Member of Geographic Areas Awards and Recognition

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010


Deadline for nominations is October 15, 2010


Call for Nominations – Recognizing Outstanding IEEE Volunteers and Contributors

You can help recognize the efforts of outstanding volunteers by nominating someone for one of the prestigious Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Awards. Each prestigious award has a unique mission and criteria and offers the opportunity to honor distinguished colleagues, inspiring teachers, and corporate leaders, for their member engagement initiatives.

If you know someone who has made substantial contributions to the MGA Mission (Inspire, Enable, Empower and Engage Members of IEEE) at the local level, through innovative projects, exemplary leadership, service, or by fulfilling the goals as related to transnational activities, consider nominating them for one of the following awards:

In addition to these individual MGA Awards, MGA also presents Friend of IEEE Member and Geographic Activities Awards, which specifically recognize support provided to IEEE and its members, in support of its goals, by firms, divisions of firms, or individuals. Nominators can submit Individuals or Organizations for Friend Awards, and awards can be earned at the Supporting or Sustaining level. Please complete the Online Award Nomination Form. There is no deadline for these awards, which are presented throughout the year.

The two most recent IEEE Winnipeg Section Award recipients were Stephen Dueck and Dawn Nedohin-Macek in 2006 for their contributions to the IEEE Gold Affinity Group.


Please e-mail MGA Awards with any questions about the MGA Awards and Recognition Program.

Fly-By-Wireless Workshop

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

Fly-By-Wireless Workshop


August 24-27, 2010.


University of Maine, Orono, Maine, USA.


2010 International CANEUS Fly By Wireless Workshop is a unique opportunity for academics, industry leaders and small businesses with interest in Aerospace, Wireless, and Nanotechnology to partner with big players such
as Boeing, Lockheed, GE, NASA, Canadian and European Space agencies.

This workshop is sponsored by CANEUS, IEEE Region-1 (Northeast USA), IEEE Region-7 (Canada), IEEE Montreal Section, IEEE Maine Section, WiSe-Net Lab, NASA, MSGC and the following IEEE COMSOC Technical Committees: Ad Hoc & Sensor Networks, Communications Switching & Routing, Tactical Communications & Operations, and Wireless Communications Committees. Tech co-sponsorship by IEEE COMSOC, AES, and UFFC societies are pending approval.

2010 CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless Workshop will bring together leaders from aerospace industry, academia, and government agencies, to discuss recent advances in wireless communications focused on applications in aerospace industry. The workshop will be hosted by the University of Maine, Orono, Maine, USA, on August 24-27, 2010. The Workshop remains a unique forum for wireless technology providers and end-users to discuss aerospace roadmap for future research and development and form meaningful partnerships. New innovations such as battery-free wireless sensor systems, reliable multi-tier wireless networks, and high temperature sensors will be highlighted at the workshop. Ultimately, this effort will contribute to minimizing cables and connectors across the aerospace industry by providing more reliable and higher performance wireless alternatives at lower cost.

The 2010 CANEUS FWB Workshop, third of its kind, builds on the successes from the 1st Joint CANEUS/NASA 2007 “Fly-by-Wireless” Workshop, held in March 2007 at Grapevine, Texas and the 2nd CANEUS “Fly-by-Wireless” Workshop held in June 2009 at Montreal, Canada. The first CANEUS/NASA FBW workshop grew out of an identified need from the CANEUS 2006 Aerospace End-User Committee on SHM – Structural Health Monitoring held at Toulouse. Organizations from the Americas, Europe and Asia regions, attending CANEUS workshops, have taken concrete steps to continue development of their wireless programs and also establish successful collaborative projects, e.g. Wi-Testbed, Frequecy Spectrum, Wi-Engine, Wi-SHM, Wi-Sense, and others.

Paper Submission:

Optional Paper Submission (Not required for attendance).  Original papers in the area of wireless communications with applications in aerospace industry may be submitted in an extended summary format (2 pages, Font 12, double column, IEEE Format) with sufficient details to allow a critical review. The paper submission deadline is 5:00PM EDT, July 30, 2010. Papers shall be submitted using the EDAS paper submission system to one of the two “application end user” or “technology developer” categories.


For more info and registration please visit workshop website Deadline for early registration is July 30, 2010, 5:00pm EST. Registration Fee is $150 and includes 3 lunches, one dinner and all morning and afternoon breaks plus paper abstracts and presentations on a CD . The registration fee will increase to $250 after July 30, 2010 and will close on August 14 or when the limit of 250 attendees is reached, whichever comes first. IEEE Members will receive a $50 rebate on their registration at the event. Professional Engineers will receive (28 hours of PDH/CEU) for attending.
