“The IAS board recently approved the formation of a new technical committee: The Electrical Safety Committee. This is a time for pride for the IAS technical family, first because this represents the culmination of over 20 years of hard work, and also because it represents the best of we all try to do, “foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity” (IEEE mission statement).”

-Bruno Lequesne, President IAS
May 2012
