The IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology is a professional society of the IEEE.[1][2][3][4] The society's Field of Interest is, according to its constitution;

"the impact of technology (as embodied by the fields of interest of IEEE) on society, including both positive and negative effects, the impact of society on the engineering profession, the history of the societal aspects of electro technology, and professional social and economic responsibility in the practice of engineering and its related technology,"[5]

The society was founded in 1972 as the Committee on Social Implications of Technology. It was given its current name in 1982.[6]

Publications and activities[edit]

The society publishes an award-winning magazine entitled IEEE Technology & Society Magazine.[7] It also sponsors an annual conference, the International Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS).[8][9][10] and organizes talks about the social implications of technology.[11]
