Update January 2021: IEEE Finance Committee Memo to IEEE Volunteers on Travel

Dear Fellow IEEE Volunteers,

Due to the travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the IEEE travel policy remains unchanged from 2020 and is restricted to mission critical travel only.  This policy was last communicated/updated by Joe Lillie, 2020 IEEE Treasurer on 26 October 2020.  The intent of this process is to promote safe travel for IEEE Volunteers; therefore, this applies to ALL IEEE VOLUNTEER TRAVEL, including conferences.

As a reminder, the current IEEE travel guidance includes the following:

1. All IEEE Volunteer travel and associated meetings must adhere to all appropriate guidance from cognizant local public health authorities.

2. Given continuing global pandemic risk, only mission critical travel should be conducted at this time.

3.  All requests for reimbursable mission critical IEEE volunteer travel must be pre-approved at the IEEE Volunteer OU President/Vice-President level (TAB Vice President, MGA Vice President, PSPB Vice President, EAB Vice President. Awards Board Chair, Standards Board President and the IEEE-USA President).

OU Presidents/Vice-Presidents may delegate this authority to another volunteer, but should ensure that travel is reviewed to ensure that it is critical, necessary, effective and that other alternatives have been considered.

4. Volunteers engaged in mission critical IEEE travel at this time voluntarily elect to participate in the activity with knowledge of the dangers involved, and are agreeing to accept and assume any and all risks of property damage, personal injury, or death associated with IEEE related travel. Volunteers should understand that IEEE will not indemnify them for any health risk or economic or other loss resulting from exposure to COVID-19 during travel.

5. IEEE will not reimburse costs associated with mandatory or self-quarantine or isolation associated with IEEE volunteer travel. If there is a risk of quarantine on entering or departing an area, IEEE volunteers should instead plan to participate virtually using IEEE video and teleconferencing tools.  

6. IEEE continues to provide video-conferencing, tele-conferencing and online meeting facilities to provide alternatives to high-risk travel.

7. Domestic and International rules remain fluid and subject to change. Until further notice, volunteers should take steps to ensure that travel arrangements are flexible and subject to change, credit or refund if plans are disrupted, in accordance with previously issued IEEE guidance.

8. IEEE recommends that If you have any questions, please contact your OU staff business solutions manager or OU volunteer leadership. Further communication will be sent when normal travel plans can be resumed.

Please stay safe and thank you for your assistance and understanding in these difficult times.

Best Wishes,

Mary Ellen Randall

IEEE Ukraine Section Conference Update / COVID-19

Dear IEEE Ukraine Section Members,

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization  declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers imposed quarantine in Ukraine until April 3, 2020.
The health and safety of the IEEE Community in Ukraine is of paramount importance to the IEEE Ukraine Section, therefore we are carefully considering our plans going forward. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, increasing health concerns and the well-being of the conference attendees, you should be aware of the risks of proceeding with the IEEE conferences in Ukraine.

Organizing Committees of IEEE Conferences together with the IEEE Ukraine Section and its Subunits are carefully considering plans going forward, at the moment there are several options:
a) Move to Virtual Conference
Conference registrants can view slides over a certain period (e.g same as the conference period) and interact with questions or/and can participate in online WebEx meeting. The Conference proceedings will still be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
b) Postpone the Conference
If Conference OrgCom have enough time to find an alternative date and location, this can be an option. However, it is difficult to predict when the situation will improve. Publication of Conference proceedings will be delayed. It is also important to avoid dates/venues conflicts with similar Conferences.
c) Cancellation of the Conference
This is the last resort option that we all will try to avoid. Conference Proceedings will not be published and this will negatively impacts authors. 

Conferences and IEEE Organizers will inform authors of their decision with details as early as possible.

We hope things will settle soon and everyone can enjoy our valuable IEEE conferences.

Best regards,
IEEE Ukraine Section OpCom

Obituary of Prof. Yakov Shifrin

It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing away of Prof. Yakov Shifrin, IEEE Life Fellow, IEEE Ukraine Section member and one of the initiators of IEEE activity in antenna theory and technique area in Ukraine.
Please join us in conveying our condolences to his family and his Section.

