IEEE Senior Membership
IEEE Senior Membership is the highest grade for which application may be made and requires experience reflecting professional maturity. Candidates need to be an engineer, scientist, educator, technical executive, or originator in IEEE-designated fields in professional practice for at least ten years and shall have shown significant performance over a period of at least five of those years.

An application for Senior Membership requires three references unless nominated by a Senior member, and in that case requires two references.

Attention Book Authors

Advertise your book on the I&M website! The Instrumentation and Measurement Society would like to provide a list of book titles written by IMS authors on the I&M website. The Society believes that books are an excellent avenue to disseminate the most advanced state-of-the art within and outside of the community and that the website will help to spread the good news about the hard work of the authors. The guidance here govern which titles will be displayed. We look forward to your contributions! Visit our website for terms and guidelines.

I&M With Smart Grid

Instrumentation and Measurement Society is one of the 13 partners within the IEEE Smart Grid community! Our members have free access to the First IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter Compendium "Smart Grid: The Next Decade," the first of its kind promotional compilation featuring 32 "best of the best" insightful articles from recent issues of the IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter.

Currently the IEEE Smart Grid Operations Committee has several subcommittees (R&D, Education, Standardization etc.) and volunteers from our Society are needed to contribute to a better understanding of the role of measurements in shaping the future grids. Please contact Mihaela Albu at albu@ieee.org for further details.

Kim Fowler Gives Instrumentation Tutorial in Malaysia

Kim Fowler spoke to a group of 16 colleagues and graduate students in Malaysia on Saturday, 8 August. He talked for two and a half hours on the basic principles of measurement and instrumentation and some practical applications for developing instruments. The venue was the University of Technology Malaysia or UTM. His host was Professor Sheroz Khan from the International Islamic University Malaysia. The audience comprised members of Professor Khan's research group and of the local IEEE Chapter. Together they provided an excellent venue with lovely food for a break and lunch. Read more.
