The annual International Symposium on Applications of Ferroelectrics (ISAF) is sponsored by the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control Society (UFFC-S). The first ISAF meeting was held in 1968; since that time, meetings have been hosted all around the world. The first ISAF meeting held in Japan was in the year 2002 (Nara) and again in 2007.
The UFFC-S is one of many societies within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). UFFC-S has over 2,000 members. As a part of their mission, the UFFC-S sponsors three annual meetings: the ISAF meeting, the International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS), and the International Frequency Control Symposium (IFCS).
The ISAF meetings are coordinated by the Ferroelectrics Standing Committee (FerroCom) of the UFFC-S. In 2017, there were 45 members of FerroCom who come from academia, industry, and non-profits from around the world. FerroCom meets twice per year and representatives from FerroCom and the ferroelectrics scientific community serve many roles on the UFFC-S Administrative Committee.
The IEEE UFFC-S is interested in the theory, technology, materials, and applications relating to: the generation, transmission, and detection of ultrasonic waves and related phenomena; medical ultrasound, and associated technologies; ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and piezomagnetic materials; frequency generation and control, timing, and time coordination and distribution. This interest ranges from fundamental studies to the design and/or applications of devices, sensors, systems and manufacturing technologies within the general scope defined above.
Membership in the IEEE UFFC Society offers many opportunities for networking and connecting, educating and learning, and disseminating and learning about recent research, technology, and education outcomes.
