ARTICLE I NAME AND PURPOSE

Section 1. The name of the organization constituted herein shall be the IEEE Sensors
Council.

Section 2. The purpose of the Council is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Sensors carried out throughout the IEEE and as such is exclusively scientific, literary and educational in character. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Council may sponsor IEEE Sensors related conferences and conference sessions, publish appropriate periodicals, sponsor IEEE Press publications, maintain an IEEE Sensors website, and engage in any other activity within its field of interest. All such actions must be in consonance with the Constitution, Bylaws, and Statements of Policy of the IEEE, and the field of interest of the Council, as defined below. The Council shall exist for the benefit of the member societies and will not evolve into a Society. The goal of the Council is to expand the IEEE’s role in sensors, not to usurp the societies’ sensor activities.

Section 3. The Field of Interest of the Council and its activities shall be the theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing and application of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical, and biological phenomena, with emphasis on the electronics, physics and reliability aspects of sensors and integrated sensor-actuators. The process for modifying the Field of Interest shall be in accordance with the procedures in the TAB Operations Manual (Section 4.4.C6) and amendments to this Constitution.
