CompactDAQ and LabVIEW Hands-on Workshop

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

During this complimentary seminar, NI engineers will guide you through hands-on exercises designed to help you evaluate NI CompactDAQ and LabVIEW for your measurement application. See how you can create a data acquisition system for collecting, analyzing and storing measurement data using NI hardware and software.

Register and attend this seminar to use NI CompactDAQ and LabVIEW to:

  • Build an example data acquisition system using a variety of sensor types including temperature, strain, audio, or vibration
  • Understand key steps in system configuration
  • Familiarize yourself with automating measurements and signal processing

Who should attend:
This seminar is designed for engineers, technicians, and scientists who are evaluating NI CompactDAQ and LabVIEW for a data acquisition project or application. It is not intended as training for existing customers, students or professors. If you are looking for information about training, we invite you to explore the following options:

  • When: 21 October 2016, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Where: University of Windsor, EPICentre, 2nd Floor

Labview training bootcamp

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

IEEE Windsor section is co-sponsored a NI Labview training bootcamp, a 5-days of training at EPICcenter at University of Windsor. These training sessions are free to attend for recent graduates (a $3,200 USD value), but you should register in advanced.

If you are new to LabVIEW or looking to improve your skills, this free hands-on course introduces you to graphical programming with LabVIEW system design software. Learn how to develop data acquisition, instrument control, data logging, and measurement analysis applications. Benefit from an opportunity to take the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) exam, a globally recognized entry-level certification exam, for free.

Technical Seminar on Convex Optimization

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Title: Convex Optimization and Its Applications in Signal Processing

Time/Date: May 19th, 1:00 – 2:20pm

Place: Toldo Biulding Room 204, University of Windsor


Recently, we have witnessed the advances of convex optimization, including theoretical aspects (e.g., interior-point methods) and general-purpose software tools (e.g., SeDuMi). It has been recognized as an extremely useful technique in helping with addressing a wide range of signal processing problems, including those previously considered intractable. This talk aims to provide a tutorial of convex optimization techniques relevant to signal processing, which could be used to identify and formulate convex optimization problems arising in signal processing scenarios, and characterize the structure of optimal solutions to signal processing problems. The talk will also cover some successful signal processing applications to concretely demonstrate the effectiveness of convex optimization and its impact on signal processing.

More info at

Tour #1: Renewable Energy Tour

October 26th 12:30-19:15

The first tour highlights various “Renewable Energy” technologies and provides participants to with the opportunity to visit the following three sites:

  • a 40 MW wind farm consisting of 18 wind turbines
  • a 80 MW solar farm (one of the largest in Canada)
  • a Landfill-To-Energy generation site that uses landfill methane to produce clean energy.

Tour #2: Hydro Power & Energy/Environment Research Tour

October 28th 12:30-16:00

The second tour enlightens the participants on the topics of “Hydro Power & Energy/Environmental Research” through visits to the following two sites:

  • the Fanshawe Hydro Electric Dam
  • the WindEEE Dome which is the world’s first hexagonal wind tunnel capable of highly complex simulations.

Registration is through the EDAS system (note also that new users will need to create an account on the EDAS system).
