About

The IEEE Sweden VT/COM/IT joint chapter is a national branch of the IEEE Societies: Vehicular Technology, Communications and Information Theory. We aim to maintain and develop the academic and industrial communities in these areas and the relation between them, with an extra focus on our members.
We organise technical and industrial seminars in varying locations in Sweden with distinguished speakers. These events keeps our community up to date on discoveries and trends in our areas as well as provides networking opportunities. We have also initiated two annual Swedish workshops, The Swedish Communication Technologies Workshop (Swe-CTW) and Workshop on Wireless Vehicular Communications (WWVC), that provide a forum for our members to share their work with each other.
These efforts have been recognised by the IEEE societies in form of a number of awards.
