It is a pleasure to announce the formation of
the joint LEOS Chapter and committee for NSW Section in 2007. Many
thanks to David Moss (now in Canada) and other members who helped
initially set up the Chapter in 2005, and who also attended the
inaugural AGM last November.
The Chapter Secretary is Stephen Hanham. The
LEOS Chapter has been made joint chapter with the Circuits and
Systems and Solid State Circuits Chapters as there are increasing
synergies between these areas and it will widen the opportunities
for technical meetings.
I will be working with Stephen and other
members to ensure we have about four technical meetings this year in
the form of site visits and technical presentations. So far we have
talks scheduled to be given by Dr Ian Clarke (Optium) and Professor
Chennupati Jagadish (ACT LEOS Chapter and LEOS Distinguished
Lecturer - Emeritus) in the pipeline, and a visit to CSIRO National
Measurements Laboratory being organised. Details of these events and
others will be in the next issue of Circuit, and will be emailed to
members beforehand. These events can also be found at our News and
events weblink on the main webpage.
I look forward to meeting you at all the
technical meetings, which are a great way to keep in touch with
other members and meet new people with similar interests. There are
approximately 40 LEOS members and 63 SSC/CAS members in the NSW
Section in January 2007.
We will set up a Chapter specific website to
provide details of events and other information to members. Keep an
eye on: http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r10/nsw/subpages/ch_leosssccs/ch_leosssccs.htm
If any members have relevant information or
links to place on this website please forward the information to me
