Chair Report

URSI EM Theory Symposium 2007

  • Originally planned for Alexandria, Egypt, in May 2007.
  • Serious concerns were raised recently about the viability of this venue.
    • Lack of preparation among Local Organizing Committee
    • Concerns about Safety
  • International URSI consulted with its International Advisory Group (IAG) and the national commission-B chairs.
  • It was agreed that the venue will be changed to Ottawa, Canada, at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier hotel, and held immediately following the 2007 URSI North America Radio Science Meeting (not joint with AP this year).

2007 URSI North American Radio Science Meeting

  • Participation in the 2007 North American Radio Science Meeting (Ottawa) is very important (we will not be meeting jointly with AP-S).

We need to make a good showing to establish our percentage of the revenue split.

  • Special sessions for Commission B are being organized together with A. Petosa of the Canadian National Committee. John Volakis is confirming the session details with the organizers.

Chair Report

Issue of Registration Rates

  • AP-S AdCom has decided that AP-S members will get a reduced registration rate at the annual IEEE AP-S/URSI Symposia. Should URSI offer any similar discount?
  • Possible proposal: If a person belongs to any commission of USNC, they will get the same rate as an AP-S member.
