Special Technical Communities
Building global, interactive communities around important and emerging technical areas. Special Technical Communities (STCs) are intended to be financially
self-sustaining online communities of computing professionals (including students) who share a common technical, geographic, career, or other interest. STCs may be created around any set of ideas that are relevant to the Society’s field of interest. STCs are agile entities that are relatively easy to create and organize, and that can develop new products and services to realize their communities’ goals and objectives. STC membership is open to everyone and at no cost. STCs are emerging entities, evolving through learned policies and practices that are being determined through their activities under the IEEE Computer Society’s Member & Geographic Activities (MGA) Board.
