The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) promotes the advancement of science, technology and applications in communications and related disciplines. It fosters presentation and exchange of information among its members and the technical community throughout the world. The Society maintains a high standard of professionalism and technical competency.[2] The IEEE Communications Society is a professional society of the IEEE. The IEEE Communications Society sponsors several conferences every year such as the International Conference on Communications (ICC) and Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM),[3] and operates over 200 local chapters around the world.[4] It coordinates the operation of several councils, task forces, and technical committees, e.g. the Internet Technical Committee. The society participates in educational activities (including distance learning) and in accreditation of higher education programs within its fields of interest (including Computer Science and Computer Engineering). It operates about a dozen working groups and committees on the development of industrial standards.


IEEE communication society was established on 2015, under the electronics and communication department of Vimal Jyothi Engineering College. Dr.Jithendranath Mungara Dean of PG studies at R V College of Engineering ,Coimbatore inaugurated the ceremony. It is one of the most vibrant society for the students to develop their technical skills and capabilities by attending workshops, trainings etc. conducted by the communication society. Students are given guidelines by their professors for future planning’s.


Founded in 1952 with the formation of IRE’s (the Institute of Radio Engineers) Professional Group on Communications Systems (PGCS), IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) has evolved into a diverse group of global industry professionals with a common interest in advancing all communications technologies. Members interact across international and technological borders to:

  • Produce publications
  • Organize conferences
  • Foster educational programs
  • Promote local activities
  • Work on technical committees

Since IEEE ComSoc began operations in January 1972 as an independent Society of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) with over 8,800 members, IEEE ComSoc has become the premier international forum for the exchange of ideas on communications technologies and information networking. IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE ICC, and other conferences have earned international reputations. Publications increasingly support local and international coverage of important issues, and the Board of Governors reflects the changing direction of global communications technology.

IEEE ComSoc is a leading global community comprised of a diverse group of industry professionals with a common interest in advancing all communications technologies. To that end, the Society sponsors publications, conferences, educational programs, local activities, and technical committees that:

  • Foster original work in all aspects of communications science, engineering, and technology
  • Encourage the development of applications that use signals to transfer voice, data, image, and/or video information between locations
  • Promote the theory and use of systems involving all types of terminals, computers, and information processors; all pertinent systems and operations that facilitate transfer; all transmission media; switched and unswitched networks; and network layouts, protocols, architectures, and implementations
  • Strongly advance developments toward meeting new market demands in systems, products, and technologies such as personal communications services, multimedia communications systems, enterprise networks, and optical communications systems
