About the IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter
The IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter includes news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of IEEE Sensors Journal.
As I am writing this message, I am preparing to go to Lake Como, Italy to the IEEE Sensors Council's INERTIAL conference. The IEEE International Symposium on Inertial Sensors and Systems is in its fifth edition in 2018, and is expecting a record attendance. In just a few years, this event has managed to build a strong following of research from industry, government and academia, who converge every year to discuss the latest advances in inertial Sensors. This is thanks to the relentless efforts of a dedicated teams of volunteers, including founding chair and Sensors Council President Elect Andrei Shkel. I am looking forward to what is bound to be an exciting meeting!
When it comes to meetings for our sensors community, our flagship conference IEEE SENSORS 2018 will be held in New Delhi, India, 28-31 October 2018. Volunteers on the organizing committee are hard at work to make sure to prepare an outstanding conference, including presented papers, keynotes, tutorials, an industry program and several other events. While the conference itself is still quite some time in the future, the deadline to propose tutorials and focused session is 6 May 2018.
Starting in 2018, the IEEE Sensors Council will have nine Distinguished Lecturers. Three new Distinguished Lecturers (DL) have just been approved as detailed below, to complete our roster of internationally recognized speakers. I would like to sincerely thank our three new DLs for their commitment to the IEEE Sensors Council and their future work with our community all over the world!
At the most recent Administrative Committee (AdCom) meeting of the IEEE Sensors Council, elections were held for two officer positions and two Member-at-Large (MAL) positions on the AdCom starting in 2019. I want to congratulate the newly-elected officers and MALs and welcome them to our AdCom (a full election report is included in this newsletter), but I also want to sincerely thank all the candidates for this election, for their willingness to stand for election and the demonstration they have made of their commitment to volunteering with the Council.
At the same AdCom meeting, the Sensors Council, much like many other IEEE units, unanimously passed a motion to reaffirm our core values, and to clearly denounce discrimination and harassment. The motion reads as follows:
IEEE members are committed to the highest standards of integrity, responsible behavior, and ethical and professional conduct. The IEEE Sensors Council reaffirms its commitment to an environment free of discrimination and harassment as stated in the IEEE Code of Conduct, IEEE Code of Ethics, and IEEE Nondiscrimination Policy.
It is important for all of us to remember the importance of these shared values, and to make sure that we adopt behaviors within and outside IEEE that reflect them. The strength of IEEE is in the communities it creates, and it the diversity of these communities.
I hope that you will find reading this newsletter interesting; as always, your comments and suggestions are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
