"Each person takes a different route in finding their passion and niche. Sometimes this route is immediately evident, and sometimes it contains obstacles. Come hear panelists discuss how they chose their research topic, their path after receiving their degree, where they hope to take their careers, and their pursuit of their passions."
Women in Instrumentation and Measurement (WIM) Panel
The WIM Panel will be held at I2MTC on Wednesday, 25 May at 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in room 202 at the TICC.
The Women in Instrumentation and Measurement (WIM) Panel is held each year at I2MTC. This is the 6th year we have held this important panel at I2MTC, and Dr. Kristen Donnell will be serving as the Panel Chair. We are also fortunate to have Dr. Bozenna Pasik-Duncan as our keynote speaker this year. In the past, topics of discussion have ranged from the history and influence of women in science, mentoring, gender bias and acceptance, amongst others. We look forward to seeing men and women attend our Panel to hear Dr. Pasik-Duncan discuss her experiences. For more information about the WIM Panel, please contact Kristen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

IMS Chapter News
IEEE IMS Romania Chapter organized the seminar "Synchronized measurements: Applications in modern power systems", held 7 April 2016 at Politehnica University in Bucharest, Romania. There were invited presentations from Arbiter Systems, Elpros, Romanian transport and distribution system operators and academia. The seminar wwas attended by more than 40 participants, 15 of them being IEEE and IMS members. IMS activity and initiatives have been also briefly presented and new student members have joined IMS and others added IEEE membership to their CIGRE volunteering.
On 8 April 2016, a seminar was presented by Alex McEachern (IEEE Fellow) from Power Standards Lab. His talk was devoted to power quality issues, including the new vision brought by Edition 3 of IEC 61000-4-30: "Power Quality Measurement Methods." The seminar was attended by 57 professionals from industry (invited) and academia.
