Alexander Graham Bell Founding officers of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers in 1884: Thomas A. Edison American Institute of Electrical Engineers
Guglielmo Marconi Founding member of the Institute of Radio Engineers in 1912: The Institute of Radio Engineers 1912 Radio telegraph operators communications with the sinking Titanic demonstrated the power of radio
AIEE + IRE = IEEE The idea that there should be one organization for all electrical engineers was an old one, and became more powerful as the profession expanded beyond its separate roots in power and radio. In 1962, the boards and memberships of the two institutes agreed to merge. On January 1, 1963, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers was born with 150,000 members. 1962 Symposium on the proposed merger, IRE National Convention Special merger issue of the Proceedings of the IRE The badge of the new IEEE combined the right hand rule from the IRE with the kite from the AIEE

IEEE Self- Archiving Policy IEEE allows authors to post a copy of the pre- print peer-reviewed copy on personal and institutional Web sites, as such we are a RoMEO green publisher. RoMEO is a service provided by SHERPA, an organization that tracks publishers policies. RoMEO http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo /search.php
Authors Rights to Post Accepted Versions of Their Papers An accepted manuscript is a version which has been revised by the author to incorporate review suggestions, and which has been accepted by IEEE for publication. The final, published version is the reviewed and accepted manuscript, with copy-editing, proofreading and formatting added by IEEE. Upon publication, authors must replace the preprints with either 1) the full citation to the IEEE works with Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) or links to the papers abstracts in IEEE Xplore®, or 2) the accepted versions only (not the IEEE-published versions), including the IEEE copyright notice and full citation, with links to the final, published papers in IEEE Xplore®
Prior Publication Authors submitting manuscripts must disclose whether there are conference papers by the authors that are similar, whether published or submitted, including information that very clearly indicates how the new submission differs from the previously published work(s). Such papers should be cited in the submitted manuscript.
Multiple Submissions Multiple submissions is defined as a given manuscript being concurrently under active consideration by two or more publications. It is at the discretion of each IEEE Organization Unit whether or not to allow multiple submissions. Authors shall inform editors of multiple submissions of manuscripts.
Policy on Plagiarism IEEE defines plagiarism as the reuse of someone else's (or his/her/their own) prior ideas, processes, results, or words without explicitly acknowledging the original author and source.
