Engineers and researchers are often faced with the challenge of finding a central location to store, access, or share their research with the larger global technical community. IEEE offers IEEE DataPort™ as a solution to this challenge by providing users a web-based data platform to share and manage their datasets in one trusted location. Uploading datasets on IEEE DataPort™ can generate citations for one’s research, allows users to collaborate with other data owners, and link manuscripts. 

IEEE DataPort™ dataset uploads are currently free for all. Standard datasets will always be free to upload and for a limited time Open Access datasets can be uploaded at no cost using promotional code OPENACCESS1 at checkout. Hosted datasets are accessible worldwide and you can eliminate the tedious process of finding a hosting platform and making additional payments involved with storing the data. Fully integrated with Amazon Web Services (AWS), IEEE DataPort™ offers high value with no cost at this time. To learn more about IEEE DataPort™ and to upload your own dataset, visit ieee-dataport.org.

Access a vast array of educational and society-specific material through the IEEE Resource Centers. Not only do many of the resource centers include such sources as conference slides, webinars, and videos but they also offer the opportunity to receive your educational credits.

As an IEEE Society member, you have access to the Resource Center offered by your society. The Resource Centers consolidate all valuable content such as tutorials, conference videos, and slides in one, single location. Organized by content type, the IEEE Resource Centers are user-friendly and very easy to locate and view.  Almost all materials are available to society members for free and to non-members for a small fee. Visit the IEEE Resource Center page and start exploring how to expand your knowledge base!

IEEE will soon be extending Concur, the new Volunteer Expense Reimbursement Platform, to IEEE Regions!  Concur is already in use by IEEE Major Boards, Committees, Societies and Technical Councils and the feedback has been very positive.

Concur is a cloud-based expense reporting and reimbursement platform, and is designed to create a fast and efficient electronic expense reimbursement experience for IEEE volunteers.  IEEE's implementation of Concur already delivers volunteers a broad range of benefits, including faster reimbursement and the ability to track real-time status of expense reports. This affects you if you submit expense reports to a Region.

Concur has been introduced in a multi-phased rollout that began in Q4 2018 and is anticipated to extend to Regions in late September.  More information is coming soon, so stay tuned! 

IEEE staff and volunteers may interact with children through a multitude of diverse programs, including, but not limited to: educational STEM programs and clubs, conferences, mentoring programs, workshops, and others. If you currently participate in IEEE programs that involve working with children, or plan to do so, please review the IEEE Guidelines For Working With Children and IEEE Policies. The Guidelines are referenced within the IEEE Civility Policy.
