About the IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter
The IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter includes time sensitive news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of IEEE Sensors Journal.
IEEE Virtual Conference on Applications of Commercial Sensors (VCSAS):
The IEEE Sensors Council and IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society (EMBS) have joined forces to launch a new virtual conference that focuses on practical applications of sensors. Successful authors will submit papers that will teach others how to build useful electronic devices using commercially available microprocessor platforms and sensors. Successful authors will include complete details (circuit diagrams, PCB layouts, computer code, SolidWorks files, etc.) so that others can readily implement their working prototypes. A short video of each working system is required.
Special features to IEEE VCACS 2015:
IEEE SENSORS Conferences
IEEE Inertial Sensors 2016 will be held in Laguna Beach, California, USA 22-25 February 2016. To register, please visit our website.
IEEE SENSORS 2016 will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA 30 October - 3 November 2016. Visit our website for more information. View the call for papers.
IEEE SENSORS 2017 will be held in Glasgow, Scotland 29 October - 1 November 2017.
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 1 January - 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
Some highlights and firsts for IEEE SENSORS Conferences:
The final count of speaker presentations downloaded at the IEEE SENSORS 2015 Conference was 14,379; making it our best year thus far.
Member Society Spotlight
The Sensors Council currently has 24 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 are featuring the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S).
The field of interest of the AP-S encompasses: antennas, including analysis, design, development, measurement, and testing; radiation, propagation, and the interaction of electromagnetic waves with discrete and continuous media; and applications and systems pertinent to antennas, propagation, and sensing, such as applied optics, millimeter- and submillimeter-wave techniques, antenna signal processing and control, radio astronomy, and propagation and radiation aspects of terrestrial and space-based communication, including wireless, mobile, satellite, and telecommunications.
The UK and Ireland IEEE Sensor Council Chapter Approved
IEEE Sensors Council (SC) is happy announce the forming a new UK & Ireland Chapter (UKRI). SC has been actively seeking to reach out to sensor community in different regions of IEEE. With the UK & Ireland Chapter, IEEE SC will be able to reach out to over 9,000 members (including all membership levels) from 38 IEEE Societies. The UKRI is the leading IEEE section in Region 8, which makes up about 14% of this region. The UKRI Chapter of SC will be its 8th Chapter.
The UKRI geographic region has over a hundred years of history in a diverse range of sensor technologies, with many of the sensor technologies being successfully commercialized via start-ups and spin-out companies. More than 100 universities and large number of companies across UKRI are active in the area of sensors. For example in Scotland, there are around 140 companies that have market-leading sensor technologies at the core of their offerings, and generate an income of £2.5 billion per year for the economy. The Governments in the UK and Ireland region consider sensors the greatest future technology areas.
The general public in this region shows significant interest in the field of sensors by favoring and adopting sensors for healthcare, well-being and smart cities. Despite the significant academic, industrial, government and public interest in the area of sensors and the presence of Chapters from various societies supporting the IEEE Sensors Council, the UKRI region was lacking a coherent voice in the form of Sensors Council Chapter. The new UKRI Chapter addressed this gap and will enable the sensors community to effectively deal with the areas of public concern and to "advance technology for the mankind" in the UKRI region.
Dr. Ravinder Dahiya, an active member of the Sensor Council, initiated the formation of the new UKRI Chapter. Currently, he represents Robotics and Automation Society in the AdCom of Sensors Council.
IEEE Sensors Journal Most Downloaded Papers
Each month, IEEE makes available the list of the 50 most downloaded 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.
View the archive of the most downloaded articles since 2011.
2016 Officers of the IEEE Sensors Council
The Sensors Council held their AdCom meeting in Busan, Korea 31 October-4 November. At this meeting the 2016 officers were appointed.
Congratulations to our newly appointed 2016 Officers:
IEEE Sensors Journal Announcement
