EE's Chiao Named IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer
Thursday, January 19, 2017
J.-C. Chiao, Mike and Janet Greene Endowed Professor and Jenkins Garrett Endowed Professor of Electrical Engineering, has been appointed as a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Sensors Council for the period of 2017-19.
Chiao was a Distinguished Microwave Lecturer of the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society from 2012-14 and is currently DML Emeritus. Dr. Chiao has presented 52 talks at universities and institutes all over the world, organized by local MTT chapters and other societies such as AP, EMBS and EDS. The title of his IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecture is “Implantable and Wearable Wireless Medical Sensors”.
The IEEE Sensors Council was formally constituted in June 1998 with presidents of 14 IEEE Societies signing the petition for its formation. The fields of interest of the Council and its activities are the theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing, reliability and applications of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical, and biological phenomena. There are 26 member societies of this council, each of which is represented in the Administrative Committee of the council through its appointed representative.
The IEEE Sensors Council’s Distinguished Lecturer Program promotes the field of sensors to the broad engineering and scientific community, and to the public at large by providing lecturers who are acknowledged and eminent scholars in pure and applied sensors and sensor-related technical fields, and who can be selectively invited by “local” entities globally. Lectures are meant to be public events and can be given at local IEEE chapters, universities and companies, high schools, and science fairs.
