The IEEE Consumer Electronics Society (CE Society or CESoc) is a professional society of the IEEE that focuses on the "theory and practice of Electronic Engineering and of the allied arts and sciences with respect to the field of Consumer Electronics and the maintenance of a high professional standing among its members".[1] Wahab Almuhtadi is the current president of the IEEE CE society.[2][3]


In 1983, the IEEE Broadcast, Cable and Consumer Electronics Society was broken apart into two societies, the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society and the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society.[4]

Field of Interest

The field of interest of the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society is engineering and research aspects of the theory, design, construction, manufacture or end use of mass market electronics, systems, software and services for consumers.[5]


The IEEE CE Society produces a number of publications, including the following:[6]

  • Consumer Electronics Society's Newsletter[7]
  • IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine[8][9][10]

IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine is an award-winning periodical which has received multiple awards:

  • The IEEE International Symposium on Consumer Electronics (ISCE) is also an annual event typically organized by the society's international chapters.
  • The IEEE Games, Entertainment, Media Conference (IEEE GEM) is an annual event focusing on innovative research in games technologies and to make these technologies more accessible to academia and industry. The conference was named The IEEE International Games Innovations Conference (IGIC) before.
  • The IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics—Berlin (ICCE-Berlin) is an annual regional conference focusing on consumer electronics
  • The IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics—Taiwan (ICCE-Taiwan) is an annual regional conference focusing on consumer electronics
