IEEE-CS Introduces Membership Packages to Serve Specific Technical Interests

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 29 October 2012 – In an effort to better serve the growing audience of global computing professionals, IEEE Computer Society is launching membership packages to meet specific technical focuses and goals.
