IEEE MEMS-TC Impromptu Lunch Meeting at the 2018 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium

Fresh from a go-ahead from IEEE to start the IEEE MEMS Technical Community, a number of MEMS-TC’ers who happened to be attending the IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium in Kobe, Japan, had an impromptu meeting/lunch. We enjoyed various sushi dishes while reviewing exactly what was an IEEE Technical Community and seeding plans for how it might grow in the next few years. With no budget, we were all prepared to cover lunch ourselves when Jason Weigold, one of our industry participants, offered to cover everything.

Being an impromptu meeting, and given that the IEEE MEMS-TC just came into existence, there were no slides used or minutes taken. But here is a nice photo commemorating the event.
