Over the years, through these generous donations from its members, AP-S has established numerous dedicated Funds within the IEEE Foundation. Dr. Raj Mittra, Dr. C.J. Reddy and Dr. Ulrich Rohde, who are honored philanthropists as members of the IEEE Heritage Circle, have made notable impacts by giving back to their technical home of AP-S.


IBM Sponsors New IEEE Medal Named for Computing Pioneer Frances E. Allen

A new IEEE medal, sponsored by IBM, honors computing pioneer and IEEE Fellow Frances E. Allen, who died on 4 August.

Allen, who is also an IBM Fellow, helped design and build Alpha, a high-level code-breaking language that featured the ability to create new alphabets beyond the system-defined ones. For her contributions to computing, Allen received the Association for Computing Machinery’s A.M. Turing Award in 2006. She was the first woman to receive the honor. She is also an ACM Fellow.


IEEE Foundation Supports Remote Instruction Virtual Event for University Faculty

During the first half of 2020, COVID-19 caused universities around the world to shut down. With little time to prepare and limited resources, many engineering and technology professors had to quickly make the transition to fully remote instruction. Although faculty did the best they could, many knew that they needed more education on how to teach effectively online, along with a better long-term strategy for future classes during the uncertain future brought about by the pandemic.

To help meet this need, IEEE Educational Activities and IEEE Education Society partnered to host a virtual conference called Effective Remote Instruction: Reimagining the Engineering Student Experience to help prepare university educators for their return to an online or hybrid classroom.
