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.
Greetings to everyone! As the final quarter of 2017 arrives, we approach the opening of the annual IEEE SENSORS Conference. This year's meeting is shaping up to be one of the best all-around gatherings of sensor engineers and end-users, with approximately 900 attendees expected to descend on Glasgow, Scotland. The meeting will feature three outstanding keynote lectures sure to capture the imagination of all, along with three full days of invited talks, contributed oral presentations, and a large variety of posters.
In addition to the outstanding technical and social program for the main event, a workshop on "Sensing the Brain" and a local technology summit and conference will be held on 2 November, immediately following the conference. It is not too late to register for either of these, although the spaces are limited and they are rapidly disappearing!
Finally, if you have not previously visited Glasgow, you will certainly appreciate the charm and vibe of this historic yet progressive city. On top of the museums, parks, business district, and nightlife, watch for some special "pop-up" IEEE promotions throughout the city during the dates around the conference; we will be trying out a special public engagement initiative to promote what we are doing to the general public.
With warm regards and best wishes for a strong finish to 2017. Hoping to see you all in Glasgow!
IEEE Sensors Council President
The IEEE Sensors Council is accepting nominations for the IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer Program for 2018-2020.
We count on all Sensors Council volunteers to nominate a colleague for a DL position who has demonstrated strong technical achievements and has established a reputation for outstanding research and/or teaching in the field of sensors.
The IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer Program details, including Distinguished Lecturer prerequisites, candidate evaluation criteria, Lecturer appointment process, duties, and expectations are listed on our website.
Nomination packages should include all requested documents and the completed nomination form.
Please send the complete DL nomination packages to Fabrice Labeau, IEEE Sensors Council DL Committee Chair no later than 15 October 2017.
Congratulations to the newly elected 2018-2019 IEEE Sensors Council Officers. The following will take office on 1 January 2018:
IEEE SENSORS 2017, the flagship conference of the IEEE Sensors Council, will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, 29 October - 1 November 2017.
Please plan to attend! While the paper and demo submission deadline has passed, there is still time to make plans to participate in the valuable technical talks, professional development activities, exhibit, industry day, and networking aspects of the conference. For more details, please visit the website.
IEEE Young Professionals Reception
IEEE Sensors Council invites all young professionals attending the IEEE SENSORS Conference to join in on the Halloween fun at the Young Professionals Reception on Monday, 30 October at the Scottish Event Campus from 5:30pm. Come ready to meet Sensors Council members and other Young Professionals, and learn about the different opportunities available through the IEEE Sensors Council and IEEE Young Professionals Program.
The IEEE Young Professionals Program is aimed at supporting IEEE members at an early stage in their career, up to 15 years after their first degree, by helping them evaluate their career goals, polish their professional image and create building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network. Come dressed in your fancy attire or avail from the different Halloween themed accessories available throughout the night!

IEEE Women in Sensors Events:
You and your colleagues are invited to register for the IEEE Brain Initiative sponsored Brain Data Bank Challenge.
This event will be held in parallel to IEEE SENSORS Conference 2017, Glasgow, Scotland. Registration is open until 15 October 2017. There is a companion webinar planned on 12 October 2017 to provide background/tutorial information about the BDB Challenge and cash awards. Webinar access information can be found on their website.
The IEEE Brain Initiative will be hosting a one-day workshop 2 November 2017, following the IEEE SENSORS 2017 meeting. The theme of the IEEE Brain SENSORS workshop will be "Sensing the Brain," with a focus on invasive sensors and sensing technology. Unlike traditional lecture style workshops, the IEEE Brain SENSORS workshop will be collaborative in nature and will include only a few short presentations that are intended to facilitate discussions. The goal is for all participants to identify challenges and to explore solutions as part of breakout group dialogues. The outcomes of this one-day workshop will be included in a future IEEE publication. Learn more on their website.
The IEEE Sensors Council and the IEEE Internet of Things Initiative are seeking volunteers to participate in the Organizing Committee for a Virtual Career Fair in Spring 2018. The goal of this pilot project is to help graduating university students find jobs in the emerging IoT field. Graduating students are eager to join IoT companies developing exciting new products based on IEEE technical specialties. In-person career fairs are not universally available. We want to create a Virtual IoT Career Fair (VIoTCF) that will give all students worldwide a new avenue to reach recruiters. The students can trust IEEE to discretely handle their private information. Recruiters will trust IEEE as an honest broker to compile student credentials.
Our project has these goals:
Call for Volunteers:
We are seeking volunteers to join the Organizing Committee for this project. From IEEE, we need Student Branch officers, Section Education Committee Chairs, and Technical Society Education Committee officials. From Universities, we need Engineering Career Office professionals. From the IoT industry, we seek company HR officers and recruiters. If you think this is an interesting project and have some ideas on how we can make it successful, please send an email to Troy Nagle at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
An up to date listing of the IEEE Sensors Journal Editorial Board is available on our website.
2016 IEEE Sensors Journal Impact Factor
The journal impact factors for 2016 were recently released and it is a pleasure to report that the IEEE Sensors Journal 2016 Impact Factor (Clarivate, former Thomson-Reuters) is up 33% from last year, to 2.512. This is despite our yearly growth in pages, which means that we have grown in both the number of papers and their perceived quality.
The IEEE Sensors Council is proud to announce the IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturers (DL) 2017-2019.