YAKOV SOLOMONOVICH SHIFRIN
IEEE Life Fellow
IEEE UKRAINE SECTION
(April, 1920 – August, 2019)

IEEE Ukraine Section has lost a rare gem: Yakov Shifrin, IEEE Life Fellow, who was an outstanding scientist and one of the initiators of IEEE activity in the field of antenna theory and technique in Ukraine. Yakov Shifrin was a founder of the IEEE Ukraine Section (Kharkiv) SP/AP/C/EMC/COM Joint Chapter.
Yakov Shifrin was born on April 23, 1920, in the city of Mstislavl, Belarus. He died on August 6, 2019, in Kharkiv, Ukraine.
Yakov Shifrin graduated in June 1941 from the Physical faculty of the Leningrad State University. At the beginning of the Second World War actions on the territory of the USSR, he was enrolled in the people’s volunteer corps, at the end of August 1941 he was seconded to study to the Military Red Banner Academy of Communications (MRAC) named after S. M. Budyonny. In the summer and autumn of 1943, he took part in the battles for the liberation of Ukraine on the Third Ukrainian Front. After graduation with honours from the MRAC Radio Faculty and short courses in radar in 1944, he was appointed the commander of one of the new gun guidance station batteries (GGS), which took part in hostilities until the end of the war.
Between 1946 and 1948 he was the first teacher in radar with the Sevastopol Anti-aircraft artillery college, Zhytomyr, Ukraine
Since 1948 Yakov Shifrin lived and worked in Kharkiv, Ukraine.
First, 1948-1980, his service and life were connected with the L.A.Govorov Military Radio Engineering Academy, where he studied as a military post-graduate student and then worked as a teacher, professor and, during 25 years, head of the chair. Since September 1980 to March 2019 he worked with the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, as a professor, head of Chair of Technical Electromagnetics and Antennas, and chief researcher.
Yakov Shifrin’s contribution to science is in a number of areas of modern radio electronics and radio physics. He was a founder of a new scientific field, called the statistical theory of antennas (STA) being the theory of antennas with random sources. His monograph, “Issues in the Statistical Theory of Antennas” (Soviet Radio, 1970), was published in the United States in English (translated by P. Beckmann) as “Statistical Antenna Theory” (Golem Press, 1971). Areas of scientific research of Yakov Shifrin covered also long-distance tropospheric propagation of radio waves, the theory of antennas with nonlinear elements, diagnostics of phased array antennas and many others. He was an author and co-author of over 300 scientific publications, including 16 monographs. About 20 doctors (full doctor degree) and over 50 candidates (Ph.D. degree) of science were prepared under his leadership.
In 1993, he organized the National Antenna Association of Ukraine and initiated the first in Ukraine international antenna conferences called as International Conferences on Antenna Theory and Technique (ICATT). In 2002, Yakov Shifrin and Carl E. Baum (University of New Mexico, USA) initiated one else conference in cutting edge science problems of radio physics, “International Conference on Ultrawideband and Ultrashort Impulse Signals” (UWBUSIS). Karazin Kharkiv National University.
In 1983, Presidium of Academy of Science USSR awarded him by the triennial A.S.Popov Prize with the citation: “For works in the field of Statistical Antenna Theory that fundamentally contributed to the antenna theory and techniques”.
Prof. Shifrin became the first scientist in Ukraine elected to the grade of IEEE Fellow for fundamental contributions to antenna theory and technology in 1998.
In 2014, he was awarded by the EuMA Outstanding Career Award. In 2015, he was selected to receive the prestigious IEEE AESS Pioneer Award for pioneering contributions and accomplishments that have stood the test of time: “For founding contributions to modern radio physics and Statistical Antenna Theory (SAT)”.
He was honored by State Awards including 5 orders and 20 medals.
Yakov Shifrin was an Honorary citizen of the city of Kharkiv (Ukraine).
Prof. Shifrin was a charming man of impeccable decency and honesty. He is survived by his second wife, two daughters, four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren. He is truly beloved by his family, disciples, colleagues, and numerous friends.
We will forever remember Yakov Shifrin as an outstanding scientist, brilliant speaker, and very kind, generous and sociable person. He will be sorely missed.

