Revision as of 19:06, 9 December 2019

A suggestive list of technical achievements in IEEE's fields of interest which might be suitable for proposal as milestones. The Region number where the achievement took place is shown. This is by no means all of them, nor does an appearance on this list guarantee approval.  Please feel free to suggest others to ieee-history@ieee.org  -- or even better -- propose an achievement as a milestone.  Please consult the Milestone Guidelines for more information on the milestone process.

There is also a list according to regions of milestones which have already been dedicated.

Australian IEEE Members have created a list of important technological events in Australia some of which might also be appropriate for proposal.
