Academic Services & Accomplishments


  • IEEE Leadership & Accomplishment
         
    Debatosh Guha started his activities as a volunteer in IEEE Calcutta Section, which laid foundation to establishing the joint AP/MTT Kolkata Chapter in 2004. As the founder Chair, he initiated member activities and provided leadership in increasing member strength over the last ten years. He conceptualized a biennial International Conference entitled IEEE Applied Electromagnetics Conference AEMC in 2007. Its fourth edition is due in 2013. AEMC is now the highest ranked EM Conference in India. To advance the antenna research, he conceived and initiated an IEEE Antenna Workshop ‘Indian Antenna Week’ (IAW) in 2010 summer. He has been serving IEEE in different capacities which include:
