IEEE is a vibrant organization of professionals collectively using our diverse talents for the benefit of humanity. This is the force of technology – the life-changing impact that science and engineering can have on society.
In order to address the rapid rate at which new technical fields evolve, IEEE has created a number of communities focused on fast-growing topic areas. Known as IEEE Technical Communities, these groups facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration among technical professionals, connect experts across disciplines, and develop programs, which challenge traditional technologies through novel research and applications.
As part of the Systems Council Chapter's development, a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) have been formed under the Chapter to focus on trans-disciplinary areas of relevance to systems thinking, systems analysis, systems engineering and systems emergence that fall within the scope of the Systems Council.
The Systems Council Chapter Climate Change and Environmental Technology Special Interest Group (ETSIG) had its first public lecture on 23 May 2018 in London. Dr. Jane Dennett-Thorpe gave a lecture with a focus on innovative technologies and transition to a low carbon economy.
The Section’s recent Milestone dedication at the University of Dundee is the front page lead story in the just-published June 2018 issue of IEEE Region 8 News, the Region’s quarterly glossy newsletter.
UK and Ireland's Life Members Affinity Group (LMAG) Committee confirmed last week that no less than four new IEEE history Milestones are in the pipeline within the Section. This comes hot on the heels of the unveiling of a Milestone plaque and a technical symposium just after Easter this year dedicated to the invention of amorphous silicon TFT at the University of Dundee.
Professor Alwyn Seeds is to receive the 2018 Distinguished Educator Award of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S).
