Membership Dues in Special Circumstances
IEEE realizes that economic circumstances may impact some members' ability to pay the full amount of IEEE membership dues. For this reason, the following special circumstance categories have been established. Special circumstances are not available to Student members. Only one category may be claimed in any year.
IEEE Electrical Safety, Technical and Mega Projects
The 20th Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering - CCECE07
The 20th Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering will be held at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel, Vancouver from 22-25 April 2007. Well over 400 contributions will be presented in 96 sessions over three days. In addition to the usual strong representation of areas such as Communications, Computers, Power, Signal processing and VLSI, there are sessions on Biomedical Engineering, Nano and Micro Systems and Software Engineering. Three special luncheon speakers are Ibrahim Gedeon, CTO of TELUS, the 2007 IEEE Canada McNaughton Gold Medal winner and a high profile speaker from BC Hydro (TBD). The IEEE Canada will hold their Award Gala at the Conference Banquet on 23 April 2007. Further details of the program may be found on the conference website located at: http://www.ieee.ca/ccece07/
August 22-24, 2007
Established in 1987, Pacific Rim Conference is the premier IEEE biennial event in the Pacific Northwest. All accepted papers will appear in IEEE Xplore.
The ISSSE2007 will be held in the beautiful city of Montreal, Canada, July 30 - August 2, 2007 as part of the major URSI events, which is also sponsored by the IEEE and several other organizations. In addition to oral presentations and posters, ISSSE2007 includes workshops, tutorials, and an industrial exhibition.
The paper summary submission deadline is coming up on March 25, 2007. Please visit our website at http://www.issse2007.polymtl.ca for further information.
We invite you to participate to this event and encourage you to book July 30 - August 2, 2007 on your calendar.
Authors of the best papers will receive the ISSSE2007 award at the International Symposium on Signals, Systems, and Electronics (ISSSE). The conference is now accepting paper submissions on a variety of topics including networks and signals; electronic system partitioning and interface; wireless, optical, and cable based systems; and more. Young Scientist support with be available to selected participants who hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and are 35 years old or younger.
May 14 to 16, 2007
The workshop is a meeting of those interested in applying Advanced Process Control technology to improve performance of the process industries. Practical installation experience and results are presented for discussion. Plant operations today are faced with ever-increasing pressure to improve efficiency, quality and productivity. Without making fundamental changes to their production processes, improvement can usually be made with the application of advanced control technology. Using modern computer hardware, software and innovative techniques, application engineers are able to collect real time and historical data on their processes. Data analysis, modeling and simulation provide a better understanding of the dynamics of process behavior. Once the process characteristics are accurately identified, the options for applying suitable control methodology are no longer limited to conventional control techniques.
The Inaugural International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS 2007)
20 to 22 June
The Inaugural International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS) is following on the success of the previous five editions of the DEBS workshops held from 2002 to 2006 in companion with major conferences such as ICDCS, ICSE, and SIGMOD/PODS. The conference is organized in cooperation with USENIX, the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society, and ACM (SIGSOFT).
The objectives of the DEBS Conference are to provide a forum dedicated to the dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights, and the reporting on relevant experience relating to event-based computing that was previously scattered across several scientific and professional communities. The conference also aims at providing a forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas, for example, through industry papers and demo papers.
The conference proceedings will be published as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. In order to achieve broad attendance, the DEBS organizers will strive to keep conference registration rates affordable. In particular, student participation will be strongly encouraged through special rates.
