance, installation, and operation of equipment, structures, materials, and power systems for the safe, sustainable, economic, and reliable conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage, and usage of electric energy, including its measurement and control.
