Dr. Norman C. Beaulieu recipient of the EIC KY Lo Medal
Guy C. Gosselin, President of the Engineering Institute of Canada is pleased to inform you that Dr. Norman C. Beaulieu has been selected to receive the K.Y. Lo Medal. Accordingly, he will be recognized at the EIC's annual honours and awards banquet in the Panorama Room at the National Arts Centre, 53 Elgin Street in Ottawa ON during the evening of Saturday, 6 March 2004.
Established by his students in 1998, this medal honours K. Y. Lo, Professor Emeritus of the University of Western Ontario and recognizes significant engineering contributions at the international level. The award of this medal is a rare distinction given that the EIC has eight member societies with a total membership approximating 35,000. The EIC Honours, Awards and Fellowships Committee, with members from each society, requires candidates to be supported by at least three nominators.
IEEE unveils Standards Information Network website
IEEE has recently unveiled its new IEEE Standards Information Network. Part of IEEE Press, the IEEE Standards Information Network is a publishing operation with the IEEE Standards Association that publishes leading-edge guides, handbooks, tutorials, and other materials that enhance the understanding and implementation of standards.
