In memoriam It is with great sadness that ICES reports the death of Dr. Eleanor Reed Adair on 20 April 2013. Ellie was one of the founders and greatest contributors to ICES and to the whole field of bioelectromagnetics. Expressions of condolence and personal memories of your time with Ellie may be sent to her daughter, Maggie Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org or Margaret Adair Quinn, 335 Litchfield Turnpike, Bethany CT 06524.
IEEE announced no-cost public access to select IEEE C95 standards for exposure to electromagnetic fields. The IEEE announcement quotes ICES member Ron Petersen, IEEE Life Fellow and Past Chairman of ICES, “The IEEE C95 standards are science-based and represent decades of work conducted in an open, consensus-based process by the largest and most diverse community of international experts involved in electromagnetic safety standardization.” ICES member B. Jon Klauenberg is also quoted. The no-cost public access is supported by the U.S. Department of Defense. Read the IEEE announcement in their press release. The IEEE C95 standards are available through the IEEE GET PROGRAM at standards.ieee.org/about/get/index.html, also available in our Links.
Jon Klauenberg receives Award
Dr. B. Jon Klauenberg of the US Air Force received IEEE Standards Board (SA) International Award for his contributions in promoting the NATO and IEEE collaboration. During the ICES TC95 meeting, on behalf of the IEEE SA, Dr. Ralf Bodemann, Chairman of ICES, presented the Award trophy and certificate to Jon. Congratulations. IEEE SA has issued this International Award for the last 10 years. Among the 39 IEEE societies, the fact that three ICES TC95 members have received this award speaks highly of the international contributions and recognition of ICES from the IEEE SA. The last two awardees are Ron Petersen and Michael R. Murphy.
ICES congratulates SC2 Chairman Richard Anthony Tell as one of the 2012 Newly Elevated IEEE Fellows for contributions to assessment and safety standards for human exposure to radio frequency energy.
Congratulations Marvin Ziskin
Dr. Marvin Ziskin, Co-Chair of SC4 (Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure,3 kHz-300 GHz) was honored with the 13th d'Arsonval Award for outstanding achievement in the field of bioelectromagnetics from the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS). His invited lecture at the June meeting in Halifax was entitled "Millimeter Waves: Acoustic and Bioelectric". Dr. Ziskin has been an active and valued member of ICES TC95 for many years.
