Technical and Standards Activities Committee

T

he mission of Technical and Standards Activities
Committee (TSAC) of the IEEE Instrumentation and
Measurement Society (IMS) is to enable and promote
Technical Committees (TCs) as the Society's "Centers of Expertise," and support and promote participation of individual
IMS members in Standards Activities. Over the past years, the
TSAC has managed 22 active TCs and supported the development of 18 IEEE Standards. The TSAC has worked closely with
other committees in the IMS to promote various activities. For
example, the TSAC works tightly with the Conference Committee to engage in the organization of various conferences and
workshops. To date, our TC-25 fully sponsors the IEEE International Symposium on Medical Measurements & Applications
(MeMeA), TC-37 sponsors the IEEE International Symposium
on Measurements and Networking, TC-17 and TC-19 sponsor
the Conference on Precision Electromagnetic Measurements
(CPEM), and TC-13 and TC-37 sponsor the International Symposium in Sensing and Instrumentation in IoT Era. Since 2017,
our TCs have been actively involved in promoting our flagship
conference: IEEE International Instrumentation & Measurement
Technology Conference (I2MTC). Every year, some of the TCs
propose special sessions that are related to their technical expertise and attract many attendees to join the I2MTC.
TSAC actively monitors activities in which each TC is engaged. We have TC guidelines to help TCs maintain their

normal operation and provide detailed procedures to form a
new TC or close a TC that is not active for several years. As
an example, condition monitoring and fault diagnosis is attracting more and more attention from both the academic
and industrial community in the era of Industry 4.0. To encourage research on subtopics and challenging topics related
to condition monitoring and fault diagnosis, and to promote
and facilitate the exchange of knowledge between scientists,
a new TC-3: Condition Monitoring and Fault Diagnosis Instrument was proposed by Drs. Xuefeng Chen and Weihua Li,
and approved by AdCom of the IMS, to serve as a platform for
scientists and engineers involved in the field of condition monitoring and fault diagnosis in order to focus on the potential
applications in industry.
To recognize the best technical committee of the IMS, an
outstanding TC award was set up. Each year, one TC is selected to receive this award. In 2017, the first one was awarded
to TC-39, which was founded in 2009 to create a reference for
many members of the society working in the field of definition and characterization of measurement systems, devices,
components and methods for modern power grids. TC-25 and
TC-32 received the outstanding TC award in the following
years, respectively.
In summary, TSAC would like to serve all of our IMS members in various capacities.
