Technical Councils are groups of Societies working together in broad areas of technology. Councils sponsor activities which benefit individuals in all of the member Societies.
The Councils of IEEE are officially titled IEEE______Council or optionally, IEEE Council on _________. The Council titles and field of interest statements are included below.
IEEE Biometrics Council (BIO-46) The theory, design, and application of biometric characterization of human beings, based on physiological and/or behavioral features and traits, in particular for identification, identity verification, authentication, encryption, recognition, and medical diagnosis. (Updated November 2007)
IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA-44) The field of interest of the Council spans the theory, implementation, and use of EDA/CAD tools to design integrated electronic circuits and systems. This includes tools that automate all levels of the design, analysis, and verification of hardware and embedded software up to and including complete working systems. (Updated June 2005)
IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NANO-42) The field of interest of the Council shall be the theory, design, and development of nanotechnology and its scientific, engineering, and industrial applications. The Council will provide a focus for cooperative activities, both internally and externally, including the promotion, consolidation, and coordination of nanotechnology activities among IEEE entities. (Updated February 2002)
IEEE Sensors Council (SEN-39) The fields of interest of the Council and its activities shall be the theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing, and application of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical, and biological phenomena, with emphasis on the electronics, physics, and reliability aspects of sensors and integrated sensor-actuators. (Updated February 1999)
IEEE Council on Superconductivity (CSC-41) The field of interest of the Council and its activities and programs shall be to cover the science and technology of superconductors and their applications, including materials and their applications for electronics, magnetics, and power systems, where the superconductor properties are central to the application. Super-conducting electronic applications will include both analog and digital circuits and systems. Power applications will include the generation, storage, transmission, and use of electric power. (Updated February 2006)
IEEE Systems Council (SysC-45) This Council integrates IEEE activities regarding aspects of multiple disciplines and specialty areas associated with the engineering of systems. This Council covers, but is not limited to, the following: Systems engineering, education, standards, processes, and methodologies; modeling, simulation, and integration related to design, testing, production, and support; design aspects for robust design, human factors, safety, security, and usability; transition of products from design to production, deployment, and use; quality control and system management; program/product/project management interactions; risk management; systems architecture. (Updated June 2005)
IEEE Technology Management Council (TMC-14) The field of interest of the Technology Management Council encompasses the management sciences and practices applicable to individuals engaged in or overseeing the management of engineering, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship in a global environment. The Council provides the tools for advancing the careers of technology and innovation managers, technology professionals transitioning to management, and technology professionals with an understanding of management issues.
