IAS 2018 Fellows
IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation. The IAS Board and Membership would like to congratulate the following IAS members who have been elevated to IEEE Fellows for 2018:
Overlength Page Charges Coming Into Effect
At its October 2017 meeting, the IAS Executive Board adopted a policy to impose an overlength charge on exceptionally long papers published in IEEE Industry Applications Magazine (M-IA) and IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications (T-IA). Here are some details on how that practice will be implemented:
Myron Zucker Student-Faculty Grant Program
The Industry Application Society is soliciting interested parties to submit proposals to the Myron Zucker Student Faculty Grant Program. The deadline for application submission is 28 February 2018.
Adhering to Mr. Zucker's goal, the principal objectives of the Student-Faculty Grant Program are:
The project must be designed to produce publishable results in one year (12 months). The preferred period of performance for these 12 months is 1 September through 31 August of the following year. The funding is such that approximately two grants, not exceeding US$25,000 each, can be awarded during each annual proposal cycle. This endowment is the programs' only funding source; no other sources, including IEEE Membership dues, are used. Visit our website to view the program guidelines and the program application.
IAS Chapters and Membership Department (CMD) Roster
The IAS Chapters and Membership Department announces the 2018-2019 Chapter Area Chairs which cover all ten IEEE Regions. The full roster with contact information available on our website.
2018 IEEE Industry Applications Annual Meeting
The 2018 IEEE Industry Applications Society Annual Meeting will be held 23-27 September 2018 in Portland, OR, USA. This meeting will address the technical interests related to industrial applications of electrical energy.

Annual Meeting papers are solicited on subjects pertaining to the scope of the participating Technical Committees of the IEEE Industry Applications Society, as listed in the annual meeting website below. For papers, draft manuscripts (NOT abstracts or digests alone) should be submitted by email to the individuals identified in the annual meeting website below. Proposals for Tutorials (which may range from 4 to 8 hours) should include a detailed outline as well as a list of presenters and their credentials.
For this session of Annual Meeting the IAS has formed two new working groups; the "Data Center working group" and the "Working Group for Nuclear Applications." The Society is interested in author submissions to support both our traditional technical committees and also these two new Working Groups in support of or traditionally strong technical program for the 2018 IEEE IAS Annual Meeting.
Full Paper Submission: 15 March 2018
Author Notification: 15 May 2018
