Hi everyone!

I would like to thank you for finding time to visit my web page and for your interest in IEEE. I hope that this web page will give you the opportunity to learn more about me, my volunteer work and contribution to IEEE and my vision for the future. I warmly invite you to an open dialogue on any issue that concerns you. I am convinced that through your valued contribution and constructive conversation we can make IEEE a better organization!

My goal is for this web page to be a LIVING page, enhanced by your feedback, thoughts and ideas. A meeting point for productive communication and collaboration within the IEEE community – to stimulate creativity and innovation in all areas of engineering, in the academic and societal context and to empower our diverse community of scientists, academics and industrialists from different cultures, religions and parts of the world, to explore new areas of unique contributions to science and society, for the benefit of mankind.

Please browse through the website to learn more about Costas Stasopoulos vision for engineering and IEEE. I will be accessible and eager to listen to your concerns. Please let me hear from you on the issues that are important to you.

Vision for Engineering

Science and Technology has leaped to permeate every aspect of our everyday life. The new global landscape with its increasingly knowledge-based, knowledge-thirsty societies, together with the rapidly changing technological, economic and political environment presents new challenges for the Engineering world: It calls for knowledge produced in academia not to be left on the shelf but to be quickly disseminated and transformed into products and applications to improve and enhance the quality of human life.

Traditionally engineering has been a field with narrow and mostly technical focus. The new global landscape with the accelerated rate of innovation and increasingly complex technology calls for engineering to adopt to an interdisciplinary environment, spanning across many academic disciplines including non-technical ones (i.e. economic, social).

In order to facilitate such advancements and world prosperity society needs leaders who are capable of integrating the technical with the non-technical, whether in academia, business or the non- profit sectors.

Woah! I'm really loving the templatetheme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that perfect balance between usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog! edefcbdedbeddcdd

Hi, Just feel IEEE is weaker in UK compared with IET. How do you plan to improve the IEEE influence in the UK to beat IET? But like your statement, I will give my vote to you.

Dear Chunmei,
It is very natural for IET to be stronger in its home country, but over the last years IEEE is getting stronger and stronger in UK. The key point is to provide solid services to your members. If you can serve your members and give value to their membership then you will win. The key question here is how do you provide good value for money to your members? This is the big question and we should start working on it.
Thanks for your vote,
Costas

Dear Dr. B. Fergani,

Let me first thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn something new. I had to look up Maghebian in the dictionary that it mainly refers to Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and sometimes Libya and Mauritania. In Tunisia we have already a very active Section with many chapters. In Morocco we also have an active Section and in Algiers we have a very active Subsection and right now they are moving towards the creation of a Section. The interest in IEEE in the recent years has risen in North Africa by a significant amount.

IEEE is a pioneer in new technologies like Life sciences, Smart Grid, Cloud computing, Transportation Electrification and many others technologies (http://www.ieee.org/about/technologies/index.html) and has set up a special committee working exclusively with these issues, the IEEE Future Directions Committee. All IEEE members have access to these technologies and the latest information through the web. If you prefer face to face meetings IEEE has an extensive list of distinguished lecturers from around the globe that can be contacted directly and arrange a lecture or a seminary in your country (http://www.ieee.org/about/volunteers/tab/distinguished_lecturer_program.html ). In Tunisia we recently had a big conference last April, (Melecon 2012 http://www.melecon2012.org/ ) where there was an extensive scientific exchange and stimulation. If Algeria becomes the newest Region 8 Section, a meeting will be arranged there in order to promote IEEE and meet with local members and stimulate cooperation and scientific exchange.

Finally I would like to tell you that I am open to ideas that you might have concerning the above issues and I urge you to share them with us. We need new ideas and hard working people to make them reality.

Thanks,
Costas Stasopoulos
