Magnetics Society Chapter Chair:Mark Juds Eaton Corporation Purpose: The Magnetics Society focuses on the fundamental developments, design, and certain applications of magnetic devices. This includes consideration of materials and components used, standardization of definitions, symbols, and operating characteristics. circa: 1920 “Right Hand Rule”
Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Chapter Chair:Larry Hause Diagnostic Visions Purpose: IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) is the world's largest international society of Biomedical Engineers with 8,200 members residing in some 70 countries. They design the electrical circuits that make a pacemaker run...create the software that reads an MRI...and help develop the wireless technologies that allow patients and doctors to communicate over long distances.
Computer Society Chapter Chair:John Safar Safar Machinery Purpose: With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, it is the largest of the 39 IEEE Societies and it is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computer information-processing technology. IEEE 802.11 Standard for Defining Wireless Local Area Networks
Industrial Applications / Industrial Electronics Societies Chapter Chair:Adel Nasiri University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Purpose: The advancement of the theory and practice of electrical and electronic engineering in the development, design, manufacture and application of electrical systems, apparatus, devices and controls to the processes and equipment of industry and commerce.
Antennas and Propagation / Microwave Theory & Techniques Societies Chapter Chair:Dr. Shrinivas Joshi Marquette University Purpose: The field of interest for APS includes: antenna signal processing and control, radio astronomy, and the aspects of space-based communication, including wireless, mobile, satellite, and telecommunications. The field of interest for MTT includes: theory and applications of RF, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz technologies. IEEE 145 International Standard for the Definitions of Terms for Antennas
Power and Energy Engineering Society Chapter Chair:Paul Tindall American Transmission Company Purpose: The IEEE Power & Energy Society is engaged in the electric power energy industry.
