Glasgow celebrates 30 years of Electronic Engineering Conferences by creating an IEEE Glasgow Tartan

Glasgow is synonymous with engineering excellence and hosts more Electrical and Electronic Engineering conferences than any other UK city outside London.

Glasgow is synonymous with engineering excellence and hosts more Electrical and Electronic Engineering conferences than any other UK city outside London. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of IEEE conferences in Glasgow, with the city welcoming over 35 conferences in the field over the last 30 years to 2022.

ICASSP ’89 was Glasgow’s first IEEE conference, led by General Chair Professor Tariq Durrani OBE and IEEE Life Fellow from the University of Strathclyde. To celebrate the anniversary and the city’s proud connection to IEEE, Glasgow Convention Bureau created an IEEE Glasgow Tartan. The fabric has been created using traditional methods, woven in Scotland, incorporating IEEE colours which represent the values of the IEEE brand.

The tartan was officially unveiled by Glasgow’s Lord Provost, Eva Bolander in a presentation to the IEEE President, Professor Jose Moura, at a 30th Anniversary IEEE Dinner held at Glasgow City Chambers last month.
