Perhaps a more accurate title would be "Wither INTERCON" The boom year of the sixties left IEEE ill-prepared of cope with the harsher economics and changing attitudes of the seventies. this fact is manifest in the plan for INTERCON'74 and in the repo

The cellular bands are nearly filled, new spectrum is hard to come by, and modulation techniques already use existing spectrum about as efficiently as possible. What's left to do? A recent report of the U.S. President's Council of Advisors on Science

What are the functions and future of the engineering institution in Britain? In this article the author makes proposals for the future rather than criticising what has already been done, with an aim to stimulating discussion on the topic.

Due to their enormous popularity, social network platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are constantly viewed as stand-ins for public spaces. Although they have their own rules, there are ethical aspects that demand governance to guarantee

In a typical undergraduate course in EM field theory, electrostatics is inevitably followed by magnetostatics. Now in a rare instance of real life imitating the textbook, we have MAGNETOGRAPHY, a natural successor to the ubiquitous 'Xerox" machine! T

Reports research and development in the area of magnetic skyrmions.

The first Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) was held in Boston on July 25 and 26, 1989. It was followed by an NSF-sponsored workshop on Future Directions in Electromagnetics Research. The worksho! included six panels, spanning t

Summary form only given. Social media has revolutionized how humans create and curate knowledge artifacts [1]. It has increased individual engagement, broadened community participation and led to the formation of new social networks. This paradigm sh

Aspects of current models for HF atmospheric radio noise from thunderstorms and for interference are discussed briefly, limitations are mentioned and suggestions made for further studies to seek to eliminate these.

The essential aim of the conference on the use of the young professional engineer, held in London on the 9th October 1970 and organised by the Council of Engineering Institutions London Graduates & Students Joint Committee, was for 'young engineers'

Standardization efforts within ATE software have been aimed pri marily at the languages used to prepare test programs. In the future the diversity of computer con figurations available to ATE will increase tremendously. To take full advantage of this

Many undergraduate EM textbooks explain the operating principle of an electrostatic precipitator, which is a commercial device used to reduce pollution by removing objectionable particles from a gas. How about "electropollution"? Is it the consequenc

This paper discusses the mode of operation of certain partial height ferrite, Y-junction circulators. It is proposed that such devices operate in a turnstile fashion with modes propagating axially along the ferrite rod. A simple experiment on a 4-GHz

The paper commences with a broad examination of the likely role of nuclear power in relation to other sources of primary energy for electricity generation in the UK, and then briefly reviews the historical reasons for the choice of different types of

Is the current approach to enterprise architecture dogmatic and over-ambitious? Peter Kemp and Dr John McManus MBCS give their view.

As many AP-S inventors can readily testify, the transition from a laboratory prototype to a commercially viable product can be an agonizingly slow process. Leonard Taylor (University of Maryland) patented the microwave scalpel in 1979. The device int
