IEEE Southeastern Michigan Computer and Education Section presents:

Embedded Systems Workshop 2018

IEEE South East Michigan Computer Chapter is offering a one-day (free) workshop on Embedded Systems on Saturday, October 20th, 2018. This workshop is open to all engineers and students. This is the 16th year that the event is being held.

The aim is to disseminate knowledge, directly benefiting the IEEE members, at the same time improve the technology skills pool, indirectly boosting the Michigan economy. Speakers and experts from the embedded systems industry will be making presentations, and will also be available for discussions and networking throughout the day. In addition to the technical presentations, there will be industry information display and professional recruitment
tables. Use this opportunity for networking with other engineers, industry experts and embedded enthusiasts.

Please confirm your participation by registering on the IEEE events web site (Deadline is 18th October 5 pm!)

Sponsors: Vector CANtech, Infineon and many others…
Vendor tables with demos, technical booklets, and job recruiting opportunities will be available. There is no cost to attend. A complimentary lunch is provided. Random raffle and door prizes representing the embedded controllers & systems industry will take place. All are welcome. Do post this flyer in your workplaces, share/inform your peers & colleagues about this event. It is a great way learn not only what is going on, but network with other professionals as well.

IEEE Young Professionals, Windsor Section presents

“Positive Control and Estimation of Dynamic Systems with Applications”

Abstract: Positive systems are rapidly gaining more attention and popularity due to their appearance in numerous applications. The response of positive systems to positive initial conditions and inputs remains in the positive orthant of state space. They offer nice robust stability properties which can be applied to solve many control and estimation problems not only for positive systems but also for general dynamic systems with positivity constraints. This talk will give an overview of positive systems and provide variety of models having positivity behaviors. Several illustrative examples with simulation results support the theoretical development.

Speaker: Bahram Shafai, Professor at Northeastern University. 

Speaker Bio: Bahram Shafai, professor at Northeastern University is also the Director of the ECE Capstone Design Program. He is also a member of the organizing committees for various international and IEEE-conferences. Dr. Shafai is Life Senior Member of IEEE.

IEEE Young Professionals and Women in Engineering, Windsor Section presents

“Energy Saving in Big Buildings”

Abstract: Frank Mills, Principal of Frank Mills Consulting Ltd, will present a lecture on “Energy saving in big building”. This lecture will provide an overview of natural ventilation starting with a review of early building ventilation to modern solutions which range from the use of windows (Simple NV) to the use of automatically controlled inlets, plenums, integral chimney and shafts, atrium spaces and roof outlets, turrets and exhausts (Advanced NV). It will cover design strategies, ventilation systems, components and their integration into building fabric and also design calculations, modelling techniques and exemplar projects including ‘full’ Natural Ventilation and ‘hybrid’ schemes and example projects.

Speaker: Frank Mills, Principal of Frank Mills Consulting Ltd. 

Speaker Bio: Frank Mills is a leading specialist in sustainable and energy efficient building engineering design. His experience includes the design, management, supervision, construction and operation of building services engineering across a range of building types including sports stadia, large scale mixed use developments sports facilities, leisure centers and hotels, retail community schemes internationally. He has been an ASHRAE member since 1971 and has been active on technical and standards committees and on Councils. He has presented ASHRAE ALI short courses on Natural Ventilation, Design of zero energy buildings and Healthcare HVAC and presented papers on Atrium design, Fire engineering, Education buildings, best practice engineering and sustainable development.

IEEE Computer Society South East Michigan Section presents

“Test Methods for Thermal Measurement, Reliabilty and Quality”

Abstract: From multi-core chips in slim smartphone devices or compact packaging of power semiconductor modules for lightweight electric vehicle inverters, understanding semiconductor package heat dissipation remains important for performance and product reliability purposes. This presentation introduces electrical test methods covered by JEDEC 51-1 standards. By utilizing this approach, the difficulties and problems measuring temperature at the component’s die are overcome.

Speaker: Joe Proulx, Senior Application Engineer

Speaker Bio: Joe has over 20+ years of experience as thermal engineer in industry. He has extensive CFD experience for electronics cooling analysis, and more than 7+ years specializing in thermal test measurement of semiconductors & reliability. Joe has several patents pending. He also regularly contributes to IEEE & SAE conference papers for power electronics reliability and electronics thermal simulation.

Date: March 29th 2018

Time: 6-8 PM EDT/EST

Location: Room, 254 Engineering Center Oakland University Rochester, MI 48309

IEEE South East Michigan Section Computer Society presents:

An Introduction to Data Science

AboutData Science is the study of the generalizable extraction of knowledge from data. Being a data scientist requires an integrated skill set spanning mathematics, statistics, machine learning, databases and other branches of computer science along with a good understanding of the craft of problem formulation to engineer elective solutions. This short lecture will introduce you to this rapidly growing field and introduce some of its basic principles and tools as well as its general mindset.

Speaker: Sharan Kalwani

Speaker Bio: With over 30+ years’ experience, in various aspects of the way hardware, software has evolved, you can expect a unique perspective on the whole evolution of data science. The speaker has presented at numerous conferences and is viewed as an active evangelist in his areas of expertise.

Date: 22nd Feb 2018
