IEEE SSCS Oregon Chapter May Meeting and Seminar (Virtual)
May 16th
9:00 AM (1.5 hours)

IEEE SSCS Oregon Chapter May Meeting and Seminar

Join us for a (virtual) talk from SSCS Distinguished Dr. Tim Piessens from ICsense, Leuven, Belgium, on Thursday, May 16th. The seminar will be held from 9:00am to 10:30am (PST) via a Virtual format. Please register for the meeting link and information.

Register via the included Zoom link. You need to register via Zoom (not vTools) to be able to join the meeting.



Challenges in Battery Monitoring Systems for Electrical Vehicles



Electrical vehicles will become the standard in private transport the coming decade. Since the battery is still the main component that will determine cost and driving range, a good battery control is the main component in an eV system.

A battery management system consists of 2 components : a current measurement system and a voltage monitoring system. Both have their own specific problems.

We will first discuss the different techniques to measure current : using a shunt, a Rogowski coil or using a magnetic sensor.

Next the voltage measurement chain will be tackled including techniques for dealing with the high voltages of a battery pack.


Speaker Biography:

Tim Piessens received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Leuven, Belgium, in 1998 and 2003, respectively. During his Ph.D., he focused on a new type of power amplifier/line driver for xDSL applications. In 2004, he co-founded ICsense, where he is the CTO and is responsible for the technical content of projects in the medical, automotive and consumer fields.

His current research interests include analog sensor readouts, non-linear system design, power management, high-voltage design and low-power, low-noise analog front-end design.

From 2014 till 2021, he was a member of the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference Technical Program Committee. He was a member of the ISSCC EU leadership, the ISSCC executive committee and the ISSCC vision committee from 2019 till 2021 and ITPC EU chair in 2021. From 2020 on, he is a member of the ESSDERC-ESSCIRC Steering Committee.

10th Annual Oregon STEM Week
May 4th
9:00 AM (9 days)

Welcome to the 10th annual Oregon STEM Week!

Join us in a statewide celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) activities. We invite K-12 educators to share their exciting STE(A)M activities with fellow Oregonians. Each activity is registered and will appear on Oregon STEM Week 2024 Map. Each registered activity will be entered into a drawing giving Oregon's STEM Teachers an opportunity to win STEM supplies for their classroom.

Thank you for being a part of this inspiring movement to promote STEM education in Oregon!                                  

Advances in Holographic-Type Communications
April 22nd
12:00 PM (1 hour)

Dive into the exciting world of holographic-type communications with Prof. Filip De Turck, an expert in network management and holographic-type technologies. This talk will explore the evolution of video streaming and the shift towards network softwarization, highlighting volumetric media's potential through practical examples. With his extensive background and over 750 publications, Prof. De Turck will address the challenges and opportunities in this field, aiming to inspire collaborative research. Join us for insights into the next-gen communication technologies.



This talk will give an overview of video streaming technologies over telecommunication networks while also taking the important evolution towards network softwarizaton into account.

The importance and the opportunities provided by volumetric media delivery will be outlined by means of several examples.

The most appropriate approach for volumetric media delivery and the various challenges and techniques will be highlighted next.

Finally, an overview of research challenges and opportunities will be presented to stimulate further collaborative research.


Short bio:

Dr. Filip De Turck is a professor at the Department of Information Technology (Intec) of Ghent University and Imec, Belgium, with expertise in communication software, network resource management, adaptive multimedia service delivery, and next-generation video delivery platforms. In this research area, he is involved in and successfully completed many research projects with industry and academia, served as Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM), former chair of the Future Internet Cluster of the European Commission, is on the TPC of many international network and service management conferences and workshops and serves in the Editorial Board of several network and service management journals. Prof. Filip De Turck regularly organizes international workshops on the above-mentioned topics, served as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM), and steering committee member of the IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS), the IFIP/IEEE Integrated Network Management (IM) Symposium, the IEEE Conference on Network Softwarization (IEEE NetSoft) and the IFIP/IEEE Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM). He also served as chair of the IEEE SDN Initiative Conference Committee, which coordinates initiative IEEE events and conferences on Softwarized Networks. Prof. Filip De Turck was named a Fellow of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) for outstanding technical contributions to network resource management and adaptive service delivery and serves as a ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer. He is currently (co-)author of over 750 publications. He received the IEEE ComSoc Dan Stokesberry Award 2021 for particularly distinguished technical contributions to the growth of the network operations and service management field.
