Technical Activities Big Goal (Vision)

IEEE Technical Activities worldwide communities:

  • Develop a volunteer-led environment where technical thought leaders converge and create communities for people working in our fields (Connections)

Societies and Technical Councils

IEEE Societies and Technical Councils produce over 180 publications and sponsor, co-sponsor, and technically sponsor over 1,900 conferences each year all around the world. Their members take advantage of opportunities to network with other professionals and stay technically current within their fields of interest.

An IEEE Society is a membership community within IEEE representing a specific field of interest, while Technical Councils consist of a group of Societies that share similar fields of interest.
