Scientists and engineers today start their careers with excellent technical skills and subject matter. The IEEE Sensors Council Newsletter includes time sensitive news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of IEEE Sensors Journal.

Upcoming Conferences

IEEE SENSORS will be held 3-5 November 2014 in Valencia, Spain.

Visit the conference Web site for more information.

IEEE International Symposium on Inertial Sensors and Systems (ISISS) will be held 24-26 March 2015 in Hapuna Beach, HI, USA.

The ISISS 2015 Committee invites you to the Big Island of Hawaii! Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is situated on the sunny Kohala Coast of the northernmost end of the Big Island of Hawaii. Perched on the hillside overlooking the beautiful highly rated Hapuna Beach, the Hawaii hotel offers guests the perfect setting for a memorable getaway in paradise. With Hawaii's moderate tropical climate, you'll enjoy year-round temperatures averaging 75 degrees Fahrenheit, northeasterly tradewins, and warm ocean waters. Allow the soft ocean breezes and tropical foliage of the island to inspire learning and technical exchange in an informal atmosphere of this exclusive technical symposium.

Special Issue of IEEE Sensors Journal
A special issue of the IEEE Sensors Journal is planned with selected papers from the IEEE SENSORS 2014 Conference.

Authors of the estimated 25 abstracts that received the highest scores during the abstract review by the Technical Program Committee will be invited to submit extended papers. Subject to peer review, these papers will be presented in a special issue of the Journal-edited by Francisco Arregui.

IEEE Internet of Things Journal (IOT-J)
The IEEE Internet of Things Journal (IoT-J) began publication in 2014. All IoT-J papers are now available in IEEE Xplore.

The IoT-J solicits original papers, review papers, and proposals for special issues. Topics of interest include IoT system architecture, IoT enabling technologies, IoT services and applications, and the social implications of IoT. Submission of manuscripts are accepted at the Manuscript Central Web site.

Call for Nominations-IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturers

Please nominate a colleague for the IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer, who has demonstrate an established reputation for outstanding research and/or teaching in the field of sensors.

The Sensors Council's Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) promotes the field of Sensors to the broad engineering and scientific community, and to the public at large. Lectures presented by Distinguished Lecturers are meant to be public events aimed at specialists as well as non-specialists. These can be given in local IEEE chapters, at universities and companies, high schools, senior citizen homes, science fairs, science museums, etc. A budget is provided to cover the DL's transportation expenses when traveling to speaking engagements (up to $1,500 per trip, or up to $2,500 when traveling to another continent). The requesting organization - a local chapter, a university, a college, etc. are expected to cover all local expenses.

Appointments will reflect the geographical distribution of IEEE chapters, and representation of the Council's member societies. Visit our Web site for further details of the IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer Program.

Please send the DL nominees names, with a written confirmation of willingness to serve, a copy of the full CV including list of publications, and a complete list of their service to the profession such as editorial boards, leadership roles in professional societies and conferences, to Hulya Kirkici, IEEE Sensors Council Vice President - Technical Operations.
