William W. Moses

William W. Moses (Nominated by Division IV)

(Nominated by IEEE Division IV)
Senior Staff Scientist
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Berkeley, CA, USA
Bill received his B.A. from Dartmouth College, graduating Magna Cum Laude with Highest Distinction in Physics, and his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA, in 1986. Since then he has worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where he is a Senior Staff Scientist (the equivalent of Full Professor). His career has centered on imaging ionizing radiation, including nuclear medical imaging (especially Positron Emission Tomography or PET), homeland security, subatomic particle physics, and environmental remediation.
Bill has led research groups for almost 20 years, been principal investigator on 38 competitive research grants, and advised 18 graduate students. He has over 200 peer-reviewed publications, over 100 invited presentations, and has served on advisory boards for the National Institutes of Health, the US Department of Energy, homeland security agencies, and several major universities.
IEEE Accomplishments and Activities
  • As the Chairman of the IEEE Conferences Committee, I worked to keep IEEE conferences the most influential provider of engineering information in the world. I led the IEEE response to a rash of conference quality issues. I worked closely to maintain the IEEE quality standards through cooperation, education, oversight, and control, as opposed to coercion and punishment. I established a new Co-Sponsorship approval processes, reducing the number of IEEE OUs that have the ability to approve Co-Sponsorship from ~2500 to ~300. I initiated a process for reviewing the quality of individual conferences, along with a process for preventing the proceedings from conferences that fail the quality check from being acquired by Xplore. As a result, IEEE is now a leader in quality control in the scientific conference publication industry. We need to make it easier for volunteers to run IEEE conferences, and so I have initiated a program to develop and deploy conference management tools both at the conference and the Society/Council level.
  • As a member of the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board (PSPB), I encouraged the adoption of an Open Access strategy that meets the needs of IEEE, authors, universities, industry, governments, and society.
  • As a member of TAB Management Committee (TMC), I developed quantitative metrics to assess the health of the Societies and Councils within TAB.
  • As the president of the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS), I restructured the Editorial Boards of two NPSS Transactions. As most NPSS conferences didn’t use professional meeting planners, I established a very successful pilot program whereby NPSS provided IEEE meeting planners to all of their conferences for a three-year period. After this trial, all but one of the conferences decided that they should always use professional planners.

Volunteers are the life blood of IEEE. They create and manage the IEEE conferences and publications, and they develop the innovations that IEEE needs. The most important thing I can do as Division Director is to support these valuable volunteers. For example, we need to make it easier for them to run conferences—my definition of success is that conference organizers want to run their conferences under IEEE because it is so easy!

Another thing that I will do is to forge stronger links between the Societies in Division IV. Although there is little technology overlap, we can all benefit by sharing best practices on managing our conferences, publications, and other activities.

Finally, my personality is ideal for this position. I am a good listener, a rational thinker, a plain talker, and I’m willing to change my mind in response to a good argument. I have had many conversations with the Board and understand their perspective. But most importantly, I am a doer and will energetically “do” on behalf of Division IV.
