The ECE research team of PhD students Mohammad Najafi and Narges Afsham, Dr. Purang Abolmaesumi and Dr. Robert Rohling won the best paper award at the International Conference on Information Processing in Computer Assisted Intervention (IPCAI).
NSERC has awarded a $1.65 million Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) grant to support the “Silicon Electronic-Photonic Integrated Circuits” (Si-EPIC) program; a research program led by Lukas Chrostowski that will help prepare young engineers for careers in industry, government and academia.
In a recent interview done with Scott Simpson of The Vancouver Sun, Dr. Leo Stocco talks about the advantages of stereolithography: a 3-D printing technology that can produce prototypes of design and parts. Students working with the 3-D technology can quickly see their designs come off the page and into three-dimensional reality. "It just allows you to do really cool, creative things. It's five bucks worth of material. They screw it up, no big deal. I let them print a second one,” said Leo to the Sun.
UBC recognizes outstanding achievement in teaching with the UBC Killam Teaching Prize. The Prize is adjudicated within each Faculty and recognized university-wide. Faculty members are nominated by students, colleagues, and alumni in recognition of excellence in teaching. Congratulations Leo! You can witness Dr. Stocco's enthusiasm for teaching and commitment to his students in these videos.
When Professor David Pulfrey, P.Eng., came to UBC in 1968 as a postdoctoral teaching fellow, he planned to stay only a year. Forty-three years later, he’s retiring from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering after a distinguished career.
Congratulations to Dr. Steve Wilton and Dr. Guy Lemieux whose papers were chosen as two of the 25 most significant papers written in the last twenty years on FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Arrays). The list of significant papers, described as key building blocks in wide use throughout industry and academia, was announced at the 20th International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays, hosted by the Association for Computer Machinery. The papers were selected after a year-long process calling for nominations from the entire FPGA community.
Grand Challenges Canada announced today UBC’s Dr. Walter Karlen is a Rising Star in Global Health—an innovator dedicated to improving health in the developing world. As a Rising Star, he will be awarded a $100,000 grant to further develop his innovation, the Camera Oximeter. Get the full story.
Subject: Disaster Response Network Enabled Platform The Disaster Response Network Enabled Platform can help to save lives around the world by modeling a community’s response to a nature disaster. The platform simulates multiple systems such as: the power network, the electrical network and telecommunications network. All of these systems depend very strongly on each other in normal life but this interdependence is even more evident during large disasters. For example, imagine that, after an earthquake, there is not enough energy from both the hospital and the water pumping station. A decision must be made about how to split the power.
Members of the Electrical and Computer Engineering in Medicine team attended the Annual Meeting of the Society for Technology in Anesthesia this year and brought home two awards. First prize in the Computers in Anesthesia Engineering Competition was awarded to Srinivas Raman, Chris Brouse, Walter Karlen, Mark Ansermino and Guy Dumont for their work entitled "A Data Fusion Approach for RR Estimation from PPG".
