I&M Conference Calendar
We hold numerous workshops throughout the year. Please refer to the I&M Conference website for a full listing.
For more information on any of the conferences, please contact Mark Yeary, VP of Conferences for the I&M Society.
IEEE Sensors Applications Symposium (SAS) will be held 13-15 March 2017 in Glassboro, NJ, USA. It is a unique opportunity for researchers and developers working in the field of sensors and their applications. General and special sessions will be dedicated to sharing experience and knowledge in the field of sensor technologies, sensing methodologies and applications for sensors as well as the role and the use of sensors in strategic fields ranging from environment monitoring to ambient assisted living. A strong effort will also be dedicated to promote networking activities through formal and informal events.
You are invited to submit papers for this conference. Topics include, but are not limited to:
Final Paper Submission: 14 November 2016

2017 IEEE International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference (I2MTC) will be held in Torino, Italy, 22-25 May 2017. The conference will be held on the Politecnico di Torino campus, with Marco Parvis and Sabrina Grassini serving as the Conference General Co-Chairs.
Detailed information about I2MTC 2017 is posted on the I2MTC website.
The 10th International Conference on Sensing Technology (ICST 2016) will be held 11-13 November 2016 in Nanjing, China.
Nanjing is the capital of Jiangsu Province in East China. Running through the city are the lower reaches of the Yangtze River whose estuary is not far away. Nanjing enjoys a civilization of over 6000 years, and the city itself was founded 2500 years ago. Enclosed by mountains and rivers, and located in a strategic place, it boasts picturesque scenery that blends natural landscape with towering modern buildings, integrating traditional styles with modern civilization. Thus it has long been known to the world as a unique historic and cultural city.
The 16th Mediterranean Microwave Symposium (MMS2016) will be held at Al Ain University of Science and Technology (AAU), in Abu Dhabi City in United Arab Emirates (UAE) 14-16 November 2016.
The goal of the MMS2016 is to provide an excellent opportunity to present research progress and recent developments in radio-frequency (RF), microwave related topics, antenna technologies, wireless communications, and in a broad range of high-frequency topics, including terahertz and photonic technologies. The experts will be able to discuss/present the latest product, information, and technology solutions in the RF and microwave industry. The MMS2016 will have featured keynote talks, special sessions, poster presentation, tutorials, and workshops.

Spotlight on the Benefits of Technical Co-Sponsorship
I&M offers two types of sponsorship: Technical and Financial. In this issue, we would like to briefly focus on technical co-sponsorship. The main benefit of technical co-sponsorship is the knowledge that I&M members share about the field of instrumentation and measurement. Other benefits are:
Report from I&M Education Committee
Updated Video Content
The Instrumentation & Measurement Channel on IEEE.tv has been updated to better focus on the scope and field of interest of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society. We have also updated the Educational Video Tutorial section on the I&M website; it is now showing video tutorials.
On these sites, you can find fifteen exciting videos, including eight new video tutorials recently recorded by top experts in the field. Five of them cover interesting hot topics in the field of sensors and sensor networks, one is focused on how sensors and measurement systems can be inspired by nature, and one presents a new hot topic in metrology: forensic metrology.Visit these pages and enjoy the videos.
The video tutorials are separated in two main classes: The Expert and the Classroom series.
Expert series video tutorials cover advanced topics in the area of I&M and are given by well-known experts in the specific field. Classroom video tutorials are presented by students (with the supervision of the Professor) and focus on theoretical or experimental aspects of basic knowledge in the I&M field.
Invitation to submit Instrumentation & Measurement Video Tutorials
If you wish to submit a proposal for a new video in either the Expert series or Classroom series please visit our website.
Your proposal will be reviewed by the Editorial board with the help of expert reviewers. If accepted, you may record your video with your own audio/video facilities or attend one of the video recording stages that will be organized at selected I&M conferences.
I&M Distinguished Lecturer Program
The I&M Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) supports our Chapters, members, and those interested in the I&M field by providing Distinguished Lecturers (DLs) for approved meetings, events, and conference keynotes.
Currently I&M has twelve active DLs and more than twenty (completed and upcoming) approved DL events taking place all over the world. The next few events take place in Thailand (DL Prof. Pedro Silva Girao), China (DL Prof. Octavian Postolache), and Romania (DL Prof. Octavian Postolache). For more information, please visit our website or contact the DLP Chair, Kristen Donnell.
Call for Participation in I&M Technical Committees
I&M has various Technical Committees (TC). Our TC's define and implement the technical directions of the Society. As a fundamental element of the Society all members are invited - and encouraged - to participate in one or more of its technical committees. Please reach out to Ruqiang Yan, VP Technical and Standards Activities or any member of the Technical and Standards Activities Committee if you are interested in membership in one or more of our TC's. You can also fill out an application form and send to the chair of your interested TC's. To view the complete list of TC's, visit our website.
Recognition of Technical Achievements and Innovations - Announcement of Issued Patents
We would like to recognize I&M Society member technical achievements and innovations that have resulted in issued patents during the current calendar year. If you have been issued a patent in 2016 we wish to add it to the list. To do so please fill out this form and we will add the information to our website. In addition, if you are issued a patent in the future please use the same link to inform us and we will add it to the list as we intend to keep this list continuously updated.
National Science Foundation (NSF) Announces New Program and Seeks Proposals
NSF has recently announced a new program, entitled "Smart and Autonomous Systems (S&AS)." The program focuses on Intelligent Physical Systems (IPS) that are cognizant, taskable, reflective, ethical, and knowledge-rich. The S&AS program welcomes research on IPS that are aware of their capabilities and limitations, leading to long-term autonomy requiring minimal or no human operator intervention.Z
Examples of IPS include, but are not limited to, robotic platforms and networked systems that combine computing, sensing, communication, and actuation. Cognizant IPS exhibit high-level awareness beyond primitive actions, in support of persistent and long-term autonomy.
The deadline for proposals is 19 December 2017. The solicitation is open to universities, colleges, and non-profit research organizations located in the United States. More information can be found on their website. A webinar and FAQ are being prepared, and information will be listed on the program website when available.
