Present: Joe Stetter, Peter Hesketh, Tim Henning, Masuo Aizawa, Simon Ang, Dennis
Turner, Robert Frankenthal, Henry G. Hughes, Petr Vanysek, Leo Kriksunov, Elena Shembel
and Leonid Boguslavsky (in order of the attendance list).
Chair: Peter Hesketh (U. of Illinois at Chicago)
Vice Chairman: Joseph Stetter (Illinois Institute of Technology)
Treasurer/Secretary: Richard M. Crooks (Texas A&M)
Peter Hesketh called to order 7:45 PM as scheduled. Attendance = People on attached
1. Bob Frankenthal gave update on Philadelphia 2002 meeting celebrating the centennial
of the ECS. Same amount of time for programs - start and end _ hr earlier/later. Three
special plenary lectures. Looking for two more plenary lecturers. Someone in solid state
and electrochemistry. Many special plans.
2. Joe Stetter reported that Dick Crooks, Secretary Treasurer was stuck in College
Station, TX because of a tornado that was in the process of destroying Dallas and so, due
to an act of God, could not perform his duties. Joe will take the minutes of our meeting
and give the treasurer's report.
3. Approval of the minutes from the previous meeting; Petr moved and Henry seconded.
4. Discuss review of Boston Meeting

[Workshop on Chemical Sensors by Harrison and Ricco.]
NEXT ---- Spring 00 Toronto Plans: -
Impedance Spectroscopy - Buck/Vanysek/Hesketh - PE division
Sensors Division. - the organizers have not requested anything
Sensors for Energy Technology - Kinoshita/Stetter - Sensors
Energy Technology. Stetter will work with ET division and keep u
symposium and get some papers for the sensor division so we share
Sensors for Diabetes - T. Henning/Cunningham: request $600; 2
only Sensor division sponsorship - target 30 papers [minimum 21
for proceedings volume] proceedings volume planned. Approval of
society and sensor division chairman needed for solicitation of
Henry 1st; Stetter 2nd; approved.
Peter Hesketh will request that this 2-day symposium runs
and Thursday to make it closer to the Biosensors 2000 symposium
held next week in San Diego.
Polymer Manufacturing Process Sensors II - Sensor Division
Ed Stokes GE - last meeting had 9 papers in Boston - Petr moves
offer one day of registration per day of symposium scheduled.
per day] - 2nd Hesketh - approved.
Fall 00 Phoenix:
Microstructures and Microfabricated Systems V -
Ceramic Sensors V - Anderson/Liu/Allendorf
Performance of Packaged and Integrated Sensor Systems - T.
Stetter, [includes engineering aspects of integration with flow
hardware and software, packaging and test and evaluation;
implementation of sensors!].
[Joe will talk with Ted to add the symposium volume; conference
Henry and add Univ. Arkansas as a added plus]
Acoustic Sensors VI - Rob Hillman, Steve Martin.
Spring 01 Washington DC
Industrial Process Monitoring Sensors V [Petr to find someone for
Transportation Sensors [chairman to look into if this goes]
Sensors Arrays - Bill Heinemann [includes what chemists call
sensors, multivariate sensors and other sensor arrays] - Joe
agreed to help - Joe will talk to Bill about getting 3-4 days and
symposium volume - minimum 21 papers.
DNA Sensors - Cindy Bruckner-Lea - chairman to contact and see if
this still is a go? Ask for the focus -electrochemistry or what -
biochip??? Tim Henning to consider helping?
Fall 01 San Francisco [Joint ECS/ISE meeting] - Chemical
Sensors V - Vanysek et al.
Workshop on Analytical Chemistry of Chemical Sensors - Joe
We will only have one - five day symposium.
Spring 02 Philadelphia
WE NEED IDEAS AND VOLUNTEERS!!! [Physical sensors and
MEMs sensors - Peter Hesketh, Lab on a Chip, Sensors for severe
environments; automotive sensors; process control sensors,
Dick Crooks says we have:
We need to put together the sensor awards committee. Suggested - Janata, University;
Ricco, Industry and email Peter@eecs.uic.edu with another suggestion.
Dick Crooks asked Joe [in his absence] to mention transferring $6,000 to the awards
fund this year. After discussion this group decided to not do it and discuss it next time.
Henry said we should expand to more than chemical sensors - physical sensors.
Peter H to look into a meeting that doesn't conflict with Hilton Head. We already
suggested Physical Sensors for Hilton head - and this combined with MEMs may be a good
choice for Pa in 2002. Hesketh will look into it. Problem may occur with Transducers'
meeting. Maybe move to DC in 2001 [Transducer's is in Munich 2001].
Input is solicited for Sensor Newsletter.
Meeting Adjourned 11 PM
Joe Stetter. Vice-chairman [for Dick Crooks, Secretary Treasurer]
