 TEMS Technical Program Committee

Activities and Accomplishments

  • Mandate: 
    • to expanding our academic research community by recruiting new academic leaders and paper reviewers which are a large part for TEMS’ conferences.
    • Appoint Program Chairs and Publications Chairs for TEMS’ conferences
  • Leverage IEEE TEM team. We have access to 40 department and guest editors whom can act as program chairs 
  • Leverage TEM reviewers. We have more than 1000 of them

Activities Required Assistance

  • We need a solid publications chair who can manage EDAS. That is our weakness right now. 
  • Plan is to keep working with Rabiz and Ed while identifying a few others we can grow. 
  • Plan to work with other conferences (eg. AI4G, SSIM, ISEI, ICTE, ICMSE ..etc) to attract capable candidates for publications chair.
