"A fortunate few can say, in their lifetimes, that they made a difference within their profession. A remarkable few can say that they not only changed their profession, but other professions as well.Wiener’s contributions profoundly altered our world in ways that continue to be felt today. This IEEE conference will celebrate the work of Norbert Wiener, while noting his influence on developments and innovation that continue to shape and change our lives. I urge students, students of students, colleagues, technical historians –in short, everyone - to join me and those who knew this truly remarkable technologist." - Dr Peter Staecker, IEEE President 2013.
