Iberic Meeting of Optics Students (IMOS) 2022 - CfP extended

on 13-06-2022

... Optica Student Chapter at University of Aveiro (Aveiro), Portugal, Physics League Chapter (Valladolid), Spain, and IOPTICA - Institute of Optics Optica Student Chapter (Madrid), Spain, are organizing the 1st Iberic Meeting of Optics Students (IMOS) 2022, which will be held at University of Aveiro on 13th-15th of June 2022.

The program of IMOS 2022 covers 5 major topics of optics and photonics: Biophotonics & Visual Optics, Fiber Optics & Optical Communications, Integrated Optics, Quantum Computing, and Communication, and Photonics & Space Engineering.

Based on what was previously referred to as Iberian IONS, the conference will provide a platform for students across Europe and the world to network and share their scientific endeavors. In the last Iberian IONS, there was an average of over 80 participants, with keynote talks for each topic given by internationally renowned researchers. This year the event will also count on the Director of Optica Europe, Yann Amouroux.

The abstract submission was extended, runs until May 1st.

TeamUp5G 3rd Training on Standardization and Workshop on Testbeds and Visible Light Communications

on 06-06-2022

... The "3rd training on Standardization and Workshop on Testbeds and Visible Light Communications" is organized by TeamUp5G and will be held on June 6-8/2022, at the University of Aveiro and sponsored by the IEEE PT VTS Chapter and the IEEE PT ComSoc Chapter.

The Workshop aims at providing a forum where the Early Stage Researchers will bring together their recent research efforts and learn, by a practical approach, how to prepare original contributions to standardization bodies, through brainstorming and discussion with tutors and fellow researchers.

As the Innovative Training Network is approaching its final year, the outcomes already include prototypes, experimental platforms and testbeds. The Workshop will include a tutorial and demonstration of open Radio Access Networks, with application to real virtualized and open 4G and 5G networks, provided by IS-Wireless, and one morning dedicated to Visible Light Communications towards 6G (with a perspective from research on VLC at University of Oulu’s 6G Flagship and UC3M). The last day will also include talks and visits to the ORCIP (Optical Radio Convergence Infrastructure for Communications and Power Delivering) and the Aveiro STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) City initiative toward digital transformation.

The “New RAN TEchniques for 5G UltrA-dense Mobile networks” (TeamUp5G) is a leading European Training Network (ETN) in the frame of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (MSCA ITN) of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework, with project number 813391, whose research is focused on the evolution of the 5G wireless communications.

The attendance is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. Registration is open until Sunday, May 29.
