IEEE Technical Activities' mission is to foster the development and facilitate the exchange of scientific and technological knowledge that benefits members, the profession, and humanity. It comprises 39 IEEE Societies, six IEEE technical Councils, seven IEEE technical communities, and the Technical Activities Board (TAB).
IEEE Societies and technical Councils produce over 160 publications and sponsor, co-sponsor, and technically sponsor over 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.
IEEE Technical Activities is home to a growing number of technical communities, each responsible for fostering new and emerging technologies. These communities are currently free to join and include:
The IEEE Technical Activities Board is the governing body of IEEE Technical Activities and is the largest of six major boards within IEEE. There are 62 voting members, which include presidents of all 45 Societies and technical Councils, as well as officers, division directors (who also sit on the Board of Directors), and chairs of key TAB committees.
Many IEEE members have made enormous contributions to the success of IEEE Technical Activities (TA) over the years. Now, the IEEE Technical Activities Board is giving IEEE members a chance to recognize such colleagues through the new IEEE TAB Hall of Honor Recognition.
