Susan K. “Kathy” Land Is 2020 IEEE President-Elect
She has led many IEEE organizations including the Computer Society, Standards Association, and Technical Activities
THE INSTITUTE IEEE Fellow Susan K. “Kathy” Land has been chosen as 2020 IEEE president-elect. She will begin serving as president on 1 January 2021.
Land, who was nominated by the IEEE Board of Directors, received 23,147 votes in the elections. Fellow Dejan Milojicic received 18,392 votes.
At press time, the results were unofficial until the IEEE Board of Directors accepts the IEEE Tellers Committee report in November.
IEEE’s New Open Access Journals Call for Papers
THE INSTITUTE IEEE is seeking article submissions for its new gold fully open access journals.
Gold open access refers to articles being made open access through the payment of a fee- called an article processing charge (APC)—by the author.
The new journals will be fully open access and will publish articles within the specialized field of interest of the sponsoring society. With these journals, the organization is committed to helping further scientific research and supporting accessibility to technological information.
IEEE Standards Association’s New Look Reflects Its Evolution
THE INSTITUTE For decades, the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) has set out to create a globally open and inclusive environment for consensus-building, widely respected, and adopted technology standards.
Global expansion, the rapid pace of technology development, and emerging and converging technologies have created a need for standards in new technical areas and industries. Having witnessed the introduction and inclusion of new and different standards participants, evolving industry needs and expectations, and an increased competitive space in standardization, IEEE SA has created new ecosystems of experts to address important matters that are contextual and critical to the future of technology.
As part of this expansion, IEEE SA is moving into new geographical and technological territories and is opening new avenues for industry engagement. The standards development ecosystem has grown to include pre-standardization incubation activities, conformance and certification, and alliance management services. These changes have been important in meeting industry and participants’ needs.
To reflect this evolution and best position itself for the future, on 14 October, World Standards Day, IEEE SA unveiled a new identity. This new look has been designed to reflect current business as well as the organization’s aspirations for the future while ensuring that it reflects the same core values, collaborative spirit, and connection to IEEE. With this comes a new mantra: Raising the World’s Standards.
This expression speaks to the desire to go beyond areas. It reveals an aspiration to raise the bar and go beyond serving our current constituency to also include other people, technologies, and sectors.
IEEE SA is dedicated to providing a high-quality, globally open, market-relevant consensus-building environment, where great minds work to develop leading-edge technology standards.
Earn Educational Credits with IEEE Resource Centers
To stay on the cusp of technology and best practices in their field and meet specific training requirements, students and researchers are constantly looking for opportunities to attain continuing education credits (CEUs) and/or professional development hours (PDHs). The requirements for CEUs and PDHs are designed to help engineers stay on the leading edge of technology and cutting-edge research, but it can often be difficult to attain these credits or can require significant coordination. To make this process less difficult, IEEE offers on-demand CEU and PDH credits through courses taught by leading experts from many industries.
Currently, IEEE offers education credits through 7 Resource Centers, all of which span a broad range of topics, ranging from power and energy to aerospace applications to sustainable urbanization. The Resource Centers consolidate all valuable content such as tutorials, webinars and slides in one, single location. To learn more about how to earn credits, visit the IEEE Resource Centers page.

How Did The Apollo Landing Shape Future Uses of IoT?
IT pros can trace the inspiration behind IoT to well before it was mentioned by Kevin Ashton -- the person who allegedly coined the term IoT -- at a presentation in 1999.
The first real-time embedded digital computer, the Apollo Guidance Computer, was limited in its capabilities, but it pushed the development from room-size machines toward the miniscule sensors available today. Apollo engineers had to reduce the computers of the day to fit in the limited space of a space shuttle. The success of the Apollo missions led to the incorporation of smaller computers into commercial and military aircraft and commercial use in science and financial services. The computers also increased the performance capabilities of satellites.

Empowering Innovation - EPICS Expo 2019 at Arizona State University
On the 17th of October, EPICS in IEEE in collaboration with the Arizona State University (ASU) Ira Fulton School of Engineering EPICS program, hosted the first EPICS Expo. The ASU EPICS Expo was an opportunity to highlight the innovative technological solutions that teams of exceptional engineering students were developing to assist local non-profits.
Ray Alcantara, program manager for EPICS in IEEE stated: “It’s remarkable what these students are able to envision, engineer, and deploy. Everyone who has ever contributed to EPICS in IEEE should be proud of what these students are able to accomplish.”
