History of the society[edit]

  • February 21, 1951 - First meeting of the IRE Industrial Electronics Group
  • May 8, 1951 - Name change to IRE Professional Group on Industrial Electronics (PG-IE)
  • August 1953 - Published the first volume of the Transactions on Professional Group on Industrial Electronics
  • August 21, 1963 - IRE merged with AIEE and become IEEE. The PG-IE approved the merger of IRE's PG-IE and AIEE's group on control instrumentation (GCI)
  • August 22, 1963 - The merger of the PG-IE and the GCI into Professional Group on Industrial Electronics and Control Instrumentation (PG-IECI) was approved by the IEEE Executive Committee
  • October 14, 1964 - Name change to Group on Industrial Electronics and Control Instrumentation (PG-IECI)
  • Year 1975 - First IECON was held in Philadelphia. Until then there had been only a sponsored session at the Industry Applications Society Conference
  • March 20, 1978 - Name change to Industrial Electronics and Control Instrumentation Society (IECIS)
  • June, 1982 - Name change to Industrial Electronics Society[3][4]
