month of ACE
Annual Convention is being organized from Dec 15 to Dec 17 at Mumbai.
The Bombay Section, one of our largest and the most dynamic sections,
is the host. IEEE President Dr Bruce Eisenstein has accepted our invitation
to visit India for the Convention. The ACE Program is being co-ordinated
by a committee of distinguished members, which includes Mr. Raju Hira,
Prof Siva Kumar, the Chairman of the Section Mr. R. Muralidharan, and
Mr. Quraish Bakir, the General Chair for ACE - 2000. The program is
expected to be quite interesting and relevant to the needs of a large
number of members. I, therefore, want to invite our members from all
over the country to derive maximum advantage from the excellent program
by registering as delegates.
The detailed program
and the form for registration can be located at
HiPC-2000 and GRID-2000
(Dec 17 - Dec 20) in Bangalore, CIT-2000 (Dec 21-23) in Bhubaneswar,
WDC-2000 (Dec 28-30 ) in Jadavpur are other conferences, which have
been reported in the previous issues of the Bulletin. Besides the President
will be visiting some of our other Sections, where technical programs
as well as social get-togethers with the members have been planned.
members and GOLD members
India Council has
made major efforts to see that IEEE becomes the platform of choice for
student members and young professionals. In July 2000 was organized
the first All India Student Congress at Chennai. In early 2001 is being
organized the second Congress at Mumbai. VESIT Student Branch is hosting
Active Student Branches,
which would like to host such Congresses during the years 2002 and 2003,
may convey their interest to me so that India Council may be able to
select appropriate venues.
In Tamil Nadu one
beneficial impact of the student Congress has been that as many as 15
institutions are working on establishing new Student Branches. The Chairman
of the Madras Section has informed me that he is expecting 20 new Branches
to be formed before 2001 is over. He is also expecting to revitalize
the existing Student branches during the year. We expect that the Student
Congresses will have a similar effect all over the country so that all
the brilliant young persons, who are being trained to become professionals
of tomorrow, will be able to enrol as IEEE student members.

Workshop on Electro Magnetic Compatibility of Electrical/Electronic
Equipment at Delhi
IEEE PES-IAS DELHI CHAPTER, INDIA ED-MTT CHAPTER & DELHI SECTION)
India International Centre,
New Delhi January 22, 2001
order to reduce Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) of electrical
/ electronic equipment so that the disturbances generated do not
adversely affect operation of other equipment / systems, like,
controls, communications, etc., Electro-Magnetic Compatibility
(EMC) standards have been framed. On the other hand as complete
mitigation is not possible, it calls for some level of immunity
for every equipment to such externally generated disturbances
and this is to be taken care of while designing. With a view to
provide a good understanding of the problem, the EMC Standards
and design.methods to comply with the standards, a day-long workshop
is being held by the IEEE PES-IAS Delhi Chapter, India ED-MTT
Chapter and Delhi Section on January 22, 2001 in Delhi.
workshop will provide an opportunity to learn more about the emission
and immunity requirement of electrical / electronic equipment
under a comprehensive EMC regulation environment, from low frequency
harmonics and flicker to conducted EMI and radiated noises and
several immunity standards, either generic or product specific.
- Designers and
manufacturers of electrical / electronic equipment will be in a position
to interact with the eminent Italian Engineers on Electro-Magnetic
Compatibility requirement of these equipment.
- Workshop is limited
to 50 registrants.
Main resource person
for the workshop is Dr. Paolo Tenti, Professor of Power Electronics,
University of Padova, Italy. Dr Tenti is a Fellow of IEEE and a Distinguished
Lecturer of Industry Applications Society (IAS) of IEEE. He is also
the President of CREIVEN (Italian Research Consortium for Industrial
- In the Sessions
likely to join are the other delegates from Italy, such as, Mr. Giordano
Malfermo, President and CEO of ELTRA Company (manufacturing encoders),
President of the Electronic Section of the Industrial Association
of Vicenza, Dr. Lamberto Brunelli, CEO of TDE-MACNO (manufacturer
of servo-drives), representatives from the Industrial Association
of Treviso, etc.

a Millennium, a Century and an active year with IEEE
is the last issue of IEEE India Bulletin that will reach the
hands of our readers before the end of 2000. The end of the
year 2000, which in fact is also the end of a remarkable century
in which IEEE and the technologies which it represents had their
say in almost all matters. It also graduates the turn over of
the second millennium which saw immense social progress with
the use of ever growing science and technology. In that sense
E and E and the IEEE in its present form and in its original
forms of its predecessor constituents have contributed in a
significant manner, for which all volunteers and members of
IEEE can rightly be proud of their contributions, collectively
India, we have this unique opportunity of a momentous meeting
at Mumbai in the form of ACE 2000 from 15 to 17 of this month.
As the detailed programme published elsewhere in this issue
indicates, it is worth attending. Let us look beyond 2000 and
resolve as to what IEEE can contribute at the beginning of the
third millennium, for continuing the social development, more
so in improving the quality of life , in providing sophisticated
forms of energy that one third of the global population - 2
billion people - now lack, as also better and better means of
communication for their sustained growth and leisure.
let us meet at Mumbai during the middle of this month
