About the IEEE Industry Applications Society Newsletter
Thank you for reading this issue of the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) Newsletter. If you have IAS-specific news to share with your IAS colleagues please send us an email for possible future publication in an upcoming newsletter.
Did You Know?
"Did You Know" is a new column focused on benefits and inforamtion for IAS members. Each month we will offer a few facts about a different topic. Next month's topic will be Social Media.
IAS members have access to online member benefits such as:
Call for Papers - IAS Annual Meeting
The 2017 IEEE Industry Applications Society Annual Meeting will address the technical interests related to industrial applications of electrical energy. Meeting papers are solicited on subjects pertaining to the scope of the participating Technical Committees of the IEEE Industry Applications Society, as listed on our Call for Papers.
New Offering for IAS Members
In an effort to increase member benefits, IAS has created the IAS Resource Center. This Resource Center will house technical information such as webinars, slides and white papers. IAS members will be requested to sign in to access this information. Anyone that is not an active member of IAS will be charged a fee to access this information.
If there is information that you would like to see in the Resource Center, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 31 January 2017.
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.
Our next webinar, "AC vs. DC: Resurrection of Westinghouse and Edison debate" will be held 1 February 2017. Prof. M. Rezwan Khan will be the speaker.
To register for the webinar, please visit our website.
If you have any comments about the webinar program, or would like a particular topic addressed, please send an email to email@example.com.

The 6th International Youth Conference on Energy (IYCE) will be held In Budapest, Hungary, 21-24 June 2017.
Our main aim is to provide an opportunity to young professionals (undergraduate, MSc, PhD students and entrant engineers) to present their work in a friendly international environment, to enjoy Budapest and to make new connections for the future. Contributions are welcomed from any field related to energy and power engineering. For additional information, please visit our website.
Final papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.
Awareness and Prevention of Electric Accidents Video Available on IEEE.tv
The Global Overhead Powerline Safety Awareness Project (OPSAP), funded by IAS, has reached the first milestone by producing a video. IEEE SIGHT (Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology) will serve as its pilot in Hyderabad, India. SIGHT OPSAP-Hyderabad aims to reduce injuries and fatalities from overhead power lines. Satish Chaparala will manage the pilot with local support from the Hyderabad IEEE Section and the IAS/PES Chapter. The video can be found on the IEEE.tv website; members are encouraged to watch the video and socialize the video within their Chapters and universities.
IAS Chapters and Membership Department (CMD) New Milestone
by Dave Durocher, IAS President
A milestone have been reached for the IEEE Industry Applications Society. Dr. Peter Magyar and his top notch CMD Team have officially signed on our 100th IAS Chapter during 2015-2016, the two years of my time serving as IAS President. Assuming you read my President's Message in the Nov-Dec 2016 Industry Applications Magazine, you saw my article stating that "During the past two years, we added more than 100 new IAS Chapters, primarily Student Brach Chapters across Regions 8-10." I submitted this article to Lanny Floyd on 25 July 2016, so for the record, I was taking a little risk in assuming Peter would not stop working over the last five months of the year. In grand fashion, he crossed the finish line with over a month to spare. Congratulations!
