Call for Nominations for VTS Distinguished Lecturers
The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society launched the Distinguished Lecturer (DL) program in July 2011. The program has been very successful in providing VTS chapters throughout the world with presentations by leading experts on topics of interest and importance to the Vehicular Technology membership community.
We are accepting DL nominations for the 2017 class. The
appointment of a DL is a two-year term, and can be renewed by one more
term at most. We are particularly interested in the technical areas of
autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles, land transportation, vehicle
power and propulsion, and vehicular electronics. An appointed
Distinguished Lecturer is expected to:
- Deliver at least one lecture in the technical areas to a VTS chapter and record at least one “voice over PowerPoint” lecture for posting on the VTS DL website and for distributing to VTS members, in the two-year period of the term
- Reach out to local VT chapters to arrange for delivering Distinguished Lectures when traveling to an area with a VT Chapter
- Provide a traveling schedule/plan semi-annually or annually to the VTS regional coordinator to facilitate a Distinguished Lecture Tour
- Provide an update on the potential Distinguished Lecture titles annually in June for the DL webpage; and
- Be a member of VTS
Please send your nomination along with a current
curriculum vitae of the nominee, by 31 March 2017, to the DL Selection
Committee Chair Weihua Zhuang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
