Three New Distinguished Lecturers for 2003-2004

We have three new Distinguished Lecturers (DLs) for 2003-2004! These gentlemen are profiled below. They have recently begun their two-year terms as the newest Distinguished Lecturers of the IEEE EMC Society. They join Keith Hardin of Lexmark and Cheung-Wei Lam of Apple Computer whose terms expire on December 31 of this year. We also extend our thanks and appreciation to our three outgoing DLs, Dr. Maria Sabrina Sarto, Dr. Bud Hoeft, and Colin Brench, whose terms expired in December 2002.
Before introducing Bruce, Michel and Chris, I want to acknowledge the contributions of Sabrina, Bud, and Colin over the past two years. During their terms, they volunteered to spend days away from home and family in planes, cars, and shuttle busses in order to give presentations all over the Unites States and Europe. The Distinguished Lecturer Program depends on these bright and learned volunteers who can make an EMC Society Chapter meeting or special event a very fun and educational experience. We received many compliments about their respective presentations from Chapter Chairmen over the past two years. Bravo DLs!
Please join me in thanking our retiring DLs, and welcoming our new expert speakers. Feel free to contact the speakers below directly by phone or e-mail to discuss hosting them at your next chapter meeting, university class, or other special event.

Dr. Bruce Archambeault is a Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM in Research Triangle Park, NC. He received his BSEE degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1977 and his MSEE degree from Northeastern University in 1981. He received his Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire in 1997. His doctoral research was in the area of computational electromagnetics applied to real-world EMC problems.
In 1981 he joined Digital Equipment Corporation and through 1994 he had assignments ranging from EMC/TEMPEST product design and testing to developing computational electromagnetic EMC-related software tools. In 1994 he joined SETH Corporation where he continued to develop computational electromagnetic EMC-related software tools and used them as a consulting engineer in a variety of different industries. In 1997 he joined IBM in Raleigh, NC where he is the lead EMC engineer, responsible for EMC tool development and use on a variety of products. During his career in the US Air Force he was responsible for in-house communications security and TEMPEST/EMC related research and development projects.
He has presented papers, organized "Introduction to EMC Modeling" and "EMC Modeling Applications" workshops, as well as special sessions on EMC Modeling at the annual IEEE EMC symposium for a number of years. He is an active member of the TC-9 subcommittee. He has served as a past Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility. He is the author of the book "PCB Design for Real-World EMI Control" and the lead author of the book titled "EMI/EMC Computational Modeling Handbook."
The topics he can present include "Introduction to EMC Modeling and Simulation," "Eliminating the Myths for Proper PCB Power/Ground Plane Decoupling," and "Design Strategies for Real-World EMC Design of PCBs."

Michel Ianoz (Senior Member IEEE 85, Fellow IEEE 96, Dr. Hon. Causa 99) was born in 1936. He received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering in 1958 from the Politechnical Institute Bucharest Rumania and the Ph.D. degree in 1968 from the Moscow University. He worked on magnetic field calculations for particle accelerators and focusing devices in different Nuclear Research Centers among which the Unified Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna (USSR) and the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. Since 1975 he joined the Power Network Laboratory of the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne (Switzerland) where he has been teaching EMC as a Professor of the Electrical Department. His teaching activity has been dedicated first on High Voltage Engineering in Lausanne and at the Interafrican Engineering University in Abidjan (Ivory Coast). In 1985 he introduced for the first time in Switzerland a course on EMC which is now required for all the students of the Electrical Department of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne. His research activity on EMC began in 1978. His interests are dedicated to the calculation of electromagnetic fields, modelling of field-to-transmission line coupling, transient phenomena, lightning and EMP effects on power and telecommunication networks. His research on EMP has been performed since 1978 and on lightning electromagnetic effects since 1987. He is co-author of the books "High Voltage Engineering" and "EMC Analysis Methods and Computational Models." He is also the author or co-author of about 140 scientific papers, some 60 of which appeared in internationally reviewed journals and conferences. Professor Ianoz is Chairman of the Subcommittee 77B (HF phenomena) of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), member of the WG36.04 of CIGRE and President of the Swiss Committee of the URSI. He has been representing Switzerland in the European Program SCIENCE from 1992 to 1995 and COST 243 and COST 261 from 1993 to 2002. He has served many years as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on EMC. He is an EMP Fellow since 1994 and an IEEE Fellow since 1996. His presentation topics include: "Field-to-Transmission Line and Shielded Cable Coupling. Modeling and Validation," "Lightning Electromagnetic Effects," "EMC Problems Related to Power Line Communication (PLC)" and "Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields."
