Jacquelyn Cunningham, IEEE Senior Member

“I feel this tool is going to be adopted quickly by members. It’s going to give us a good feeling about being a member of IEEE.”

“For me, it’s all about how we can leverage technology to better the human experience, and to leverage what we know as engineers and scientists in IEEE, and getting that information out to the everyday person. I think having a good experience is going to get us really engaged and willing to do that.”

“With this tool, I can share knowledge with people who share a common interest with me. I can also discover people and activities that I might be interested in or would like to support. Not only are IEEE members potential users of this tool, but non-members as well, so we can all be in this great churn of information together. I just love the tool for that value.”

“Members’ credentials are regularly viewable and accessible, so you can find speakers for your meetings, for your projects, for any kind of collaborative effort. Students and young professionals are always looking for mentors. And senior members are looking to connect and give back. It allows you to see the value that connecting with any one person could bring to you — and the value that you could bring or share with that person. So it’s really a valuable tool, especially for young professionals and students.”

Ralph Ford, IEEE Senior Member

“IEEE Collabratec builds on the idea of bringing together all of our members in one place. We can have a place online where they can connect with each other, they can share ideas, and they can join technical communities. And that is really very powerful. Social media, social networks are important to people because it allows them to connect with others in a meaningful way. This is a capability that IEEE really needs. It’s the piece that will connect us in a much more meaningful way than we’ve ever been able to do so in the past.”

“Young graduates and professionals can make connections with others on this platform to search for jobs or enhance their careers. And the outside world also can come in to this same platform and find those young professionals if they so choose.”

“Now we can author papers together. We can work with our other IEEE colleagues on this trusted platform.”

“Communities can also be created. If I have a question, I can pose that question to the group. I can find out answers and get feedback from experts in the field. I can find somebody who is working on something that may be very esoteric or very relevant, and they don’t have to be in my local section. They can now be on the other side of the world.”

“What will people find valuable? The engagement and activity in the different communities will make people utilize this tool and find it valuable.”

S. Gopakumar, IEEE Senior Member

“Currently there is no single application that integrates researchers, authors, and professionals – and where non-members will have the chance to interact with existing members. They can also find a group of people who share their interests, making them more likely to want to join and interact with them.”

“This will also allow authors who are not even members get more involved with IEEE, to attend conferences, and build communities. To me, IEEE is like a big ocean. So many things are scattered here and there, you need to fish out the things you want. This tool should help achieve that.”

David Green, IEEE Senior Member

“IEEE Collabratec is a great tool to facilitate community interactions between subject matter experts. You will be able to engage and work with others in the various communities to help you achieve your professional goals.”

“What will people find valuable with IEEE Collabratec? Building communities to advance IEEE initiatives or simply participating in communities to learn about a few new ideas.”

“The great feature of IEEE Collabratec is that many dimensions of professional collaboration – technical work, authoring, private collaboration, technical communities, and metro area communities – are all available from one centralized hub accessible using any of your devices connected from anywhere at anytime.”

Francisco Martinez, IEEE Senior Member

“As I continue growing in my career, if I am looking for something I need, I am sure that here I can find someone who is developing new things, and this is really helpful. I can also be sure that the users will give me valuable feedback, because being members of IEEE is like being a family.”

Fred Mintzer, IEEE Life Fellow

“IEEE Collabratec provides options. Options for networking with the opportunity to connect with others for career and professional advancements within one single hub. Within this online platform you will be able to create and discover new ways to engage with others of similar interest.”

“The great feature of IEEE Collabratec is that it allows you to connect with others within IEEE along with other technology professionals from around the world all on one central hub.”

“What people will experience when interacting with IEEE Collabratec is not only the value of networking but also the ability to find new solutions for connecting with others while conducting research and much more.”

Gianluca Setti, IEEE Fellow

“IEEE Collabratec gives authors and researchers the capability of editing a scientific manuscript, a grant proposal, a report, or any kind of document by working with remote collaborators. This application will definitely allow easy collaboration and enhance productivity.”

“IEEE Collabratec is the integration of all the different features one may want as a researcher and an author, and there’s really no single tool that has all of the capabilities together. Everything is in a one stop shop and currently something comparable simply doesn’t exist.”

“IEEE Collabratec allows the possibility of remote co-authorship. For example, one can have students and collaborators from around the globe and all will be able to work smoothly on the same document. IEEE Collabratec isn’t just one tool it’s an integrated online platform that provides many options for me during my research or authoring process.“

“I have communities that I want to be in contact with constantly, and I know that there is activity going on that is sent through a community communication channel, but there is simply too much, and I cannot read it. IEEE Collabratec gives me the opportunity to keep up with messages easily.”
