The last AdCom meeting was held in conjunction with IECON 2013 in Viena, Austria.
The next meetings are scheduled for:
- Officers' Meeting 2014: Feb. 13-15, in conjunction with IEEE TAB meetings in Los Angeles, USA
- AdCom1 2014: June 6, in conjunction with ISIE 2014, Istanbul, Turkey
- AdCom2 2014: Date TBD, in conjunction with IECON 2014, Dallas, Texas, USA
- AdCom1 2015: Date TBD, in conjunction with ISIE 2015, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- AdCom2 2015: Nov.13-14, in conjunction with IECON 2015, Yokohama, Japan
Significant changes to the IES constitution and our Bylaws are required by IEEE. Please watch carefully for changes to be posted on the Web site. Synopsis: quorum redefined, only two meetings per year, too many voting people miss meetings and that may get us into trouble with the new definition of quorum, harsh immediate consequences of missing two meetings in a row by a voting AdCom member and suspension of voting privileges for absent senior and life AdCom members.
