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 one of our upcoming newsletters.
IAS is proud to announce a monthly series of technical webinars on topics of current interest to the membership.
IAS has scheduled its second webinar for our Young Professional audience as well as professional development for our veteran members: How To Improve Your "Social" Life. The webinar will cover how IAS is currently using social media and how you can use social media in your professional career.
Past webinars and slides are available for view to IAS members.
IEEE IAS Myron Zucker Undergraduate Student Design Contest 2016
The scope of the Industry Applications Society as a transnational organization, is the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical and electronic engineering in the development, design, manufacture and application of electrical systems, apparatus, devices and controls to the processes and equipment of industry and commerce; the promotion of safe, reliable and economic installations; industry leadership in energy conservation and environmental, health and safety issues; the creation of voluntary engineering standards and recommended practices; and the professional development of its membership.
The Myron Zucker Undergraduate Student Design Contest is open to all IEEE Undergraduate student members. For the latest contest details and Design Contest 2016 Application, please visit the Chapter Promotion Programs, Awards and Contests website.
The contest includes two separate categories, individual design contest and team design contest.
The selected projects will be awarded by cash prizes, department prizes and travel aids to attend the IAS Annual Meeting.
Call for IAS Award Nominations
IAS is now accepting nominations for the following Society Level Awards:
The deadline for the nomination submission is 15 March 2016.
Self-nomination or nomination for any current executive board members is not acceptable.
Please note that the "Young Member Service Award" is a new Society-level award this year to recognize services/contributions made to society by our young professionals. These are all prestigious Society-level awards and I encourage you to participate in the nomination process in finding the most deserving candidate for each award.
Opening Ceremony of the "Antal (Tony) Bejczy Exhibition"
Opening Ceremony of the "Antal (Tony) Bejczy Exhibition" was held at the Center of Intelligent Robotics in Obuda University, Budapest, Hungary. The event was jointly organized by the Obuda University and the IEEE Hungary Section on 18 January 2016.
At this event, the IEEE Hungary Section Excellence Award 2015 was granted to Peter Magyar, IAS Chapters and Membership Department Chair.
Call for Papers-IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications
The IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications has scheduled a special issue on fault diagnosis of electric machines, power electronics and drives. This Special Issue aims to offer an insight into the state-of-the-art of diagnostics and condition monitoring of electrical machines, power electronics, adjustable speed drives and related areas. The fault diagnostics of electrical machines and drives has been the object of a significant amount of research work during the last few decades. Reducing maintenance costs and preventing unscheduled downtimes, which cause production and economic losses, are a priority for manufacturers and operators. Correct diagnosis and early detection of incipient faults lead to reduce maintenance costs and downtime for the process under consideration, and in many cases also prevent harmful and sometimes disruptive failures.
Guest Editor: Prof. Antonio J. Marques Cardoso, University of Beira Interior, Portugal
Submission of one-page abstract: 15 May 2016
Submission of manuscripts for review in S1M: 1 July 2016
Final Decision: 15 February 2017
Submission of final files for approved papers: 15 March 2017
