Building a Quality Technical Program

You have agreed to manage your conference’s technical program, now what?

  • Where do you begin?
  • How will you coordinate your committee, manage all of your paper submissions, and create the final publication?
  • Will you meet the IEEE publication requirements for a sponsored conference?


MCE’s Technical Program Management service is designed to assist you in managing the entire scope of your technical program.

What our organizers are saying

From Committee support, to paper submission, to publishing in IEEE Xplore®, we know what it takes to support the creation of a successful technical program. We have 20+ years’ of experience handling the unique needs of many types of engineering programs.


The staff provide invaluable insight…

They help on numerous fronts. They help spot talent within the conference – who is really keen to volunteer and contribute.

Working with the MCE/TPM team was a great experience!

Along the way there were many challenges that included a rapid timely ramp up of a new conference with a unique technical program format, diverse topics and global participation. The IEEE Photonics technical program management (TPM) team worked tirelessly with everyone involved with the conference at every step to ensure that all the technical programming and scheduling of events was professional and on-time making the event a great success that exceeded all our expectations.

Enhances my volunteer experience…

They also provide significant wisdom as they serve as the memory in the system from which we can draw wisdom and good practice.
