The IEEE Computer Society of Silicon Valley (also known as IEEE Computer Society Santa Clara Valley) is the largest Chapter in the area. We operate as part of the global IEEE Computer Society, which with nearly 85,000 members is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. IEEE CS was founded in 1946, and is the largest of the IEEE’s 38 societies. The Computer Society is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computing and information technology.
Our chapter emphasizes all aspects of computing to our local members and we welcome vistiors. We organize monthly Technical Meetings, which give opportunity for professional networking and where invited speakers from industry share their vision on the computing domain.
The chapter puts on two conferences each year. It sponsors the EDPS (Electronic Design Process Symposium) conference in April and co-organizes the NFIC (New Frontiers in Computing) conference with NATEA (North Americian Taiwanese Engineering & Science Association) and the IEEE Student Chapter at Stanford University later in Spring. EDPS provides a forum for Design and EDA communities to discuss state-of-the-art improvements to electronics design processes and CAD methodologies rather than on the functions of the individual tools themselves. NFIC is a high value, low cost conference that provides an overview of emerging technical areas.
