Overview: The IEEE CIS maintains a standing history committee that reports to the president of CIS. The composition of the committee for calendar year 2018 is shown in Table 1.
Mission: The charge of the history committee is to create, maintain and update a running history of the important events associated with the Society. The history center is the focus of our repository for historical records, and can be accessed here.
Operation: Records at the history center are open files. Any contributor can make contributions to our historical records at any time. Volunteered contributions, updates, corrections and suggestions are welcome. Contributors are encouraged to submit their suggestions to the chair of the history committee, who will present them to the committee at its next meeting. Contributions will be added to our records upon recommendation by the history committee, and approval by the administrative committee of the society.
