Needs major source work[edit]

I just tagged the article as it seems NPOV and a quick count reveals that 21 of 25 references are the IEEE's own website. Krushia (talk) 22:01, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

An important IEEE Award was left out[edit]

And it was established in 1972 -- nothing news! The IEEE Claude E. Shannon Award . (talk) 20:19, 2 September 2012 (UTC)


This article lacks criticism section. There is an opinion what such kind of institutions in the fact hinders the technological innovations and provides the grounds for establishing of reactionary groups like infamous Phoebus cartel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:59, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

The trouble is the founder of Wikipedia said he wanted "peer reviewed material". I published widely in the IEEE including a 20pp article in 1967. There then followed fifty years of total rejection about my work or by me by the IEEE. Recently three Italians from the same Department in Florence University, in their roles as IEEE editor and also authors, in pursuit of "publish or perish" - having 50 or 100 peer reviewed articles to their names, published peer reviewed defamatory material about me, that I was "outside of academia and structured research". (I have been invited to lecture at 9 universities. There were government funded research projects on my inventions at three universities which I supervised.) So the founder wants peer reviewed material on my early work, then nothing on the next 50 more advanced years of my work, then finally peer reviewed defamation of me. So much for the system of peer review, for instance as practised by the IEEE. Ivor Catt. 17 June 2016. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:45, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Security breach[edit]

IEEE has been recently in the news [1] for the leaked username and passwords in plaintext of around 100,000 members. The leak was confirmed by IEEE [2] and they notified members, and instructed them to change their passwords [3]. All details of the breach can be read at the page of Radu Dragusin, the person who uncovered the breach [4]. Sine I am that person, I would ask if any of you could write about the breach, since I think I am not entitled to, since I am the primary source. Radu Dragusin (talk) 16:28, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Registration Price[edit]

IEEE is a leading conferences organizer in Engineering & Technology. Their Revenue is reported but registration fee is not properly mentioned. This info is essential Dentking07 (talk) 12:25, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

IEEE Conferences[edit]

I would like to create separate article with different sections for "IEEE Conferences" as it is popular in academic/scientific community. References [5], [6] [7] etc. Dentking07 (talk) 12:59, 21 October 2015 (UTC) as there is no reply, I am proceeding with article creation Dentking07 (talk) 13:59, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

As the IEEE Conferences article has been kept speedy deletion by experiences editors I am keeping conferences section in parent article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dentking07 (talkcontribs) 19:01, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

IEEE pronunciation[edit]

The pronunciation for IEEE should be included in the article somewhere. (talk) 05:08, 22 November 2015 (UTC)


FYI, I have blanked and redirected IEEE Turkey to Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. L235 (t / c / ping in reply) 01:24, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

IEEE Maxwell Award[edit]

The IEEE Maxwell Award should be added to this article, but I am uncertain where it should be. --DThomsen8 (talk) 03:45, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

List of IEEE awards[edit]

Support split - The "Awards" section of IEEE is long, and should be split to a new article entitled List of IEEE awards. --Jax 0677 (talk) 18:35, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Agreed. Split the article. Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 03:04, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Agreed. Split the article. Risk Engineer (talk) 16:12, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Would that list then satisfy notability? Every professional association hands out buckets of awards to its members, it's part of the way to distinguish elite "us" from vile unwashed "them". But few of these awards are notable outside their own tiny, tiny, teapots. I've never seen a newspaper or (non-IEEE) magazine list someone's IEEE awards. Is a list of awards notable? --Wtshymanski (talk) 17:22, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
