The applied-for string is .IEEE. The name of the community that the string will serve (as identified in answer to Question 20(a)) is exactly the same: IEEE.

IEEE has used the name IEEE continuously and exclusively for nearly 50 years to identify its association of technology professionals and the related goods and services it offers, such as conferences, publications, and technical standards.

IEEE has registered the trademarks IEEE (with or without design elements) in over forty countries around the world, as shown in the attached table. In order to protect its trademark rights, IEEE monitors third-party trademark applications and use of similar trademarks or names and is aware of no other significant meaning of the term IEEE beyond identifying the IEEE community. IEEE regularly and vigorously enforces its trademark when it encounters infringers.
