ABOUT IEEE

 

IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is an international non-profit organization, created in 1882, which aims to promote and disseminate knowledge of electrical, electronics, computing, industrial engineering, etc. The IEEE was stablished in 1882 in New York, USA, by leading engineers and Steinmetz, Edison, Maxwell, Ampere and belonged to IEEE people like Marconi, Tesla, Maxwell and all the Nobel Prizes associated with this engineering to the IEEE awarded before its merits. IEEE is financed by memberships, selling magazines, CDs, DVDs, etc to the industry and partly by contributions from members. Each member of the IEEE has many benefits such as discounts on conferences, courses, seminars, workshops, books, sometimes absorbing the organization costs.

The IEEE has about 400,000 members and is organized geographically into 10 regions, Region 9 is Latin America. Normally, each country is a section. Large countries such as Brazil and Mexico have more than 5 sections. Some sections are joined to form a Council.

IEEE Chile Section was established in 1962 and is one of the oldest in Latin America. The IEEE Consejo Cono Sur is formed by Sections Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Chile. The idea is to cooperate and to integrate members and serve better the community.

In Chile there are two Sections: IEEE Chile Centro Section and IEEE Chile Sur Section.

Technical part is organized by IEEE Chilean Chapter on Control Systems, IEEE Chilean Chapter on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, IEEE Chilean Chapter on Education, and ACCA:

IEEE Chilean Chapter on Systems, Man and Cybernetics Chair: Gastón Lefranc Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV)
IEEE Chilean Chapter on Control Systems Chair: Gastón Lefranc Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV)
IEEE Chilean Chapter on Education: Leopoldo Pavesi
Chair of IEEE Chile Centro Section: Pedro Aguilera
Chair of IEEE Chile Sur Section: Esteban Pino Universidad de Concepción (UdeC)

IEEE Objectives

  • To promote, support, encourage and disseminate research, development and applications of electrical, electronics, computer, industrial, biomedical engineering; for the humanity benefit. This objective is accomplished through conferences, seminars, workshops, courses, publication of magazines each specialty (they are 62) and recognizing those who contribute to this development.

  • To support engineering education in universities, creating IEEE student branches, organizing student conferences, scholarships, courses etc.

  • To encourage Continuing Education of Engineers to improve their performance as a professional and as a person. This is done through courses in conferences, tutorials, courses, books, CD, DVD, TV and Internet.

IEEE is an international non-profit organization. IEEE is financed by selling magazines, CD, DVD, etc. to the industry and partly by contributions from members. Each member of the IEEE has many benefits such as discounts on conferences, courses, seminars, workshops, books, sometimes at costs that absorbs the organization.

IEEE Chile Centro Section, IEEE Chile Sur Section, and IEEE Consejo Cono Sur are sponsor of IEEE CHILECON 2021 Conference.

IEEE invite you to participate in IEEE Chilean Conference on Electrical, Electronics Engineering, and Informatics and Communication Technologies 2021 IEEE CHILECON 2021.
