On April 8, 2015, the AUIS Department of Information Technology invited Dr. Sattar B. Sadkhan, chair of IEEE Iraq Section, to deliver a presentation about The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and its role in enhancing scientific activities in Iraq. Dr. Sadkhan talked about the benefits of scientific cooperation with the Institute through their representatives in Iraq like the IEEE Iraq Section, IEEE Iraq CIS Chapter and IEEE WIE Iraq Affinity Group etc. He also discussed the scientific activities undertaken and sponsored by these organizations within and outside Iraq since 2009.

Dr. Sadkhan is Professor of Wireless Digital Communication and Information Security at the University of Babylon, Iraq. In addition to IEEE Iraq Section, he is also the chairman of IEEE ComSoc Iraq Chapter, IEEE Computational Intelligence Iraq Chapter and URSI (International Union of Radio Science) Iraq Committee.

Dr. Sadkhan has published over 200 papers in international journals and conferences. Last year he co-authored and published a book: Multidisciplinary Perspectives in Cryptology and Information Security (IGI-Global). He received his Ph.D in Detection of Digital Modulation Signals from the Czech Republic in 1984.  

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) was formed in 1963 from the amalgamation of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the Institute of Radio Engineers. Today it is the world's largest association of technical professionals with more than 400,000 members in chapters around the world. Its objectives are the educational and technical advancement of electrical and electronic engineering, telecommunications, computer engineering and allied disciplines.
