  • Chapters are at the heart of the SSCS. Chapters organize local educational and professional development events for our members and help to attract new members to our society. We strive to create a vibrant networking community for our members that also provides them with learning opportunities and recognizes their accomplishments. The Chapters committee works with the Chapters chair to identify and share best practices, to respond to suggestions from Chapter chairs and SSCS members regarding making each chapter more effective, and to provide guidance on chapter subsidies and awards.

  • The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society publishes peer-reviewed technical journals, magazines, curated web-based content, books, and conference publications, in addition to online seminars and courses, conferences, career development services, and networking opportunities. The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society publications are led and governed by the Publications Committee, which oversees each publishing line and reports to the SSCS Adcom.

    The SSCS Publications Committee monitors and advises the Solid-State Circuits Society on sponsored periodicals and publications, both soft and hardcopy. The objectives of the Committee are to: monitor quality and timeliness, provide suggestions for improvements, consider new initiatives for dissemination of technical content to SSCS members and the technical community, ensure that SSCS-sponsored publications meet the policies and procedures for IEEE periodicals, conduct a financial ‘health check’ periodically, and make recommendations for changes, if required. The Committee also identifies overlapping fields of interest and assists the SSCS in resolving any disagreements regarding other IEEE periodicals. Important developments in IEEE publication policies that may impact the Society and its sponsored periodicals are monitored and reported to the SSCS Adcom.
