The Internet of Things (IoT) is already in the process of being integrated into every aspect of our lives, both personally and professionally.  While the definition of an IoT device, wireless sensor network (WSN), or network edge user equipment may be up for debate, there is little disagreement that we can expect many billions if not a trillion or more networked things operating in our world in the next few years.  Most of these devices have very low power requirements and therefore present an excellent opportunity to be powered by ambient energy sources via energy harvesting (EH) modalities.  We have the ability to capture scavenged energy from every form of energy physics affords us, whether it be to source the complete power needs of the device or supplement battery life.


This webinar will provide a brief introduction to EH technologies and key design issues/challenges (inc. some related to packaging), discuss some of the latest advancements in EH devices and design innovations, then close with some example solutions in energy storage and real-world applications.  The three distinguished speakers are well-respected, experienced contributors to their respective areas of focus within the EH ecosystem and will provide a unique overview that covers a wide breadth of topics and experience within this domain.

Our Industry has reinvented itself through multiple disruptive changes in technologies, products and markets. With migration of logic, memory and applications to the Cloud, AI at the Edge, the  Internet of Things (IoT) to internet of everything (IOE), smart devices every where, and autonomous automotive, the pace of innovation is increasing to meet these challenges.


The Heterogeneous Integration Technology Roadmap (HIR), is sponsored by the IEEE EPS Society, the Electron Devices Society (EDS), Photonics Society together with SEMI and ASME EPPD.  It will address the future directions of heterogeneous integration technologies serving system integration for future markets and products, so very crucial to our societies’ fields of interest and to our industries and academic and research communities.

Election Principles                                                                                                                                                                                         

The EPS Board of Governors (BoG) includes 18 Members-at-Large, elected by the full voting membership of the Society. The three-year terms of the Members-at-Large are staggered, so that six Members-at-Large to the Board of Governors are elected annually.

Members-at-Large are elected to achieve totals proportionate to the geographic distribution of EPS members. Any IEEE Region/grouping of Regions determined to have at least 10% of total EPS members will have the proportional number of Member-at-Large positions designated to it for representation on the BoG.  The slate of candidates for each year’s election will be constructed to ensure that the resulting total of newly elected Members-at-Large plus continuing Members-at-Large has the proper proportion of representatives from each Region/grouping of Regions.

Each Region/grouping of Regions will have a separate slate of candidates from that Region.  Voting members will elect members-at-large from within their Region only (that is, members in Region 8 vote for Members-at-Large from Region 8, members in Region 10 vote for Members-at-Large from Region 10; etc.).


Candidates for Member-at-Large must:                  

     - be a current member of both IEEE and EPS

    - be willing to attend two annual Board meetings

     - be willing to participate actively in areas of their interest (publications, conferences, membership development, chapter development, etc).
