IEEE

With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the largest of IEEE’s 38 societies, the Computer Society is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computing and information technology.

The Computer Society serves the information and career-development needs of today’s computing researchers and professionals with books, conferences, conference publications, magazines, online courses, software development certifications, standards, and technical journals. The redesigned www.computer.org offers a rich repository of online content and tools, from Computing Now, which provides free articles and multimedia content, to the Build Your Career career-development site, and the e-Learning Campus, where members can access more than 3,000 online courses and 600 online books.

The Computer Society’s Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) program for mid-career professionals and Certified Software Development Associate (CSDA) credential for recent college graduates confirm the skill and knowledge of those working in the field. The Computer Society is also the producer of the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge.

Known worldwide for its computer-standards activities, the Computer Society promotes an active exchange of ideas and technological innovation among members and technology companies producing today’s innovative products and services.

The IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL) provides access to more than 330,000 articles and papers from more than 3,500 conference proceedings and 27 Computer Society periodicals. The Conference Publishing Services division produces more than 250 conference proceedings, CD-ROMs, and multimedia each year. CS Press publishes full-length technical books on cutting-edge topics through a partnership with John Wiley and Sons, as well as electronic products (ReadyNotes) and curated article collections (EssentialSets) under its own imprint.

With about 40 percent of its members living and working outside the United States, the Computer Society fosters international communication, cooperation, and information exchange. It monitors and evaluates curriculum accreditation guidelines through its ties with the US Computing Sciences Accreditation Board and the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

Based in Washington, DC, the Computer Society operates offices in Tokyo and Los Alamitos, Calif.
