IEEE Magnetics Society History
August 26, 1964 - They started out 'TOC Nonlinear Magnetics'. Their name was changed on this day by the IEEE Executive Board to 'Group on Magnetics'.
1972 - 'Group on Magnetics' became 'Magnetics Society'.
Here is a link to an article by Ron Goldfarb on the history of the IEEE Magnetics Society.
On 26 August 1964, IEEE approved the formation of the IEEE Magnetics Group and it became group number 33.
IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MAGNETICS was first published in March 1965 as a quarterly
In 1972, the IEEE Magnetics Group became the IEEE Magnetics Society, one of the first IEEE groups to be upgraded.
In 2000, twenty-one long-time contributors to the Magnetics Society, including many former officers and members who were active during the transition from group to society, were awarded IEEE Millennium Medals. Recipients include: C. Bajorek, R. Barker, A. Bobeck, S. Charap, W. Doyle, S. Foner, F. Friedlaender, K. Harada, F. Humphrey, M. Kryder, H. Lord, F. Luborsky, C. Patton, A. Pohm, E. Pugh, S. Rubens, Y. Sakurai, S. Shtrikman, G. Slemon, J.Suozzi, and D. Thompson.
As of February 2020, there are thirty-eight IEEE Magnetics Society Chapters in existence
VISION and MISSION
The Vision of the IEEE Magnetics Society is to be the leading international professional organization for magnetism and for related professionals throughout the world.
Mission: "The IEEE Magnetics Society promotes the advancement of science, technology, applications and training in magnetism. It fosters presentation and exchange of information among its members and within the global technical community, including education and training of young engineers and scientists. It seeks to nurture positive interactions between all national and regional societies acting in the field of magnetism. The Society maintains the highest standard of professionalism and technical competency.
FIELD OF INTEREST
The IEEE Magnetics Society shall be involved with the:
"Treatment of all matters in which the dominant factors are the fundamental developments, design, and certain applications of magnetic devices. This includes consideration of materials and components as used therein, standardization of definitions, nomenclature, symbols, and operating characteristics; and exchange of information as by technical papers, conference sessions, and demonstrations."
As excerpted from the IEEE Magnetic Society's Constitution, the efforts of the IEEE Magnetics Society "shall be scientific, literary, and educational in character. The IEEE Magnetics Society shall strive for the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical and electronics engineering and of the allied arts and sciences, and the maintenance of a high professional standing among its members, all in consonance with the Constitution and Bylaws of the IEEE and with special attention to such aims within the field of interest of the Society as are hereinafter defined. The Society shall aid in promoting close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its members and to this end shall hold meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion, and through its committees shall study and provide for the needs of its members."
The objective of the Sister Society Agreement is to encourage the exchange and dissemination of technical information, and to promote understanding and cooperation between the members of the Sister Society and the IEEE Magnetics Society.
Sister Societies include: Taiwan Association for Magnetic Technology, The Magnetics Society of Japan, The Korean Magnetics Society, Chinese Institute of Electronics Magnetics Society (CIEMS), International Compumag Society (ICS), and Spanish Club of Magnetism (CEMAG).
