  1. 1. IEEE - IEEE Annual Election - Region 10 Candidates (Asia and Pacific) Page 1 of 6 IEEE Annual Election - Region 10 Candidates (Asia and Pacific) For IEEE Region 10 Delegate- Elect/Director-Elect, 2011-2012; On this Page: Delegate/Director, 2013-2014. Jose (Joe) B. Cruz, Jr. Toshio Fukuda Ramakrishna Kappagantu Jose (Joe) B. Cruz, Jr. JOSE (JOE) B. CRUZ, JR. (Nominated by IEEE Region 10) Retired Binan, Laguna, Philippines Jose B. Cruz, Jr. interacts with students and faculty in the Philippines. Previously he served as Distinguished Professor of Engineering and Dean of Engineering at the Ohio State University, USA. He was on the faculties of the University of California in Irvine, the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, and the University of the Philippines in Diliman. He received his degrees from the University of the Philippines (BS), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MS), and the University of Illinois (PhD), all in electrical engineering. His research is on sustainable networked control systems. He received the IEEE James H. Mulligan, Jr. Education Medal and the American Automatic Control Council Richard E. Bellman Control Heritage Award. He is a Member of the National Academy of Engineering (US), a Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Science and Technology (Philippines), IEEE Life Fellow, and Fellow of the International Federation on Automatic Control, AAAS, and ASEE. IEEE Accomplishments – As Chair of the Technical Activities Board: He led the creation of new councils and societies. He led the establishment of new society conferences. He improved financial management of society conferences. He managed revenue increase from society publications. As Chair of the Publications Board: He led the creation of new society transactions and magazines. He managed the increase of income from copyrights from educational institutions that allowed reproduction of articles for student use. He oversaw the maintenance of high quality in editorial productions of all IEEE publications. He stressed the importance of high integrity and balanced reporting of our newspaper, The Institute. He continuously encouraged and commended the IEEE Spectrum magazine, which received several external awards. He stimulated the growth of the IEEE Press. He had oversight in minimizing subscription abuses from libraries. As President of the Control Systems Society: 11-08-2010
  2. 2. IEEE - IEEE Annual Election - Region 10 Candidates (Asia and Pacific) Page 2 of 6 He oversaw the steady growth of the annual Conference on Decision and Control. He led the effort towards quality improvement of society publications. As Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control: He assured high standards and quality of articles. Statement – The strength of IEEE is its collective ability in “advancing technology for humanity” but there is a need to strengthen the linkages between regional sections/councils and specialized technical societies/councils to empower individual members. IEEE should insure that individual members benefit from our advances in technology contained in our conferences and publications. Using my extensive background and experience as IEEE Vice President for Technical Activities and IEEE Vice President for Publications Activities, I intend to increase the value of IEEE to local members. In particular: 1. I will encourage local entities to gain a deeper understanding of other parts of IEEE, to marshal a concerted effort to provide more meaningful member services. 2. I will initiate the development of Learning Tutorials in Region 10 (Asia & Pacific) on new technologies and current professional topics as part of career development for individual members and help them navigate through our conferences/publications. 3. I will seek greater participation of sections in Society conferences held in Region 10. A greater share of financial returns can enable local entities to offer broader member services.

  3. 3. IEEE - IEEE Annual Election - Region 10 Candidates (Asia and Pacific) Page 3 of 6 Nagoya University Nagoya, Japan Dr. Fukuda studied at Yale University from 1973-75 and received the Ph.D. from the University of Tokyo in 1977. He is presently Professor of Department of Micro and Nano Systems Engineering and Director of the Center for Micro and Nano Mechatronics at Nagoya University. He is mainly engaged in research in the field of intelligent robotic systems and micro and nano robotics, and has published 1,800+ publications in scientific journals, conference proceedings and reports. He has served as Vice President of the International Fuzzy System Association in 1998-2003. He was President of Society of Fuzzy Systems and Intelligent Informatics in 2003-2005. He was awarded the City of Grenoble Medal in 1997. He was also awarded Humboldt Research Prize (2003), Science and Technology Research Award from Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (2005), Best paper award from SICE (2007), and was elected as a member of Japan Council of Science (2008-2010). IEEE Accomplishments – I have been working in IEEE technical and regional activities for many years. In 1988, I started the Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems in Tokyo and served as founding general chair, which has grown as one of the most important conferences in the world. I also founded some other conferences in Region 10 later on. In 1992 I formed the Chapter of Robotics and Automation to enhance regional activities as well as technical activities which included student activities. I also joined to create the IEEE Transactions on Mechatronics in 1996 and became the Editor-in-Chief in 2000-2002 to improve the quality of the papers in publication. When I became the first non-US President in Robotics and Automation Society, I initiated more regional activities in the Society and promoted the globalization of the Society. I also founded the Nanotechnology Council in 2002, served as founding president, after the committee activities in 1998-2001, by inviting non- members to join this community. As Division Director in 2001-2002, I have promoted more globalization in the IEEE communities. Since 2009 I have been fostering intra-regional and global activities by promoting Technical Seminars, Distinguished Lecture and other programs as regional technical activities coordinator in Region 10. Statement – Region 10 is no doubt the largest and most important region in IEEE with high technical and market potentials, and so will grow furthermore for more global research and development, and manufacturing in the world. To attain these goals, more higher education programs should be enhanced for the diversity of this region. Thus, Region 10 should form more informative, more creative and better networked communities with the strong cooperation and collaboration with IEEE Technical Activities. If elected, I will do my best to enhance the value of the membership in Region 10 by focusing on the following areas: 1. Promote intra-regional collaborations between Councils, Sections, Chapters and Student Branches and inter-regional activities for the techno-global world. 2. Promote strong collaboration with IEEE Technical Activities in Region 10. 3. Strengthen the relationship with industry and academic organizations to enrich the human networks in Region 10 and invite non-members to join our communities. 4. Support the initiatives of industry and academic entities as well as standard activities in Region 10. IEEE Activities – (M’83-SM’93-F’95) OFFICE: Division X Director, 2001-02.
