Milestones are proposed by any IEEE member and are sponsored by an IEEE Organizational Unit (OU)—such as an IEEE section, society, chapter or student branch. After recommendation by the IEEE History Committee and approval by the IEEE Board of Directors, a bronze plaque commemorating the achievement is placed at an appropriate site with an accompanying dedication ceremony.</p> <p><strong><a href="/node/632">Read More</a></strong></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-post-content-ref field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Related Content:</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/pages/ieee-milestones-superconductivity" hreflang="en">IEEE Milestones in Superconductivity</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-post-type-ref field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item badge badge-light"><a href="/taxonomy/term/131" hreflang="en">CSC Activity</a></div> Thu, 29 Nov 2018 23:27:51 +0000 jmcgillis 633 at https://dev.ieeecsc.org Italy Chapter Hosts CSC Talk https://dev.ieeecsc.org/post/italy-chapter-hosts-csc-talk <div>Italy Chapter Hosts CSC Talk</div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/8" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">jmcgillis</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 11/29/2018 -

The final result is none the worse because it was reached by stumbling - it is only our pride which is hurt when we fail to measure up to that perfection of progress that the great men of the past always seemed to achieve. Or did they? If we wish to boast of our achievements, let us not point to the unerring pursuit of truth by a logically faultless thinking-machine, but to the even more astonishing way in which truth can be caused to emerge from the toils of error and stupidity.”</em></p> <p>(Ref: A.

Kes, CSC Press, (2011) p 49)</p> <p>Oral histories provide us with a valuable insight into the circumstances under which the application superconductivity and technical superconductors has progressed and the IEEE Council on Superconductivity is actively engaged in selecting and sponsoring interviews with prominent &nbsp;senior researchers and managers in the field of superconductivity.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-post-type-ref field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item badge badge-light"><a href="/taxonomy/term/131" hreflang="en">CSC Activity</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-post-tag-ref field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item label label-default badge badge-pill badge-light"><a href="/taxonomy/term/47" hreflang="en">Oral Histories</a></div> </div> Wed, 17 Oct 2018 18:34:39 +0000 confcats_admin 432 at https://dev.ieeecsc.org
