Spotlight on the Benefits of Technical Co-Sponsorship
The I&M Society is dedicated to provide worldwide, high quality conferences, symposia and workshops for all I&M colleagues throughout the year; disseminating and exchanging information concerning the science and application of instrumentation and measurement.
Seeing the energetic activities of local Chapters and members of TCs, we sincerely invite members of local Chapters and TCs and colleagues who are organizing conferences in instrumentation and measurement field to contact the I&M Conference committee for possible technical cosponsor on developing special tracks, paper-reviewing-procedure improvement, conference promotion, and conference organization.
The purposes of looking for cooperation with all potential conference organizers is to benefit I&M members by providing high quality technical events of emerging techniques. The conference will obtain the following privilege benefits provided by I&M:
We believe the co-sponsorship can make each conference a high-quality technical event which benefits both the conference organizers and I&M members. More detailed benefits of I&M co-sponsorship can be founded in I&M Society Conferences Management Guidelines which is available in I&M Website.
For the coming I&M sponsored conferences, please refer to the I&M Conference website for a full listing. For more information on any of the conferences, please contact Chi Hung Hwang, VP of Conferences for the I&M Society.

The IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society has revamped Educational Video Tutorials.
The Instrumentation & Measurement Channel on IEEE.tv has been updated and better focused on the scope and field of interest of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society as well as the Educational Video Tutorial section of the I&M website that is now showing the new Video Tutorials.
Here you can find 15 exciting videos, including 8 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.
Please, visit these pages and enjoy the videos.
Video tutorials are separated in two main classes: Expert series and Classroom series.
Expert series video tutorials cover advanced topics in the area of Instrumentation and Measurements and are given by very well know 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 either "Expert series" or "Classroom series" please visit the related page on the Instrumentation & Measurement Society web page.
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.
