About IEEE

The IEEE  is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE's highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

IEEE creates an environment where members collaborate on world‐changing technologies – from computing and sustainable energy systems, to aerospace, communications, robotics, healthcare, and more. The strategic plan of IEEE is driven by an envisioned future that realizes the full potential of the role IEEE plays in advancing technology for humanity. The IEEE Brand Identity Toolkit explains the basic usage rules for all corporate identity elements and how to utilize them to create a powerful and consistent communications pieces.

IEEE is led by a diverse body of elected and appointed volunteer members. The governance structure includes boards for operational areas as well as bodies representing members in the 45 Societies and technical Councils and ten worldwide geographic regions.

For over a century, the IEEE has sponsored various programs to honor achievements in education, industry, research, and service. These awards and recognitions each have a unique mission and criteria, and offer the opportunity to praise distinguished colleagues, dedicated teachers, and corporate leaders who have made a lasting impact on humanity, technology, and the profession.

Vision Statement: IEEE will be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere, and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions.

Mission Statement: IEEE's core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.

ELECTRON DEVICES SOCIETY

About EDS:

The IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) is one of the technical societies & councils that you can join as an IEEE member.

EDS began in 1952 as a committee of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). With the merger in 1963 of the IRE and the American Institute of Radio Engineers, EDS became a technical group under the newly formed IEEE. In 1976, EDS became a society of IEEE.

To respond to the more complex society structure and increased business activities, the Society established an Executive Office in 1990.

The field of interest for EDS is all aspects of engineering, physics, theory, experiment and simulation of electron and ion devices involving insulators, metals, organic materials, plasmas, semiconductors, quantum-effect materials, vacuum, and emerging materials. Specific applications of these devices include bioelectronics, biomedical, computation, communications, displays, electro and micro mechanics, imaging, micro actuators, optical, photovoltaics, power, sensors and signal processing.

The society is concerned with research, development, design and manufacture related to the materials, processing, technology, and applications of such devices, and scientific, technical, educational and other activities that contribute to the advancement of this field.
