    Season’s greetings from OES President Jerry Carroll
    Seasons greetings to all our OES members as we get ready to start a new year. Our membership has increased and we have several new Chapters with others being organized. Our two OCEANS Conferences in Santander, Spain and Kona, Hawaii were very successful. We will have OCEANS Conferences in Yeosu, Korea and Hampton Roads, Virginia in 2012. We had our first Conference organized by Societies in the IEEE Division IX on Sustainable and Integrated Transportation FISTS 2011 in Vienna, Austria. Our OTC Conference was expanded with an Arctic OTC in Houston in February and OTC Brazil in October. Our OES Members are a vital part of the OTC Technical Program.. We had our 10th Current, Waves and Turbulence Measurement Workshop in Monterey, CA. in March and participated in SYMPOL in India in November. Under the direction of Editor-in-Chief Bill Carey, our Journal of Oceanic Engineering has maintained its high standards. Thanks to all our volunteers and to our members for another great year. Special thanks to our retiring ADCOM members and welcome to our new ADCOM members. -- Jerry C Carroll, President, IEEE/OES

    OES Members Malcolm Heron and Shahriar Negahdaripour elevated to IEEE Fellow

    IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation. The total number selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership. Details at http://www.ieee.org/membership_services/membership/fellows. Please join us in congratulating Malcolm Heron for his contributions to the application of radio science to oceanic and terrestrial remote sensing, and Shahriar Negahdaripour for contributions to underwater computer vision.

    OES member Dr.. G. Clifford Carter receives the 2012 IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal

    The Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal is presented for outstanding achievements in signal processing. Details at: http://www.ieee.org/about/awards/medals/kilby.html

    Please join us in congratulating Dr. G. Clifford Carter for contributions to the fundamentals of coherence and time-delay estimation and to underwater acoustics signal processing.

    USA Pavilion - University of Virginia Student Ambassador Program

    The USA Pavilion at Expo 2012 will present an interactive, exciting and educational story that highlights America’s relationship with the Expo theme of the “Living Ocean and Coast.” Featuring the themes of Diversity, Wonder and Solutions, the USA Pavilion will share the voices and hopes of the American people with our friends and partners in Korea and around the globe. The 12,000-square foot exhibition space will house exhibits and programming that represent the unique and diverse nature of America’s ocean and coastal environments and communities.

    College undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to be part of this once in a lifetime experience through the Student Ambassador Program, a partnership between the USA Pavilion and the University of Virginia. This program recruits and trains volunteer students to serve as guides and national representatives for the United States at Expo 2012 in Yeosu, South Korea.
