Note on this version: This document was placed here as a draft, which needs to be approved at the next meeting in Phoenix, October 2000. If this statement is still visible here after October 2000, it means the page was not updated. Unless a major change during the approval is made, this page is likely to stay in the draft format. If you see a major error contact Petr Vanysek. Since he is going on sabbatical leave to work with a company and may not be readily accessible, you may want to contact the webmaster of the main page instead.
2. Hesketh read the results of the Sensor Division Award Committee. The
recommendations of the committee was unanimously approved. Hesketh will inform the
Society Awards Committee and once this has been approved inform the recipient.
3. Treasurer's report:
4. Review of Phoenix Meeting:
b. Microfabricated Systems and MEMS V. A proceedings volume is planned.
c. Microsensor Systems for Gas and Vapor Analysis. Stetter gave update speakers have been Invited
d. Solid-State Ionic Devices, Vanysek gave update.
Motion to approve the short course on Microfabrication that will be taught by P.
Hesketh and D. Babic was unanimously approved. Syllabus had already been forwarded
to Johna Leddy for consideration of the Education Committee.
5. Washington Meeting:
a. Corrosion Sensors. Proceedings are planned. Vanysek and others are
b. Bioelectroanalytical Chemistry. Peter Vanysek will be the lead
c. Electrode Arrays and Combinatorial Chemistry. Request for support for 1 invited speaker for the Symposium on Combinatorial Arrays was approved by the committee.
d. DNA Sensors. Cosponsors: New Technology Div. and Organic and
e. The International Meeting on Olfaction and the Electronic Nose will be held and a proceedings volume will be produced for sale at the meeting. Attendees for this meeting will pay an additional registration fee to cover the cost of the proceedings volume, special banquet and a reception. There will also be a technical exhibit. Request for funding for support of 5 invited speaker registrations was approved.
It is important that Proceedings Volumes be available in time for sale at the meeting so that attendees can purchase them to enhance their participation.
6. San Francisco Meeting
Stetter proposed a short course on The analytical chemistry of chemical
sensors. To be offered at the San Francisco meeting Spring 2000.
We have one large Symposia on Chemical Sensors jointly with other Divisions of the
ECS. Petr will take the lead in coordinating papers and Joe will be available to
meeting with Petr in Chicago to finalize the program. Other organizers who will be needed
to assist in the coordination of abstracts into sessions are:
Add to the call for papers a line to request the author to identify a sub-topic area:
New materials and new methods for chemical sensing (Stetter and Hesketh)
Sensors for Process Monitoring (E. Stokes)
Integration of Sensors and Electronics (Ang and Hughes).
Proposal for guidelines for the student travel grant was presented by Hesketh and was modified by Vanysek. Unanimously approved see appendix.
Meeting adjourn at 22:30.
