Special Technical Communities Now Available to Increase Networking Opportunities

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 22 March 2014 -- In an effort to provide more networking alternatives, IEEE Computer Society is now offering technology professionals the opportunity to select from among 13 Special Technical Communities (STCs) to join.
 
These self-sustaining online communities are intended to unite computing professionals (including students) who share common technical, geographic, career, or other interests. Participation in the Special Technical Communities is also intended to help drive new technologies and create knowledge in the particular field of interest.
 
"These communities provide a meeting place to have discussions, develop materials, and share information about a focused topic," said Special Technical Communities Chair Christian Timmerer, an assistant professor at Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt, Austria. "Most of the activities are carried out online, which allows participation from around the globe and exposure to leaders in the field."
 
Special Technical Community are active in the following areas:
  • Broadening Participation in Computing
  • Cloud Computing
  • Education
  • eGovernment
  • Haptics
  • Human Computation
  • Multicore
  • Operating Systems
  • SmartGrid
  • Social Networking
  • Sustainable Computing
  • Systems Engineering, and
  • Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies.
STCs may be created around any set of ideas that are relevant to an IEEE Computer Society field of interest. STC members may be members of IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, or nonmembers of either.
