What is the Technical Program?
The technical program is a series of presentations delivered at the conference that cover a range of scientific areas directly related to the technical scope of the conference. These presentations are based upon academic papers selected through the paper submission and review process.
Managing Peer Review
The Technical Program Committee is also in charge of managing the paper-review process for the conference.
The courses are accessible at the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE). All courses are offered at no cost but require registration via an IEEE Account. Creating an IEEE Account is fast and simple.
