College of Computing professors Ron Arkin and Tom Conte have been elected to
three-year terms on the Boards of Governors for two IEEE (Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers) societies. Arkin will serve on the board for the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology (SSIT), and Conte was elected to the board of the IEEE Computer Society.

Arkin, a Regents' Professor in Interactive Computing whose research focus is in robotics, will serve as a
governor from 2010-12 for IEEE SSIT. The organization's 2,000 members worldwide address such issues as environmental, health and safety
implications of technology; engineering ethics and professional
responsibility; history of electrotechnology; technical expertise and
public policy; peace technology; and social issues related to energy,
information technology and telecommunications.

Conte, a professor who heads up the School of Computer Science's architecture group, also will serve a
2010-12 term as governor for the IEEE Computer Society, whose 85,000 members
work in a wide range of computing fields, from artificial intelligence
to networking, to software engineering and graphics processing.
