The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), which is the most important international scientific society in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the related disciplines, recently acknowledged DISI professors for significant contributions to education and research in communications technology. 
The purpose of the IEEE is to promote innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity by promoting communication and collaboration.

Recognized as an expert in the area of 5G, network automation and cognitive networks, prof. Fabrizio Granelli was nominated by IEEE Communications Society as Distinguished Lecturer during the period 2021-22. Therefore, he will give seminar’s activities worldwide focused on the topics: Network Function Virtualization in Aerial Communications, Automating network management in 5G and beyond mobile networks, Integrating UAVs in 6G mobile networks, Computing in Communication Networks, Cognition and Network Automation and Communications infrastructure at the time of pandemics.
Prof. Granelli was IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer for two consecutive periods between 2012 and 2015, offering a large number of seminars on green communication and networking and smart grid communications in Canada, U.S.A., Brazil, Japan, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Morocco and Mongolia.

After being endorsed as one of the top influential researchers in the field of Geological & Geomatics Engineering, prof. Lorenzo Bruzzone has been selected as “Featured Author” from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE). His academic profile is now one of the three highlighted authors on the homepage of the IEEExplore, the IEEE publications website. 

Recently, prof. Maurizio Marchese’s paper "Prove Me Wrong! How Debating Becomes the Secret Weapon to Teach ICT Students Innovation and Entrepreneurship" has been accepted and published at IEEE TALE 2020 Conference about "Embarking on a new era of learning with transformative technologies".
The conference theme challenges you to look anew at how the potential of current and emerging technologies can and should be harnessed for education and learning in our ever-changing world. 
The paper illustrates the theoretical, pedagogical and practical elements that led to the design of Technology Battles. It also proposes the debate as a viable tool to introduce ICT students to the ambiguous nature of the socio-economic and ethical impacts of the technologies they work with.

Finally, IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (IEEE AESS) awarded the technical panel “Glue Technologies for Space Systems” as Outstanding Panel of the year. This panel is chaired by prof. Claudio Sacchi and involved also prof. Fabrizio Granelli and prof. Nicola Conci.
Since 2012 prof. Sacchi has been the co-organizer of the session 4.09 of IEEE Aerospace Conference: “Wideband Communication Systems”. From 2005 onwards, he has been a TPC member of IEEE ICC, IEEE GLOBECOM and IEEE PIMRC conferences. He has got a 20-year experience in satellite and Space communications. Since 1999 he has been actively involved in research projects related to multimedia satellite communications and EHF satellite experimentations, funded by qualified research institutions and Space agencies (CNR, ASI, CNIT, MIUR).

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. It includes more than 419,000 members in more than 160 countries and more than 124,000 Student members.
The Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) connects Senior IEEE ComSoc members, who are renowned communications technology experts, with ComSoc chapters so they can share their knowledge, expertise, and insights into the future of communications technology.
TALE is the IEEE Education Society's premier conference series in the Asia-Pacific region. It aims to provide a forum for scholars and practitioners to share their knowledge and experience in engineering and technology education, as well as in technology-enabled educational innovation across a variety of academic and professional disciplines. 
The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (IEEE AESS) provides a global professional home for engineers working in the electronic system’s domain.
