The I&M Society Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) provides I&M chapters around the world with talks by experts on topics of interest and importance to the I&M community. Our lecturers are among the most qualified experts in their own field, and we offer our members a first-hand chance to interact with these experts during their lectures.

The I&M Society is currently accepting applications for new Distinguished Lecturers for the DLP. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, DLP Evaluations will be conducted virtually on Zoom during the week of I2MTC 2021 (May 16 – 22, 2021). A maximum of 16 applicants this year will be accepted, and applications will be accepted through the deadline of April 30, 2021, until all evaluation slots are filled.

COVID-19 has required all of us to adapt personally and professionally, and the I&M Society is no exception. To meet this challenge, the I&M Society launched the IEEE IMS Virtual Distinguished Lecturer Webinar Series. This initiative allowed us to continue providing IMS members with our respected and reputable Distinguished Lecturer program. Recordings of the webinars are now available for free to all.
