Chicago Section Board Meeting – Open to all IEEE members
Title: “SOFTWARE IS STILL PATENTABLE IN THE US“
Speaker: Lynn Peng is a registered patent attorney who earned her J.D. from Washington University School of Law in 2011, where she was an editor of the Washington University Global Studies Law Review. She received her B.S., with honors, in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois in 2006, where she was a Chancellor’s Scholar and a James Scholar in electrical engineering. Prior to law school, Lynn spent two years working as a product development engineer with Intel Corporation in Chandler, Ariz.
Overview: Software is still patentable in the United States, but the 2014 Supreme Court ruling inAlice Corp. v. CLS Bank Int’l has changed the rules. Ms. Peng will provide examples of both patent-eligible software patents and patent-ineligible software patents from post-Alice cases.

IEEE EMC Society Chicago Chapter Meeting
Scott Piper General Motors Corporation Guest Presenter
Seeing is Believing – Demonstration Data Showing Three EMC Concepts
Scott will share with the chapter a few of the hardware demonstrations he has presented at EMC symposia in the past few years (minus the hardware). Three subjects will be discussed – (1) Shielding for EMC, (2) Crosstalk on Printed Circuit Boards, and (3) Embedded Capacitance vs. Circuit Board Topology. Measurement data will be presented along with numerical modeling data and simple textbook equations to further explain the measurements.
Scott Piper has earned a BSEE from the University of Michigan – Dearborn in 2004. Scott has since worked as an EMC engineer in both the Aerospace and Automotive industry and was the primary engineer responsible for the initial purchase and implementation of 3D electromagnetic simulation tools in two corporations. Scott currently works for General Motors Corporation as an EMC engineer where he is a global resource for EMC modeling and simulation
Dinner and refreshments: 6:30 to 7:00
Presentation Time: 7:00 to 8:30 PM
“Advances in Electromagnetic Sensing and Imaging in the RF to the THz Spectrum” by Dr. Sami Gopalsami
Sensing and imaging systems abound in the electromagnetic spectrum from RF to THz for many applications including automotive, industrial, medical, environmental, and national security sectors. These applications exploit the physics of interaction of electromagnetic waves with materials, which depends on the variation of the material’s reflection, absorption, and scattering properties as a function of wavelength. Different physics come into play as the wavelength varies from meters to micrometers and the photon energy varies from micro eV to milli eV. This talk will give an overview of electromagnetic sensing and imaging research at Argonne for in-situ, standoff, and remote sensing applications. In particular, remote sensing systems in the millimeter wave spectrum will be described, which are more effective for persistent monitoring in optically obscuring conditions such as when it is cloudy, dusty, smoky, day, or night.
Please RVSP to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 14, 2015 close of business.
Join us for a day of educational presentations on Power Conversion and Lighting, presented by our design experts. The topics can be implemented directly in your designs today to improve efficiency, reliability and control.
The Power Your Life Seminar goes beyond product presentation and combines new advanced concepts, basic design principals and “real world” application examples. Don’t miss this chance to discover and ask the leading industry experts your questions to help you with your next design.
