About IEEE VIC Summit & Awards
The 2019 IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit (IEEE VIC Summit) & Honors Ceremony will be held on Friday, 17 May at the Marriott Marquis San Diego, California, USA. There will be over 15 countries and more than 300 participants from students to mid-high career professionals.

This year’s IEEE VIC Summit brings to light the important role of women in technology with a keynote presentation from Dr. Telle Whitney, “Our Time to Lead: Women and Men Creating Technology Together, and Defining Our Future.” Additionally, there will be presentations on future security risks posed by IoT, talks on other emerging technologies and panel discussions on smart networks and social innovations, as well as ethics in artificial intelligence. Master of Ceremonies Mike North brings a unique mix of engineering and artistic skills as MC of the IEEE VIC Summit. In addition, there will be robot demos that will wow the crowd.

In the evening, IEEE rolls out the red carpet at the IEEE Honors Ceremony Gala, where the achievements of IEEE Life Fellow Kurt Petersen will be honored with the IEEE Medal of Honor—IEEE’s highest award—for his visionary contributions that led to the global growth of MEMS. The direction he provided for the field resulted in the tiny sensors, actuators, and other microelectronics that proliferate smart devices, healthcare tools, and automotive systems, enabling such innovations as autonomous driving, precision surgical techniques, and advanced smartphone applications. A special IEEE President’s Award will be given to Katherine G. Johnson, whose mathematical calculations of orbital mechanics at NASA were critical to the success of the first and subsequent US human spaceflights. Her life story, along with two other women employees at NASA, was the inspiration for the 2016 Oscar-nominated film “Hidden Figures.” There will be other honorees recognized in areas of healthcare, communications, computer science, environmental safety, power and more.

IEEE advances the interests of its members by recognizing their contributions in advancing technology for humanity. The awards administered by the IEEE Awards Board and presented on behalf of the Board of Directors are the highest-level awards given by IEEE.
