Goals and Scope

Special Technical Communities focus on selected technical areas and integrate contemporary tools and technology to break down silos and foster new ideas.

CS Cloud Computing STC focuses on Cloud activities across CS, involving both CS members and non-members. Its work is complementary to the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative (IEEE CCI), a 3-year project to promote Cloud efforts across IEEE.

The goal of the Computer Society (CS) Special Technical Community (STC) for Cloud Computing (CC) is to bring together Computer Society members and non-members  with an interest in Cloud Computing. 

Our members range from new to cloud computing to experts in cloud computing.  

The STC is by members for members.  

The content provided by the CS STC CC will give members accurate, vendor-neutral information that will demystify IT's top cloud-related concerns (such as ensuring adequate security, framing service level agreements, impacts on staffing, and enabling rapid scaling up and down).

We provide our members; up-to-date information and resources about cloud computing. 



  1. Develop and/or disseminate Cloud Computing knowledge on our outward facing web site (cloudcomputing.ieee.org)    

  2. Facilitate Cloud Computing information exchange via social media, blogs, and meet-ups.      

To accomplish these goals we will:

  • recruit volunteer authors, practitioners, researchers, and other community members. 
  • work synergistically CS Boards (EAB, PUB, SA, TAB, PA, MGA), CS TCs, and IEEE CCI.
