The IEEE Computer Society is the world's leading organization of computer professionals. Since its founding more than forty years ago, the Computer Society has grown into the largest of the 35 societies organized under the umbrella of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The society offers its 100,000 members the most comprehensive program of publications, meetings, and technical and educational activities available for computer scientists and engineers. Members can also participate in any of the society's 29 Technical Committees, dozens of standards working groups, or hundreds of local and student branch chapters. All combine to promote an active exchange of information, ideas, and technological innovation to keep Computer Society members current and competitive in the workplace.
