Help bring your presentations and IEEE communications to life with colorful icons and visual symbols that represent your topic from the updated IEEE icon library

An icon is a small picture or symbol intended to help people quickly recognize a tool, site, function or file format. Icons should be consistent in their behavior, positioning, and design and should reinforce commonly used metaphors. 

To maintain consistency across communications, an icon library representing various technologies, and many commonly used symbols for use in print and digital communications has been developed for use. There are 64 icons available in four varied sets.

Topics include technologies, common computer-related symbols such as downloading a file, sign in, controls like pause, forward, backward, and many more.

Use of icons:

Consider using these icons to help illustrate technologies and topics as support graphics on your print and digital communications.

Please note: These icons may NOT be used in the creation of “logos” or IEEE trademarks.
