IEEE Members in the News

1The Space Show – Ella Atkins, IEEE

The Space Show
November 8, 2019 


"IEEE Senior member discusses the use of robotics in space, leveraging tech for space for the future, autonomous terrestrial, air & space vehicles, human spaceflight and more."

Innovation happens when we work together. We recently achieved an important milestone as an organization: Bringing together on one platform access to over 300 local IEEE Sections, personalized to each of our 400,000+ members globally. 

IEEE Sections are valued and vibrant communities across the IEEE global network.  Available exclusively to IEEE Members, all IEEE Sections now have a dedicated gateway on IEEE Collabratec that showcase local networks, activities, and opportunities. Linked on the Member’s profile upon log-in, gateway resources include:

           Link to the IEEE Section’s website

           New IEEE Members to the Section, as they opt into the IEEE Member Directory

           Upcoming events organized by the Section, and conferences within geographic proximity of your Section

           Listing of the IEEE Volunteer leadership who make great things happen in the Section

           Recognition of Members in the Section who have advanced in membership grade

           Recognition of Members who have received badges for their participation on Collabratec

           Collabratec communities and workspaces in which Members of the Section participate

The gateway experience is consistent for Members should they move from one Section to another -- and offers our Student Members a persistent connection with their IEEE Section during their time of study, and as they embark upon their professional careers.

Finding a safe, secure, and central location to store, access, or share research data can prove to be a challenge for engineers and researchers. To serve these needs, IEEE has created IEEE DataPort as solution for the global technical community. Fully integrated with Amazon Web Services (AWS), this web-based data platform enables users to share and manage their datasets in one trusted location. IEEE DataPort leverages the security of AWS while offering high value with no cost at this time. Authors and data owners can upload their datasets and the platform allows authors to link their datasets to their manuscripts. IEEE DataPort also formulates dataset citations so the data owner’s work can be properly cited. 

Standard datasets will always be free to upload to IEEE DataPort while Open Access datasets can currently be uploaded at no cost using the promotional code OPENACCESS1 at checkout. IEEE DataPort eliminates the tedious process of finding a hosting platform and making additional payments involved with storing your data.

Hosted datasets are accessible worldwide and give the technical community the opportunity to collaborate on a global scale. To learn more about IEEE DataPort and to upload your own dataset, visit ieee-dataport.org.

Do you want to introduce STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) into your classroom—or into your child's life? Join this free event presented by Graceann Griffin, STEM teacher and IEEE Pre-University Education Coordinating Committee member, on 12 December at 12pm ET. Her presentation
will be followed by a LIVE Q&A, so be sure to submit your questions!  https://bit.ly/2O70eWs


STEM

By the time children, especially those in under-resourced areas, reach 8th grade, nearly 50% have lost interest in STEM. Make a difference by sponsoring a classroom.

eMentoring 

TryEngineering Together pairs engineers with students to learn more about the possibilities of engineering and STEM careers. Organizations can pair their employees with 3rd-5th graders either locally or in an under-resourced area of the USA. 

Company employees can volunteer for just 2-3 hours a month. With the ability to access the platform anywhere around the world, helping students is easy and convenient.  Learn about becoming a corporate sponsor by visiting: http://cricketmedia.com/meet-tryengineering-together?utm_source=tadconnectnov&utm_medium=decemail&utm_campaign=tet

The City of Glasgow Designed the Tartan to Honor 30 Years of Hosting IEEE Conferences

By Jeremiah Daniels

THE INSTITUTE The Glasgow Convention Bureau created the IEEE Glasgow tartan to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first meeting of the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) held in the city.

A tartan is a patterned cloth that visually represents a family or clan. The IEEE Glasgow tartan is a modern-day representation of belonging for IEEE members. The tartan, woven in Scotland using traditional methods, consists of crisscross bands, using blue to represent knowledge, integrity, expertise, and stability and white to represent light, safety, and purity.

The cloth was presented to IEEE President José Moura by Glasgow’s mayor, Eva Bolander, during a celebratory dinner held on 17 September. Top volunteers from IEEE Region 8 and Glasgow attended the ceremony, as well as representatives from nearby universities.

One was IEEE Senior Member James Irvine, a professor of electrical and electronic engineering at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. He fondly recalls that first conference, which was chaired by IEEE Life Fellow Tariq Durrani, now a research professor at the university.
