Information for Organizers

Running an IEEE Conference

IEEE conference organizers are critical to the planning and implementation of high-quality technical conferences each year.  They serve a variety of roles within their conference committee and may hold other positions within their section, chapter, or society.  The success of an IEEE conference depends on the dedication and teamwork of the organizers who volunteer to run the event.

IEEE Convene brings together thought leaders and decision-makers to address conference leadership practices, discuss challenges in the conference landscape, envision the future, and launch new conference initiatives.  This tool has dedicated educational tracks for IEEE conference organizers and conference leadership.  Be inspired by unparalleled learning and insightful, thought-provoking sessions that will provide a real advantage to conference planning and help shape the future of conferences.

If you have questions about IEEE Convene or anything pertaining to IEEE conferences, please contact IEEE Meetings, Conferences, and Events.

Conference Email Marketing to IEEE Members (eNotice for Conferences)

IEEE conference organizers have the opportunity to reach thousands of IEEE members to promote their conference. Complete the e-notice form to request approval from your IEEE financial and technical sponsors, and the IEEE Section or Region where your conference is taking place.

The most successful email campaigns will highlight the benefits of your IEEE event, while also incorporating a clear call to action for the recipients. We recommend submitting at least three emails throughout your conference life cycle including:

  • Call for Paper Announcement
  • Program Announcement
  • Early Registration Deadline Announcement
