Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) Current Lecturers

Below are the contact information and terms of the current IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) DLP speakers.

The abstract(s) of the Distinguished Lectures and speaker biographies are available for both the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 terms.

If you are interested in inviting a DLP speaker to your region, please get in touch with your local IEEE-CASS chapter chair. Your chapter chair will submit the CASS DLP Request Form to formalize the request to sponsor a DLP lecture. Please remember to check the Education page for the latest updates.
