Vijay Bhargava Recognized by Royal Society of Canada
When IEEE Fellow Vijay Bhargava journeyed from his native India to Canada as an 18-year-old to study engineering at Queens University in Kingston, Ont., he had no intention of staying in North America. But 38 years later, he's still there. He's become a renowned educator and wireless technology pioneer. Recently, Bhargava's adopted country recognized his contributions to wireless technology by presenting him with the Royal Society of Canada's Thomas W. Eadie Medal.

Global Document Storage and Retrieval service available to IEEE members
IEEE members now have the opportunity to purchase a document storage and retrieval service through the IEEE Financial Advantage Program. Offered through Global Work Life Solutions, this service provides secure storage for personal documents, including medical information, children's vital statistics, and family and travel information. To ensure security, the database housing this information is not connected to the Internet and cannot be hacked. However, IEEE members and medical or police personnel can easily access the information during an emergency around the world. For more information or to enroll, visit http://www.gwls.com/ieee.
Call for fellow nominations
Nominations are being accepted for the 2006 class of IEEE Fellows. For the second year, nominations, references and endorsements may be submitted electronically. The deadline is 1 March 2005.
At its June 2003 meeting, the IEEE Board of Directors approved changes to the process for nominating and electing IEEE members to Fellow grade. The change established a new nomination category for individual contributions, with the goal of increasing nominations for members in industry and encouraging nominations of application engineers or engineering practitioners who have made contributions of unusual distinction to the profession.
The board also established a Fellow Nomination Resource Center to help nominators locate the required number of references to support a nomination. To nominate an IEEE senior member or to learn more about the Fellow program, visit www.ieee.org/fellows.
