The CIS Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) supports local CIS Chapters and CIS members by helping them to invite leading researchers in their respective fields. DLP speakers act as ambassadors of the society during their visit to local chapters and forster professional activities in the area. CIS DLP conducts a successful year in 2011, with 11 talks completed/scheduled this calendar year. We expect to accomplish several more DLP visits this year based on the requests by local chapters. Chapter Chairs still have the opportunity to request DLP visits for this calendar year, so members could benefit from the great opportunity provided by the DLP. http://ieee-cis.org/members/dlp/
