Dear CAS Society Member,

The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) recently approved the Standards Activities Sub Division (SASD) under its Technical Activities (TA) Division. IEEE CASS SASD will be starting efforts to provide core standards for the benefit of the industry including integrated circuit design and test systems, arithmetic, microprocessors, domain-specific accelerators such as error correction coding, video, and AI. These standards help enable the industry to move technology forward at a rapid pace to deliver amazing products to consumers. By working with the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA), IEEE CASS would be able to provide a globally open, inclusive, and transparent environment for market-relevant, voluntary consensus standardization, and other industry consensus activities in the Circuits and Systems area.
The mission of the SASD is to encourage all the relevant stakeholders to participate in standardization activities, to promote the use of IEEE standards, and to develop useful products that leverage IEEE standards within the scope of the CASS. This new initiative also promotes and fosters academic and industry participation by engaging a broader community by drawing members from various IEEE CASS Technical Committees (TC). Also, professionals or AdHoc industry groups who are actively working on standardization activities related to CASS are invited to bring their activities under the umbrella of IEEE CASS SASD to utilize the broader impact of IEEE Standards.

Nomination Documents

A complete nomination must include all items indicated by an asterisk in the nomination form. These items include data for the Candidate and the Nominator, a Candidate Photo, a Candidate Biography (limited to 700 words), which needs to describe the most important contributions of the candidate (in IEEE or in other organizations that are related to standards) which makes him/her particularly suitable for being the voting members of SASD.

Nomination Submission

The nomination form must be submitted by 21 November 2021 through the CASS website.

The Nominations Committee greatly encourages you to recommend suitable candidates for these elections. Our strength as a society is not only in our engineering expertise but also in our societal spirit including the sharing of information with each other. This we can do best when we have a strong organization with engaged members.
