Members are offered a wide range of benefits and support services.
Each member receives the IEEE Control Systems Magazine, considered to be one of the most interesting and readable publications devoted to systems and control. Members also receive the IEEE Spectrum and the IEEE Institute, as well as discounts on IEEE publications, IEEE education courses and tutorials, and IEEE sponsored conferences.
The Control Systems Society produces two other technical publications: the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, which is the premier archival journal in the field of systems and control, and the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, which is dedicated to the publication of high-quality papers on advances in control systems engineering. Subscriptions to these two journals also provide Web access to same-year issues through IEEE XPlore.
Local chapters of the IEEE CSS exist in all regions of the world. The local chapters provide a forum for presentation and discussion of new ideas in systems and control, as well as a source of information about the IEEE and Control System Society. The CSS provides numerous services to support the activities of these chapters.
The Society also sponsors numerous conferences, workshops and seminars throughout the world. The principal meeting of the CSS, the IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, is held in December each year in locations throughout the world. The annual IEEE Multi-Conference on Systems and Control is dedicated to bridging the gap between the theory and practice of control systems engineering. The CSS is also one of the sponsoring societies of the American Control Conference.
