Past Section Chair Appointed to Influential IEEE Committees

IEEE Board of Directors has appointed past IEEE UK and Ireland Section chair, Professor Mike Hinchey, to serve on two influential IEEE committees.

The IEEE Public Visibility Committee helps ensure that IEEE maintains its position as the leading authority on technological innovation in the 21st century, particularly given the rapid convergence of technical domain areas across multiple sectors, e.g., cybersecurity, machine learning, IoT, robotics, etc.

The IEEE Conduct Review Committee is new and will make recommendations for policies and educational programs to promote the ethical behaviour of members and staff, and consider matters of member and officer discipline and requests for support.

Both appointments commence on 1st January 2021 and run through to the end of 2021 for the Conduct Review Committee and 2022 for the Public Visibility Committee.

The Section congratulates Mike on his appointments and dedicated service to IEEE.