2018 IEEE AP-S Eugene F. Knott Memorial Pre-Doctoral Research Grant for Dariia Yevtushenko

Dariia Yevtushenko

School: Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, Ukraine

Advisor: Prof. Alexander I. Nosich

Project Topic: Diffraction radiation of electron beams from optical nanoresonators: antenna effects and beam diagnostics.

Dariia Yevtushenko will receive her M.Sc. degree in Photonics and Optoinformatics from the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics in February 2019. Additionally, she is an undergraduate research assistant at the Laboratory of Micro and Nano Optics under the supervision of Prof. Alexander I. Nosich. Her research interests include Computational Electromagnetics, Plasmonics, Photonics and Diffraction Radiation.

Project Description:

We plan to study the diffraction radiation that accompanies the motion of a modulated sheet of electrons near dielectric and noble-metal nanowire scatterers, in the optical wavelength range. If one can neglect the action of the field on the particles, then the electromagnetic field of such a two-dimensional beam takes form of surface wave propagating along the beam trajectory. This wave induces the polarization and surface currents on the local obstacles and hence a radiation occurs even if the beam does not touch the obstacle. In fact, the scatterer plays role of optical or microwave antenna, which makes the beam of particles visible. In particular, a metal nanowire behaves as an open resonator, thanks to which the diffraction radiation is enhanced near the localized surface plasmon resonance wavelength. Measuring the spatial pattern of the diffraction radiation and its intensity, one can judge about the energy and trajectory of the electrons. This study can be useful in the design of novel sensors of beam position and velocity. It is expected to lead to several conference papers and has potential to be published as a journal paper.

[Report] 2017 IEEE International Young Scientists Forum on Applied Physics and Engineering (YSF-2017)

The 2017 IEEE International Young Scientists Forum on Applied Physics and Engineering (YSF-2017) is one of “the club of six” IEEE IAS co-sponsored student led technical conferences for 2017. The Forum was successfully held on October 17-20, 2017 in one of the most beautiful cities of Ukraine, in magnificent Lviv with its historic part recognized as a World Heritage by UNESCO. The event was hosted by the Scientific Library of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.

The event was co-organized by the O.Ya. Usikov Institute for Radiophysics and Electronics NAS of Ukraine and its Young Scientists Council; Ivan Franko National University of Lviv; Karpenko Physico-Mechanical Institute NASU, and IEEE IRE NASU AP-S, ED-S, MTT-S, IA-S, SSC-S Student Branch Chapters. The YSF-2017 gained a lot of support from sponsors: IEEE Industry Applications Society, IEEE Ukraine Section (West) Joint Chapter and IEEE Ukraine Section Young Professionals Affinity Group became the technical co-sponsors of the event, while IEEE Ukraine Section (East) Joint Chapter, IEEE Ukraine Section Women in Engineering Affinity Group, EPS, Kharkiv EPS Young Minds Section, and EuMA provided Forum with the financial support. IEEE Units legally represented by Public Union “IEEE Ukraine Section”.

The YSF-2017 gathered together over 150 young scientists, engineers, and invited speakers (including more than 40 IEEE members) from all over the world: the geography of participants included 29 cities of 10 countries including USA, UK, Spain, Poland, Estonia, Turkey, Italy, Hungary, Egypt, and Ukraine. The technical program included presentations on a broad range of topics including Biological and Medical Physics; Optics and Photonics; Computational and Experimental Electromagnetics; Microwave and Teraherts Electronics; Nano- and Metamaterials; Information Systems and Nondestructive Testing; Power Electronics and Industry Applications; Solid State Physics; Nuclear and Plasma Physics; Multiwavelength Astronomy; Geoscience and Remote Sensing.

The list of invited speakers of the Forum included two IEEE distinguished lecturers of GRS and NPS societies: Dr. Valery Zavorotny (NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory, Boulder, Colorado, USA) and Dr. Patric Muggli (Max Planck Institute for Physics, Munich, Germany), respectively; IEEE Industry Applications Society president – Dr. Tomy Sebastian (Michigan, USA); OSA chief scientist – Prof. Gregory Quarles (Washington D.C., USA); Dr. Leonid Ponomarenko (Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK); Dr. Carlos Roncero-Clemente (University of Extremadura, Badajoz, Spain); DSci. Valeriya Trusova (V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Kharkiv, Ukraine).

