IEEE CS Webinar: IEEE Oregon Section Technical Seminar - Quo Vadis Digital Microfluidic Biochips? From Laboratory Research to Commercialization and Beyond
October 29th
7:00 PM (1 hour)
Online Meeting


Guest Speaker:Krishnendu Chakrabarty, the John Cocke Distinguished Professor and Department Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Professor of Computer Science, IEEE/ACM Fellow, Duke University

Presenting:Quo Vadis Digital Microfluidic Biochips? From Laboratory Research to Commercialization and Beyond


When:Oct. 29th7-8 pm


Digital microfluidics was transitioned to the marketplace for sample preparation by Illumina a few years ago. Since then, this technology has also been deployed by Genmark for infectious disease testing and Baebies for the detection of lysosomal enzymes in newborns. This lecture will describe the journey from early laboratory research, PhD theses and publication of research articles, to technology transfer and licensing to companies.  Today’s microfluidic biochips are fully automated under program control and they can be dynamically reconfigured using sensor data. However, despite these success stories, there still remains a gap between microfluidics research and its adoption in microbiology. The presenter will describe how this gap can potentially be closed with new directions in digital microfluidics, including recent advances in using micro-electrode-dot arrays and acoustofluidics.

Oregon Comsoc: Hybrid Cloud Edge-Service - Platform & Services
November 11th
5:30 PM (1.2 hours)

 This event is a joint event with Open Infrastructure Foundation Portland


The rapid standardization with Kubernetes as the defacto standard for orchestration of Infrastructure Clusters has led to aggressive moves by Industry players to capitalize on Operation Technology innovation. While the infrastructure providers are looking to support carrier-grade cluster operations, hybrid-cloud based control plane has become the least common denominator for autoscaling and day-n life cycle management of Kubernetes services.

In this presentation, Prakash would focus on current trends fueling the Edge ecosystem touching upon open service broker APIs, the emergence of hybrid cloud edge service platform, intent-based edge breakout & user plane functions, etc. The topics covered extends across changes in Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), application services using LTE/5G, infrastructure enhancements required to support carrier-grade cluster operations




Prakash has 35+ years of Telco/ICT experience with MSEE from IIT Bombay. He is Independent Member Board of Director for Openstack for the last 3 years and current chair of Interop WG, Sr member IEEE, Co-chair EAP INGR WG, Program committee co-chair NFV, Edge, 5G for Open Infra summit 2020, Vice Chair 2018,   NFIC-2018 Chair, and has been a veteran consultant on NFV/CNTT, MANO, VIM, Virtualization, Containerization, Microservices, 5G Core/Edge/Access, Network Slicing and Vertical Industry solutions. The companies he has served for include Micronic Devices, IDM, Microdata Consultants, Intelligent System, Tandem, WinVision, AT&T Mobility,, AT&T Labs, Futurewei/Huawei Technologies, and currently at Dell. He was also part of Valley start-ups and other IT /Internet Data Center ventures in the late '90s and early 2000. He brought to the table, the experience of building Platform PoCs using OpenStack ecosystems. He has been a regular attendee of CNCF, OpenStack, OPNFV, 3GPP NFV/MEC, IEEE forums over the last several years in the Bay Area as well as globally in the US, China & India.
