This workshop was held at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, Canada. This was an ideal site for such as meeting. It was here on 12 December 1901 that [[Milestones:Reception of Transatlantic Radio Signals, 1901|Guglielmo Marconi received the first transatlantic radio signal]]. 27 July 2001 was the 135th anniversary of the landing of [[Milestones:Landing of the Transatlantic Cable, 1866|the first transatlantic cable at Heart's Content in Newfoundland]].

In 2001 a special feature was added to the workshop, a worldwide Student History Paper Contest. A grant from the IEEE Foundation made it possible to provide travel funds for the winners of the contest. Additional funds for the conference were supplied by the National Science Foundation. The five papers, presented in a poster session are also available online.

2001 IEEE Conference on the History of Telecommunications

The 2001 IEEE Conference on the History of Telecommunications (CHT2001) was the fourth in a series of workshops sponsored by the IEEE History Committee and the IEEE History Center at Rutgers University. The profound role telecommunications has had in shaping the modern world made this an important topic of historical study!

This workshop was held at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, Canada. This was an ideal site for such as meeting. It was here on 12 December 1901 that Guglielmo Marconi received the first transatlantic radio signal. 27 July 2001 was the 135th anniversary of the landing of the first transatlantic cable at Heart's Content in Newfoundland.

A total of 27 papers were submitted for this conference, of which 18 are available online.

In 2001 a special feature was added to the workshop, a worldwide Student History Paper Contest. A grant from the IEEE Foundation made it possible to provide travel funds for the winners of the contest. Additional funds for the conference were supplied by the National Science Foundation. The five papers, presented in a poster session are also available online.

Corresponding Papers

Student Paper Contest

Student Winners: Jakob Nebeker, Keiko Tanaka, Rahul Malik, Cornelia Connolly and Rodrigo Carvallo-Fernandini, (l to r)
Student Winners: Jakob Nebeker, Keiko Tanaka, Rahul Malik, Cornelia Connolly and Rodrigo Carvallo-Fernandini, (l to r)

Through a generous grant from the IEEE Foundation, CHT2001 conducted its first worldwide history paper competition among the IEEE Student Branches and offered the winners an opportunity to travel to St. John's and present his or her winning paper at a Poster Session during this Conference. In addition, each winner's Student Branch received an honorarium.

The winners attended an Awards Luncheon, sponsored by Aliant, during the conference. Presentation of the Awards was made by Martha Sloan, 2001 IEEE History Committee Chair, and Dr. Maxwell House, Lieutenant- Governor of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Special recognition goes to Wally Read, Local Arrangements Chair, who arranged for the Lieutenant-Governors attendance, and funding by Aliant.
