IEEE Virtual Conference on Applications of Commercial Sensors (IEEE VCACS)
This new virtual conference series is focused on Young Professionals and students who have produced working electronic prototypes for interesting applications using sensors and microprocessors.
IEEE VCACS 2016 paper and presentation submissions are now open.
Please visit the VCACS 2016 website for more information.
IEEE SENSORS 2019 Bid Package Information
Our goal is to select conference venues three years in advance. IEEE SENSORS 2019 will be held in IEEE Region 7, 8, and 9 (the Americas). Decisions about future locations are made by the IEEE Sensors Council Administrative Committee at the IEEE SENSORS Conference (usually held in November). Letters of Intent to bid for SENSORS 2019 will be accepted through 1 May 2016. Those selected to submit formal bids will be contacted and will have until 31 July 2016 to submit formal bids. Bids should be submitted to Judy Scharmann, firstname.lastname@example.org, with CC to Yu-Cheng Lin, email@example.com.
Please visit our website to view the conference bid package requirements.
IEEE SENSORS 2015 Proceedings
IEEE SENSORS 2015 proceedings are now available in IEEE Xplore including recorded presentations wherever there is a "Media" icon in the Table of Contents.
R!oT VII Recap
On Tuesday February 2nd, we held the first R!oT event of 2016: North Carolina and the Smart City Ecosystem.
The crowd of 350 packed the NC Museum of Natural History. The R!oT community heard a wonderful explanation of the true value of smart cities from Jennifer Robinson, Director of Local Government Solutions at SAS. We then heard about the Town of Cary's smart water metering system, Aquastar, from Karen Mills, Finance Director of Cary.
Dr. Sokwoo Rhee finished out the evening explaining how NC can get involved in the Global Cities Team Challenge. We were thrilled to hear Dr. Rhee say that he's never seen anything quite like the R!oT community. We are unique...in a good way.
Finally, we were excited to announce the launch of R!oT ED. This IoT education series has separate tracks for both engineers and the not-so-tech savvy. We'll share registration links soon.
Download the all of the evening's presentations.
Stay tuned for links on upcoming R!oT events, R!oT ED registration, and how to get involved in the Global Cities Team Challenge.
Member Society Spotlight
The Sensors Council currently has 26 member societies. Each quarter we will feature a number of our member societies in the "Member Society Spotlight." To view a full list of our member societies, visit our website.
This quarter, we spotlight the IEEE Electron Devices Society and IEEE Industry Applications Society.
The field of interest for the IEEE Electron Devices Society is all aspects of engineering, physics, theory, experiment and simulation of electron and ion devices involving insulators, metals, organic materials, plasmas, semiconductors, quantum-effect materials, vacuum, and emerging materials. Specific applications of these devices include bioelectronics, biomedical, computation, communications, displays, electro and micro mechanics, imaging, micro actuators, optical, photovoltaics, power, sensors and signal processing.
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.
2016 IEEE Panel of Editors
IEEE will be hosting the Panel of Editors 7-9 April 2016 in San Diego, CA, USA. IEEE Sensors Council VP of Publications, John Vig and IEEE Sensors Journal EIC, Krikor Ozanyan will be attending.
IEEE Sensors Council Spring AdCom Meeting
The Sensors Council AdCom 2016 Spring meeting will be held in La Jolla, CA, USA 10-11 April 2016.
IEEE Sensors Journal Most Downloaded Papers
Each month, IEEE makes available the list of the 50 most downloaded IEEE Sensors Journal papers for the previous month. The latest list is now available. Each quarter, authors of the most downloaded papers receive a letter from the Sensors Council President acknowledging them for their impressive accomplishment.

New Requirement for IEEE Authors
Many author names in IEEE Xplore are not unique. For example, there are more than 60,000 authors whose last name is Kim, more than 30,000 whose last name is Zhang, and more than 10,000 each whose last name is Smith, Nguyen, Kumar or Singh. An authors name can also change; e.g., as a result of marriage.
How is one to determine which C. Park an author is when there are more than 13,780 C. Parks in IEEE Xplore? By the end of 2016, IEEE require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) from authors of papers submitted to a periodical, with a similar requirement on conference submissions to follow. ORCID is a nonproprietary and persistent alphanumeric code to uniquely identify an author, just like the Digital Object Identifier (DOI), uniquely identifies each article with a nonproprietary and persistent alphanumeric code. An example of an ORCID is "orcid.org/0000-0002-2378-0113." Researchers may obtain an ORCID for free at https://orcid.org/register. Further information may be found at their website.
