LETTER FROM THE IEEE PRESIDENT AND AWARDS BOARD CHAIR

Dear IEEE Members, Honorees, Colleagues, and Guests:
Welcome to the 2017 IEEE VIC Summit and Honors Ceremony Gala!
The inaugural IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit presents a unique opportunity to meet, mingle, and
network with peers and some of the top technology "giants" in the world. We have created a dynamic one-day event
to showcase the breadth of engineering by bringing innovators, visionaries, and leaders of technology to the Silicon
Valley area to discuss what is imminent, to explore what is possible, and to discover what these emerging areas mean
for tomorrow. The day sessions will look to the future of the industry and the impact engineers will have on serving the
global community. The Summit's activities culminate with this evening's IEEE Honors Ceremony Gala.
Tonight's awards ceremony truly reflects the universal nature of IEEE, as the visionaries and innovators we celebrate
herald from around the world. We are proud of the collective technical prowess of our members and appreciate the rich
diversity of the engineering, scientific, and technical branches in which our colleagues excel. At IEEE, we are focused on
what is next-enabling innovation and the creation of new technologies. IEEE, as a global community, has for decades
seen the challenges facing our world. Time and time again, IEEE members have risen to face those challenges and
have leveraged the power of technology to improve the human condition. Technology can overcome tough challenges.
It always has. And at no other point in history have we had such opportunities for technical innovation available to us,
ready to shape our world.
The IEEE Honors Ceremony is a celebration of those visionaries, leaders, and legends-our members and
colleagues who continue to define technology's state of the art. And it is our hope that the IEEE VIC Summit will
become IEEE's most external-facing annual event, looking to the future of the industry and sharing the impact
engineers have on serving the global community. This year we are also excited to celebrate a milepost in IEEE
history: It is the 100th anniversary of the IEEE Medal of Honor, IEEE's highest award. Established in 1917, its
recipients include Guglielmo Marconi, Claude E. Shannon, William Shockley, Robert M. Metcalfe, and Gordon
E. Moore-and we are so pleased that Kees Schouhamer Immink will be given the Medal of Honor this evening.
On behalf of IEEE's Board of Directors, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our generous awards
sponsors and to all of the nominators, endorsers, volunteers, and professional staff for their dedication to making
our Awards Program such a success. We would like to acknowledge all of this year's speakers, panelists, and wellqualified award nominees-the diverse array of educators, engineers, scientists, innovators, visionaries, leaders,
entrepreneurs, and practitioners-who exemplify the mission of the IEEE of advancing technology for the benefit
of humanity.

Karen Bartleson,
IEEE President and CEO
