About IEEE Region 1 Industry Day

IEEE Region 1 Industry Day was instituted in 2009 with the desire to increase interaction of our members with the professionals and executives from the industry. The conference program of industry day offers members and nonmembers an opportunity to engage with specialists in different fields from different industries that may lead to understanding of the need and benefits of collaboration.

Industry Day provides a unique platform for exchange of information across multiple disciplines and among thought leaders on trends and advances in reliable nanoscale circuit technology, system hardware and software collaboration for globally integrated products, services and solutions.
