Abstract—News of interest to Computer Society members.
Keywords—IEEE Computer Society; Editor in Chief
This year, IEEE celebrates its 50th year honoring select IEEE members with Fellow status. Fellows are those members whose accomplishments have advanced the engineering field, and as a result, they have brought significant value to society. The grade of Fellow was first established in 1964, when the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) and the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) merged; it's a highly selective elevation, as only one-tenth of one percent of the total voting membership can be elevated in any one year.
Over the past 50 years, IEEE has elevated roughly 10,000 members to this honor. Throughout 2014, IEEE will celebrate its Fellows in a number of ways.
