The Distinguished Visitors Program


The IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Visitors Program (DVP) was initiated in 1971 by Dr. Stephen Yau. It is a popular offering of first quality speakers serving IEEE Computer Society professional and student chapters. The DVP owes its success to the many volunteers and staff members of the Computer Society who generously contribute their time and talent. 

Each year, you will find new Distinguished Visitors (speakers) and new topics, to help maintain renewed interest even by those chapters that have already taken advantage of the program. You will also find that the email request and approval system can expedite the response to your DVP visit requests. The policies and procedures contained herein should clarify and address commonly asked questions raised by program participants.
