CASS offers 16 technical committees. Committees are open to any IEEE member. Membership is by recommendation and is approved by a majority vote of active TC members present at any of the Committee’s physical meetings (usually held annually at ISCAS).
To join a Technical Committee, please contact the Committee Chair, as listed on the TC’s Web site.
Message from the IEEE CAS Vice President, Technical Activities: Vojin G. Oklobdzija
I would like to thank the Board of Governors for their vote to appoint me for another 2 years term as Vice President of Technical Activities. I have served a two year term 2010-2012 and my new term will end December 31st, 2013. The past two years have been challenging with respect to the two important tasks that I started: (a) defining a “vision” of CAS (b) evaluation and organization of Technical Committees. I expect to complete those tasks in my second term. Therefore I expect this term to be both difficult and challenging. I hope I will be able to deliver and justify the confidence that was given to me. Read on…

The goal of the Cellular Nanoscale Networks and Array Computing (CNNAC) Technical Committee is to foster research, development, education and industrial dissemination of knowledge relating to the emerging field of cellular dynamic computers and models briefly called CNN computing. CNN (“cellular neural/nonlinear network”) computing is used as a generic terms for analog and logic (analogic) stored programmable array computers and models with a core of mainly locally interconnected dynamical systems.The activity is genuinely multidisciplinary, drawing upon knowledge and expertise from fields such as biology, physics and chemistry, in addition to areas more traditionally associated with the IEEE such as electrical and computer engineering, computer science and information technology.

Communication Systems will continue to become more complex in order to provide higher levels of performance. In addition, due to the increased variability inherent in nanoscale technologies, the scarcity of spectrum resources and the desire to provide additional communications services, systems will become increasingly flexible, adaptable, cognitive, and tolerant of increased variability in nanoscale technologies.
