Members can now get a cheaper subscription to the IEEE Xplore digital
library.  The Member Digital Library Basic package offers three full-text
article downloads a month for a monthly fee of US $15. Subscribers can
roll over unused downloads for up to 12 months. For more information,

On 29 April 2010, the Franklin Institute held its ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to honor Gerhard Sessler and James West with Franklin Institute medals for their invention of the practical electret microphone. The day before the ceremony, a symposium took place at Temple University in which Dr. Flanagan summarized some of the history of the electret microphone.

In his talk, Dr. Flanagan shared his perspective on invention of the device that is a commodity nowadays and how the initial incentive was telephony.

IEEE has announced the launch of the IEEE eLearning Library, composed of nearly 200 short, online courses in core and emerging technologies.

IEEE has announced a new subscription option available only to IEEE members.

IEEE Member Digital Library Basic provides IEEE members with three new full-text article downloads every month, plus the ability to rollover unused downloads for 12 months, for only US$15 per month.

Professor Al Bovik's research interests broadly span the areas of digital video, image processing, and computational aspects of biological visual perception. In the September issue of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, Dr. Bovik published a 7 page-long article, not on his exciting research, but on how to optimize the educational experience of students learning the subject of video processing.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI) is a flagship international fellowship program for developing the next generation of globally engaged U.S. scientists and engineers knowledgeable about the Asian and Pacific regions. The Summer Institutes are hosted by foreign counterparts committed to increasing opportunities for young U.S. researchers to work in research facilities and with host mentors abroad.

Technical Activities has expanded its volunteer training program to include short, on-line volunteer training modules.   Each module will focus on information or a process that will assist volunteers in their IEEE activities.  

The goal of the program is to provide key volunteer information in a convenient, user-friendly format.  A listing of currently-available modules can be found at:

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery is hosting a 49-week scientific program in 2012. The deadline for 5-day Workshop and Summer School proposals is September 27, 2010.

The new IEEE Xplore self-paced training modules are designed to give you a quick overview of the most-requested training topics, including (a) Basic and Advanced Searching with IEEE Xplore and (b) Personalization in IEEE Xplore, including setting alerts.
