Web Site Information

  
About this Website

The IEEE-USA Website is presently hosted on the IEEE-USA Web Server.  It was officially unveiled at the 1995 IEEE-USA PACE Conference on September 1, 1995.  The website was redesigned and launched September 29, 2004.  The IEEE-USA web team is John Yaglenski and Greg Hill.

Submissions to the IEEE-USA Website

Materials developed for inclusion in the IEEE-USA Website should be submitted by e-mail or as ASCII files on a PC-formatted computer disk to the IEEE-USA Web Team, for review.  Pages should be HTML coded and instructions provided regarding where to place the page within the IEEE-USA web architecture. Materials developed for other IEEE entities should follow the IEEE Guidelines in the Author Digital Toolbox.

In the case of material hosted at remote sites, requests for links to/from IEEE-USA Website pages can be submitted by e-mail to either the IEEE-USA Webmaster or to the Staff Contact for the IEEE-USA page from which the link is sought.

IEEE-USA web page postings and updates will be done on an "as soon as possible." Most materials are posted within 24 to 48 hours.

Generally, content developed for the IEEE-USA Website should follow the formatting and style guidelines set forth in the Digital Toolbox. In addition, content should follow the following guidelines specific to the IEEE-USA Website:

Information, images and links contained on the page should be appropriate to the professional interests of IEEE's members.

Although links to non-IEEE sites are permissible, IEEE-USA hosted pages should not endorse commercial or subscription-based services or otherwise promote non-IEEE profit-making ventures unless such endorsements are approved by the appropriate IEEE-USA entities.

Pages should be formatted for display at 600 pixels width to accommodate the most widely used monitor size.  This can be done by placing the content of the web page within a table set to 600 pixels width.

Images may be used, but their size and number should be kept to a minimum to reduce load time. Icons and related images should be in GIF format (use JPEG format for large files such as portraits).

Authors should adhere to the current HTML 4.0 standard. Browser specific enhancements, frames,  and any other non-standard HTML tags are not permissible on the IEEE web server. IEEE-USA documents hosted at remote web sites may make use of these enhancements with appropriate notice to users and provision of non-enhanced alternative pages.

The page should not display any non-original material or images obtained in violation of copyright or other relevant intellectual property law. All original materials developed for and displayed on IEEE-USA pages will be subject to IEEE copyright unless otherwise noted.

Each page should contain the following common elements:

  • Full name of the organization (i.e. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. -- United States of America) and/or the abbreviation IEEE-USA.
  • An information contact or page "owner" with on-line e-mail address
  • Date of last change or update to the page
  • Appropriate copyright information.

Use of background graphics or "wallpapering" is discouraged, but background colors may be used. IEEE-USA's standard colors are black text on a white background with blue links and red recently visited links. The HTML code is BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="000000" LINK="#0000FF" VLINK="#FF0000."

If you are developing pages for the IEEE-USA website, you can select any similar page on the website as a model or use the following templates as a guide. Use your browser's "save as" function and remember to save the template as "source," not as "text" to retain the HTML tags.
