IEEE Circuits and Systems Society iDLP Initiative

We are pleased to make you aware of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society iDLP initiative. The "Industrial Distinguished Lecturer Program" (iDLP) aims to educate IEEE members about advanced topics that are of primary importance to the industry and to the CASS community. In this initiative, leading industry speakers will deliver lectures on relevant topics around the world through iDLP events organized by IEEE, in the context of IEEE chapters and conferences.

The iDLP series promotes the diffusion of cutting-edge knowledge with an emphasis on industrial challenges and perspectives for the benefit of IEEE CASS members. Additionally, iDLP speakers and their employing companies are given the opportunity to make a strong international impact, which we have already seen in the equally prestigious DLP program.

More information for prospective speakers and iDLP talk organizers is available here.

We look forward to making a better IEEE CASS through the iDLP program and hope to further promote excellence and knowledge in our Society!

For further information, please feel free to contact us via email. 

Thank you,

Massimo Alioto ( IEEE CASS iDLP Chair
Krishnendu Chakrabarty ( DLP Chair
