A long time back, an interest was posted on si-list regarding formalizing the SI
community into an IEEE Society. Behind the scenes work was place into motion. The
IEEE EMCS Society has decided to consider creation of a new Technical Committee
identified as TC-10, "Signal Integrity and Microelectronic Technology." One function of
TC-10 is to develop an internal organization that represents SI engineers worldwide.
The EMC Society Board of Directors has recognized a need for signal integrity and will
provide a supporting role in the creation and management of TC-10, including
financial support. In fact, the "Call for Papers" for next year's International Symposium
in Montreal, Canada has Signal Integrity as a separate category (abstract deadline
was October 15, 2000). Without a IEEE focus group on signal integrity and
nanotechnology development within the semiconductor industry, products will not
work, not to mention compliance with international EMC standards.
One problem with development of this special interest group is
membership/leadership. An interest exist, and many subscribers on si-list will want to
join, plus others not on si-list worldwide. A dedicated group
of officers is required for several years during the formation stage. A member of the
IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors will guide you through the process as a mentor,
minimizing your work. He will educate and train
committee members on various aspects of IEEE policies and procedures along with
This email is a "Call for Volunteers". We request anyone interested in participating in
this organization to contact the EMCS Board immediately at the email address below.
The chairman of TC-10 must be an EMCS member. Other board members do not
have to be members of EMCS, however, it is highly desired. By participating in this
organization, one will achieve "international name recognition" as one who helped
develop one of the fastest growing interest groups in the field of engineering.
The person acting as chairman is requested to attending the next IEEE EMCS BOD
meeting in Tampa, Florida on November 16, 2000. Although attendance is not
mandatory, he/she will be represented by a board member. At this meeting, a
presentation must be made related to organization and management. This
presentation will be prepared by the mentor, along with your unique ideas on how to
elevate a fantastic group of engineers into a formal society within the IEEE, thus
saving one from having to make a last
minute trip and expense
Please send all inquiries and interest to: EMCS-TC10@ieee.org. Since the November
meeting is quickly approaching, much work needs to be done.
This email is for information purposes only. Please do "NOT" open a thread of
discussion on si-list. Nothing will be gained except to take up bandwidth. Again, all
comments to EMCS-TC10@ieee.org.
We look forward to meet you in the founding and meetings of TC-10.
Elya B. Joffe - Member of the EMC-S BoD
