Monthly Section and Chapter Meetings are designed for general technical and professional interests. The section newsletter runs monthly and publishes upcoming events and special activities, and the monthly event calendar is updated each week on this website.
IEEE members are invited to become active in the Dayton Section and its Society Chapters. All members are welcome to attend any of the Section and Chapter meetings or local seminars.
From the birthplace of aviation, to 21st century aerospace innovation, Dayton, Ohio, has been a consistent technology leader. The IEEE Dayton Section logo, designed in 2012 by Tony Natarian, acknowledges the influence of aviation in Dayton region. The Dayton Section IEEE provides world class leadership for the professional needs of the technology workforce in the Dayton area. This logo underscores IEEE’s commitment to the Dayton region.
National Aerospace & Electronics Conference, NAECON, is an annual conference held in the summer and sponsored by IEEE Dayton Section and the Aerospace Electronics Systems Society. NAECON is a major forum for researchers, practitioners, and students interested in advanced aerospace sensors, reconfigurable computing, navigation, power & control systems, radar & imaging fusion, advanced materials, RFIC technology, collaboration, cognitive signal processing and visualization, THz & RF and nonlinear signal processing, passive and active sensing, bio-inspired and cyber-physical applications and Trust in semiconductor design. NAECON takes place in the June/July time frame.

IEEE International Awards Initiated by the Dayton Section
The Pioneer Award has been given yearly since 1949. Created by NAECON in 1949, the Pioneer Award has recognized the numerous outstanding people for their contributions in the electrical and electronic fields. As NAECON grew, the IEEE Dayton Section and the IEEE and Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society became the co-sponsors for the conference and always honored the Pioneer Award winners at their gala banquet. The important of this award has grown to become the international premier award of the Aerospace Electronic Systems Society. This award is given for an accomplishment where the system/concept had initially been developed at least 20 years prior to the year of the award to ensure proper historical perspective.
The display case for the IEEE Dayton Section will be used to display plaques for the Nobel Award, the Russ Award, and the Pioneer Award. The display case is located at Tec^Edge, on 5000 Springfield Street, Suite 100. The IEEE Dayton Section greatly appreciates the efforts of Mr. McFawn to make this happen, it is very important for our Dayton Section and the Dayton Community!
