ARCHIVED: What is the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and where can I find information about it?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) was formed in the late 1800s as an organization of technical professionals. It has since become very active in the development of technical specifications and standards, including many of the technologies used to build the infrastructure of the Internet. Much of its work is done through its technical societies, associations of professionals who share interest in specific areas. For more, visit the IEEE web site.
The IEEE's technical societies cover a broad spectrum of fields, ranging from oceanic engineering to nuclear sciences; following are links to the web pages for some of its computer-related groups:
IEEE Circuits and Systems Society
IEEE Communications Society
IEEE Computer Society
IEEE Information Theory Society
- IEEE Computational Intelligence Society
