O. Stukach, "Activities of the Tomsk IEEE ComSoc Chapter in 2010". In Global Communications Newsletter, January 2011, p. 3-4.
Tomsk IEEE Chapter is part of the IEEE Russia Siberia Section and
the IEEE Region 8 (Europe, Middle-East and Africa region). Chapter
has been initially established in Tomsk after approval of the Russia
Section on January 1, 2000. The Chapter is created as part of the
following Societies: Electron Devices (ED), Antennas and Propagation (AP), Communications (COM), Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT),
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
Efforts to increase the level of IEEE activities in the Siberia and
Far East regions of Russia are in progress. There has been significant
progress in the last several years. A good example is the International
Siberian Conference on Control and Communications SIBCON which was
technically co-sponsored by IEEE, was attended by 300 participants
from 8 countries. The unique opportunity to meet and to hear the
views of different participants was of great value and an excellent
forum for focusing on the many common technology issues.
In the first half of this year, the Tomsk Joint Chapter has held
two technical meetings and we plan to hold another four meetings
by the end of the year. In April, we presented seminar "Join the
ComSoc" to our students and plan to extend this direction of our
activity. This experience contributes to motivate us to continue
working hard for the ComSoc community.
We really appreciate the opportunity of sharing ideas via the ComSoc
hosting of our website http://chapters.comsoc.org/ tomsk. It will
encourage us to increase Tomsk Chapter member's activity as well
as all Russian ComSoc members and expand our projects especially
Web project "ComSoc in Russian"
Currently, the chapter programs are focused on three main aspects:
an effort to increase membership by participation of scientists and
students in IEEE activities, SIBINFO student paper contest, and cooperation
in organizing international conferences covering various aspects
of electronics, radar, communications etc. We are proud that Tomsk
Chapter has been selected as one of the four winners of the 2010 Chapter Achievement
Award. We will continue to make efforts to include our specialists
in the scientific and educational process worldwide; and in this
respect, count on further precious assistance of IEEE ComSoc.
