Congratulations to Mr. Srinivas Vanka, Ph.D. Student under the supervision of Professor Ishiang Shih (and former ECE Professor Zetian Mi) who was awarded the Best Presentation Award at Symposium NM7—Semiconductor Nanowires for Energy Applications for his presentation titled "An InGaN Nanowire/Si Tandem Photoanode for High‐Efficiency Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting".
Prof. Lawrence Chen has agreed to serve as the first Academic Lead of the eLATE (enhancing learning and teaching in Engineering) initiative. Prof. Chen will work in collaboration with academic staff and the Pedagogical Coordinator towards meeting the initiative’s objectives, bringing the perspective of a faculty member. Professor Chen is one of our Faculty’s leaders in teaching and learning improvement, and has a growing record of advancing the state of education in our Faculty by implementing new teaching methodologies in FACC courses as well as undergraduate and graduate ECSE courses.
Work by Sharif Sadaf, Yong-Ho Ra, Prof. Thomas Szkopek, and Prof. Zetian Mi on Al-tunnel junction visible nanowire LED has been featured in the magazine Semiconductor Today.
Prof. Dániel Varró received a Most Influential Paper Award at the recent IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC 2016) for the paper G. Varró, A. Schürr, D. Varró: Benchmarking for graph transformation published at VL/HCC 2005.
Congratulations to Professor Fabrice Labeau, who has recently been honoured by the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS):
ECE Student Jhelum Chakravorty, was awarded the Best Student Paper Award at the 6th IFAC Workshop on Distributed Estimation and Control in Networked Systems (NecSys 2016) for her paper "Remote-state estimation with packet drop". This award is given on originality, clarity, and potential impact on practical applications or theoretical foundations of estimation and control in networked systems. Jhelum is supervised by Professor Aditya Mahajan. Congratulations Jhelum!
September 16, 12:00-4:30pm
Open to all students, this half-day teaching workshop provides opportunities to develop teaching skills, learn about myCourses, and engage in discussions with other graduate students and TAs. Take advantage of this opportunity and learn skills to enhance your graduate experience.
ECE student Ali Hashemi won second place in the Best Student Paper Award contest at the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS 2016) for his paper "Matrix Reordering for Efficient List Sphere Decoding of Polar Codes". ISCAS is the flagship conference of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, with 1687 submitted papers and 781 accepted papers. Ali is supervised by Professor Warren Gross. Congratulations to Ali – we are very proud of his accomplishment!
ECE undergraduates Jacob Barnett, Charles Gather, and Luke Soldano won the runner-up prize in the Mining Challenge of the 13th International Conference on Mining Software Repositories. Their submission to the challenge was based on their capstone design project that was supervised by Prof. Shane McIntosh this past academic year.
