Welcome to the Victorian Chapter of IEEE Electron Devices (ED) and Photonics Society (IPS) (formerly Lasers & Electro-Optics and Electron Devices Society, LEOS). We are an active committee based in Melbourne. We host regular events such as technical seminars (highly reputable members or industry, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Programs and many more), workshops, support conferences, site visits and social activities for the members in Victoria and Tasmania throughout the year. Please keep an eye on the Victorian Section eNotice for any upcoming activities. This chapter will provide various events around the year and members can contact to provide any suggestions on what they will like to see from this chapter and we will endeavour to undertake these activities in accordance to the IEEE mission and necessities of the chapter. In 2018, we will be planning to form an ED/IPS Student Branch in Victoria and Tasmania and then provide support to other IEEE Sections in Australia. We look forward seeing you at our next event. For any other enquiries, you may contact our committee members.
Chair 2018/19 – Dr Yuvaraja Visagathilagar, BEng (Comms. Eng, 1st Class Hons.), PhD, SMIEEE, AMBCS,MOSA, MSPIE, MAIP, MAOS, PRINCE2®. He has been a member of IEEE for over 25+ years and has provided significant contribution to organisation as student to senior member within Victorian Section. He can be contacted to provide further support including volunteer roles, reference for Senior Member elevation and suggestions for providing any member necessities where required. He has over 23+ years of extensive experience and expertise in engineering in industry and academia.
Other members of the society are encouraged to participate, contribute, nominate or provide suitable candidates for other volunteer roles as Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Event Coordinator or Student representative. Please contact Dr Yuvaraja Visagathilagar (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any further discussion or contribution to be very active for the member community and industries.
About IEEE Electron Devices Society – The field of interest for EDS includes all electron and ion based devices, in their classical or quantum states, using environments and materials in their lowest to highest conducting phase, in simple or engineered assembly, interacting with and delivering photo-electronic, electro-magnetic, electromechanical, electro-thermal, and bio-electronic signals. EDS now has about 11,000 members and chapters worldwide, sponsors many technical periodicals, provides support for technical meetings and has its own business office. The activities of the Society are governed by a Constitution and Bylaws and administered by a Board of Governors (BoG) and an Administrative Forum (Forum). The Society sponsors and reports on education, research, development and manufacturing aspects and is involved in science, theory, engineering, experimentation, simulation, modelling, design, fabrication, interconnection, reliability of such devices and their applications.
About IEEE Photonics Society – forms the hub of a vibrant technical community of more than 100,000 professionals globally dedicated to transforming breakthroughs in photonics and quantum physics into the devices, systems and products to revolutionize our daily lives. From ubiquitous and inexpensive global communications via fiber optics, to lasers for medical and other applications, to flat-screen displays, to photovoltaic devices for solar energy, to LEDs for energy-efficient illumination, there are myriad examples of the society’s impact on the world around us. You can look at the contributions of this society for the global community and industry with its impact to novel technologies.
