Our Vision is to be the leading provider of technical information, community services, and personalized services to the world’s computing professionals. The Goal of society is to be essential to the global technical community and computer professionals everywhere and be universally recognized for the contributions of technical professionals in developing and applying technology to improve global conditions.
The IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering committees, conference organisations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees.
The IEEE Computer Society is a leading publisher of technical material in computing. Its publications include 13 peer-reviewed technical magazines and 20 scholarly journals called Transactions, as well as conference proceedings, books, and a variety of digital products. The Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL) provides subscriber access to all CS publications. In 2008, the IEEE Computer Society launched Computing Now, a Web portal featuring free access to a rotation of CSDL articles, along with technical news, CS blogs, and multimedia content.
As most publications were delivered digitally in 2014, the IEEE Computer Society launched the complementary monthly digest Computing Edge magazine, which consists of curated articles from its magazines.
Conferences & Events
The IEEE Computer Society sponsors more than 170 technical conferences each year and coordinates the operation of several technical committees, councils, and task forces. The IEEE Computer Society also maintains 12 standards committees to develop IEEE standards in various areas of computer and software engineering (e.g., the Design Automation Standards Committee and the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee).
In 2010, the IEEE Computer Society introduced Special Technical Communities (STCs) as a new way for members to develop communities focusing on selected technical areas.Current topics include broadening participation, cloud computing, education, eGov, haptics, multicore, operating systems, smart grids, social networking, sustainable computing, systems engineering, and wearable and ubiquitous technologies.
