We appreciate your interest in Computer Society Technical Cosponsorship (TCS).
Under a TCS agreement, IEEE Computer Society volunteers and members actively participate in the meeting’s technical program committee, but the Computer Society accepts no financial or legal liability for the meeting.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get started on your application process. The requirements below outline what will be requested during your application process.
1. Application Processing Fees and Discounts
There is a non-refundable Computer Society TCS application processing fee of US$350. Payment information will be provided by Computer Society staff
There are various fees and discounts in addition to the application processing fee.
- If the conference uses Conference Publishing Services (CPS) for their publication, $350 will be discounted from the final CPS invoice.
- For conferences returning for their fourth consecutive technical cosponsorship, the Computer Society processing fee will increase to US$1,000 for that instance and all following consecutive conference instances.
- These fees do not include the IEEE Technical Cosponsorship fees.
2. Statement of Benefits
A Computer Society Technical Committee (TC), Technical Council, or Special Technical Community (STC) chair must provide their written endorsement in the form of a Statement of Benefits (SOB) letter to justify review for Technical Cosponsorship. The TC/STC and TC/STC Chair must also be listed on the application.
Computer Society staff will provide the SOB to the organizer. It is the organizer’s responsibility to fill out the SOB and send to the appropriate TC chair for endorsement.
It is the TC/STC chair’s responsibility to email a completed SOB letter directly to email@example.com. Note that the TC/STC will not receive financial benefits or added entitlements from a conference that is granted Technical Cosponsorship.
3. Post-Conference Questionnaire
(Required for All Repeat Conferences)
In order to review your request this year, we will need the organizer to complete the Post-Conference
IEEE Computer Society Review
Until all requirements are received by the Computer Society (approved TCS application/Processing Fees/SOB/Post Conference Questionnaire), the application will remain pending.
We’ll notify you once we’ve received a decision on your completed application from the Computer Society Conference Activities Committee (CAC). We will expedite this review as much as possible.
If you have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
