Meeting Schedule of IEEE P3151™ – Standard for Spray-On Surface Antimicrobial Coatings

Tuesday, July 19th, 2022

IEEE P3151 – SURFACE ANTIMICROBIAL COATINGS WORKING GROUP (SACWG)

Standards Committee: EMB Standards Committee, Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (Primary sponsor)

Standards Committee Chair: Carole C. Carey c.carey@ieee.org

TITLE: Standard for Spray-On Surface Antimicrobial Coatings Test Methodology

Scope: This standard specifies an objective performance test methodology to assess the efficacy of non-porous surface antimicrobial coatings against different organism groups (e.g., bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds) present within hospital and healthcare environments. The standard is applicable to all types of environmental surface antimicrobial coatings that are designed to be sprayed onto and coat the surface to provide continual antimicrobial activity for a specified period of time. This standard excludes antimicrobial coatings (such as, antimicrobial plastics, polymers, silicone, paints, etc.) incorporated during the manufacturing process and non-environmental antimicrobial coatings specifically intended for medical devices.

Meeting Schedule of IEEE P3155™, Standard for Programmable Quantum Simulator

Tuesday, July 19th, 2022

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the Working Group for IEEE P3155™, Standard for Programmable Quantum Simulator.

The quantum simulator (i.e., one controllable quantum system simulates another) has a quantum advantage over classical supercomputers that fail by exponential explosion (i.e., number of parameters grows exponentially with the quantum system size). This standard defines programming methods of quantum simulators according to analog (i.e., target Hamiltonian), digital (i.e., non-native Hamiltonian evolution) and hybrid (i.e., quantum-quantum or quantum-classical architectures) devices for the simulation of quantum phenomena beyond classical computing applications. It includes algorithms to represent the nano-scale properties of quantum simulation devices, and excludes any proposal for the architecture of quantum simulators.

Meeting registration is required.

Join the IEEE NTC Standards Committee and Make Your Mark

Whether you are new to the nanotechnology field, or are a professional considering a change and want to find out more about nanotechnology, we invite you to join the IEEE Standards Association IEEE NTC Standards Committee in making a meaningful impact on your industry and organization.

The scope of the Nanotechnology Council Standards Committee (NTC/SC) is to provide a focal point for cooperative activities, both internally and externally, including the promotion, consolidation, and coordination of nanotechnology activities among IEEE entities in the theory, design, and development of nanotechnology and its scientific, engineering and industrial applications.

Our goal is to have the IEEE NTC Standards Committee provide a platform for our members to push for innovation in nanotechnology globally, access industry-driven guidance to governance bodies, and eventually shape a more unified culture of nanoscale production for years to come.

  • Join IEEE-NANO, the annual IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology, to be held virtually from 28-31 July 2021. The conference will cover key topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology, including:
      • Developing new nanomaterials or controlling matter at the nanometer-length scale
      • Studying the fundamental physical, chemical, or biological properties of nanomaterials and nanostructures
      • Manipulating and optimizing nanomaterials and nanostructures to create new nanosensors, nanoactuators, and nanoelectronic/nanophotonic devices
  • Become a member: As a member, you will have the unique opportunity to help develop standards, collaborate with various IEEE entities on nanotechnology activities, and network and grow your career.
      • If you are interested in participating in the committee, please contact me as the Nanotechnology Council Standards Committee Chair at tyler.l.jaynes@ieee.org, or the IEEE SA Program Manager, Vanessa Lalitte, at v.lalitte@ieee.org.

This is an exciting time to be involved in the development of nanotechnology standards, and the IEEE NTC Standards Committee welcomes you to join and grow with our community of innovators.