The unique feature of the event, which traditionally gains interest among the participants, is a successful combination of a scientific program with various soft skill trainings. This year Forum offered workshops on scientific writing in English, improving skills of public speaking, grant proposal writing as well as insights into the grant programs of the European Union, NATO, DAAD and other organizations.
On the October 21, 2017 the YSF-2017 satellite event, the CS-oriented workshop “Microscope, Money, and Two Useful Nails”, was organized at the Ukrainian Catholic University. It was aimed at collaboration between young scientists and Ukrainian IT companies.

Last, but not least, the YSF has always been not just a scientific platform for the career development of young scientists, but also a place for effective communication. The fascinating social program of this year’s Forum prepared by the organizers was an integral part of the event. The welcome reception of the Forum, aimed at enhancing the participants’ networking, was organized by the IEEE Ukraine Section Women in Engineering Affinity Group at the Robert Doms Beer House. Social program also included library excursion, city tour and the farewell party.

As YSF-2017 is an IEEE conference, there was IEEE booth working each day of the Forum which contributed greatly to the promotion of IEEE itself and its units involved in the organization of the event.

IEEE Ukraine Section Executive Committee Meeting

Date: August 27, 2016, 9:00-17:00
Location: hall “Borysfen”, Hotel “Dnipro”, Kyiv, Ukraine

The IEEE Ukraine Section organized and held a Section Executive Committee Meeting in Kyiv, a beautiful historical city and the capital of Ukraine, on August 27, 2016.
The Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary of IEEE Ukraine Section and 13 IEEE volunteers from Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, Vinnitsya and Ternopil represented both the Section Operation Committee and the IEEE Ukraine Section chapters and affinity groups. The main goals of this very friendly meeting were: 1) establishing the Public Union “IEEE Ukraine Section”; and 2) pushing the process of organizing the 2017 First IEEE Ukraine Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (UKRCON).

First anniversary of IEEE Ukraine Section Women in Engineering Affinity Group

Well, as they say, better late than never. Two months ago IEEE Ukraine Section Women in Engineering Affinity Group celebrated its first anniversary. The meeting agenda included introduction of IEEE Women in Engineering community, self-introduction of the members and discussion in the format of round-table talk.This was the first time when we gathered all together in one place, got to meet each other, discuss the practical challenges that we encounter and ways to overcome them, and plan our activities aimed at promoting WIE and IEEE at the institutes that we work at for the next year of the group’s existence. The most important issue that speaks for itself is that while we planned for this meeting to be up to 3 hours long, we have stayed there for almost 8 hours, talking, ‘falling into friendship’ and laughing! After several hours of an ‘official’ part, we have also played some board games, ate birthday cake and had a photo session. Thank you for the wonderful day, ladies, and for being who you are – girls-scientists that so do rock!

[Obituary] Yevgeny Mitrofanovich Kuleshov

KuleshovYevgeny Mitrofanovich Kuleshov, IEEE Microwave Pioneer and one of the founding fathers of the Ukrainian and USSR quasi-optics of short-millimeter and sub-millimeter waves, died on the 9-th February 2016 in Kharkiv, Ukraine.

Born on February 21, 1922 in Voronezh, Russia, he graduated, in 1946, from the radio-engineering faculty of the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI, now National Technical University of Ukraine “KPI”). In 1949-1955, Yevgeny M. Kuleshov worked in the Ukrainian Institute of Physics and Technology (UIPT) in Kharkiv, where he became head of laboratory in 1953. When that laboratory branched off UIPT in 1955, he became head of receiving and measurement (later quasi-optics) department at new Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (IRE NASU) until 1988. At the early stage, he designed and developed various general-purpose devices and circuits of the millimeter-wave range (wavelength from 1 to 10 mm) on the basis of standard rectangular waveguide. This became his contribution to the complex work of IRE NASU scientists awarded in 1960 with the Lenin Prize, the highest technical prize in the USSR. In fact, all early buildings of IRE NASU were built by 1959 thanks to massive research funding of his laboratory.

