The IEEE Washington Section calendar pulls content from the Washington Section’s vTools Events feed, the Northern Virginia Section’s vTools Events feed, and the Baltimore Section’s vTools Events feed, since there is significant overlap between the two sections’ members. (vTools Events is the IEEE-operated database that contains all IEEE events globally. To be useful, it requires filtering at the section level.)

Registration for events is handled by vTools. To register for an event using vTools, click the “Register Today” link at the bottom of an event description on this site.
