Emerging Technologies

Subcommittees provide a vehicle for developing and growing new technology directions in emerging areas that are of high interest to ComSoc members. These subcommittees may form for just a few years around a "hot" short-lived topic or may evolve into a ComSoc technical committee for areas with a long time-horizon of interest and development.

The members of these various subcommittees organize a range of activities to promote their technical area and they also may serve as technical co- sponsors for Comsoc conferences and publications.

The subcommittees are evaluated periodically by the Emerging Technologies Standing Committee which determines whether the subcommittee has potential to eventually evolve into a full-fledged technical committee under the Society's Technical Affairs Council (TAC).
