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.
Welcome to a new issue of the IEEE Sensors Council quarterly newsletter!
As we head into the summer months in the northern hemisphere and activities are slowing down, the activities of the Sensors Council are still in full swing!
We are getting closer to the next edition of IEEE SENSORS, our flagship conference, more and more exciting news is coming out about the program. Plenary speakers have been announced; they will engage the audience in a range of topics ranging from affordable IoT solutions for the Developing World to biomimetic sensors. The conference will take place from 28-31 October in New Delhi, India; be sure to reserve the date and start your travel arrangements to join us for an exciting four days of sensors-related activities!
The editors and reviewers of our periodicals do not seem to ever slow down either. The IEEE Sensors Journal and the IEEE Sensors Letters are still as vibrant as ever, and their editorial boards continue to select high quality papers in a record amount of time. The current median time between a paper submission to these journals and the paper being posted online on IEEE Xplore is currently of eight and seven weeks respectively. The IEEE IoT Journal is also a resounding success.
I am also taking the opportunity of this message to draw your attention to two newer publications that are cosponsored by the IEEE Sensors Council. The IEEE Transactions on Games publishes papers related to game technology, including the use of sensors in games. The IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology, as its name implies, focuses on state-of-the-art research related to electromagnetics theory, techniques and integration for medical and biological applications.
Our awards program is also well under way. We have received several top-notch nominations for our different awards and the different award committees are hard at work finalizing the lists of winners.
I would also like to draw your attention to the fact that we will soon be starting the campaign of nominations for our class of 2019 Distinguished Lecturers. We will be looking for individuals who are ready to act as ambassadors for the Sensors Council by delivering seminars and lectures to our community.
As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome at email@example.com.
IEEE Sensors Council President
IEEE SENSORS 2018, the flagship conference of the IEEE Sensors Council will be held in New Delhi, India 28-31 October 2018, and a special issue with extended version of the of best presented papers will be then host on the IEEE Sensors Journal.
Please visit the conference website for more information on registration and travel to the conference.
IEEE INERTIAL 2019 will be held 1-4 April 2019 at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club in Naples, FL, USA. The event continues our annual tradition of informal single-track international meetings discussing the latest developments in the area of modern inertial sensors and emerging applications.
Abstract Submission: 1 October 2018

Attending ICCE 2018 as a Speaker and an Audience
The IEEE Brain Initiative kick-started the Brain Data Bank (BDB) Challenges and Competitions at the Pavlov Institute of Physiology, St. Petersburg, Russia, on June 26 & 27, 2017. Anya Stetsenko was one of the first participants, on the winning group, Team 188.8.131.52.1. Read More.
Since 2015 the number of IEEE Sensors Council Chapters have more than doubled. Chapters are organized by local groups with interest in promoting sensors. In 2018, four Sensors Council Chapters have been formed including:
The IEEE France Section Sensors Council Chapter was created in February 2018.
In the framework of its first General Assembly, the 1st IEEE France Sensors Chapter Workshop was held in Nancy, France on June 18 and 19th with 75+ attendees.
We had the chance to welcome Dr. Ravinder Dahiya, IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer and Chairman of UK & Ireland Chapter, as well as 17 high-level speakers from 17 different French cities.
Chapter members had the opportunity to bond during a very nice social dinner and visits of the brand-new facilities of Insitut Jean Lamour. The general assembly was the occasion to elect a first chapter board, and to discuss and validate a new development strategy going forward. Read more.

IEEE Sensors Journal
IEEE Sensors Journal New Special Issue on "Deep Learning for Multi-Source Multi-Sensor Fusion"
Multi-source multi-sensor fusion has a wealth of manifestation ranging from object detection, monitoring, recognition to decision making. This new Special Issue will be devoted to present and highlight the advances and the latest novel and emergent technologies, implementations and applications in multi-source multi-sensor fusion fields. The application of deep learning in different sensor systems will be largely exploited.
Submissions deadline: 30 November 2018
The IEEE Sensors Journal Special Issues are available on our website.
IEEE Internet of Things Journal
The IEEE Internet of Things Journal welcomes submissions, especially to the following special issues:
For further information about the IEEE IoT Journal, please visit their website.
IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (J-ERM)
Special Issue Title: "Applications of Electromagnetics in Biomedical Sensors"
The IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (J-ERM), sponsored by IEEE MTT-S, APS and EMBS Societies and Sensors Council, will publish a special issue devoted to the 2018 IEEE SENSORS Conference. Authors of original research papers related to biomedical applications presented at the conference are invited to submit an expanded version of their papers to the Special Issue. The expanded version requires significantly new technical content and results beyond the conference paper. Every paper will be reviewed in the same manner as regular submissions to this journal. Information on the journal can be found at ieee-jerm.org.
The focuses of the journal are on unifying the sciences and applications of medicine and biology related to utilizing electromagnetics, radio frequency signals and microwaves/millimeter-waves. If you are doubtful whether your paper is suitable for J-ERM, please write to the guest editors (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please note that:
The due date for the paper submission is 15 January 2019. The expected publication date of the special issue is 1 May 2019. The journal is in electronic format, so the accepted paper will appear in IEEE Xplore within a few days after acceptance.
More information on the IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer Program can be found on our website.
