IEEE introduced Technical Co-Sponsor Fees (TCS Fees) in 2018 for all technically co-sponsored conferences in which there is no IEEE financial interest (0%). Please note that there will be a new TCS Fee structure in effect for any conferences occurring after 31 December 2020.
  • US$1,450 per event
  • US$22 for each paper submitted to IEEE Xplore®

Technical Co-Sponsors have the option to pass this fee on to their conferences. If this occurs, the conference is responsible for paying a portion of the fee. Conferences should be mindful of this cost when budgeting for their event.

Below are the IEEE requirements for all IEEE financially sponsored conferences. All IEEE EDS conferences must abide by these guidelines in order to have compliant contracts.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Jessica Lotito, CMP at the IEEE EDS office at

Contract review
All conference-related purchase transactions valuing US$1,000 or greater must be reviewed by the IEEE Conference Contracts Department before execution.

You may refer to the following chart for guidance on the appropriate review process for your transaction.
