Distinguished Lecturer Program

Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) connects Senior IEEE ComSoc members, who are renowned communications technology experts, with ComSoc chapters so they can share their knowledge, expertise, and insights into the future of communications technology.

During the Distinguished Lecturer Tour (DLT), speakers address at least three groups in three separate locations within a reasonable geographic proximity to each other.

Groups eligible to participate in a DLT include: 

  • Established IEEE ComSoc Chapters
  • Local conference organizers
  • IEEE ComSoc members in areas where no IEEE ComSoc Chapter exists

For 2021, IEEE ComSoc will offer the DLT in an online, virtual format.
 

Distinguished Speaker Program

ComSoc’s Distinguished Speaker Program (DSP) enables current and past distinguished lecturers as well as ComSoc officers, IEEE Fellows, and prominent speakers to schedule lectures while traveling on business trips.

Request a Distinguished Lecturer or Speaker

To request a virtual lecture for your Chapter, please fill out the form below. The next deadline for requests is Monday, 17 May 2021.

To maximize participation at each session, Regional Coordinators will work with the Distinguished Lecturers and Chapter Chairs to schedule virtual sessions co-hosted by interested Chapters across the region and globe. Additional requests will be considered based upon availability. (An announcement will be made if in-person sessions become available).
