1 Future Directions Committee Region 9 Meeting
Roberto de Marca Chair, IEEE Future Directions Comm. 2012 IEEE President Elect Candidate

2 IEEE Future directions Committee Scope
The mission of the IEEE Future Directions Committee is to anticipate and determine the direction of existing, new and emerging technologies, and related issues, and to spearhead their investigation and development by IEEE. The emphasis is on new, emerging technical areas either not adequately covered by existing IEEE Societies/Councils (S/C), or which overlap the fields of interest of the existing S/C's. 3/27/2017
