Dr. Steven Reising, ECE associate professor, has been re-elected to the Administrative Committee for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). Reising, who has served on the committee since 2003, began his second term on January 1. He is one of six newly elected members for a three-year term ending in 2008.
"I am very pleased with Steve's active involvement in the IEEE," says Tony Maciejewski, ECE department head. "This recognition is well-deserved, considering his research reputation and growing program in the field of microwave remote sensing."
Reising came to Colorado State University in 2004 after six years as a faculty member at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He is a senior member of the IEEE and serves as an associate editor of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters since its inception in 2004. This year Reising is chairing the 9th Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing Applications, MicroRad '06, in San Juan, Puerto Rico from February 28 to March 3. Also in 2006, Reising is serving as the local organizing chair for the 2006 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS), which will be held at Denver's Colorado Convention Center from July 31 to August 4. More than 2,400 abstracts have been received to date for papers to be presented at IGARSS '06. ECE Professor V. Chandrasekar is the general co-chair of the event.
"I am excited about the next three years for the GRSS," comments Reising. "Its members are at the forefront of remote sensing innovations, making the connections that benefit society, such as hurricane forecasting." He adds, "I think hosting IGARSS here in the Colorado Front Range will be a highlight of 2006."
