The EMC Society has three out-going Distinguished
Lecturers (DLs), and three new Distinguished Lecturers. Prof.
Dr.-Ing Heyno Garbe of the University of Hannover, Dr. Chris Holloway
of NIST, and Dr. David Pommerenke of the UMR EMC Laboratory have
completed their two year terms as EMC-S DLs, and the Society extends
them our thanks and gratitude.
The three incoming Distinguished Lecturers are Dr. Erping Li of
the Singapore National Research Institute, Dr. Jun Fan of NCR
Teradata, and Dr. Franz Schlagenhaufer of the Western Australian
Telecommunications Research Institute. The EMC-S is pleased to
welcome them as DLs, and look forward to their lectures and contributions
to the Society. Brief biographical sketches, and their intended
DL lecture topics, are provided below.
Erping Li received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering
from Sheffield Hallam University, UK, in 1992. From 1989-1990,
he worked as a Research Associate and from 1991-1992 as a Lecturer
with the School of Electronic and Information Technology at Sheffield
Hallam University, UK. From 1993 to 1999, he was a Senior Research
Fellow, Principal Research Engineer and Technical Director with
the Singapore Research Institute and Industry. Since 2000, he
has been with the Singapore National Research Institute A-STAR
Institute of High Performance Computing, where he is currently
a Senior Scientist and a Senior R&D Manager of the Electronic
System and Electromagnetics group. Dr. Li has authored and co-authored
over 120 papers for refereed international journals and conferences
and five book chapters. He holds one US patent and one Singapore
Patent and has filed for three US patents. His research interests
include fast and efficient computational electromagnetics, EMC/EMI,
electromagnetics for high-speed electronic packaging/nanoelectronics
and RFIC, and electromagnetics for biomedical applications. Dr.
Li is the recipient of the 2006 IEEE EMC Technical Achievement
Award and the IEEE Certificate of Appreciation for his outstanding
contribution as President of the 2006 EMC-Zurich in Singapore
symposium. Since January 2006, he has served as the Associate
Editor for IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, and
was Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on EMC November 2006
Special Issue. He served as the Symposium President for the 17th
International Zurich Symposium on EMC held in March 2006 in Singapore.
He is presently the Chairman of the IEEE EMC Singapore Chapter.
He has been invited to give numerous speeches to academic institutions
and at international conferences.
Dr. Li will be lecturing on power integrity and signal integrity
modeling for package integration, fast and efficient computational
electromagnetic techniques for complex EMC/EMI problems, and reverberation
chamber design and EMC testing.
Jun Fan received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering
from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1994 and 1997, respectively.
He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the
University of Missouri-Rolla in 2000. He is currently with NCR
Corporation, San Diego, California, where he works as a Consultant
Engineer. His research interests include signal integrity and
EMI designs in high-speed digital systems, dc power-bus modeling,
PCB noise reduction, differential signaling, and cable/connector
designs. He has authored or co-authored over 50 refereed journal
papers and conference papers, including three practical papers
in the IEEE EMC Society Newsletter, and has presented work at
numerous conferences and meetings. He holds four U.S. patents
with another seven pending. Dr. Fan received the Conference Best
Paper Award from the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society
in 2000. He currently serves as Chair of the TC-9 Computational
Electromagnetics Committee of the IEEE EMC Society. Dr. Fan will
be lecturing on high-speed interconnect and link path design,
power distribution network design for high-speed digital designs,
and computational EMI modeling.
Franz Schlagenhaufer received his diploma degree in electrical
engineering from the Technical University of Munich, and Doctorate
in Engineering from the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg in
Germany, in 1988 and 1992, respectively. From 1992 to 1995, he
was the manager of the EMC Laboratory at MAZ Hamburg, GmbH in
Germany where he established and ran the laboratory, as well as
leading it through the accreditation process. From 1996 to 1999,
he was a technical manager with EMCSI Pty Ltd in Melbourne, Australia.
Since 2000, he has been with the Western Australian Centre for
EMC Technology in Perth, Australia, where he is a Senior Research
Fellow involved in the supervision of undergraduate and post-graduate
students, and lecturing in EM theory and EMC. His research activities
focus on numerical field computation using MoM and transmission
line theory with applications to coupling to shielding enclosures,
and large systems. He is also working on developing emission measurement
procedures for very large equipment and machinery. He has published
over 40 refereed journal and conference papers, and made presentations
at many conferences and contributed to several EMC workshops.
Dr. Schlagenhaufer will present lectures on EMC fundamentals,
EMC design at the equipment and system level, and EMC/EMI modeling
at the system level.
Please join me in welcoming our new EMC-S Distinguished Lecturers
and engage them in presenting to your chapters.
|The EMC Society’s Distinguished Lecturer
Program provides speakers for Society chapter meetings and
similar functions. Each Distinguished Lecturer (DL) can offer
one of several pre-prepared presentations on various EMC topics.
DLs are appointed by the EMC Society Board of Directors for
a two-year term. Currently the Society has five Lecturers
serving on alternating terms.
Distinguished Lecturers may give up to six talks per year
under the Program, which reimburses the DL for their approved
traveling expenses up to a recommended limit of $750 per US
engagement, or $1000 for international engagements. To provide
as many opportunities to as many members as possible, the
Society encourages hosting chapters whenever possible to absorb
some part of the speaker’s costs, such as by providing
or paying for local transportation, meals, and lodging.
