The IEEE Ethics and Member Conduct Committee (EMCC) received a complaint against Dr. Tao Li, a member in the grade of Fellow of the IEEE. Following an EMCC investigation, a hearing board appointed by the IEEE Board of Directors found cause that Dr. Li had violated Section II, Subsections 7 and 8 of the IEEE Code of Ethics. The IEEE Board of Directors sustained these findings and imposed the sanction of Expulsion from IEEE Membership on Dr. Li, in accordance with IEEE Bylaw I-110.5. The IEEE Board of Directors also determined that this notification to the IEEE membership should be made.
