About the IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter
The IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter includes time sensitive news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of IEEE Sensors Journal.
IEEE Virtual Conference on Applications of Commercial Sensors (VCACS):
There is a new "maker" generation of young engineers that is attracting a lot of attention from electronics manufacturers and distributors. These "makers" like to build prototype devices that do interesting things. When they get to college, they often work in teams that build electronic systems with sensors that can connect to the Internet of Things. How can they publish their work? This new conference (sponsored by the IEEE Sensors Council and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society) will be of interest to those students and young professionals who have completed team projects that include microprocessors and sensors. If those projects produced working prototypes, the teams may submit a manuscript to our virtual conference. NC State University is providing the conference website:
Submissions close 15 October. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published in IEEE Xplore. Presentations will be recorded and posted on the VCACS website. Questions for the speakers will be transmitted via Twitter. Registration for all participants is free, and no travel costs are associated with this virtual event. Please participate and help us refine this new virtual format for conferences.
Call for Nominations for Sensors Council Officers
The Sensors Council Nominations and Appointments Committee requests nominations for qualified individuals to fill the following Council officer positions for the 2016-2017 term:
IEEE SENSORS Conference
IEEE SENSORS 2015 will be held 1-4 November 2015 in Busan, Korea. Conference registration is now open for IEEE SENSORS 2015. Visit the registration page for details.
IEEE SENSORS 2015 has added Professional Development Special Sessions
At the request of attendees of past IEEE SENSORS Conferences, the Sensors Council is organizing two Special Sessions on Professional development to be held Tuesday, 3 November 2016. The plans for those sessions are listed below:
PDP Session 1 (Room 208, 2:00-3:30PM)
IEEE SENSORS 2015 has added an Industry Track
IEEE SENSORS 2015 will feature a new full-day Industry Track Wednesday, 4 November. Here are some of the speakers in that program:
IEEE SENSORS 2015 Live Demonstrations - New event!
Invitations have been issued to SENSORS 2015 authors of accepted papers offering them the opportunity to bring hardware devices and software applications to the conference to be demonstrated in the Exhibit Hall. Live Demonstrations have been very successful in several IEEE conferences offered by some of the Council Member Societies. Conference attendees will be invited to experience the demonstrations directly, to interact, play with, and challenge them. Presenters have the opportunity to show direct proof of their working systems and to create a lasting impression for event attendees. We hope to make this another exciting feature of future IEEE SENSORS Conferences. Please see the 2015 Call for Live Demonstrations.
IEEE SENSORS 2016 will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA from 30 October - 3 November 2016. Visit our website for more information.
IEEE SENSORS 2017 will be held in Glasgow, Scotland.
Member Society Spotlight
The Sensors Council currently has 24 member societies. Each quarter we will feature a number of our member societies in the "Member Society Spotlight." To view a full list of our member societies, visit our website.
This quarter, we are featuring the Industrial Electronics Society and the Vehicular Technology Society.
The Industrial Electronics Society (IES) encompasses a diverse range of technical activities devoted to the application of electronics and electrical sciences for the enhancement of industrial and manufacturing processes. These technical activities address the latest developments in intelligent and computer control systems, robotics, factory communications and automation, flexible manufacturing, data acquisition and signal processing, vision systems, and power electronics.
The vision of the IES is to advance global prosperity by fostering technological innovation, enabling members' careers and promoting community worldwide. The IES promotes the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.
The Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) is "connecting the mobile world," as our tagline implies. With a long and rich history in land mobile radio, motor vehicles, wireless communication or land transportation, VTS has been at the forefront of the development of cellular communications, train signaling standards or more recently connected vehicles. VTS offers a wide variety of means of the dissemination and creation of knowledge, including a vibrant standards portfolio, several flagship conferences, a magazine, the highly-cited Transactions on Vehicular Technologies, as well as one of the largest Distinguished Lecturer programs in IEEE with more than 50 speakers.
IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things 2015
The 2nd IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things 2015 (WF-IoT) will take place from 14-16 December 2015 in Milan, Italy. The organizing committee seeks contributions on how to nurture and cultivate IoT technologies and applications for the benefit of society. To view details on submitting materials, visit the conference website.
IEEE History Center Fund
The Sensors Council is donating US$24K to the IEEE History Center Fund for the purpose of documenting IEEE's history since 1984, the last year a history of the organization was written.
The IEEE History Center Fund supports the public visibility efforts of the IEEE History Center to collect and disseminate information that exemplifies the impact and influence of technology and its relationship, both past and present, to society.
Please donate online at http://www.ieee.org/donate.
