The elections of four new Chapter Chairs are over and were almost very successful. For three chapters, new Chapter Chairs were elected. The new Chapter Chairs are as follows:

  1. Education Chapter: Tiia Rüütmann (activity 71%, all for);
  2. Computer / Communications / Information Theory Joint Chapter: Alar Kuusik (activity 37%, all for);
  3. Signal Processing / Circuits and Systems / Solid-State Circuits Joint Chapter: Gholamreza Anbarjafari (activity 58%, all for).

For the fourth chapter, Instrumentation and Measurement / Electron Devices / Engineering in Medicine and Biology Joint Chapter, the election results are contradicting and it is possible that new elections must be organized.

Friday, April 21st 10:00 – 11:30, Tallinn University of Technology room U02-409.

IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer Jalel Ben-Othman (Professor at University of Paris 13).

Wireless and mobile networks have many advantages as easy deployment, user mobility and providing network access to users regardless to their locations. The most critical problems that arise in these networks are on the resource allocations as the bandwidth is limited, the propagation (multi-path, fading, distortion) and security since communications are transmitted over radio waves. In parallel new architectures/technologies have been emerging as Vehicular Networks and Internet of Things.

In this lecture, Prof Ben-Othman will present issues about availability problems in those networks and architecture, He will focus on Vehicular Networks, and he will present some works we have done and other works to improve security in those systems.

Prof. Ben-Othman received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees both in Computer Science from the University of  Pierre et Marie Curie, (Paris 6) France in 1992, and 1994 respectively. He received his PhD degree from the University of Versailles, France, in 1998.

6. novembril 2016 lahkus ootamatult meie hulgast IEEE 20-aastase staažiga liige Eiko Kängsep.

IEEE Eesti sektsioon mälestab Eikot kui head kolleegi, inseneri ja vabatahtlikku ning avaldab kaastunnet tema lähedastele. Eiko on olnud IEEE Eesti sektsiooni kohusetundlik ja alati abivalmis varahaldur selle algusaastatest 2005-2006 kuni lahkumispäevani, enam kui 10 aastat. Eiko valmistus ametit sujuvat üle andma ning tema kaasalöömine IEEE-s juures jätkunuks – lisaks varahaldurile oli Eiko sektsiooni Hariduse ja SP/CAS/SSC üksuste liige. Sektsiooni senistel muutlikel tegevus- ja kasvuaastatel on Eiko olnud üheks kindlaks ühenduslüliks, mis on aidanud sektsiooni pärandit tekitada ja hoida. Peame seda meeles.

Ärasaatmine 10. novembril 2016 kell 14:00 Pärnamäe Krematooriumis.
