Volunteers Needed for 2017 IEEE I&CPS conference

Volunteers are needed for 2017 IEEE/IAS 53rd Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Technical Conference (I&CPS). Volunteers are primarily needed for the position of the registration desk.

The IEEE/IAS 53rd I&CPS will be held from Monday, 8 May 2017 through Thursday, 11 May 2017 at Niagara Falls, Ontario. The conference also provides two tutorials: "CSA Z462 - Workplace Electrical Safety - Upcoming 2018 Edition - Changes and What You Need to Know?" and "teach how to prepare the forms necessary to apply for IEEE Fellow", which would be beneficial to all Senior IEEE Members who wish to elevate their status to Fellow.

To volunteer, contact Sergio Panetta at spanetta@ieee.org (Tel: 416 319-5413). Provide Sergio with your name, address, phone number, email address, and available dates

Introduction to Industrial and Distribution Systems Transients and Applications of EMTP/ATP

Date: April 24-25, 2017 (8:00 AM - 5:00 PM)
Location: Windsor A Room, The Carriage House Inn, 9030 MacLeod Trail S, Calgary, AB
Register at: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/42567 Registration closes April 13
More info at: here

This tutorial includes an introduction to industrial and distribution system transients topics such as:

  • Transient Recovery Voltage (TRV)
  • Capacitor Switching
  • Large Motor Capacitance/Reactance Starting
  • Ferroresonance in Potential Transformer (PT) and distribution transformers
  • Induction in fences and pipelines parallel to a long run of overhead line
  • Harmonics in Distribution Systems, and
  • Other relevant applications
The tutorial will introduce the EMTP/ATP and the associated ATPDraw preprocessor. Participants will benefit from the hands-on portion of the tutorial to familiarize attendees with the software by developing examples using these tools.

Please note: The official process for licencing of the royalty-free version of the software is found at the following website: http://eeug-test.hostingkunde.de/index.php/how-to/be-licenced. Participants are advised the licencing process can take a few weeks and is only available to those qualified under the licensing agreement.

4th Annual 5G Huddle in Ottawa

Date: May 31 - June 1, 2017
Location: Ottawa, Canada

On May 31 & June 1 2017, the Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) will host its 4th Annual 5G Huddle in Ottawa, Canada as part of the celebrations of Canada's 150th birthday, a move which is supported by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) and the Radio Advisory Board of Canada (RABC). 5G will bring about fundamental changes in the way society and businesses function and how citizens live. It will drive innovation in vertical markets everywhere. But even the most innovative carriers are not expected to use 5G commercially before 2020, and large-scale 5G rollout will most probably take even longer.

With this in mind, the 2017 5G Huddle will focus concretely on the transition from 4G to 5G, i.e. on what needs to be done to lay the groundwork for widespread 5G adoption and ensure that we are prepared to capitalise on the opportunities and benefits ahead. Please visit www.5ghuddle.ch

WWRF had these Huddles on 5G since 2014. The event is supported by ISED, RABC, CWTA and ITAC. The speakers are a mix of Canadian and International speakers. The event is managed by Forum Europe.

WWRF has programme to recognize people who have contributed to developing wireless. In Canada, we have recognized Professor David Falconer of Carleton University on his work of LTE and has been quoted in over many research papers, Mr. Robert Simmonds (formerly of Clearnet fame) and we will be recognizing Mr. Brian O'Shaughnessy, SVP & CTO, Converged Networks, Shaw Communications and Freedom Mobile at our 5ghuddle in May.

Call for Nominations: IEEE Awards

The IEEE Awards Board administers the highest medals, awards, and recognitions presented by IEEE on behalf of the IEEE Board of Directors. All IEEE members are encouraged to submit a nomination for a worthy candidate within their technical fields.

Nominations are due 15 June annually for IEEE Medals and IEEE Recognitions. IEEE Medals are the highest recognition within the IEEE awards hierarchy, with the prestigious IEEE Medal of Honor as the premier award. They embrace broad and significant contributions within the technical fields of interest of IEEE. IEEE Recognitions reward member's individual contributions to IEEE, published papers, and corporate advancements within the IEEE fields of interest. Recipients of IEEE Medals and Recognitions are recognized at the annual IEEE Honors Ceremony.

Nomination forms and award-specific criteria can be downloaded from:
http://www.ieee.org/about/awards/medals/index_%20medals.html, and
http://www.ieee.org/about/awards/recognitions/index_%20recognitions.html.

Since 1917, the IEEE Awards Program has paid tribute to technical professionals whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, the engineering profession, and humanity. By this means, the image and prestige of the organization, its members, and the profession are all enhanced.
