Proceedings of the IEEE Publishes Special Centennial Issue

May, 2012  IEEE Operations Center, Piscataway N.J.

Proceedings of the IEEE is celebrating its Centennial Year of publication with several special events to be held during 2012. These events include the publication of a special Centennial Issue bearing the cover date of 13 May, in honor of the founding and election of officers of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) on 13 May, 1912. (The IRE and the AIEE were the two predecessor engineering societies that were joined together in 1963 to form the IEEE.)

We are very pleased to announce that the Centennial Issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE is now available to all readers on IEEE Xplore for free as an open access issue. We are making this issue available, so that the wider IEEE and engineering communities can participate in our Centennial celebration and also have an opportunity to sample some of the diverse topics that are routinely covered each month in this journal. Please refer to: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/tocresult.jsp?isnumber=6198296

The Editorial Board of the Proceedings of the IEEE, led by Editor-in-Chief, Robert J. Trew, developed and delivered the special Centennial Issue. A diverse group contributed to this issue, including IEEE President, Gordon W. Day. This project is an example of how important a strong partnership between  dedicated volunteers and professional publishing staff is to the IEEE’s success.

Other events planned for this year include the Proceedings’ sponsored Centennial Engineering Innovation Forum to be held in Washington D.C. on 28 and 29 September. This multidisciplinary forum has been organized with the overarching theme of improving the quality of life through engineering innovation. In addition, we are also sponsoring a Predictions Competition in which we are asking for individuals to provide their ideas on future technological innovations and progress as they envision it. The best entries received, based on the opinion of the Proceeding of the IEEE Editorial Board, will be eligible to be awarded cash honoraria and will be published in the journal.
