Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Internet of Things: Challenges and Opportunities (Seminar)

on 14-03-2016

... ISCTE-IUL, Auditório 0NE01
14.03.2016 – 18h00-19h30

Presenter: Dr. Subhas Chandra Mukhopadhyay
Professor of Sensing Technology
School of Engineering and Advanced Technology
Massey University (Manawatu)
Palmerston North, New Zealand


The term Internet of Things (IoT) is used to describe embedded sensing devices with Internet connectivity, allowing them to interact with each other, services, and people on a global scale. This level of connectivity can increase reliability, sustainability, and efficiency by improved access to information. Environmental monitoring, home and building automation and smart grids could be interconnected, allowing information to be shared between systems.

One day, internet will connect everyone to everything of everywhere at every time and will be the backbone of business operations, but there is still a long way to go.

The seminar consists of two parts. In the first part, the IoT related research activities of the S2IS group (Smart Sensing and Intelligent Systems, Massey University, New Zealand) will be presented. In the second part, an overview of IoT will be described.

This seminar will present the challenges and opportunities of making the IoT feasible in the coming years.

Seminar - Antennas for RFID and BAN applications

on 11-03-2016

... Prof Jean-Marc Laheurte from Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée and Prof Anja Skrivervik from LEMA-EPFL will present their latest developments on RFID and BAN antennas in a Seminar to be held in the meeting room of IT in Lisbon, 11th floor, on March 11, 2016 at 14:30 .

Prof. Laheurte is a Professor with the University of Paris-Est Marne-La-Vallée since 2002. From 2007 to 2011, he was in charge of the Antenna Group, ESYCOM Laboratory, and was Head of the Gaspard Monge Institute. In 2012, he spent one year as an RF Senior Engineer with Tagsys RFID. He has organized several courses in various European institutions in the frame of the European School of Antennas. He has authored or coauthored two books, over 60 technical papers, and 60 conference papers. He holds two patents. His current research interests include the design and evaluation of diversity antennas for indoor communications, RF identification (RFID) systems, boundary area network (BAN) antennas, and BAN channel modeling.

Prof Anja Skrivervik is Professeur Titulaire at EFPL. Her teaching activities include microwaves and antennas. She has authored or co-authored over 150 scientific publications. Her research activities include electrically small antennas, implantable and wearable antennas, multifrequency and ultrawideband antennas, numerical techniques for electromagnetics, and microwave- and millimeter-wave microelectromechanical systems. She received the Latsis Award from EPFL. She is very active in European collaboration and European projects. She was the Chairperson of the Swiss URSI until 2012, and a Board Member of the European School of Antennas. She is frequently requested to review research programs and centers in Europe.
