Introducing IEEE DataPort - A Valuable New Data Repository Now Available to IEEE Members!

IEEE DataPort

IEEE is pleased to introduce a new IEEE data repository service called IEEE DataPort (  We listened to our TAB Society members over the past few years who recognized the growing needs for dataset storage and the importance of being able to access datasets to support research and technology advancement.  After gathering input from IEEE members and performing further research, IEEE DataPort was developed and is now LIVE and ready for use by all society members.

IEEE DataPort provides many benefits to IEEE society members beyond what other data repository services can offer.  To learn more about the valuable capabilities of IEEE DataPort and the key differentiators that set IEEE DataPort apart from other data repositories, go to  

IEEE DataPort is ramping up quickly with new users and new datasets.  Go to the IEEE DataPort site ( and view the valuable capabilities it offers.

Three valuable services are offered to you:

1.  Uploading Datasets:  IEEE DataPort offers any logged in user the ability to upload a standard dataset up to 2TB at no cost ('standard' simply means the dataset does not have Open Access requirements).   Get a persistent Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for your dataset and ensure that it will be accessible long-term.  In addition, for a limited time, we are offering coupon OpenAccess1 if you need to upload an Open Access dataset and make it available to the public.

2.  Access Datasets:  Any user can view the metadata for all of the IEEE DataPort datasets and, for a limited time, we are offering you the opportunity to become an IEEE DataPort Subscriber at no cost which will give you direct access to all of the IEEE DataPort dataset files (use coupon code Dataport1).  Dataset files can be downloaded or accessed directly in Amazon Web Services S3 storage. 

3.  Host a Data Competition:  Any IEEE Society member can host a Data Competition on IEEE DataPort and for a limited time this capability is available at no cost.  The site enables efficient management of the competition (establish time period, manage users, etc.) and the ability to have participants submit analysis results directly into IEEE DataPort for easy assessment and review. 

We welcome your usage of IEEE DataPort and believe that IEEE DataPort will be a valuable data repository that will meet your needs and the needs of all society members now and into the future.  We welcome your feedback.  If you have any questions or would like more information or a demonstration of IEEE DataPort, please contact Melissa Handa at
