The IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) is a Society of the IEEE.

Vision Statement[edit]

The Industrial Electronics Society 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 Society continually updates its program of technical activities to meet the needs of modern industry.

The vision of the IES is to advance global prosperity by fostering technological innovation, enabling members' careers and promoting community worldwide. The IES promotes the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro- and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.[1]





The Society organizes several international conferences every year[2] such as:

and many more international and national events. See also IES Conference Calendar.
