IEEE Ethics Video

For some time the EMCC has been concerned that university engineering programs have not been giving appropriate visibility to ethics education in the engineering curriculum.

 

To address this issue, the EMCC has produced a 45-minute video that can be used in university electrical and computer engineering programs that will assist faculty and students in gaining a better understanding of the need for ethical conduct within the practice of engineering and can provide students and faculty with approaches that will enable a better focus on ethics in the context of the university classroom.

 

 

We would appreciate your assistance in making university engineering programs in your region aware of this new teaching aid.

 

The 45-minute video is archived at IEEE.TV and can be accessed at any time at the following URL.

Announcing the 2021 Volunteer Leadership Training Program

The MGA Training Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 Volunteer Leadership Training (VoLT) Program and will begin accepting applications for the program on 1 June 2021.

The VoLT Program prepares IEEE volunteers for leadership roles in their local units and beyond. The program’s key goals are to:

  • Accelerate volunteer’s knowledge of the IEEE’s organization, products, services, and resources
  • Help volunteers understand their roles within their local units and within the entire organization
  • Create a succession tool that develops and prepares future IEEE volunteer leaders

Since the program’s launch in 2013, over 350 volunteers graduated from the program. Our VoLT graduates represent all 10 IEEE Regions and over 100 Sections.
The volunteers who graduated from the program took the time to undergo the training, knowing the commitment involved.

We hope the result will be a more energized, well-informed, and engaged volunteer for your Section and Region.

 

In the coming days, announcements of the 2021 VoLT Program will be made through enotice, MGA Scoop, social media, and other channels, inviting eligible candidates to apply for the program.

 

Applications will be accepted from 1 June 2021 through 21 July 2021.

Applicants will be notified of their application status mid-to late-August.

 

We kindly ask you to share the news with your fellow IEEE members and volunteers and encourage those who may be interested to learn more about the program and apply this year.

More information about the VoLT Program, including application requirements, can be found in the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) https://ieee-elearning.org/CLE/static/mga_voltprogram.html (you may be prompted to log in to the CLE with your IEEE account).

 

Thank you for your support, and if you have any questions regarding the program, please let us know at volt@ieee.org.

History of IEEE Region 8

For a first introduction to the history of IEEE Region 8, your are advised to consult the following sources. Do not forget to check on a regular basis the History Activities that are currently going on in Region 8.

Region 8 history book

  • The book A short history of IRE Region 9 / IEEE Region 8 (.pdf) presents a history of IEEE Region 8 spanning its origins from the IRE Region in Europe, through the IRE/AIEE merger forming the IEEE and subsequently to the present day Region 8 consisting of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Included are personal reflections of past directors, committee meetings and conferences, student activities, award recipients from Region 8, and Region 8 history papers presented at HISTELCON 2012. A number of archival documents are attached as appendices, including ephemera and minutes from early Region 8 Committee meetings. [See also IEEE History Center Newsletter 90, Nov. 2012, p. 9 (.pdf).]
    Note that if you click on the link above and open the Document Outline in the left-hand side bar, you can immediately jump to any section of the book and easily navigate through it.
  • The early history of our Region is adequately described by its initiator (Bruce B. Barrow) in the article The Benelux Section and Early IRE/IEEE Activity in Europe (.pdf) by Jan Biemond and Bruce B. Barrow, presented at the 2009 IEEE Conference on the History of Technical Societies, Philadelphia, PA, 5–7 August 2009; the article is available in IEEEXplore. The important parts are section III IRE Region in Europe, section IV IRE/AIEE Merger, and the appendix Why in the World in Europe? See also Sections 1.2 and 1.5 in the book. You may also want to read the article by Robert C. Winton, The start of Region 8 and its Sections (see Section 1.4 of the book), which is taken from the Region 8 Centennial Review (.pdf), published on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of IEEE, 1984.
  • Sections 2.1-3 describe the later history of Region 8 (.pdf): 2.1 The creation of IEEE Region 10 and the extension of Region 8, 2.2 The Eastward spread of Sections in Region 8, prepared by Tony Davies, and 2.3 Yugoslavia Section from 1971 to 1992, prepared by Baldomir Zajc.
  • The book contains four history papers presented at HISTELCON 2012 in Pavia, Italy, 5–7 September 2012. Note that the papers by Jean D. Lebel and Jacob Baal-Schem as they appear in IEEEXplore are NOT the final versions that have been submitted to the conference organizers; the two papers that are included in the book are the actual final versions.
  • The book also contains personal reflections by some Past Region 8 Directors: Jean D. Lebel (Director 1965–1966), Rolf Remshardt (Treasurer 1983–1998, Director 1999–2000), Anthony C. Davies (Director 2003–2004), and Baldomir Zajc (Director 2005–2006). Moreover, it provides links to transcripts, available on the Engineering and Technology History Wiki (ETHW), of oral history interviews that were held with some Past Region 8 Directors.
  • Chronological list of Region 8 Sections and Subsections (.xlsx) See also Section 2.4 in the Region 8 history book with several additional remarks.
  • Chronological list of Region 8 Directors (.xlsx) See Section 3.1 in the Region 8 history book for other members of the Region 8 Operating Committee.
  • Chronological list of Region 8 Committee meetings (.xlsx) See also Chapter 5 in the Region 8 history book. (Scanned) versions of the minutes are available for download; see below under Other sources on the Region 8 website.
  • Chronological list of Region 8 Conferences (.xlsx) See also Chapter 6 in the Region 8 history book.
  • Chronological list of Region 8 Student Paper Contest finals (.xlsx) See Section 7.5 in the Region 8 history book for the details.
  • Chronological list of Region 8 Award Recipients (.xlsx) See Chapter 8 in the Region 8 history book for the citations.
  • Chronological list of IEEE Milestones in Region 8 (.xlsx) with links to ETHW and to their locations on Google maps. See Section 9.2 in the Region 8 history book for the citations.

Engineering and Technology History Wiki

Other sources on the Region 8 website

  • IEEE Region 8 News, our newsletter that started in 1967, provides a valuable source of information of what happened in Region 8. IEEE Region 8 News is aiming to showcase events, achievements and news items from across the Region. As each issue is produced with specific deadlines throughout the year, it is an ideal medium for reporting on past events, meetings or stories — with the ability to promote future events. The archive of back issues is available online from 2002 onwards; scanned versions of older issues of Region 8 News and its predecessors can be found here.
  • IEEE Region 8 Today provides an advanced search option to find previous posts. IEEE Region 8 Today was founded on May 2018, aiming to bring to you the latest news of the active members within our Region; moreover, it shares technological information from the IEEE. A large variety of Tech News, IEEE volunteers news, Interviews of people who have contributed a lot to our Region, and many more interesting fields, can be found on our news web portal.
  • You may also want to check the (scanned) minutes of the Region 8 Committee meetings (and the agenda books of the more recent ones). With the exception of four Region 8 Committee meetings — in Geneva (7 September 1965), Leuven (16 September 1966), Tel Aviv (24 October 1968), and Dubrovnik (25-26 October 1974) — the minutes have been collected in five pdf files, which are available for download:
    1962-1970 (.pdf), 1971-1983 (.pdf), 1984-1993 (.pdf), 1994-2009 (.pdf), and 2010-2020 (.pdf).
