  1. IEEE: A Global Community Arthur Winston 2004 IEEE President February 2004, IEEE Macau Section

  2. IEEE: A Global Community Launching the Macau Section • IEEE Then and Now • Fostering Technological Innovation • Enhancing Careers • Developing A Strong Section

  3. IEEE History • AIEE (1884) • Founded by American industrialists to develop a skilled workforce; prepare standards for U.S. electrical industries • IRE (1912) • Founded by radio electronics pioneers • Did not feel fully at home in electric power-oriented AIEE • Differed from the AIEE - positioned at inception to be global • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (1963) from AIEE & IRE

  4. IEEE Today • World’s largest technical professional society • Over 360,000 members • Nearly 64 ,000 students • Live & work in 174 countries • Holds more than 300 international conferences annually • Publishes over 30% of the world’s literature in our fields • Offers more than 900 active industry standards

  5. More about the IEEE • Grouped into geographic and technical areas reflecting where we live and work • 10 Regions (1-6 are in the US) • 304 local Sections • More than 1,200 Student Branches • 10 Divisions • 42 Societies and Councils • 1384 Chapters

  6. 8 1-6 10 9 The IEEE Regions IEEE Canada 7 IEEE-USA

  7. IEEE Region 10 • 42,807 Higher Grade members • 16,731 Student members • 47 Sections • 244 Chapters • 330 Student Branches • 41 Student Branch Society Chapters Membership Data as of 31 Dec 2003

  8. IEEE Region 10 Membership by GradeDec 2003

  9. IEEE Macau Section • Established November 2003 • 65 Higher Grade members • 22 Student members • 1 Student Branch • University of Macau - Established June 1998

  10. IEEE Macau Section Membership by Grade – Dec 2003

  11. IEEE Fosters Technological Innovation Through its Publications • IEEE produces 30% of the worlds literature in electrical and electronics engineering and computing • Online access through IEEE Xplore® • 123 magazines, journals and transactions • Over 400 conference proceedings • 900 industry standards • More than 1 million articles • 28% of Xplore use is in the Pacific Rim

  12. 1 Million Documents!!! Users downloaded 43.6 million articles in ’03

  13. IEEE Information Drives Hi-Tech Development • A recent study showed the largest percentage of literature referenced by the top 25 patenting organizations is published by IEEE • Outstanding results! • 38% of all references in patents were IEEE • The next closest publisher had only 11% Source: Dr. Anthony Breitzman, CHI Research, Inc., July 2003

  14. New Services Make Research Easier • IEEE Member Digital Library (Jan 2003) Subscribers can download 25 articles/mo. • Google index of IEEE Xplore • CrossRef links to other journals • Online tools make it easier and faster to submit, review and publish papers with IEEE

  15. IEEE Fosters Technological Innovation Through Conferences • 300+ international conferences • 100,000+ attendees overall • Searchable IEEE conference database at www.ieee.org/conferencesearch • First-hand information on the latest developments from leaders in their fields • More than 3,000 annual technical meetings, symposia, and other local events.

  16. 75 IEEE Conferences in Region 106 Locally in Hong Kong • 2004 International Conference on Asian Green Electronics (Jan) • INFOCOM 2004 (Mar) • 2004 IEEE International Conference on Electric Utility Deregulation and Restructuring and Power Technologies (April) • 2004 2nd IEEE/EMBS International Summer School on Medical Devices and Biosensors (June) • 2004 1st IEEE International Conference on Group IV Photonics (Sept ) • 2004 IEEE/WIC International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (Sept)

  17. IEEE Fosters Technological Innovationas a World Leader in Standards Development • Nearly 900 active industry standards • 400 in development • Over 50 published in 2003 • 15,000 volunteers • Newest areas: Wireless LAN/MAN, Batteries, Network Security, Software Engineering, Measuring EMF in Humans, and much more.

  18. IEEE Standards Expand Reach • Geographical portals • Standards Africa™ • Standards/Americas™ • Standards/ Asia ™ • Standards/ Europe™ • IEC agrees to adopt and co-brand IEEE standards • Working with ISO, ITU and others www.standardsasia.net

  19. IEEE Enhances Members’ Careers IEEE is looking at new ways to address a growing demand for continuing education to help members enhance their careers. • IEEE Continuing Education • Web-based courses • Tutorials and short courses in at IEEE conferences and section meetings help meet local needs

  20. Addressing the Global Demand for Continuing Education • Free online seminars on product development, & engineering management • 200 free distance learning courses for IEEE Computer Society members • Online reference guide for instructional design and development • IEEE Educational Activities investigating viability of providing online courses based on conference seminars via IEEE Xplore

  21. Over 77 in operation with 6,000+ users Topics include Power & Energy, Embedded System, Product Safety, Ethernet P Optical Networks, Employment & Career Strategies IEEE governance--SPC;Section/Chapter volunteers Online CommunitiesEnable Global Collaborations Global Section/Chapter Community enhances local progress.

  22. Addressing a Global Concern For Pipeline of Talented Professionals to Enter Technology Fields IEEE Pre-College Initiatives Link Engineers and Educators • Deans Summit – Collaborations between education and engineering deans to better prepare teachers to teach science, math and technology • Pre-College Educator/Engineer Resource Site (PEERS) -- To help improve the pre-college teaching of science math and technology topics • Pre-College Teacher In-Service Program for Sections- 420 teachers have been trained. Online kit has been proposed.

  23. Why are Sections Important? • A Section provides a common local forum for IEEE members to meet and exchange views on technical, educational, scientific, professional or other areas of interest. • Section members share technical, professional and personal interests with others in IEEE's worldwide member community. • Sections help raise awareness and understanding of our profession in local venues.

  24. Sections Provide a Community of Colleagues • Members build a network through local Section, Chapter, Student Branch activities • Develop new skills by taking an active role • Gain management, teamwork and leadership experience • Have opportunities to meet leaders in technical interest areas • Gain recognition for accomplishments and recognize the achievements of others

  25. IEEE: A Global Organization IEEE Macau Section is not alone! • You are one of 304 IEEE Sections Worldwide • IEEE Regional Activities provides support • Ask for help if you need it • Share your ideas and successes so others can learn from you • Stay tuned into the IEEE global community to make a difference locally. BEST OF LUCK!
