President's Perspective

Activities and Ventures

Current Activities
The I&M Society has several primary activities. It publishes the Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement and the Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine. The society also supports Technical Committees and sponsors conferences. The Technical Committees prepare technical standards and each committee provides additional guidelines for particular technical arenas. Conferences, of course, are important for networking and exchanging the latest technical information.

New Ventures
The society plans to enhance its programs by providing more educational avenues and technical materials. Here are some ventures that the I&M leadership is currently developing:
• education through the International Measurement University (IMU),
• conference tutorials, both paid and free,
• free web tutorials,
• Distinguished Lecturer Program,
• website utility and second Life on IEEE site,
• books on instrumentation fundamentals.

We are considering more possibilities, too. Your thoughts and suggestions are most welcome. We would love to have more people involved in these activities and future ones, too. Please consider volunteering and collaborating with us to provide even greater value to you and for our membership.
We frequently update the I&M Society's website at http://www.ieee-ims.org/main/. It is a good starting point for checking out the current activities and initiatives of the society and where you might contribute.
