IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE’s highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.
Association for Computing Machinery
ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, http://www.acm.org, is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting computing educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM strengthens the computing profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence.
ACM supports the professional growth of its members by providing opportunities for life-long learning, career development, and professional networking. ACM provides the computing field’s premier Digital Library DL), an invaluable online resource of over two million fully searchable pages of text, including a 50+ year archive, from ACM’s high-quality journals and proceedings. The DL also reaches the entire world of computing through the fully integrated Guide to Computing Literature. ACM’s 37 Special Interest Groups SIGs) focus on different computing disciplines. More than half of all ACM members join one or more of these Special Interest Groups. The SIGs publish newsletters and sponsor important conferences such as SIGGRAPH, SPLASH including OOPSLA, DAC, ICCAD and CHI, giving members opportunities to meet experts in their fields of interest and network with other knowledgeable members.

ACM/SIGDA, Special Interest Group on Design Automation) provides a broad array of resources to our members, to students, professors, industry professionals and, to the EDA field in general. SIGDA sponsors various events to promote interaction among the community to share the latest technical and professional advances. It also serves as a forum to support events that nurture new ideas and infuse vitality into new emerging trends in the field.
SIGDA has a long history of supporting conferences and the EDA profession including ICCAD, DAC, DATE, and ASP-DAC, plus around 15 focused symposia and workshops. SIGDA supports various events such as - the Univ. Research Demonstration that helps to foster interactions between students and industry; Design Automation Summer School that exposes students to trending topics; Young Faculty Workshops; Ph.D. Forums in conjunction with major conferences, design contests such as CAD Athlon. SIGDA funds various scholarships and recognizes outstanding research publications. Awards recognize significant contributions at all stages of the professional career from student awards to the Pioneer Award for Lifetime achievement. SIGDA has launched new programs such as SIGDA Live, a series of monthly webinars on topics of general interest to the SIGDA community and a more global E-Newsletter with a newly formed editorial board. SIGDA also supports local chapters that help with professional networking. SIGDA also administrates Student Research Competition on behalf of ACM.
SIGDA pioneered electronic publishing of EDA literature, beginning with the DA Library in 1989. SIGDA also provides strong support for the ACM journal TODAES Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems). Major benefits provided to SIGDA members include free access to all SIGDA sponsored publications in the ACM Digital Library, and reduced registration rates for SIGDA sponsored events.

The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) was established to foster design automation of electronic circuits and systems at all levels. The Council's field of interest spans the theory, implementation, and use of EDA/CAD tools to design integrated electronic circuits and systems. This includes tools that automate all levels of the design, analysis, and verification of hardware and embedded software up to and including complete working systems.
CEDA enables the exchange of technical information by means of publications, conferences, workshops, and volunteer activities.
As an organizational unit (OU) of IEEE, CEDA has seven member societies, namely: Antennas and Propagation, Circuits and Systems, Computer, Electron Devices, Electronics Packaging, Microwave Theory &Techniques, and Solid-State Circuits Societies.
The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society’s field of interest spans the theory, analysis, design computer aided design), and practical implementation of circuits, and the application of circuit theoretic techniques to systems and to signal processing. The coverage of this field includes the spectrum of activities from, and including, basic scientific theory to industrial applications.
The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society CASS) believes that the Grand Engineering Challenges of the 21st century can only be addressed in an inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary manner. The Society’s unique and profound expertise in Circuits, Systems, Signals, Modeling, Analysis, and Design can have a decisive impact on important issues such as Sustainable Energy, Bio-Health, Green Information Technology, Nano-Technology, and Scalable Information Technology Systems. Our mission is to foster CASS members across disciplines to address humanity’s grand challenges by conceiving and pioneering solutions to fundamental and applied problems in circuits and systems.
