Industry Liaisons

The IEEE Sensor Council Industrial Liaison Committee (SC-ILC) was established in 2016.


  • to drive stronger industry engagement in the area of sensors and 
  • to establish the industry track as part of the IEEE SENSORS flagship conference. 
  • to provide a channel to keep the industry chairs of the IEEE SENSORS conference series connected to enable implementation and learning of good ideas from conference to conference. 

SC-ILC Composition:

Chair: Gerard Hayes
Vice Chair: Sri Chandra

Past Chair: Sri Chandra, IEEE Standards Association (
Standing Members: The appointed Co-Chairs of the IEEE SENSORS Conferences’ Industry Day (current year and the year before)
For the year 2020, they are:

  1. Fred Roozeboom, Senior scientific advisor, TNO-Holst Centre, Eindhoven, Netherlands
  2. Felix Mayer, Chairman, Sensirion
