Society on Social Implications of Technology Chapter

Welcome to the Society on Social Implications of Technology – Australian Chapter


Engineers and other technologists play a major role in the world today. So it isn’t surprising that an organisation such as IEEE has a Society on the Social Implications of Technology (SSIT). In Australia a local SSIT Chapter was established on the 9th of December 2005. We hold committee meetings with representatives from Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Perth, Brisbane, Wollongong and Geelong,¬†and organise regular public activities around issues of interest to both engineering and non-engineering audiences. At present our areas of interest include technology usage, technology and privacy, technology and development, sustainability and ethics in engineering education.

We welcome and encourage new members.

We encourage you to attend the IEEE 2012 Conference on Technology and Society in Asia, Singapore 27-29 October.
