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
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
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
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"
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
