This year’s IEEE Day is on 2 October. Its recurrent theme, however, is resolutely forward-looking: 'Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow'. Or in other words, while the world benefits from what's new, IEEE focuses on what's next. Events taking place around the world range from technical symposia to public engagement with local communities, and from interactive demos to general family fun. In previous years, weatherpermitting, even street parties and barbecues have been involved.
