IEEE SA helps to foster new and emerging technologies that have real-world applications.

IEEE Standards Association Initiatives

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) is a home for new and emerging technologies activities and consensus work. As industry continues to innovate and expand the possibilities of what technology can do for humanity, the IEEE SA is identifying opportunities to explore rapidly evolving technologies, the need for interoperability and consensus building via an open, transparent, and proven process. 

IEEE has focused efforts in the following technology areas:
