IEEE organizational units (OUs) can provide sponsorship to conferences by contributing in the conference’s technical program and sometimes through financial investment.
Conference sponsors are the organizations responsible for the financial, technical, publicity, and administrative running of the conference.
At least one sponsor of an IEEE conference must be an IEEE organizational unit or an IEEE society, region, section, chapter, council, or committee. Not-for-profit, non-IEEE entities (association, society, university, etc.) may also serve as sponsors of IEEE conferences.
Most successful conferences are based on the strong cooperation of more than one IEEE organizational unit, such as technical/professional and geographic units. The earlier these units are involved in the conference, the better. These arrangements must be made before the selection of the conference location.
When considering conference sponsorship, be sure to review and follow all regulations provided in IEEE Policies Section 10 – Meetings, Conferences, Symposia and Expositions.