However the necessity of mastering even shorter, sub-millimeter wavelength range was obviously not compatible with a further use of the hollow-waveguide technology. Therefore in the late 1950s and mid-1960s, the innovative work of Yevgeny M. Kuleshov broke ground on development a wideband quasi-optical components and circuits working in the 0.1 to 2 mm wavelength range. At the early stage, he had only one however extremely wealthy customer. This was the department of hot plasma diagnostics in the Tokamak thermonuclear fusion machines developed at the Institute of Atomic Energy in Moscow. In the heart of all quasi-optical components was innovative idea of the hollow dielectric beam-waveguide (HDB) technology. In 1972, after a long struggle with secrecy-overwhelmed USSR bureaucracy, it was patented by eight Kharkiv inventors including Kuleshov. HDB had the form of a wide (dozen of wavelengths and more) dielectric tube with the air in the inner channel, encased into a metal cover. The inner surface of the HDB dielectric lining had triangular longitudinal ribs having depth smaller than half-wavelength. In comparison to various other waveguides, the cross-sectional dimension of HDB is larger as compared with the wavelength, and the dielectric lining has relatively large loss tangent (typically around 0.1) and sizable thickness. All this results in a specific “self-filtering effect”: the higher-order modes of HDB propagate with significant losses and only the principal HE_11 mode keeps low attenuation.

Yevgeny M. Kuleshov held the USSR titles of Honorary Inventor (1978), Honorary Radio Engineer (1980), and was awarded, as team member, with Lenin Prize (1960) and, as team leader, State Prize of Ukraine (1972). Worth noting is that the latter prize was awarded entirely for the development of the pioneering HDB technology. In 1988, Kuleshov retired from the post of department’s head however continued active and fruitful work at IRE NASU, as a senior scientist. At that time his research interests shifted to the application of HDB technology in several promising civilian and defense-oriented areas such as materials testing and radar-cross-section measurements. When Ukraine became independent nation in 1992, the smoke of secrecy around microwave research started getting taken away by fresh winds. The Tokamak studies in Moscow lost their top priority and actually stopped as extremely expensive. Such a change allowed, eventually, Kuleshov’s team to start publishing their results in international technical journals and became internationally visible.

These new circumstances quickly led to remarkable recognition. In 2000, Yevgeny M. Kuleshov was awarded the IEEE Microwave Pioneer Award, with citation “For development of a hollow-ribbed dielectric beamguide technology and quasi-optical measuring techniques of the short-millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength ranges.” One should be reminded that IEEE Microwave Pioneer Award is considered as being much higher that, for instance, the IEEE Fellow grade because every year around ten MTT Society members are elected Fellows however the Microwave Pioneer is either one or none at all. Before Kuleshov’s success, the Pioneer Award was granted to the scientists from the USA and (a few times only) from Japan however not to any European. Therefore Ukrainian microwave community can be proud of that achievement as a token of high recognition of its contribution to the service to humanity.

It is worth noting that Yevgeniy M. Kuleshov continued working as a leading scientist at his department till the very end. In 2013, when his former student and the head of this department died at the age of 65, Kuleshov had the courage and strength to take responsibility of important research project of the FP-7 Program. The project was dealing with HDB technology applied to the testing of Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced-Plastic materials used in the Airbus industry. In 2015, he received the Honorary Mention signed by the President of NASU, for the fruitful work and significant contributions to the radio physics and electronics.

It should be also noted that Yevgeny M. Kuleshov was always a loyal member and supporter of all activities of the IEEE MTT Society in Kharkiv and Ukraine. He joined the Society in 1996 and was elevated to Senior Membership in 1999. In 2001-2002, he served as elected Chairman of the IEEE Ukraine Section (East) Joint Chapter, the largest in Ukraine. This was s crucial time in chapter’s life because of difficult transition to annual elections of its committee by secret ballot, and Kuleshov’s authority, decency, common sense, and also sense of humor helped greatly in this transition. In 2010, he was granted the status of IEEE Life Senior Member, in recognition of many years of both technical work and volunteering.

Y. M. Kuleshov passed away at the age of 94 in a good sense. His last words were “my bolt is shot.” He was survived by his daughter and son, two grandchildren, and two grand-grandchildren. Ukrainian microwave community has lost a remarkable scientist and valued colleague, the founder of quasi-optics department and one of the founding fathers of IRE NASU. Our hearts and prayers go out to him.
