Technical Committee Reorganization
During the last I²MTC in Pisa, Italy, 11 members from different Technical Committees (TC's) together with 3 members of the Technical and Standards Activities Committee met to discuss many topics related to technical committees. The society has been improving in most of its areas and now it is the time for TCs. In an effort to help chairs with their activities we analyzed their needs and also explained the different ways to relate to members of the AdCom so as to strengthen their initiatives. From now on we will try to work closer to our TC's.
Also during our Spring AdCom meeting in Pisa a number of TC's were closed since they showed no activity according to the procedures established last year on the evaluation on TCs. Effective now the following list of TCs are closed until new people and activities will appear.
10 February 1937 - 27 April 2015
It is with great sadness and sorrow that we inform you of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Mr. Frank Reyes. Frank was a long-time supporter of the I&M Society and selflessly gave his time and expertise by being a wonderful and effective volunteer serving as vice president for finance, secretary and an BoG member. Please stay tuned for an upcoming "In Memoriam" article in the Magazine and this web site about Frank, his life and his contributions to I&M Society and his profession. We all will miss Frank terribly.
I²MTC Board Report
In keeping with our mission to be the premier international gathering of all people involved in the I&M fields for disseminating and discussing the results of their technical activities, the I²MTC Board has chosen to change to a full paper, fully reviewed conference. The challenge has been to simultaneously make the conference more international by implementing a rotation among the regions or IEEE.
I²MTC 2015, held in Pisa Italy (Region 8) implemented the new review process for the first time and was a success by all counts. The conference featured 391 papers and hosted 421 registrants. 200 people attended one or more of the 15 tutorials presented on Monday. Authors were provided help in the transition from abstract submission to full paper submission with a 2 step review process with initial feedback followed by resubmission. The same rigorous process will be followed in Taipei for I²MTC 2016.
Our rotation of the conference venue continues with Region 10 (Taipei) in 2016 and Natal, Brazil (Region 9) in 2017. During the meeting, the board heard bids from Spain, Portugal, and England for I²MTC 2018 to be held in Region 8 completing the rotation. The decision will be made at a future meeting of the Board. Our rotation successfully encourages participation of members in each region, making I²MTC truly an International Instrumentation and Measurement Technical Conference.
