Professor Toshio Fukuda, the Honorary Chair of MARSS2018 (Nagoya, Japan, July 04-08), will run for the IEEE President 2020.
It would be extremely beneficial for robotics and automation community to have (for the first time) an IEEE President from this area, if we consider the rapidly growing impact of robotics and automation.
Prof. Fukuda served as a member of IEEE Board of Directors as Division X Director and Region 10 Director for many years after his service as RAS President.
Division X governs nine IEEE Societies and Councils including RAS. Region 10 manages the geographical area of Asia and Oceania.
