Find a Local SSIT Group

SSIT welcomes all persons interested in the Impact of Technology on Society.

We have local groups, called chapters. There is a list below, and also you can find these via IEEE’s regional map structure.

SSIT is currently represented internationally by 23 Chapters/Joint Chapters spanning 14 countries as listed below. “Chapters” are local groups with an interest in a specific IEEE Society, such as the Society on Social Implications of Technology (SSIT). A chapter can be “stand alone” (formed with 12 or more interested members) or can be a “joint chapter” with another or several other IEEE SocietiesEnter all page copy here (add images in the field below)

To contact a Chapter, either send an email to the Chapter Chair by clicking on that person’s name, or visit the Chapter’s website/webpage by clicking on the Chapter name (note: currently only a few Chapters have their own website or webpage).
