About the IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter
The IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter includes news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of IEEE Sensors Journal.
Greetings, and Happy New Year to you all! This time of year brings excitement in many areas and the IEEE Sensors Council is pleased to share news of many accomplishments as well as upcoming events that will be of interest to many in the sensors community.
IEEE Sensors Council President
IEEE SENSORS Conferences
IEEE SENSORS 2017 will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, USA, 29 October - 1 November 2017. Visit the website for more information.
IEEE Inertial Sensors 2017 conference will be held in Kauai, Hawaii 28-30 March 2017.
Registration is now open!
New For 2017: At the conference we are hosting a Women in Inertial Sensors Breakfast 29 March 2017 at 7:00 AM!
As this conference grows, it is important to build the community of women in inertial sensors. Breakfast will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Inertial 2017 Symposium, to be held at the Aqua Kauai Resort in Kauai, Hawaii, in the Jasmine Ballroom.
If you would like to attend, please contact Kari Moran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ISOCS/IEEE International Symposium On Olfaction and Electronic Nose (ISOEN) 2017 will be held in Montreal, Canada, 28-31 May 2017. Visit the website for more information. View the Call for Papers; the submission deadline is 15 January 2017.
IEEE Sensors Council Summer School
The IEEE Sensors Council invites you to join the 2nd Edition of its Summer School Series at the University of Limerick, Ireland 26-30 June 2017. Continuing the multi-disciplinary nature of last year's hugely successful Summer School, this school will focus its attention on optical fibre sensors. The school will feature a mix of lectures, keynote talks and poster sessions together with a number of networking opportunities for students to engage further with the lecturers.
Keynote lecturers include Prof. Michel Digonnet, Stanford University; Prof. Francis Berghmans, Vrije Universiteit Brussels; Prof. Brian Culshaw, University of Strathclyde; Prof. Andrea Cusano, University of Sannio, and Prof. Sile Nic Chormaic, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, with more to be confirmed.
The School will cover a wide range of topics, including:
IEEE Sensors Council Spring AdCom Meeting
The Sensors Council AdCom Spring meeting will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA 17-19 March 2017. Stay tuned for details from the meeting.
IEEE Sensors Journal Most Downloaded Papers
Each month, IEEE makes available the list of the 50 most downloaded IEEE Sensors Journal papers for the previous month. The latest list is now available.
Each quarter, authors of the most downloaded papers receive a letter from the Sensors Council President acknowledging them for their impressive accomplishment.
IEEE Sensors Journal Special Issue on Smart Sensors for Smart Grids and Smart Cities
The Call for Papers for IEEE Sensors Journal Special Issue on Smart Sensors for Smart Grids and Smart Cities is now open.
Submission Deadline: 31 March 2017.
ORCID To Be Required of Authors
Many author names in IEEE Xplore are not unique. For example, there are more than 60,000 authors whose last name is Kim, more than 30,000 whose last name is Zhang, and more than 10,000 each whose last name is Smith, Nguyen, Kumar or Singh. An author's name can also change; e.g., as a result of marriage.
How is one to determine which C. Park an author is when there are more than 13,780 C. Parks in IEEE Xplore? IEEE now requires an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) from authors of papers submitted to a periodical, with a similar requirement on conference submissions to follow. ORCID is a nonproprietary and persistent alphanumeric code to uniquely identify an author, just like the Digital Object Identifier (DOI), uniquely identifies each article with a nonproprietary and persistent alphanumeric code. An example of an ORCID is "orcid.org/0000-0002-2378-0113." Researchers may obtain an ORCID for free at https://orcid.org/register. Further information may be found at their website.
Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturers 2017-2019
The IEEE Sensors Council is proud to announce the IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturers (DL) 2017-2019.
Sandro Carrara, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)
Subhas Mukhopadhyay, Macquarie University
Jung-Chih Chiao, University of Texas at Arlington
The IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer Program details, including Distinguished Lecturer prerequisites, candidate evaluation criteria, and Lecturer appointment process, duties, and expectations are listed on our website.
IEEE Sensors Council Chapters
Chapters are organized by local groups with interest in promoting sensors. At present, Chapters are a fledgling program within the Council; however, the number is growing rapidly. Sensors Chapters are typically formed in partnership with leaders from multiple member societies that already have IEEE Chapters with sensors-related activities, and they see value in additional community organization around the topic of sensors. The primary support offered by the Council is assistance in starting and maintaining the Chapter as well as prioritization of Distinguished Lecturer travel to visit chapters. Chapters are also expected to serve as a nucleus for industry and standards-related activities, and eventually will likely play key roles in conferences. On the latter point, Chapters will be logical sources of strong bids to hold the annual conference, as they will have critical mass and an understanding of Sensors Council expectations for the flagship conference. Dr. Ramesh Ramadoss is the Chair of the Committee on development of Chapters.
IEEE Sensors Council New Logo and Tagline
We are proud to announce and display the new IEEE Sensors Council Logo.
