Speakers Bureau

In addition to the Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (DML) program, MTT-S offers the Speakers Bureau (SB) program as another technical service to its members. The program provides a pool of expert speakers from various technical fields who can deliver talks on a case-by-case basis, subject to technical focus, location, and availability of funds. The SB speakers are selected by the MTT-S Technical Committees. Previously, talks were usually given locally and in-person only. However, with the advancement of virtual tools, it is now possible to give talks virtually from anywhere in the world. Therefore, the SB Program now offers both in-person and virtual talks.

The operation procedure of the program is as follows:

In-person SB Talks:

  • The in-person SB talks only can be requested by Chapters. To request an in-person SB talk, the Chapter should be located near the speaker’s region, or the cost should be covered within the limited financial support. The maximum financial support per speaker is $500/trip and $1000/year, with a maximum total support per Technical Committee of $2000/year (all regions) plus an additional $1000/year for talks delivered to Regions 9-10.
  • The Chapters can contact speakers directly to arrange the trip. The speakers can be reached  by clicking “Contact” button on their profile page. Before traveling, the speaker should submit the online in-person SB pre-travel form to the SB coordinator for approval.
  • The Chapter is responsible for providing city transportation, lodging, and meals for the speaker as necessary. If a Chapter is co-sponsoring a regional conference, the talk can be given at the conference. The Chapter should broadly advertise the talk to the local technical community to maximize attendance and inform the speaker of an approximate number of attendees before the trip.
  • After returning from travel, the speaker should complete the in-person SB after-travel form and submit it to the SB coordinator for record-keeping purposes. The request for reimbursement must be filed separately through the IEEE CONCUR system.

Virtual SB Talks:

  • The virtual SB talks can be requested by a Chapter or any MTT-S Members. If requested by MTT-S Members, you would need minimum three members to support the request and at least one of the three members must be at “member” grade or higher. For instance, it can be a professor with “member” grade plus two student/gradate student members. Please note that each speaker has a limited availability for the talk. The request will be run on “first come first serve” basis. To avoid disappointment, you may make requests early.
  • To request a virtual SB talk, please submit the online virtual SB talk request form.  If requested from a chapter, please include the chapter’s name. If requested from MTT-S members, please include three members’ membership number and grade. The SB Coordinator Dr. Mohammad Madihian will guide you for the following process.
  • After the talk is done, the speaker should submit the virtual SB talk record form for record-keeping purposes.

The lecture topics and speakers are listed on this page below.

The DML-Emeritus (DML-E) speakers can also be requested via the SB Program. Please contact the SB Coordinator Dr. Mohammad Madihian if you have any questions/enquiries.
