    IEEE Sponsorship Types

     IEEE sponsors a wide range of geographically diverse
     technical conferences, symposiums and workshops to facilitate
     identification, creation, capture and exchange of scientific and
     technological knowledge that benefits the IEEE members,
     profession, and humanity.

     Available sponsorship types are:
      – Sole Sponsorship: accepting all financial, technical, and legal
      – Co-Sponsorship: sharing the financial and legal liabilities
        according to the percentage of sponsorship.
      – Technical Co-Sponsorship: accepting only the technical liability
        and is usually requested by a non-IEEE entity and requires an
        approval of an IEEE O/U.
