Find Connections in Your Field with Technical Communities
If you are seeking a community dedicated to your field of expertise, look to Technical Communities. Members in these communities organize conferences, engage with publications, influence the development of standards, develop programs for student activities, and create new resources with the financial backing and staff support of the IEEE Computer Society.
Technical Communities support evolving technology areas, including:
- Cloud Computing
- Computational Life Sciences
- Data Engineering
- Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
- High Performance Computing (HPC)
- Software Engineering
- Explore More Focus Areas
Join Upstart Technology Areas with Special Technical Communities
Special Technical Communities (STCs) are the starting point for students and professionals wishing to grow a community on an emerging or unrepresented topic within the Computer Society. Their primary objective is organizing online activities that meet the needs of other professionals with interest in this subject. Successful Special Technical Communities may go on to become part of existing Computer Society Technical Communities and unlock additional support from the Society.
Resources for Women in Computing
IEEE Computer Society recognizes that women around the world continue to face unique challenges in pursuit of careers within computer science and engineering. We’ve compiled helpful resources that support girls and women entering computing careers and referral recommendations for groups, networking, and awards.
