New Opportunities to Learn and Network in Ottawa Canada this August

“Leading our Global Technical Community” is the theme of the 2020 IEEE Sections Congress, which is scheduled to take place from 21 to 23 August in Ottawa Canada. The congress, held every three years, is sponsored by the IEEE Member and Geographic Activities Board. 


IEEE Sections Congress is the triennial flagship event hosted by IEEE that brings together influencers and leaders from our 430,000 members spanning 165 countries, including technical professionals, corporate and academic leaders, key contributors and entrepreneurs to learn about IEEE products and programs.


After participating in Sections Congress, volunteers can apply what they’ve learned by introducing new programs and initiatives within their local communities.


The three-day event will offer a program designed to help delegates navigate and create a personalized schedule to meet their needs. There are over 40 breakout sessions, interactive ignite and panel sessions- with the option to select between overview and in-depth sessions. Overview sessions, offer general concepts at an introductory level and in-depth sessions offer expert details for attendees familiar with a topic.

Topics will fall within one of three tracks:

       Why We Lead - To Advance Technology for the Benefit of Humanity

       Where We Lead - In Fostering Professional Networks and Engaging Technical Communities

       How We Lead - By Developing Organizational Knowledge and Leadership Skills
