Technical Councils are groups of Societies working together in broad areas of technology. Technical Councils sponsor activities that benefit individuals in all of the member Societies. There are currently seven Technical Councils with the following field of interest statements (below).

Note: The former IEEE Technology Management Council has transitioned to the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society.

IEEE Biometrics Council

The IEEE Biometrics Council advances, promotes, and coordinates work in the filed of biometric technology including the theory, design, and application of biometrics based on physical and/or behavioral features and traits for identification, verification, encryption, recognition and medical diagnosis. The Council sponsors publications, conferences and events, and networking opportunities.
