The agreement allows for reciprocal discounts on membership fees and other products and services to CSI’s over 20,000 members and IEEE CS’s one-lakh members. Both organizations have agreed to cooperate in developing conferences, forums, publications, electronic publishing initiatives and standards, educational materials and other services to meet the continuing development needs of technical professionals and to advance the profession worldwide.

CSI, President, AK Pathak, said, "This alliance will go a long way in improving technical value content to the nation and will improve access to world class information at the doorsteps of Indian Professionals." CSI, National Executive Director, Deepak Shikarpur, "This alliance marks the beginning of a new era of global co-operation.
