Position Statement

As technology plays an increasingly important role in our lives, it is critical that IEEE continues to be the global leader in science, technology, and innovation for the benefit of humanity. IEEE is uniquely positioned with the extraordinary expertise and dedication that our IEEE communities can offer.

Together we can face this challenge and enhance our profession by:

  • Empowering and engaging IEEE members and the scientific and professional community worldwide by addressing their needs with a human-centric personalized approach. Providing more value to members, creating more networking opportunities and services, expanding continuing education, broadly engaging all members, caring especially for the younger generations, and supporting career development.
  • Promoting inclusivity and diversity of geographical origin, technological expertise, profession, culture, gender, and age. Acting holistically and dynamically in evolving international environments, nurturing our local identities and communities, and intensifying synergic alliances with local and international associations.
  • Being the trusted source for high-quality innovative and timely knowledge.  Identifying current, interdisciplinary and emerging technologies, applications and standards. Increasing responsiveness to the needs of industry and academia, focusing on scientists, practicing professionals, young professionals, entrepreneurs, and students, while attracting new communities and the general public.

I am proud to be part of our IEEE community and I envision a holistic view for One IEEE. All IEEE members and volunteers are essential since they are the IEEE. Cooperation among all groups is essential since we are One IEEE, and should be strongly promoted to better nurture our scientific, technical, and professional community, worldwide and locally.

With this spirit, I am fully committed to serve with a collegial approach, valuing all diversities, caring for all needs, and promoting a comprehensive international perspective and care. I will be glad and honored to work with you to advance these efforts, share my experiences, and catalyze our activities and collaborations worldwide.

In this video, I briefly introduce my vision for strategic actions to nurture our IEEE and the entire scientific, technical, and professional community in our field, both worldwide and locally.

He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy.

His main research and industrial application interests are: intelligent systems, computational intelligence, pattern analysis and recognition, machine learning, signal and image processing, biometrics, intelligent measurement systems, industrial applications, distributed processing systems, internet-of-things, cloud computing, fault tolerance, application-specific digital processing architectures, and arithmetic architectures. 


Vincenzo Piuri is in his 33rd year of continuous and active service in IEEE, first as a student member and volunteer, and more recently as member of the IEEE Board of Directors for 4 years and IEEE Vice President for Technical Activities. He has been actively involved in many aspects and at many levels within IEEE activities and operations, including members services, technical committees, people networking, conferences, publications, education, finances, and management. 

In all these activities, he always had a comprehensive vision for IEEE as a single holistic entity as One IEEE, strongly promoting cooperation and inclusivity, for the mutual synergic benefit of all groups as well as our scientific, technical, and professional community and, ultimately, the entire society.
