  • IEEE European Tech Tour, Swiss Leg, May 11/12, 2015 Geneva/Neuchâtel: Our Life Member Group supported  the visit of 35 Life Members, mainly from the US, while travelling in Switzerland, visiting CERN and its Instrumentation Milestone on Monday 11 ( Guided by IEEE Fellow Dr. Eric Heijne) and CSEM and the Quartz Watch Milestone on Tuesday 12. The Tech Tour had started on May 8 in Paris and ended May 16 in Münich. Hugo Wyss attended both visits and played host at the final dinner reception (see picture below) offered by the Section to the Tour Participants in Restaurant des Halles, Neuchâtel on Tuesday night. The dinner was also attended by IEEE Fellow Prof. Eric Vittoz, representing EPFL, and Prof. Pierre Thommen, representing University of Neuchatel. In his welcoming speech Hugo also payed tribute to Senior Member Dr. Roger Wellinger, founder of CEH in 1961 (the parent organization of CSEM), who passed away in October 2014. Roger can be considered one of the founders of microelectronic technology in Switzerland and Eric Vittoz was one of his first employee at CEH, leading the development of very low power CMOS technology. We received many positive feed-backs from Tour Members pointing out that the Swiss Leg of the Tour was the most appreciated for its content and organization.
