News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

December 2015

As a special benefit to IEEE members for the month of November, IEEE-USA E-books will offer “The Best of Today’s Engineer: On Licensure - Volume 1,” compiled by Georgia C. Stelluto. This e-book is a compilation of articles that will help the reader understand why one should pursue licensure, the licensure process, exam development, and how to effectively study for and pass the licensure exams. Available 1 November to 15 December.

Self-employed members with businesses large or small, full-time consultants, and moonlighting practitioners can insure their risk of being sued for errors and omissions through the IEEE-sponsored Professional Liability Insurance Program, which is available to members in Regions 1-7.

Although IEEE Collabratec has been freely available for over six months, the formal launch and marketing began on 21 September. You may have already started to see messaging within IEEE communication vehicles such as Society newsletters, membership emails,, Spectrum advertising, and various online social mediums outside of IEEE.

You may have already had a chance to connect and collaborate with IEEE members and technology professionals on IEEE Collabratec and are aware of its benefits. Below are some highlights:

As part of the IEEE international community, members have access to the IEEE International Insurance Marketplace, where they can research options that will be right for them and their families. At this time, IEEE Member Life Insurance, underwritten by Lloyds of London, is available to IEEE members in more than 60 countries, and many other essential insurance plans are available to members who are living outside their native countries as expatriates.

The IEEE Meetings, Conferences & Events (MCE) Conference Education Program is offering the following upcoming webinar:

The Knowledge to Negotiate: The IEEE Contracting Process

IEEE is proud of its adherence to the highest standards of integrity and responsible, ethical business conduct around the world. It is important that those who act on the organization’s behalf—both IEEE volunteers and employees—support IEEE’s stellar reputation by adhering to the same standards and expectations.

It’s that time of the year, and IEEE members can begin their holiday shopping. Communicate to your members that there are special offers and deals from IEEE’s hardware discount partners to make shopping for computers easy and more affordable during the holiday season.
