Minutes of the Sensor Division Executive Committee of the ECS
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Sunday 12 May 2002


Attendance: Stetter, Cook, Wong-Ng, Mukundan, Hunter, Liu
1. Minutes not approved here cuz not here. Will do in Salt Lake.
2. Treasurer report: current balance =+$34,410.37 + sensor division award fund =+ $6,114.88 - both are up but award fund will be down after award in Salt Lake.

3. We discussed transfer of $10,000 of funds from the custodial account to award account to make is self sustaining. Our goal is to eventually make the award account self-sustaining. Defer decision to next meeting.

4. Sensor Division Outstanding Achievement Award goes to: Masuo Aizawa. Many thanks to Peter Hesketh who chaired the awards committee for last year.


5. Mukund will attend the Honors and Awards committee meeting at ECS, 4:00 p.m., Monday, May 13, 2002; Philadelphia Marriott Hotel, Meeting Room 413, Level 4. He will report for the Sensor Division and let us know what is needed in order to show up in Salt Lake with a Check and Award Plaque for Prof. Aizawa.


6. Discussion of increases in the budget for the student travel grants was deferred. In Salt Lake Meeting [October 20-25, 2002], we will discuss increasing the amount to $1,500 per meeting or $3,000 per year. We need more students [our future sensor division members and workers] at the meeting.


7. We discussed the need for a communications committee and we are actively seeking one or more volunteers from the sensor division to perform this function. Duties include:

8. Need someone to help write “History of Sensors and the ECS. C.C. Liu volunteered to help J. Stetter write an article for the Interface Journal for 2002.

 

9. Slate of Officers for 2003-2005:

University Park, PA 16802 Tel: 814-863-7847; FAX: 814-863-7846e-mail: ryguo@psu.edu and Winnie Wong-Ng@nist.gov and Larry Cook will work with Professor Guo and the ECS sensor division people – Gary Hunter, sensors and Cindy Bruckner-Lea – Biosensors to put on this meeting. We expect a 3-5 day meeting and it will generally cover microwave, physical, optical, chemical, and biochemical sensors. We will discuss a proceedings volume. This will be an effort of the sensor division and AcerS.Sensor Division will also propose a general session – “Sensors, Actuators, and Microsystems” – Hunter, Mukundan, and others identified by Salt Lake meeting.
San Antonio – 204th Meeting ECS – Suggest symposia to Symposium Planning Committee – Philly meeting [5/02]Develop final submission [Salt Lake – 10/02]
Call for papers – due Paris 5/03
Abstracts due - Suggested Symposia for submission Tuesday am subcommittee meeting.1. Environmental, Fuel Cell, and Advanced Automotive Sensors – R. Mukundan and F. DiMeo of the Sensor Division.
2. SENSORS AND ACTUATORS AND MICROSYSTEMS – General Session – Hesketh, Hunter, Bruckner-Lea.
The Sensor Division discussed the need to a general session at each ECS symposium. While the sensor division will co-sponsor topical symposia and focused symposia [e.g., ceramic sensors and high temperature sensors with HTM division of ECS] with other ECS divisions, the sensor division feels the need for a general symposia for its own papers and general membership to contribute at each meeting. It will be Called “SENSORS AND ACTUATIORS AND MICROSYSTEMS – general session” and go into each call starting with the Paris meeting.
See Appendix 2 for list of past and future symposia for Sensor Division for all time.


11. J. Stetter has started a “manual” for ECS Sensor Division Operation. This should make the duties of the Division and Chairman easier to pass from chair to chair. See Appendix 3.

 

12. Appendix 4 – has a summary of what happened at the Symposium Subcommittee Meeting Tuesday morning and the Technical Affairs committee meeting Tuesday afternoon and the BOD meeting Thursday [attended by J. Stetter].Here it is! End of meeting – C.C. Liu motioned, second by Gary Hunter, meeting adjourned.Respectfully Submitted by;

Appendix 3 MANUAL FOR SENSOR DIVISION OPERATIONIn general, it is the duty of the Chairman and executive committee that the business of the sensor division is continued through the term of office.
Main functions: Organize Symposia, Award, and routine business.Run Executive Committee meeting at each ECS Meeting – delegate or submit minutes to HQ and transact business as comes before us; recommend actions that promote the sensor division. Expenditures for symposia, education, students, award, …
Develop list of symposia topics and symposium organizers for each meeting – working in advance of course. Current year meeting are set in prior years. Get membership to pariticipate in Organizing and Running symposia – See ECS manual for symposium organizers for timetables and stuff to do.
Fall – Organize with HQ [they do the work] and run sensor division luncheon for membership. Give report at luncheon… announce award, announce change in officers.
Sensor Division Outstanding Achievement Award. Each even year [e.g., Fall 2002, award to Prof. Masuo Aizawa] at fall ECS Meeting in Salt Lake, give Sensor Division Outstanding Achievement Award. The procedure is to appoint an award committee at the fall meeting of the odd year [e.g. fall 2001, Peter Hesketh, past sensor division chair, was the chairman for the award committee and he selected 4 other division members to work with him]. Got awardee selected by vote by Philadelphia meeting so approvals from ECS can be obtained and award presented in Fall 2002 Luncheon. See HQ for details.
Get slate of Officers ready for two year terms of office – Vice-chair becomes chair; chair becomes past chair; secretary treasurer becomes vice chair… get a new secretary treasurer. See HQ for details.
There is an HQ manual for Division Chairs, read it.
