About ComSoc SCV

    The IEEE Communications Society promotes the advancement of science, technology and applications in communications and related disciplines. The Santa Clara Valley chapter (ComSoc SCV) is a very active chapter which holds monthly meetings (usually in the TI auditorium on the second Wednesday of each month) on topics relating to communcation systems. The chapter also hosts and sponsors other events including workshops and field trips.
In 2013 ComSoc SCV was voted
“Best IEEE Chapter in the Santa Clara Valley Section”

    ComSoc SCV is run by a small and intrepid band of (unpaid) volunteers. We are always looking for more help — time and effort (from individuals) and financial (from corporate sponsors). Please contact us if you'd like to help.
